Greetings and Thanks to everyone that made your very gracious purchases from my Etsy or MyBigCommerce Online Store, as I handle my emergency situation, and, as I still practice my art work, research and develop my online class and e-commerce business model for self supporting Artist.
I haven't had the time to finish my CrowdFunding Campaign yet, but it will be up soon to explain my emergency situation and my present practice and artist mission thus far.
