Mekizo Designs

I am not what you call a daily blogger, I really do need an assistant that has a journalism degree!  I post on Instagram about what I am up to on a daily basis but frankly that is all the time I have, a snap shot of my life.  Sometimes I could go on a big rant and other times I just have nothing to say! Yes me nothing to say!

So this is what I have been up to...

Well the carpet design has its short comings because everyone wants the items yesterday or right now. How do I compete with all the people out there Blogging everyday, putting stuff out on a daily basis and have millions of dollars backing them? Websites selling anything under the sun for free shipping...its fast fashion for carpet its criminal.  I can't compete.... I simply cannot!

So a designer friend of mine posted on social media one day and came upon this new website Shopvida.com She put her art on these products and I have seen this website before but just ignored it thinking its just gonna be one of those selling on line sites.  But now a friend is using it! Now it has credibility and I thought why not put my artwork on garments and be a part of a community. It's easy, it helps create jobs all over the world. So what's their story?




The FAQ is very informative:

I do love that my work hanging in my studio can now be seen by the world. Because before no one can really see my work but my friends and family.  Shop Vida now not only inspires me but motivates me to create more.  I can just be an artist and not get involved with the day to day operations of operating a business.

You can now view my designs on line: https://shopvida.com/collections/mekizodesigns902

Daily discounts are provided, a website made for you and your art is out on every social media...how easy is that!
