Is selling your work during the holiday season overwhelming?
It doesn't have to be! Holiday gift-givers are just waiting for you to show up, consistently and with authenticity, to help them find beautiful and thoughtfully - created treasures. By telling your story and strategically launching products for the holidays, you can grow and sell to your audience more intentionally than ever before.

You have begun your art career but you feel frazzled and frustrated,
the holidays snuck up on you last year and you got all the ideas but you only had a week or two to get everything ready so you didn't even bother.
I know! I've been there too!
And then you said, "next year, it'll be different, I'll plan ahead and get this thing going early!"
It's now next year! Now it's summer: the kids are home, your family is visiting, your life is busy and you are saying, "I'll plan next month..."
Don't wait, let's make it happen!
Just a couple of hours a week NOW will save you time, energy, and effort in November when you are wishing you had gotten yourself together to bring your beautiful work to your audience.
HERE'S THE BEST PART: We're going to do it together!
Join me for a 4-part LIVE virtual workshop, Thursdays in August, starting August 10th to get you and your art business ready to sell during the holiday season.

“The value you provide is outstanding!”
You motivated me to dig into Holiday as another revenue stream for my business.

I couldn't believe how much I learned from her workshop - from photographing to telling my story, I am ready to do this!
– Kathy (past workshop student)

Sarah was engaging, friendly, and presented the material in an interesting manner. The beautiful examples offered inspired me to move ahead and give the process a try.

Hello friends! I'm Sarah,
I am so excited to walk through this 4-part LIVE virtual workshop with you to help you plan and execute your holiday sales this year! Before I started launching my online Holiday Shop back in 2018 I had no idea that this was even a possibility for me and my art business! Year one I took what my audience was responding to and launched just a few ornaments. Each year I listened and added and now I am excited to launch my holiday shop each year with fanfare and confidence. I want to help you reach your audience this season!
