Do you ever get those phases where you just feel really inspired to create? That’s me right now and I’m living for it! Christmas is quickly approaching; before you know it it’ll be here and I’m really trying to get myself organised. As a lot of you know I handmake cards. I’ve been working on bulk making Christmas cards and it’s making me feel so festive and inspired. I’ve been using a lot of watercolour paints recently and I’ve been having so much fun experimenting with them. I’m really trying to push my self out of my comfort zone and try new creative techniques. Above is my latest card design, it’s super easy to make and also really quick to make which is a bonus for bulk making!
Getting organised for 2019
At the start of the year, I wrote out my goals for the year and one of them was to open my own Etsy shop. Unfortunately, this hasn’t happened yet as I spent the first 6 months of the year renovating a house so I just didn’t have time. It’s been on my mind a lot recently and I really really want to make it happen next year. With that being said I’ve started coming up with ideas of what I want. Obviously, I want my shop to have handmade cards; but I’m also thinking possibly some prints and stickers etc as well. If you have any ideas of the sort of things you’d like to see then please let me know!
I’m starting to work on the branding. I’ve spent the last week or so brainstorming name ideas and boy is it hard! I want a shop name that is catchy and short and I also don’t want it to relate to my name. I’m currently toying with the idea of Studio Five because I live at number 5 and work from the spare room in our house…. But I’m sure this will change a thousand times haha.
I feel like this post is slightly random and all over the place but I’m just feeling inspired to create and achieve my goals and wanted to share it with you all!
Hope you’re all doing well!
