Etsy updated the look + layout of shops today in a really fun way! Of course I have been feeling the need for change as I've been switching the focus of my shop.
You may have noticed a new logo popping up on social media, along with a new pink background. I feel like the more I create and grow as an artist, my business changes along with me. Some people may find it odd that I change things so often, but that's the fun part of owning your own business. I have to right to do whatever I want.
This really hit home recently when I was listening to a She Percolates podcast. Danielle + Jen are seriously awesome, and if you're a creative business person I definitely recommend grabbing a cup of coffee and soaking in all their knowledge + cuteness.
I've decided to shift my focus back to the kawaii aspect of my art, that never really left but I stopped talking about it non-stop after some mean comments. I think it's hard sometimes as an artist + person to keep putting yourself out there. If you've followed me for any amount of time, you'll notice I go from very active to not active at all. This is just introvert me not wanting to deal with the negative vibes cast my way on occasion, and retreating to drink coffee + watch Korean dramas until I work up the courage to deal with this wacky online world again.
I also plan to focus more on all the geeky things I love, as well as stationary! I have always loved stationary and now I have to opportunity through the International Geek Girls Pen Pal Club to write to pen pals all over the world! I want to create more fun stationary + stickers to promote my love of snail mail.
I'm currently working on a monthly virtual zine, new card + fabric designs, and soon a new themed sticker of the month club! Please let me know if there is anything you would like to see + keep up to date by signing up for my virtual zine that will be released later this month!
