Shop Reopened!

 ETSY

I've finally reopened my shop! I kept thinking I needed to wait until I've made a new collection + products. I couldn't decide what platform I wanted to use. Stuck in indecision, I just didn't do anything.

I finally kicked myself out of my weirdness and just decided to reopen. I had so much encouragement from everyone, which made me remember people liked some of my older products. I am slowly working on new stuff, but for now you can find some old favorites. (There are new sticker packs and fabric samples available though.)


I decided to use both Etsy + Big Cartel. (Etsy for the marketplace and Big Cartel for my own site that is under my control for the most part.)

Etsy is always making changes, which is hard to keep up with or annoying for sellers + buyers. Big Cartel is a flat fee and super chill, without all the craziness of Shopify. I almost thought about Storenvy again, but last time I ended up charged with so many hidden fees I didn't feel it was worth it. I would recommend trying them out to find what works for you. (End platform rant)

Thank you for the continued support and look forward to new products soon!! xo

New Fabric: Harry Potter Villains


I just got the new sample of my fabric in the mail! I really love how the blue background came out and makes the characters pop!

Someone on Instagram suggested I do non-directional fabric, which I tried on this one. I plan to do a non-directional of my first HP fabric, with a possible colored background. It's on the list of things to do...

You can find the fabric here and the sticker pack here.

The 100 Day Project

Instagram is my jam. I check it a million times a day...one day I saw the #The100DayProject and how many of the artists and creatives I follow were starting this week. I thought this would be a good way to kick start getting out of my own creative run and try something new.

I've been bored with my art recently. It feels repetitive and unoriginal...something is lacking which in turn is making feel depressed about creating in general. I decided to pick a theme for this project that did not involve drawing people. Instead I'm drawing kawaii food!



I even started a Pinterest board, so you can see where I'm getting my inspiration from. So far this project has been fun. I'm not thinking too much about these little drawings, just sketching it out, adding some watercolor and outlining in my Moleskine.

You can find out more about The 100 Day Project here.

PS I've opened my shop + will be adding more as soon as I get the new stuff made! xo
