Hello dear readers! It’s Monday at 3:00 am as I’m typing this post out. Normally, I don’t write this much but the insomnia has kicked in. When you don’t sleep, there’s a lot of hours in the day to kill. All 24 of them. The migraines have also been terrible so my hours are out of whack.
What have I been doing to keep sane? I’m keeping my hands busy with daily art projects and learning new skills. I bit the bullet and upgraded to the PRO membership with Canva.com – and I am loving learning all the things you can create with it.
I’m also excited to announce that I’ve opened a brand new Etsy store. Some of you may recall that I had tried to open one last year but I gave up easily. I’m proud to announce the grand opening and am offering a 30% discount. And I even got my first sale of the year!
So, you’re asking – what am I selling? That’s a great question! Right now I’m focusing on digital products. But as time goes on, and the store expands, I’d really like to design some gifts and merch for this site like hats, mugs, journals and notebooks. I’m also going to be working on a series of inspirational posters, templates for fitness plans, and trackers. These are hot items on Etsy.
I’m still trying to find a reliable and good print on demand service in Canada for shipping in North America. If you have someone you can recommend – please let me know.
I’m also looking to connect with other local Etsy shop owners and build a community where we can support each other’s businesses and help each other grow.
How can you support this business adventure?
By buying one of my products of course! These products are all extremely affordable. Many of the products can be custom edited or used in your own designs or for use in greeting cards. For the right price, I can also custom design something for your business needs.
Home Decor, Home Living
On sale up to 30% – high resolution images that can be used for wall art, home decor or home living. These images were created using Corel Painter and Canva.com. Why pay for shipping when you can print from the comfort of your home? Choose the frame you want and hang in any room in your home! These original art pieces can be purchased for $6.50 each (Canadian).
Please visit the Etsy store to check for prices as Pinterest doesn’t reflect the most up to date price.
Printable Greeting Cards
If you’re looking for DIY printable greeting cards for any occasion, I’ve got a small collection of cards that can be printed or edited using Canva.com. Make sure to check out the products on Etsy. for accurate prices.
Prices vary from $3.50 – $5.00 CDN.
Custom Wall Art – Printable Quotes
I’ve started a new collection of printable quotes! You can download instantly as is – or you can edit these posters using Canva.com. These posters are all the rage on shop sites like Etsy. They are perfect for your home office, study or even dorm room. Affordable art for your home with just the click of a button.
Grand Opening Sale
I’m so pumped up for this. I’ve wanted to open an art shop for many years but didn’t believe that I could. I really believe that now is the time – and by way of this blog, I hope to learn more about marketing and graphic design, gain some more clients and customers – and share what I’ve learned while on this adventure with you.
I’ve decided to offer up to 30% on home decor products and up to 15% off on custom poster art and greeting cards. This is still a work in progress and I am still trying to figure out what a fair price is for each item. This is a continuous work in progress but I am so happy to share this with you!
Thank you so much for all the new supporters. I love hearing from you all!
