for sale!

So this weekend I did something kinda scary....
I opened an Etsy shop.

Maybe scary isn't the right word. I'm really excited about it, and anxious to see how it goes.

A few weeks ago I decided I needed a little side hobby to keep myself busy and entertained. Something that was fun and me and fulfilled my creative itch.

After spending an afternoon designing my own personal Christmas Year-In-Review Newsletter, I realized that maybe I had a knack for this kind of thing. I always see cute ideas in magazines and on design blogs, but instead of spending way too much money for someone else to make it for me, I just go and design my own. And 9 times out of 10, I like mine better than the original.

So I thought I'd take a risk and try to sell my designs. For now I've only listed my Christmas Newsletter, but I've got a bunch of other prints and projects in the works.

When I think about my shop, I want it to be known for two main things.
[one]: Being affordable. I'm not trying to make a million dollars or rip anyone off. I have fun designing these prints, and I think they turn out pretty cute, so I thought I'd share.
[two]: Creating personalized/custom pieces. All the prints and designs that I make for my own home are very ME. I think everyone's personal space should have their name written all over it! So I'll customize anything for anyone, to make it more them.

Feel free to check it out, especially if you're a procrastinator like me and have yet to send out your Christmas cards:

Hope you like it!!!
