When giving advice to those who also want to become fulltime illustrators/artists/designers, I always say that you have to be willing to work long hours and that you really have to love what you're doing to make it work.
Today is a great example because I have been working since 8am and am just now wrapping up my day at 10pm. The last 4 or 5 days have been much like this, very much a labor of love but still I wouldn't trade it!
And the fun thing is, I have lots of new stuff to roll out!
Today I received a pretty bunch of Alice in Wonderland postcards:
I had them printed out of house and although they are GORGEOUS the printer neglected to round the corners of the Queen of Hearts postcard so I am awaiting replacements. Until then I've popped the postcard pack up in the shop for pre-order. For the time being, I've only got 12 sets available so grab one if you want one!
And this also brings me to a new packaging design for stationary sets. This only applies to 3.5 x 5 and 4.25 x 5.5 sets. These sets will now be packaged in pretty clear plastic boxes, just in time for holiday gift-giving! Right now, the Alice in Wonderland postcard packs are the only ones available with this packaging. But over the next month I will be adding the packaging to other sets as well. In the meantime, if you're already ordering holiday gifts, just left me know and I will be happy to tuck your notecards into a pretty plastic box!
Oh aaannnnddddd I've got new bookplates and lables to share tonight, something I've been planning for a bit now:
I hope you enjoy the new offerings!
And now, it's time for me to close up shop for the day and relax :)
