Sneak Peeks, A Business Card & Small Business Life
I hope you had a great weekend and a nice Monday. In fact I'd love to hear how you spent it. I was pretty busy. I've been working on new designs, block prints, digital prints and invitations both for my shop and freelance. (I'll post these soon). Though pleased, I've realized I need to stop and take it easy. Not that this work is hard, it isn't and I love doing it. But paired with my full-time job and other things I felt overwhelmed on Sunday. Not just the actual creating, (I enjoy that) but some other things. I also felt sharing this on the blog is useful and helpful because I'm sure I may not be the only one. Though productivity is a great thing I'll be honest and admit to you that some emotions came up which I've since realized and let go. And I'm very grateful.
I've realized I want to shift my focus or do business a little differently. I think wholesaling is definitely a route I'd like to take. As I figure all this out one thing I know for sure is I love blogging and communicating with you through it! In fact I'd love for you to share with me your goals and how you time manage. What are your priorities with your Etsy/online shop, your family, your blog, your art, your crafts and anything else? If you're a small business owner I'd love to hear the everyday ins and outs from your perspective.
In the meantime above are sneak peeks of new work and my new business card. I printed a very small amount. I think the next business card will be handmade. Your thoughts are always appreciated!
