I decided to just set up an etsy shop about a week & a half ago & dabble around in it a bit. I mean, isn't it just the greatest little source for inspiration and 'a way of means' to materialize your creativity? I am still working on the site, but last week made my first sale on an invitation! wahoo. It wasn't for much, but it got me more enthused.
I decided a few months ago, that while I still have a whole lot to learn, I want to expound, dive in, & try to tackle improving & selling some of my graphic designs. I have gotten to create, play with, & design for friends, and I love it too much... so I thought, golly, why not?
Right now, I am focusing on becoming more proficient in Illustrator. I feel like I have a pretty full understanding of photoshop & dreamweaver, but was sorely lacking in the good 'ol vector field. I am not fully comfortable in it yet & am slowing working through tutorials when I have a free moment at home... I purchased a little classroom book to chug through, as well. Growing in a new subject makes me miss school & learning more than I thought...
So in the mean time, sorry if this blog has been & will be a tad bit neglected... I feel like I have just been "blog acting" lately. {What is blog acting? My definition: re-posting things you find that, yes, are inspirational & interesting, but are not my own to claim. I can make up that verb, right?} My apologies for that.
So, all this to say, I'm excited to maybe earn some extra ice cream money on the side & have fun while doing it. I'll put the link up to my shop later when I get a few more items up.
Happy Monday!
PS - Don't get me wrong, there is NOTHING wrong with sharing ideas and reposting, heck I do it alot, will continue to & LOVE it, its just ALL I have been doing. Again, sorry folks. I am a firm believer in sharing concepts & images.. there really is no such thing as an original idea, its a give & take of creativity. :)
