Thank you willowe. Smiley
zlimone, that's a good idea, and one I've thought of before... but I really want to start expanding my line of designs, so that might get cost prohibitive pretty quickly as i make more and more different designs.
So I think I will keep the matching stickers, and maybe do matching envelope COLORS, but without the printing on the envelope...
This one is my latest... a whale and a sea monster exchanging salutations. Smiley Blue envelopes to match, and stickers too.

Sinjah, it makes me REALLY SAD that I won't be able to print on the envelopes anymore... that was one of my favorite parts about the whole thing. Sad
The stickers are those printable labels, and I put my illustrations in in word and adjust them until they fit the right way on the circles. Then after I print them, I peel away the "edges" so just the circles are on the page.

Thanks so much everyone!

Landofoz, people kept telling me I had such a cute drawing style and I was like "What? I can't even draw a person!"
But then I realized that my doodly style WAS cute and I didn't HAVE to draw people (though I still want to learn how). haha. Maybe you don't HAVE to trace straight lines... just try drawing something curvy!

Thank you so much! I print them out myself.
We recently got a better-quality printer though, which is good and bad... good because it's great quality, but bad because for some reason it hates envelopes. So after this batch, matching envelopes are a goner. So sad, because I love them!

I'm so excited that I finally got good pictures of these. I've had them finished for a while, but it took about 5 photo shoots with different lighting and different backgrounds for me to be happy with the photos.

I did the illustrations on paper with pen, then digitally colored them and arranged everything on my computer. I love the stickers!





What do you think?

Yup, the 19.99 plan. I signed up for the 9.99 one but filled up the 25 products in 1 day... that's how fast it is to add new things!!! So 100 products it is!

I'm planning to really start advertising it soon, and then hopefully things will kick off nicely!

What a lovely shop, joyful abode!  It looks so professional and "clean".... how long have you been doing that, and how is it working out for you so far?

Thanks! I love that it is so clean looking too! I just put everything up last week and I haven't started my ad campaign yet (but I know where I'm going to advertise), but I'm super-excited!

Abode, so listing items on Big Cartel is easier and you pay a fixed monthly fee, but how are sales? Is the site well visited? I never heard of it before, but it looks interesting.

It's not a community site like etsy... it's basically a hosted webshop, not an online shopping mall. You have to get the traffic there yourself! I figured I'll be ok, because I plan to advertise in several places (haven't started that yet), and my blog has almost 500 subscribers, and over 1000 pageviews each day. We'll see how it goes!

I haven't visited this thread in forever!

As far as my etsy shop goes... I've decided to kind of not do it anymore, in favor of a bigcartel shop using my own domain. Etsy takes SO LONG to add new products (and 5 pages for one item?) that I never ever wanted to do it. Plus, I have multiples of things and didn't want to pay $2.00 to list my 10 packages of the same design recipe cards, just so they could expire in 4 months.

Because bigcartel is a flat fee per month (no listing fees or sales commissions) it's really motivating to get everything in the shop (instead of just sitting in my closet)

BUT... I'm keeping my etsy account because I love the forums and an etsy team I'm in. It would be hard to leave the community there! (And of course, Christmas shopping is fun on etsy. hehe.)

Ohh, yay! EmmaH, you are a prolific commenter. Smiley Good to see you here!

urvi, for the tree stencil, I found a tree punch that I liked and used that with freezer paper. Then I ironed the freezer paper stencil onto each napkin, used it, and peeled it off when the paint was dry. After my little accents were dry, I heat-set each napkin with my iron (front and back)... long process, but it was worth it! I also washed a few of them to test the ink to make sure it was set properly, and they came out perfectly!

Thanks so much for everyone's nice words! I agree that they'd be great as housewarming gifts OR hostess gifts! Also would be great with some recipe cards and a bottle of wine as a wedding gift.

doaflip, do I know you from somewhere else? :-P Are you a blog friend? hehe.
