Illustrated Birthday Calendar

So sorry I did not make it to write a blog post last issues came up I had to take care of. Back at my desk for a few days already and it is getting very busy over here, less than a month until Christmas. 
I guess everyone is feeling the rush right now. I am happy to show you my latest project : a perpetual birthday calendar you can buy now from my Etsy store
It is an instant download and makes a perfect Christmas gift. So no need to leave the house and join the crowds in the city. Plus you support an individual artist and not the big box retailers.

Thank You

It was my birthday this week and I received so many lovely birthday wishes and gifts...unexpected ! 
I was overwhelmed by all the love from family and friends. 
To show my appreciation I designed Thank You cards and I very much enjoyed doing it. 
Here you can see one example.

Etsy Shops

This week I have been working on opening my Etsy store...I have to admit I was procrastinating for a long time. 
I read a lot about opening an Etsy store and I remember reading, you should not try to be perfect in the beginning, just open your store and go from there. 
For a perfectionist like me this is easier said than done but in the end I did it. 
Starting with some digital products so far I have 6 products ready to sell. My dream is selling actual products, handmade by day !
Since Christmas is around the corner I designed some circle shape gift tags which also work as cupcake toppers.
12 round gift tags available as digital files on Etsy

You will also find a variety of Washi tapes for your craft projects.

Digital Washi tape available on Etsy.

Reading so much about Etsy and looking at a lot of shops, I want to share my favourite shops with is just the beginning...there is so much amazing art available on Etsy, I could literally spend days looking at all different kind of Etsy shops.

Have fun shopping on Etsy and Happy Thursday !
