Looking forward to the next few months!
I really can't believe how fast everything is happening at the moment! It is so very exciting and also really scary. I now have commission bookings right through to the end of the year! Although I have blocked off December to finish off any commissions, to hopefully sell some prints and gifts for Christmas and to spend time with my family and friends. I love Christmas - it is my favourite time of the year and I am really excited for this year and to see what will happen with my business during this time.
A huge thank you to everyone who has booked commissions or who has supported my business so far - I can't believe it has only been 3 months!
Yesterday I started putting in a lot of orders of stock ready to start doing some fairs and markets now everything is opening up a bit - even hopefully a few country shows if they are still happening this year. I am really looking forward to doing some and seeing how it goes! I am hoping to have a range of items to sell from postcards and greetings cards to giftware such as tote bags, mugs and tea towels - and of course prints and original artwork. I ordered a sample pack of giftware from Artist Gift Printing and I am so looking forward to receiving it and I will post photos when it arrives! From this I will then decide what giftware to order.
I have also ordered a range of prints - my Running Hare, Nosy Cow and some of my Best of Friends artwork that recently won the adult section of Brooke's Donkadoodle. I want to continue to support Brooke - so I will be donating 20% of the sales of this print to their work supporting working horses, donkeys and mules. These prints will also be for sale as soon as they arrive - so keep an eye on my social media!
Finally I am hoping to add a shop section to my website very soon so I can sell my prints, gifts and originals directly. This is the first time I have ever done this so I hope it goes well! This will go alongside my current etsy store and redbubble store.
Thank you all once again for your support and I will be sure to post updates soon!
