Sorting My Life Out


I know exactly what I want to do as a job. I want to sit in my studio working as a freelance print designer, as well as having my own range. This is easier said/typed than done.

This week, I have officially had enough of just plodding along in a job I really don't like. There is nothing worse than knowing exactly what you want to do but the stupid thing that is money gets in the way. If I have no money, I cannot live! SO, I have started helping myself to get to where I want to be rather than twiddling my thumbs and complaining about it. I have set up two online shops - one of which you will see below, and the other UK version will be coming soon. These work as a print on demand service, so whenever someone orders an item, they print it and post it for me, which is perfect! I will also soon be getting a website which I have bought the domain for - it just needs designing and setting up - which hopefully will come in handy in the future.

Third on my to do list is to get my studio finished so I have somewhere to do what I love doing. I really miss painting, hand drawing and generally making a mess! Painting huge pieces of paper and having them hanging all over my walls and just spending days being so creative. I REALLY miss it. I need to get this finished soon as I think it will help to keep me sane!

I thought I'd share with you my prints that I uploaded last night - I did these a couple of years ago but they are some of my favourite designs I have done and thought they would translate well onto homeware and the other items available to sell on Society 6. It is a US based company but they also have worldwide free shipping on at the minute. I have also set up with a similar company based in the UK which I will be available to buy from soon.
 
Everything available here.
 
Hope you like them!
