Hot. Hot. HOT. We have truly dived head first into the depths of hell summer. In Arkansas we have maybe 2 weeks of spring weather and it’s nice (aside from all the pollen) and then the next thing you know it’s 91 degrees everyday with 88% humidity. Geez! I don’t know about y’all, but I really miss my fall wardrobe something fierce.
I’ve had some interesting conversations lately with friends and they have been reminding me to start doing things again that I love doing. It’s easy to forget to do something creative FOR FUN, when you sit in front of a computer all day doing something creative for work.
One of my first jobs outside of college primarily involved designing wedding invitations. A bulk of them were all done by hand, and I LOVED doing it. It may have been stressful and labor intensive (so many paper cuts!) at times, but it felt rewarding to see the final product and even better- to see a big smile on the bride’s face.I love hand lettering and creating things by hand, so I am going to bravely step into the Etsy world and try my hand doing wedding invitations again. I know it’s a pretty saturated market, but I think I can stand out from the crowd. Today I have been brainstorming names for the shop, which has been harder than I thought it would be.
Do any of you have experience with Etsy? If so I would love to hear any tips you might have!
