Hey Everyone! It has been so long since I have posted! I have been crazy busy getting new things going. Back in July, I quit my full-time job to stay home and focus on my kiddos. I feel so lucky that we were able to make it work, so my kids could stay home for virtual school. Our oldest son passed away from a virus without any symptoms four years ago, so we are trying our best to keep us all as healthy as possible during Covid. We are hoping things get better here soon so they can get back to a normal school day. Until then, I will soak up every minute with them that I can get while they are at home.
Since my kids are learning virtually, I do have a little extra time to focus on my art and business. This is very exciting for me! Over the past couple of years, I have taken classes to practice my digital hand lettering. I have also been working on my drawing skills. This has provided me with the confidence to open an online shop to sell printable greeting cards and coloring pages. I digitally hand letter all of the cards and create the artwork myself on my iPad. I love what I have created so far and I hope you do too!
It is already Fall, so I have my Halloween greeting cards and coloring pages up on my shop. (How is it that time of year already?) I am especially excited about my Halloween coloring pages. I specifically remember having a Halloween coloring book as a kid and it had an adorable picture of Frankenstein to color. He was so cute that I couldn't bring myself to color him in. So, I did my best to trace him so I wouldn't ruin the coloring book. (Clearly, my anxiety issues have been with me since I was a child and are not new to me now.) By the time I was done tracing, I was too tired to color him in. I love that now I can create printable coloring pages, for adults and children, to be printed off as many times as people would like. This allows people to recreate the same picture several different ways! I love that!
I found a newer marketplace named "GoImagine" where I can sell my digital products. There are lots of other handmade items from other sellers. The great thing about GoImagine that really caught my eye is that 100% of transaction fees are donated to charities helping children in need. This does not cost the customer or the seller anything additional. This is something that I am very passionate about and I love that there is a marketplace that feels the same.
Please feel free to click here to check out my shop and find my greeting cards and coloring pages. I am just getting started building up my shop, so I have a lot more products to get posted and I am currently working on some Fall/Thanksgiving products to add soon! So check back often or head over to my Elephant Shoe Corner Facebook page and like and follow so you can keep up-to-date with my news, new items, and coupons that will only be available on my Facebook page. Thank you so much for visiting!! I will be posting again soon!
