October already

A week of nieces visiting and a vomiting bug has set me back a little (the first lovely, the second most definitely not), but I’m now up on my feet again trying to remember what I’m supposed to be doing.

Still, I’ve been making a bit of progress on my branding for my shop packaging. Take a look at the logo design I’ve come up with here. I also picked up my first batch of giclee prints from the printers last week, which have come out lovely. They’ll be listed in my shop very soon, but in the meantime here’s a couple of photos I took of them.

Don’t forget, there’s more to see over at my facebook page.

Tropical fish prints

tropicalfishprint_greenandpurpleLately, when I’ve not been editing photos for etsy, I’ve been working on some new giclee prints to compliment my greetings card designs. These prints will be offered alongside my cards in different colour-ways and printed at A4 size.

It seems like it’s taken me an age to get my head around all that is involved in opening an online shop (fees, pricing, profit margins, shipping policies and on it goes). I’ve even got a spreadsheet now, which Robin patiently created for me while marvelling at my complete lack of understanding of Excel (sorry Robin!).

But my photos are mostly done, descriptions have been written and my packaging all arrived last week so it’s beginning to seem like I’m actually doing this!
