My Art on Stickers

The problem with being able to do a lot of creative things and wanting to do them all - graphic design, painting, drawing, etc., is that I end up not completing anything! I start on this project and it's great but then another idea comes up using a different medium and I start working on that... and so on and so forth! This has been a major issue for me this year. Not being able to focus on one project. One of my sisters think I need a manager, but I'm just on my own right now! I have to do everything, including reminding myself to stay focused and stay on one path. It's not so easy when my head is bursting with creative ideas and I want them all to happen!

So, after messing around with different things for most of 2015, like making and selling some planner inserts, selling washi samples and selling bits of stationery here and there, I've decided to focus on one thing - and that's turning my art & illustrations into stickers! Everything else will be on hold until I've got a good system happening with my sticker production - this includes my Planner Things shop. I have plans for this but right now, I've got to stick to just one thing. Because I'm really not good with managing everything at once! Best to keep it simple as possible.

Creating Stickers with Silhouette Portrait

I'm currently in the process of turning some of my existing art into stickers and designing new ones - I wanted to re-open my Etsy store on the 1st of this month of December, but I need more time to polish them all up. So the 12th of December is when I'll re-open, selling stickers!

There are now gazillions of people producing planner stickers on Etsy, but I'm sure there's room for another! Especially, since the planner community appears to be growing at a rapid rate. I've come up with something that will make my sticker sheets different from most and hopefully, it will be recognizable as something created by me. So far, I haven't seen anyone else with what I'm talking about. Maybe it's already out there but I just haven't come across it.

Anyway, for the first week or so of the shop opening, I will include a free sticker sheet for each person who orders. It's a compilation of some of my cute and pretty watercolour paintings (the one you see on the picture above). This is a regular sheet, not a sampler. The standard for my sticker sheets will be 17cm x 12.5cm. Also, FREE SHIPPING for orders $25 or above! I'm hoping to get at least 20 new designs completed when the shop re-opens!

I'm very excited about this because some of my sticker ideas made me laugh! It's mostly fun and stuff that I would use on my planners and things. So here's to a great end of 2015 and a fruitful start to my 2016!!
