My Etsy Shop is Open for Business

Between, crafting, teaching, blogging, work and now owning a shop, I hope I can juggle everything gracefully.

Before I tell you the great exciting news, a lesson to learn:

A Life Lesson for Opening a Business
My shop has been opened for a month or two, and considering the inventory it had, I got an OK viewing audience. But with no sales, and little interest (and a similar real life situation currently happening) I realized a slow, gradual opening is never the way to go.

They say “Start Small”, but they’re talking in the grander scheme of things. So, whether you’re opening a Pizzeria or a cyberstore, THINK BIG!

As my dad always says, “No Pain, No Gain”, so I’ve stocked up and scheduled a grand opening SALE!!! That’s right! A TWO-WEEK event starting April 2, 2013: all shoppers will receive 20% OFF every item!

My shop’s name is Mellow With a Punch. I had asked my friend Trevor how he would describe me and that’s what he came up with. Not only does that phrase fit me like a glove, but it’s the personality in my work as well.

My shop features ceramic objects, and paper goods including artist books, prints and hand-bound journals!   Click the photos to below to be linked to the item in my store!

Whether you need a little something to brighten your day, or a gift for a friend, my shop has just what you need!

Happy Shopping!!!

Craft Fair for a Degenerate

I’m happy to announce that I will be participating in this year’s Degenerate Craft Fair.  It was founded in 2009 by my drawing teacher and artist, Amy Wilson.  The fair features over 50 artists and vendors exhibiting crafts, small works of art and unique gifts perfect for giving this holiday season.

DCF
I will be selling paper goods and ceramic goods alongside my best friend Maddy, who will be selling candles and lanterns.

I hope to see you all come out and buy your holiday gifts at the DCF!
