New things.....New Shop

I have created a new Etsy shop. The last time I made one was about 3 or 4 years ago, when I decided to call it 'Brown Paper Bag' don't ask why, because I don't know myself. I deleted the shop, made a new one, with another stupid name and a new email address - deleted that, but then was never able to create a third shop because I ran out of email addresses.

For now I am using my 'day job' email address, which isn't ideal, but it will do for now I guess. I am also just using my name, as I decided this wasn't something I would get bored of.

Here you can see some of my listings, plenty more to come, I am still doing all my shrink, but at the moment you will mainly see this over at Folksy.

I have also 'rebranded' everything with a little pattern and hand drawn name, I hope I don't get bored of that too soon.

Recently I have been obsessing over packaging, and Pinterest (you can follow me here if you like) keeps me entertained for hours, looking at all the fancy bags, envelopes and washi tapes. I have just ordered some new stickers for my packaging and fancy little boxes for my earrings, its all very exciting.

I will hopefully have some exciting news about a new supplier soon, if all goes to plan they will be stocking my shrink designs and they want 6 new designs every six weeks, which is scary, but I am quite excited as it will push me to draw more, which is something I sometimes forget to do, especially with all the excitement of a laser cutter and new stockists.
