crafts, bookmarks, jewelry, ghosty, and lots of other stuff

The road is long

Yes, it’s time for a random update post about stuff I’ve completed, and stuff I am still reaching towards! First of all; I’ve made a lot of bookmarks. Like… A LOT! It’s so much fun, even though it takes up a lot of time. I think I’ve made enough for now though, as I have no idea where to put them all. Maybe I should start looking for a box of a bigger size than what I have now when visiting flea markets? Yeah, I’ll do that.

This should also be the month where I open my Storenvy! My boyfriend ordered a lightbox last month, and it should arrive within the next 1-2 weeks. He’ll then help me with some product photos, and I should get started on creating some listings. It would be impossible to get all my stuff up within just a few days though, so I’m thinking about taking a little bit of everything for a start, in order to showcase what I have, and what is to be expected in the future.

What I already have created though, are products on Redbubble and Society6. 12 Ghosty designs have found their way onto both accounts, and it’s now possible to buy various products with the little fellow. This also means that I have changed the shop page here on the blog, as I want it to be more prominent on mobile devices. While the position in the menu doesn’t matter that much on a PC, it sure makes a difference on a smartphone! It’s now at the very top of the drop-down menu, and I hope it helps in terms of visibility. Ghosty would sure love to see the world!

Now that I’ve completed a lot, and have plans for the near future, I’ve started thinking some more about that button machine. I think I’ve mentioned it before, but I really want one! I love buttons, and I’d like to create my own, not only for sales purposes, but also for personal benefits, as well as helping others. Helping others? Yes, I would like to offer button press services to others, where it’s possible to order small amounts for re-sale at cons or online shops, instead of having to buy large quantities at a professional press shop for a lot of money. Money that artists starting up a shop or booth don’t have. So yeah, that is my FAR future goal, because a button press of good quality is expensive. I’m going for a 1.25” model for about 400$ (with circle cutter and pieces for 500 buttons), and every cent I can collect on my PayPal will be saved up to reach this goal… after I’ve paid for hosting of course *sob*

That’s it for now! So what do you think? Can I get a button machine if I work hard enough? I sure hope my Storenvy is going to be successful, and that my dear Ghosty will find some nice homes around the world. Oh, I’m also planning new designs for him, and am open to new ideas if you have special wishes 🙂
