Selling Time

Since I started this blog I’ve been talking about the creation of my products however, I hadn’t added anything to my online shop. I’m going to be busy adding items to it. I used to use Folksy as an online shop however, many people have recommended Etsy to me so I’m giving it a go. …

Bag Lady

As you can see (below) I have been a wee bit busy this week. I’m all bagged out and I’m yet to print on the majority of them. Printing my own illustrations/designs onto the bags is my favourite par of the process, except for the weird smell that the transfers seem to ‘give off’. When …
