Ah, day two of work. Still adjusting to the routine and a LOT of stuff going on at once. The biggest thing for me is knowing how to adjust my free time outside of work so I can fully commit to the three goals I set. However, I’m making sure I don’t beat myself up about it for now because I know adjusting takes a while.
In my previous post, I mentioned that one of my daily Three Things was to develop Space Thyme in conjunction with an actual Etsy store, wait for it… Space Thyme. I keep waiting for myself to begin producing items, but I decided to jump the boat and go for it tonight (UPDATE: aaaaaand was held up. I need to create a listing. Will get this done instead after this Thursday when I go to Spudnik Press to get a batch of cards done). I am not exactly sure if I have a clear focus yet. A part of me wants to focus on jewelry, screenprinting items, letterpressing cards, and maybe even designing a few blog layouts. As you can see, I’m a girl of many dreams and the best intentions. The real question is: Can I follow through?
So anyways, hope y’all can hold me accountable.
In the meantime, I wanted to feature a card company that I love. Last week, my boyfriend, S, and I travelled to Nashville, Tennessee, for a quick getaway before I began my new job. I won’t go into details here – more coming soon!
In one of the last stores we wandered into, S and I came across Easy, Tiger cards, which were absolutely adorable. According to their website, they began their company by repurposing old vending machines to sell their tiny 2.5″ x 5″ cards. Then they expanded to sell awesome stuff in general. Things I adore about them (all images link directly to their store Easy, Tiger):
1) Quirky image and text juxtaposition
2) The loving messages with a twist
3) The typography and color schemes
I like unicorns. They like unicorns. Okay pegasus. Same difference.
