Yay me!

I sold a card on Red Bubble! Three to be specific, to a complete stranger! This is kind of a big deal for me, as I've never really sold any of my art online before. I'm so chuffed! I really like Red Bubble, all I have to do is upload the work and they do the rest, I recommend it highly for anyone who wants to sell their photography, illustration, graphics or t-shirt designs. I think it's wonderful considering I was only yesterday feeling bad that I don't promote my page there enough, and I've only been there less than a month.

A good time for this to come too, since my credit card will be arriving in the mail this week. This means I can finally set up and launch the Etsy shop! I have around 8 pairs of earrings and twice that much of necklaces- I'd like to make more before I launch. I don't think there will be much else besides these and my box assembleges from the exhibition- I may find the time to make up some collage cards, but i think clothing might have to wait unitil I've moved house. Perhaps I could do some wrist cuffs and brooches too...oh, I'm getting waves of inspiration now!

I estimate that the shop will be launched March 17th. Only a month past my expected deadline, which isn't so bad when you consider that I didn't plan for chaos, and you should always do so. I'd like to figure out how to do a mailing list, if anyone has any suggestions as to how to best go about that (or want to be on it!) please do comment and let me know.

I hadn't heard of Red Bubble. I'll have to check it out.

Mailing list....hmmmm...Can you add somewhere to your invoices, blog, etc, a place for people to say they'd like to be on a mailing list? You might only have a few people at first but it will eventually grow!

Congrats on your first red bubble sale.I'm not on red bubble but do have an etsy shop & I know how exciting it is when you make a sale! I'd love to be on a mailing list for your etsy shop, but just keep looking for the opening announcement on your blog. Good luck with it all...your work is awesome.
