Happy New Year! [Jan. 2nd, 2017|09:29 pm]
Purple Pony Art

Happy new year! I made it through the first couple days of the new year. 2016 was good for me and bad in some regards. Some years are "gut punch" years and maybe it was too easy to feel constantly kicked with all the celebrity deaths and whatnot. Maybe "transitional year" is a better way of putting it.

I didn't produce a lot of "art art" in 2016, but I was still plenty busy. I expanded my selection of digital download files in my Etsy shop and hit over 200 sales. I love making SVG cutting file packages, but they do take a lot of work. Not only do I have to design them, I have to test them (and sometimes redesign them) and make samples to show off how they can be used. It takes me 2-3 weeks to make a cutting file, but once it's done, it can sell many times :)

I put a lot of extra work into my Etsy shop and it was my best year yet in all regards. If you don't use EtsyRank to fine tune your shop - check it out right now!

I was pleased with the amount of things I got done although I wish it hadn't been such a rainy summer so more photography could happen :) My plan for 2017 is to make more art. Already I have applied to a few different things already and I have the comic expo to look forward to again. Stay tuned!
