I have been working on my 2 Cute Rubber stamps Business! I haven’t had much time to dabble into any other arts and crafts at the moment, though i do need to make a window cling out of some special paints for 2 Cute! Come check out my etsy shop and my blog to see what is new! Above is the Cowboy Kid Cling Cushion Stamp that is now for sale !
So I have been super busy working on 2 cute rubber stamps! I also had my first sale on etsy last week to! I am also very excited that the 2 cute rubber stamp design team is doing a great job creating awesome cards, and scrapbook pages etc… with all my stamp designs! check out my blog, etsy shop and the 2 cute design team at http://www.2cuterubberstamps.weebly.com
So, today I managed to update my craft a day library blog which a few more craft ideas to try. www.craftadaylibrary.blogspot.com. I need to get in the habit of writing a craft every day instead of cramming 3 crafts in one day. It is ok for now, as long as I don’t go more than 3 days! Last night I was working on updating my portfolio and putting watermarks on all my designs, which is something I have been meaning to do but never got around to it. I still need to put water marks on my newest freelance designs and then post them all on 2cutedesigns.
I am also excited because I am going to be working with a design team and even have a design team blog! They are going to help me promote my line of 2 Cute Rubber Stamps “Vintage Cute” and create samples!! I can’t wait for that.
I have also decided that I am going to have my “Stamp Library” on my Portfolio website , where I will post rubber stamp designs that will be available for rubber stamp companies to buy. I think this will work better on that website vs. my 2 cute rubber stamp blog, for I need to keep my rubber stamp line separate from designs that I want to sell to companies.
So I am glad to say I have a few freelance projects lined up for this week. I should have some sketches posted in a few days. I need to create some cute cupcakes, bunnies, friend and kid stamp designs and also some flower/nature designs. So I need to start brainstorming and start sketching these designs out. I am hoping after I do these 10 -12 stamp designs that I will have a nice range of work, that will help me get into working with other rubber stamps companies. I also would like to re-do my portfolio site at some point, but for now I think I will just work on updating all my new designs and look for new companies.
I slacked a bit last week on updating my craft a day library blog. So I just updated it now with 3 new crafts. Gallery Glass, Paint and Peel Window Art and Fuseworks Microwave Kiln. www.craftadaylibrary.blogspot.com.
so I started to crochet those slippers yesterday but I found that doubling the yarn is hard to work with at least right now. so I started over just now and this is what I got so far. I decided I will have light blue on the inside and dark blue on the outside. we shall see if they turn out, if not then I will give the doubling the yarn a second try.
just updated another craft on craft a day library A great step by step tutorial I found online on how to make marble magnets.
I am thinking about buying a crochet slipper pattern that I found on etsy. I have never tried to crochet a pair of slippers but I think it would be fun! If all goes well and I am able to make them fairly quick, I was even thinking of making a few, adding my own creativity and putting them up for sale. I really like the fact that you can make them indoor or outdoor slippers. Once I buy the pattern and make my first set of slippers I will post them here! This pattern is from Mamachee’s etsy shop, www.Mamachee.etsy.com
