Happy February!


Hooray, I sold 2 cards on etsy! This makes me very happy, ok so its not much, but its something! When I started this blog a year ago my designs were mainly sold via an agent, so I remained anonymous, like most textile designers. By selling my own designs I get to keep the copy right. There are growing ways to sell online, which is one big reason why the design market is changing. Yes I want to be independent... say yes to small business! Ok Im getting a bit carried away, Ill talk to you when I have my first wholesale order!

grrrrreat!! Well done on the Etsy sales, Could do with talking to you about how to go about getting an agent/selling in other ways? Whats kind of price do they pay for a card design? Hope you don't mind all the questions, just thinking of other ways I can try to sell?

Oooh well done! My only Etsy sales have been to a friend! Although I haven't bothered to put anything new on it lately because I didn't think it was worth trying to compete with the people on there with 'proper' businesses who always have stuff on the homepage. Anyway, rambling. Well done!

Just a quick note to say thanks. Loved the card and fingers crossed he'll love it too.
