Today my head has been filled with design. I’m preparing to open my shop, and I’m frantically working to get everything ready. Yesterday I finished up a Spring themed mini-kit. Today I started a full sized kit all about the chicken pox… I really do enjoy designing. Well… the designing part of it anyway.
I’m sure it’s a sentiment felt by many creative types who also run a business. The creative side of things fuels us, keeps us going in so many ways. The business side of things is simply a necessary evil. That’s how I feel about the organizational side of design.
Creating elements, creating papers, designing overlays, and custom products… it’s all a fabulously zen thing for me. Photography gets me revved up, designing relaxes me – two sides of the creative coin. But organizing my product so it’s ready to sell? Ugh. I wish I could hand that end of it over to someone else. It takes me far longer than it should simply because I don’t enjoy it – and I end up putting it off and then have several products that all need work at the same time. LOL I won’t complain too loudly though. I’m pretty blessed to be able to do what I do.
So watch for me soon. I’ll be setting up shop at the Plum. Opening day will soon be upon us. 🙂
