Yesterday I opened my etsy shop here http://www.etsy.com/shop/PetraKern?ref=seller_info. It doesn’t seem to be big deal to do that: but for me, right now it was a trial. I am laughing now when I remember all those words of girls who made it in the art business. Almost every one told us that all of the sudden your art is put on the side. Now it’s time for marketing, paper works, bureaucracy, finding new ways to sell your work. And suddenly you realised you are still in still is time you have to go to pick your kids and your ponytail you’ve put so nicley together in the morning changed in weirdest hairdo ever.
I am slowly steping to this road: which is sometimes confusing, extremly challenging, sometimes disapointing, but I am loving it (do I sound like MC Donalds?). I am becoming a working mum with new path, new horizons, new schedule … actually new life. I always knew beginnings were hard. And this is hard one to. I can not tell you that everything is shiny and flowery here. It’s not. Sometimes I secretly wish I was born with another talent (lawyers od doctors would be nice) and another longing. But sometimes I am just overwhelmed and enthused by the fact I can put colors and shapes from my head to the paper and I am holding to this feeling like a mad woman :). I just wish that in few years when I will look back I would say that I wouldn’t change a thing.
Here are my preoccupations this month:
1. I opened my Etsy Shop. Yay!
2. I am still working on CafePress shop. This shop is kinda represent my dreams. I always wanted to put my designs on things we use every day. Every design, every description and every pricing should be done separately, that’s why is taking so long, but I am expecting results would be delighted. Here are some sneak peeks. The photos are not in the best shape, but it will be when the store will be officially open. I am having a blast with actually creating “my” products.
