I run two Etsy shops (one for screen printing and one for digital goods), and here is where I post updates about new products and designs, shop announcements, outtakes from photo shoots and occasionally coupon codes for discounts. You can also get more frequent updates right to your inbox by signing up for my newsletter – there may be a secret subscriber discount code in it for you. ;)
I’m still figuring out what I want to do with the Dragonflight Dreams screen printing shop this year. But I know one thing for sure: the one of a kind shirts need to go. They are great- bright and colorful, and an important step in my shop-running process. But they’re also taking up valuable shelf space and shop space. All of the OOAK shirts (tanks, tees, and long sleeve) have been marked down to sale prices. They are already printed and heat-set, so are ready to ship.
AND, as of today, you can take an additional 16% off with code DDCLEAR16.
Help me make room for new and exciting things to come in 2016!
Last year, one of the things I decided to do with my shops was donate a portion of proceeds to a different charity or cause each month. Over the course of 2014, between the shop proceeds and my own contributions, I donated around $400 to worthy causes. However, dividing that up between so many different groups meant each group didn’t really get that much. This year I’m changing it up. I’ll still be donating a portion of shop sales, but I’m going to do it quarterly instead of monthly. I’ve also decided to keep it local. So here are the […]
Help me pick the next design for the shop! I have a few ideas roughly sketched out, thanks to last month’s craft shows where I was running solo but remembered to bring my sketchbook. But I thought it’d be fun to see what you guys thought I should focus on/clean up first. Here are the choices: [merlic_poll id=”9139″]
Between Thanksgiving and Christmas (and being stuck inside because its too cold to go anywhere), this time of year is all about spending time with family. Sadly, some people do not have loving or safe home environments. The idea of spending a happy holiday with family, or at least not spending it in the hospital from injury, is a foreign idea to some. So this month, the beneficiary from my shop sales is going to be Safe Horizon.
Just a reminder for you local folk: this weekend, aside from Black Friday and Small Business Saturday, also features Shop Local Sunday. And you can do just that at the ATX Artisans Holiday Market. ATX Artisans is an Etsy team of **all local** artists and makers dedicated to creating handmade, quality goods. This is our 2nd annual holiday market and one of the very few all-volunteer, artist-run markets in Austin. We’ve got roughly 50 different vendors who make all sorts of different things. You can see the full list of vendors here. This year our show is also supporting the […]
First and foremost, don’t forget you can find me this Saturday at the Rockin’ Around the Holiday Bazaar in Round Rock, TX. More details here, and you can RSVP/share the even here. I’d love to meet some of my blog readers and shop fans in person! You can print off this postcard and hand it in at the entrance to be entered for a door prize: Secondly, Annie’s Artist Lookbook did a wonderful surprise write-up on me and my shop, which you should go check out. Thanks, Annie! And last, if you haven’t already seen, holiday-themed items and stocking stuffer […]
In case you missed it at the start of the year, one of the things I’ve decided to do with my shops this year is donate a portion of all sales to charities or causes that I support. Regular blog readers are probably aware of this, but I am a huge bookworm. Curling up and reading a new book is one of my favorite things to do. I love writing, too, and have even attempted November’s NaNoWriMo a few times. The idea that there are adults out there who can’t even read well enough to fill out a job application […]
