How to find my stuff!

Hi folks! A lot has changed since I last posted, yeah? :p

In this time of world wide weirdness, I’ve stepped away from shipping things and I’ve shifted my focus to downloadable and printable things, as well as some print on demand stuff. I’m working on being as widely available to folks as possible.

I’ve talked about this before a bit-my education is in graphic design, and it’s something I’m relatively good at, although my focus, as always, is more on the crafty side. I’ve been making a lot of “scrapbook papers” and stuff made to be used in Cricuts and the like.

So I want to give you folks one post that has all the ways you can buy my stuff or otherwise support my work. 🙂

First and foremost, here’s my Ko-fi page. Ko-fi is cool for a lot of different reasons. Recently, they’ve given us the chance to have a shop, so you can get some random different digital things. Also, it gives the option for folks to just drop a buck or two in my direction if you want to support my work but don’t really do the digital thing. 🙂 It’s also where you’ll find any freebies I toss up. 🙂

Next up is TeeSpring. This is where you can buy shirts and stuff with different designs by me. This rotates fairly frequently, so check often. 🙂 I like TeeSpring because they carry a really wide variety of sizes and colors and things.

Lastly, check out Zazzle. Here’s where you’ll find all my paper designs and stickers and other things. Their papers come in different styles and sizes and the quality is pretty good, so this is the way to go if you want physical copies of my paper designs and stickers and cards and whatnot. I’ll also throw in random odd things (Like masks etc lol) from time to time.

I still have Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, as well as Pinterest. All of these links will be available on the sidebar, so now you have plenty of ways to check out what I’m doing. 🙂

Folks, I really appreciate your support, especially now when everything is so weird for all of us, and I look forward to showing you more and more cool things.

A year of change

This is the time of year that folks most often want to do some reflection, so I’ll take a minute and do that. 🙂

It’s definitely been eventful for the Autumn-Born household. My husband and I have both had surgery this year (We’re both doing great!), I was diagnosed with a chronic illness a little over a year ago, and that’s been its’ own adventure (Again, I’m doing really well! 🙂 ), so, of course, my creative endeavors seem to be most affected.

I have decided that I’m not going to be selling nail polish over the net anymore. It’s been increasingly cost prohibitive for me. :p I will still be carrying it at Sassafras & Sage in Angola, Indiana, though, so if you ever make it this way, you will still be able to get things. 🙂

So, in that vein, I’ll be revamping my Etsy site soon. I’ll be putting up felt stuff, probably after Christmas, though, because Sass & Sage has a couple events coming up.

I’ll also be adding digital, downloadable stuff, like scrapbooking “papers” and things you can use on your Cricut, or whatever. I’ve really missed the graphic design stuff.  I’m VERY out of practice, but it’s nice to be getting back in the swing of things.

In an effort to stay ahead of medical bills (Even with insurance, surgeries and hospital stays are EXPENSIVE), I’ve also got a couple other things going.

The first is my TeeSpring storefront! I’ve got different t-shirt designs/stickers/all sorts of things.

 

Next is my Ko-Fi page.  I’ll be adding different digital goodies, some for free, some you’ll be able to see/use with a small payment (Either one time, or monthly, as low as a dollar!). It’ll be social media stuff, Cricut usable stuff, and other digital odds and ends that’ll lean towards the nerdy and the pagan, with smidges of whatever else strikes my fancy. 🙂

I’ll be sure and post here, too, when I update the Etsy shop, and when I add new things to either TeeSpring or Ko-fi.

Thank you folks, so so much, for hanging around no matter what direction my creative shit goes. I am eternally thankful for you folks. ❤

A little bit of felt

I really enjoy wet felting. I love starting from raw wool roving and ending with whatever I want to create. Today I want to show you folks a pair of wristlets I made.  I really love the grey scale/vivid color combo and when I got a bit of a super vivid pink wool in a sample bag I ordered, I knew I had to do something cool and 80’s like with it.

 

I love the way these turned out. I added little bits of silk thread in places, and I hand-spun some of the pink wool into a little length of yarn to add some texture to them.

I definitely plan to make more wristlets because they’re so fun. Next time, though, I’ll show you one of the little bags I’ve been making!
