What do you do when your chopping boards are a bit grim and need replacing? You make a side table, naturally.
It all started with a vision. A vision to create something beautiful and avoid going to the recycling station. I was envisioning a win-win scenario whereby I could let flow my creative juices, make something out of, let face it, junk and save the environment by not throwing perfectly good wooden IKEA chopping boards away.
I was going to write about Call Me by Your Name (go read the book, it’s beautifully written. Then watch the movie), but I have something else that I need to get off my chest. It is by no means more important than discussing the contents of the aforementioned book and movie, but it’s taking up my mind as of this morning more so than what I’ve read through the past month.
Last week I attended DeliverConf in Manchester, a conference all about project delivery or in other words “a conference for people who strive to lead, inspire and deliver value with their teams”. It had been a couple of full on weeks, so going to a city I’ve never been before and getting the opportunity to get a fresh perspective on things were certainly welcome.
Since the opening of the second exhibition at ART Fabrik, I had very positive feedback on my cards and also saw reactions from people seeing my animals for the first time. I took note and decided to iterate on the one that sold the fastest, since I hadn’t really done that ever since first drawing them by hand.
Et voilà, the newest additions to the fluffy owl bunch has arrived!
A couple of weeks ago my shop went live with the fox and the camel greetings cards. There is also a post to go along with it, if you fancy a quick read.
I mentioned, that I’d be doing some special editions and they are now available.
…walk into a bar…
I’ve done it, look, ma, my first greetings cards are done and online!
Yes, that’s right, I’ve got a little shop on here and if any of you fancy it, head on over and grab some.
It is still very rudimentary, covering only the basics, so bear with me whilst I get this place spruced up a little.
