The Shiny Bits
One day ahead of my original schedule, I am opening up a little shop today. A Monday is a fine day for beginnings, and though my stomach is in knots over it, there's no reason to hold back any longer. I know that over time I will get better, know more, be able to offer more, understand more of what I am doing, but if I wait until I know all of that, just like the line from Friday's post, I will be waiting forever. I meant what I said on Friday, and so it's time to leap.
I am starting small, with a handful of digital files, a smattering of custom offerings, and a small lot of originals, some of which will one day be digital files themselves. There is very little perfection happening in the shop right now, but that doesn't mean there isn't a lot of goodness, so I've been thoughtful with my pricing, especially after receiving some really great feedback.
I've got room to grow, but I am so excited about that opportunity. For now, I invite you to please visit my humble digs, support the shop if you can, or if it isn't your cup of tea when it comes to ownership, or you are unable to right now, maybe just leave me feedback? I can imagine that the weaker side of my heart and mind will be winning tomorrow, so I will welcome all the encouragement I can get.
Thank you, once more, to all of you, for everything.
It's like fumbling around in the dark looking for the light switch for a really long time, only to discover there were matches in your pocket all along. Sometimes we need someone else to whisper (or scream) light the match.

And, don't forget that you can pick up doodle mini flair in Elise's shop and get some of her other awesome flair while you're at it!
