If you’re subscribed to my newsletter, you’ve already heard the news. But if not, there is a reason things have a been a bit slow around here lately.
Jordan and I have been working a little side project that’s been taking up a lot of our extra time (or time that I normally would blog). Don’t worry, I’ll still be blogging, just backing off a bit till we get this thing going.
You’re probably wondering what said thing is though, right? Well, we’re opening an Etsy shop together.
Jordan was gifted with an eye for photography, especially when it comes to capturing nature. I mean seriously…how pretty are these flowers? He’s got some pretty stunning ones that I can’t wait to share with you.
And as I’ve mentioned, I’ve been teaching myself watercolors. It’s such a peaceful, therapeutic process for me to paint. And Jordan has noticed the same thing when it comes to him going out and taking pictures.
The past month or so, God asked us to jump and turn these gifts into a business. It sounds crazy and half the time I can’t believe we’re actually doing this.
But in the end, we both have a peace about this and know deep down we’re moving in the right direction.
Pebble Creek Prints
After much brainstorming, we decided on the name Pebble Creek Prints. For now we’ll be selling prints of Jordan’s photography and my watercolor paintings. I’m seriously considering cards too, because I just love beautiful note cards.
The goal is to launch the shop on October 31st.
It’s amazing how much goes into starting something like this. I feel like I’m drowning in the process of figuring out scanning, editing, printing and all those other technical details of digitizing physical artwork.
I’m having fun figuring out packaging and our logo and other branding type things (which I’ve had more experience with and isn’t so new/scary).
If anyone has any tips or tricks, I’m totally open to hearing them.
You can also join our email list HERE. Subscribers will get an exclusive launch discount plus be the first to know about promotions, discounts and new products.
The plan is to send out the newsletter about once a month, so we don’t be bombarding you with a ton of emails.
Do you have an Etsy shop? If so, do you have any tips?
Also, are you more likely to buy note cards or prints? Both?
