Not About the Baby

So here's a post that's not about Simon...

What? I have something to type about that's not about my baby? Yeah, crazy, huh?

I'll just get right down to it: I'm starting a design business. It will mostly be card-type things such as birth announcements, invitations, Christmas cards, thank you cards, and pretty much anything else I can think of or someone would commission me to do (I wouldn't be opposed to doing posters or t-shirts). I've been in contact with a local printing company to get an idea about pricing and such and it's looking like this can actually be made into a reality!

Once I do a little more research and decide what kind of paper to use and such, I'm going to set up a simple web site and an Etsy store. In the meantime, I've started working on sample templates... ok, really I've just made one mediocre design, but hey, it's a start!

I'm planning on selling "print-your-own" files (if that be your fancy) as well as the actual cards (both single sided and folded).

So there you have it! I'll be sure to post a link once I get things up and running. Remember me when you're looking for wedding and baby shower invitations... and next fall when you're getting Christmas cards! Now have some babies so I can do your birth announcements!

I'm behind you! (And across the living room for you, as it were.)

Awesome, Alisha! You will be so good at this. You can design our Christmas cards next year. We never even got ours in the mail this year...

I've thought about opening an Etsy shop. Can't wait to see what you create.
