Hello friends! I’ve been busy over at my personal blog – reflecting on life, compiling some images and quotes, and building a little brand for myself.

I also have both Oh, Young Designer and KathrynFarritor.com on bloglovin! Click the bloglovin link above to follow if you like that type of feed!

I am starting a series over there called, “The Inspired Series” in which I will be interviewing awesomely creative Etsy businesses and learning more about their inspirations, business lessons, and personal lives. Stay tuned!

Etsy Shop: “Treasury-ed”

Hello friends! I have exciting news! My business card design has been put into a “Treasury” via Etsy’s curators. It sits in the “Textured Treasury.” I think it’s pretty fun that Etsy handpicks certain items and collects them into similar groups. I’m hoping it will get my name out there a little bit.

So far, my experience with opening a store on Etsy has been super interesting and far from what I had expected. I have received a lot of custom orders – people requesting changes or updates or personalization to designs I already have out there. I expected to just see a couple of purchases and downloads once in a while but I have actually communicated with quite a few different people, all with different ideas in mind. Etsy is a great way for any freelancer to get their name out there and although there is a lot of competition to the custom designs game, I have still received quite a few purchases and custom orders.
