(A little snap shot of my desk while preparing some prints to be posted)
My shop at Epla doesn't have a feedback system, so I decided to send out a small survey to my first 50 customers to make sure they were all happy with their prints. I was very excited to only get positive feedback, and at the same time got some input for potential new products for my shop. As a thanks for completing my survey, one lucky lady won a print of her choice. She chose the Toothbrush print, and here it is, almost ready to start it's journey over to Norway.
I usually keep the A4 size of the prints I send, as this is more flexible when it comes to choosing a frame or way to display the print in your home. Each print is signed, and has also got a label on the back with the title of the print, date created and signature. It is then posted in a cello sleeve in a hardback envelope.
Sorry about the terrible mobile phone photo. I am in the process of buying a new camera, and hopefully that should mean more and better photos for the blog!

I've also been doing lots and lots of thinking about the way forward for my business. I've been thinking big, and thinking hard, and hopefully I'll have some exciting stuff to show here quite soon. In the meantime though, I will make sure to pop up here more often.
The photo above is from something else that has been taking up quite a bit of my time lately - my man and I are getting married in September, and this week we had a pre-wedding photo shoot with our awesome photographer. In the hunt for the perfect location we got completely stuck in the mud, and I literally had to get down and dig to get Rich's shoe back. It was pretty funny! I do think the mud adds a little something extra to the photos though, wouldn't you agree? :)
I'm busy designing our invitations right now, and will show them here a bit closer to the day when all the guests have received theirs. I do love designing stationary, but for some reason it's so much harder to choose what direction to take when designing for myself!

Those great folks over at Epla continue to be oh so good to me. It was a great surprise when they contacted me to ask if they could use my Captain for a header for Barnas Epla (Epla for kids). I said yes of course!
Today my pictures popped up as today's featured products on their Facebook fanpage.
On a slightly less egocentric note, I was quite intrigued to see how Epla would look without the wintery theme, and I love the way they have kept the design very similar but swapped the snowflakes for some subtle brush strokes. They have really managed to create a great site, and it's a joy to use! It is so inspiring with people who have a good idea and really go for it and make stuff happen.
