So here we go let's get this Blog started... Here I am going to focus on the goings on, the behind the scenes of White January and what has been happening on a weekly basis both on and offline.
This being the 1st post I am shouting from the roof tops that my online shop is OPEN... I am so happy as I have done it all myself with the help of "Zero to Shopify" by Kim Lawler...
Even though I am a bit of a Tech Geek, coding and all that malarky has never been my bag and so was going to source it all out to begin with but this "Stay Home to Keep Safe" life we find ourselves in at the moment it gave me the nudge to sort it all out myself. Have to give Kim a huge thanks for the wonderfully put together course. She reduced the cost at this very surreal time and the whole course is like she is holding your hand every step of the way... The aim of the course is to get it done in 2 weeks and I did.
So besides developing this little website, I have been doing a couple of commission pieces and then designing some new products, one of which is for the Random Acts of Kindness Online Market with Pedddle.com on 19th April (4pm-Midnight).
So the idea of the market is for Makers & Artists of the Pedddle community to submit a gift item which includes postage, gift wrapping and a personalised note. Select a gift that you want to send to a loved one, family or friend, someone who works on the frontline (and is a real life Superhero) or a little treat for yourself. In these weird and trying times we need to tell people we care, we are thinking about them and they are not alone.
OK well there you have it... 1st post under my belt. See you back here next week with another weekly update.
Stay Safe and Take Care,
