makes me happy

Within the last couple weeks I ran out of both mailers and my purchase packs (pre-stuffed clear envelopes I put in with every order). So this weekend when I wasn’t getting my Halloween on, I was working on restocking.

It makes me so happy to see this box above. It’s a box of bubble mailers I bought long ago, but instead of buying more when I ran out, I just fill it with my own handmade mailers. Each one as beautiful and original as the next. I have to admit that I would rather receive something in one of these than any old manila envelope any day. Here is the tutorial that inspired it all.

I also created a new style of promo magnets. I’m working on the “coloring book” scribbler that I was inspired to create a couple weeks ago. And lastly, in the coming week I hope to create some more new scratch pads, this time I’m thinking matchbook style. All of these go in the purchase packs that have already been partially assembled.

The business side of selling my handmade items is more appealing when I put my personal touch on all elements through the process.
