Oops! Didn't mean to be gone for so long... last week was very busy.
I've been illustrating two books, as well as getting stock ready for Kamersvol Geskenke. I wasn't sure how I'd get through this month, so in desperation I drew up a timetable, splitting my days into drawing time and crafting time. (I didn't budget enough time for daily blog reading, there's serious catching up to do....) So far it's worked incredibly well: while I'm drawing I'm concentrating on that, and when I put the books aside I'm focused on printing or sewing. I've given myself time for errands, and - sheer luxury! - a lunch hour, when I also take the dog for a walk. In the last three weeks I've done more work than I thought possible; it seems study timetables aren't just for exams.
Packaging for Kamersvol was a daunting task; every single item had to be tagged and priced. Luckily, I had a bit of a revelation about packaging and labeling after reading this post by The Wren.
My name, contact details, product information, the price code, and the price have to be on each thing, because I won't be there to talk to customers. For someone who equates packaging with advertising, and has (I think) a healthy distrust of both, I had a surprising amount of fun!
