Another Creativity Update

February 9, 2010

On Saturday, I spent the afternoon drawing some more embroidery designs. Then, on Sunday afternoon, Joey and I tried to figure out the best way to get the designs uploaded to etsy as pdf files. At first, I was going to manipulate them with Fireworks (making the mirror images, cleaning up any erasure marks, etc.). However, we decided that the quickest way to get the designs into pdf is to just create clean copies manually with my light box and scan them as pdf files.

Also, due to our weird and bizarre financial situation thanks to Joey’s unfair job loss, I’m seriously contemplating my etsy store’s potential for generating some income. I’m really wondering if I put in as much time each day on my etsy store as I would for a part-time job outside the home, I could make any money off of it. I had always thought of my etsy store as an outlet for my creativity, but not so much as an income-generator.
