September has somehow managed to fly by and it’s suddenly the beginning of October… crazy!!
So this month has been pretty exciting, at the beginning of the month I left my full time job, we then had a lovely relaxing holiday in Tenby (where there was sunshine every single day!) and then I’ve spent the remainder of the month setting up my own freelance design business.
So far, I think I’m definitely still in the ‘sorting out and setting up’ stage, but I’m gradually settling into more of a routine and doing more designing than admin each day. I’m definitely a morning person, so mornings each day are blocked out for designing, and then each afternoon is assigned a different task to do, such as finding new work, sorting out accounts/money, blogging, working on my Etsy shop (more on that below), and other general admin.
Lots of my designing time so far has been spent working on products for my Etsy store… which will hopefully be launching in about 2 weeks! (Watch this space!) I’ve been working on Christmas cards, wedding invites, bunting, and lots more pretty stuff, and I can’t wait to launch it all soon. Follow me on Instagram to get all the latest updates and sneak peaks!
I’m also looking for other projects to work on and would particularly love to work on anything book or print related. If that sounds like you, please get in touch to discuss working together.
P.S. I’m on the lookout for a pretty and practical planner/diary to help me organise my life… anyone seen any/got one/got any recommendations?
