So lately I have wanted to make things look more like stuff you might buy at a stall or in a store.. So I have made some hand drawn packaging.. Why hand drawn? Because by doing them by hand they are all unique and I can make them to any size at any point.. and although it may take a little longer at the moment there isn’t that much to package that can’t be done while watching tv, reading course materials or when I need a break from whatever else I am doing.. I have pre-cut a lot of the pieces for the krakens and mid sized bags and only have the larger ones to do up. And also my printer is kind of out of ink at the moment.. this is also the cheaper option.. Huzzah for being a full time student.. *watches cobwebs fly out of her wallet*
I also recently came into the possession of a lot of pens and some other pieces as well which I have grouped in with the packaging.. hopefully they will hit the spot with some people.. I have plans to make up smaller notebooks with just one pen for people who just want somewhere to write down notes on the run.. perhaps a pack of 3 with a pen.. hmmm. Oh the ideas!
I have bundled some of these supplies into bags to offer with the books I am making which I have now split into 4 to make more room within them for other pages, more blank pages for a more personal use by the person who purchases them.. I might give one away or maybe two.. I will see though.. 🙂
I was also lucky enough to have some storage cubes brought home as well which have nicely organised my desk a bit more than what it had been.. I AM finding it better to have everything set up though it covers more and more of my cork boards every time… might be time to find a new spot for those or get them screwed to the wall..
And lastly.. I have begun working on some of the ideas I have had written down over the years.. This one is for The Scarf Collector.. which is a little darker than you would assume from the sketches but I guess for me cute/evil go hand in hand at times.. And I would also like to thank novembermoonfor putting 2 images into her flickr mosaic as it has sent me new traffic 🙂
Toodles! Also if you are interested in one of the items seen here let me know or it will go into the store soon.. Kraken jars will also be increasing in price according to my new pricing scheme, there is one left at the lower price but all newer ones will be priced higher and when they are in the store the last one will be put up to the new price.
