I've Opened an Etsy Store

Well isn't this an exciting post to be sharing with you today! Yesterday I got so excited and just opened up an Etsy Store! So I suppose I'll start at the beginning. For ages now I've wanted to have some kind of online store as an extra income because, as much as I love my job, I only work part time and need something new to focus on and help towards my Masters Degree and future adventures. You may remember I had a store badge on the side of my profile late 2014 with the dream of opening a store early 2015 but that didn't happen. I had no idea what to sell and was drained of all creativity but I've managed to turn myself around. 

It wasn't until recently, specifically when I felt a wave of inspiration to stop waiting around for stuff to happen and just do it, that I decided to get back in to drawing and writing and I wanted to make stickers for my journal and planner so I was like, yeah, let's do it, let's make cute stickers. So let me formally introduce to you to Badger & Bear:

 
 

I will be selling the cutest stickers, all designed and made by myself, for journals and diaries (or anywhere you want to stick them!) and will hopefully be introducing homemade cards for all occasions in the future as well as a ton more sticker designs. At the minute I have limited stock since this is a beta test really, to figure out prices and see what's popular.

Use code: OPEN2015 to get 25% off your order until May 22nd!

If you miss something and you really want it just get in touch and I'll make sure we can get some in the future. Honestly, my advice is to buy something sooner rather than later for savings because I always underestimate postage. My plan is to update little and often to keep on top of things and I'm genuinely shaking with excitement. (I know this isn't exactly a multi-million business product or plan but it's got me back in to making things so, can't knock it really)

This is a joint venture with me as Illustrator and Social Manager and Matthew as my Calligrapher as well as Head Idea Bouncer. Please browse at your leisure! We appreciate any feedback, constructive criticism and/or purchases.
