Start With Something That You Like


Amidst the unpleasantness of life you have control over how you start your day. You set the tone by choosing to focus on the positive at the beginning of your day. No one or no thing can take this control away from you. Start your day with something that you like, a thought, a plan, a choice, an action. Determine to have a good day. It's as simple as that.

Set your course each day for positivity and success! It really is up to you!

Living A Creative Life Is Easy!

You know that I like to share how easy it is to live creatively. I try to add some creativity to every facet of my life. One way that I do this is by designing and creating as much as I can of what I want and need.

I shared this post: You Are Creative! In it, I encouraged you to believe in yourself and be careful to whom you share your work with. Trying to convince others to accept and value your work is the same as casting your pearls before swine. There are those who cannot appreciate your work and they will trample it in spirit and in words.

Start creating now! No more procrastinating! Don't fail yourself anymore. Take authority over fear!

Sarah at Red Rocking Bird shares a couple of quick and easy techniques in her video, BOOST CREATIVITY - A Creative Life is a Happy Life , to get your general, creative juices flowing. She shows you how to create simple marks with any materials on any type of paper. These easy marks can then be used to design patterns that can be used in a variety of creative projects.

Designing Digital Birds For Self-Esteem Quotes

I’ve been wanting to design some stylized, whimsical birds for months. I have been watching the quote graphics that others have been designing featuring their stylized, whimsical birds. I have a Pinterest board full of inspiration. Last week I tried it. My first design was the blue bird at the top left. I really like how she turned out. Below is my computer workspace when I was working on her.


I am a self-taught graphic designer and I use Serif software. It rivals Photoshop but is much more affordable since there is no subscription. The suite includes Affinity Publisher, Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer. I included a link in case you are interested and I am not an affiliate. The programs are sold individually for under $50 and Serif often runs sales at 40% off. I started with Affinity Photo and I’ve never paid full price. I have been using the programs for years and absolutely love them!


I used my first bird to design this positive affirmation, healing art quote design. It is available on POD (print-on-demand) products at my Redbubble, faith-based shop, Draw Nigh To Hope. Here are some of the products.


 






 
 
Available On 81 Products 
 All about high self esteem, learning to love self because if we don't, who will?
This uplifting statement will encourage anyone, whether they think that they need it or not.

I will be designing other uplifting, high self-esteem quote graphics featuring the other birds. I’m so happy that I’ve been able to do this. If you’ve been wanting to try something new, don’t wait any longer. Get up in the morning and say today I will do it! Push past procrastination and fear and make yourself do what you know you can do!

Get A Free Shop At Payhip!

Many undesirable changes have taken place at POD sites like Redbubble, Society6 and TeePublic. Sellers have been leaving these venues, looking for others avenues through which to sell their designs. One thing that I also do is sell printables/digitals of my POD designs at my own, free shop. I use Payhip

Payhip is not a marketplace but it is a GREAT site to host your own shop. I am not an affiliate trying to make money. I'm just sharing because I know all of the great benefits that Payhip offers. You can sell digitals, courses, subscriptions, memberships, coaching, and they recently introduced physical product selling

Payhip is owned by 2 brothers in the UK and the company is profitable. It won't be folding like so many other sites that have disappeared over the years. At Payhip, you are on your own with marketing but they offer powerful marketing tools. There is no community except for a FB group that is not very active. I do miss being able to connect with other sellers in an official way. Other than that, I love my shop!

Payhip is a great opportunity for anyone who is willing to do their own marketing. They have great marketing tools and a robust shop builder. They offer shop themes but you have total control over the design. You don't have to build a shop if that challenges you. You can sell through individual links to your blog, website, etc. 

They don't yet have integration with POD sites so that you can sell there through Printify, Printful, etc., like sellers do at Etsy. I don't know if they are planning to add that feature. Here are the available Payhip integrations

Payhip payment processors are Paypal and Stripe so sellers get paid instantly. The free subscription plan, with a 5% transaction fee, offers the same features, including unlimited listings, as the 2 paid plans. Isn't that wonderful! We don't see that at other selling venues.

Good luck to everyone who are making big moves because of unfavorable changes at these POD sites. You can see Printaphoria, my Payhip shop, here.

society6 changes, is society6 worth it, redbubble account tiers, teepublic account categories, is print on demand worth it, is print on demand dead, alternatives to print on demand

Society6 Introduces Mandatory Subscriptions

Well, I got my notice today to choose a subscription plan. I chose free and have reduced my 41 designs to 10. I had recently reopened my shop and was building it up again. I am going to focus on 10 Christmas designs. 
 
After the holidays, I'll decide how to proceed with my account. Changing out the 10 for seasonal/holidays throughout the year will not work because marketing traction will be lost each time. The only other option I can think of is to choose a gallery of 10 of my evergreen, coordinated designs and keep those up. I would focus on marketing them in various formats and advertising graphics that I haven't taken time to use before. 
 
I have a fruit drawing for which I've been thinking about making a surface design collection. I could then also focus on designing for the S6 individual products, which I haven't been taking the time to do. This is the time to stop procrastinating and do that if I want to keep my acct after the New Year. Because of the name of my shop and the address, I may close it and open a new shop with a name that would better represent my new surface design collection.
 
So much for recently coming back to S6 but I'm not mad at them, RedBubble, TeePublic, or any of the other venues that have made these types of changes. Everyone is struggling and we all have to do what we have to do to make it. What they have had to do doesn't have to stop me. It can inspire and invigorate me, if I allow it to. 
 
I am glad that Society6 has included the free, 10-design subscription. If they had not, I probably wouldn't be thinking about developing my fruit design collection. Creating a surface design collection like this is where I need to increase my skills. Now, I've been motivated.
