I have been neglecting my blog again. For once though, it's not because of life in general!!!
I have been working hard to get my Print on Demand (PoD) sites up and running. I showed you the fractals I have been working on last time, though there have been many more. I have also been doing some straight graphic design pieces as well as converting over a few of my doodles so far.
Am I finding success with the PoD market?? Yes and no. This takes so much time to promote and update your work.. let alone create it in the first place! I haven't sold a lot but it's building slowly.
It's just a matter of whether you want to get sucked into everything or just focus on a particular market, field of work, etc. Do you want to go for the mainstream market, or be true to your own designs? For me, I want to stay true to me which means creating from my heart. So that's what I'm doing. It may not seem like it makes sense or that I don't have a 'brand'. But I have always been a jack of all trades. You'll see the fractal work, the doodling, some photography and who knows what else.
My main problem right now is to streamline my processes, build a 'stock' so I can continuously publish without gaps like I have now, and NOT get sucked down the tube of going everywhere. Why do I feel like this is a "Keys to the Game" comment.. ah well, it is what it is!
In addition to that, I truly do want to get my jewelry product lines running. I have started getting together my plans for that and hope to launch jewelry again this summer. This summer will also restart my glass art and beads. Something to look forward to seeing I hope!
So there's a status update from Charma Rose Designs! Yay!!
