Red Bubble!

  About a month ago, I decided to start a gratitude journal for me and my daughter to write in each night before bed.  We all have stress in our lives and so many things in the world are upsetting. It helps to commit to a time each day to focus on the positive! Plus, I am always eager to hear what stood out as extra good that day to my little one.

Here is the design

  So, I searched the web for a gratitude journal and didn't find anything quite right. So, I thought, "I'm an artist, I'll design one!"  I made a pretty cover and stapled it together with some printer paper and that was nice. But we filled it up fast and it was a bit flimsy. I wanted a 'real' journal.

  Then, I stumbled onto Red Bubble, which does print on demand. There are so many cool products that you can put your art on or find someone else's design to buy and support indie artists. So, I polished up my design and uploaded it so I can order the 'real journal' with my cover design! It comes in hardbound or spiral or it can be on a bunch of other cool things like art prints, greeting cards, mugs, pillows, bags and phone covers.

  I was so happy about all this that I started looking for other images that would look neat on stuff and so far I have uploaded 2 other designs and I'm making more specifically for Red Bubble and probably Society 6 and Spoonflower, too! Fun!
