Treasure Sharing: Joining SkillShare

I’m a nerd. I watch video tutorials on YouTube for fun that teach me how to draw, design, or use various adobe cc programs because it gets me inspired. As John Green has said, “When people call people nerds, mostly what they’re saying is ‘You like stuff,’ which is not a good insult at all.” see full quote1. So if you “like stuff” too, then SkillShare is going to be an amazing resource for you.


Freebie Friday: All That Glitters is Gold

Who else is currently obsessing over gold? I’ve been a silver kind of girl for most of my life, but recently gold has really struck my fancy. This new found love of gold has given me inspiration to make a new mockup pack! (split into 3 mini packs, because Etsy only lets you upload 20MB or smaller files) Since I love this pack so much, I thought that I would share one of the files with you for free! Who doesn’t love free stuff, am I right?


My First Mockup Pack

If you’re reading my blog, you probably are aware that I’m trying to start up a creative business. Designing and lettering give me so much joy that I would love for it to be something I can do as frequently as possible. (I’m not delusional. I know this kind of business takes a long time to work up into a full time job – but everyone has to start somewhere.) I have two aspects to my business: digital and physical. The physical side includes things like custom art pieces, prints, envelope/card design, etc. The digital side includes things like resume/cover letter design, web and graphic/logo work, and mockups and other Photoshop resources. I have a pretty good background in Photoshop, so it only makes sense to make it a little easier on designers that don’t.
