New items in my Etsy store Mothermaple


Mothermaple on Etsy

I'm really enjoying running my Etsy store Mothermaple. It was a project that I started last year after wanting to start my own business but having a few false starts in what to sell. I'm a very creative person and everyone tells me I should be selling the things that I make but I have found its either too labour intensive or they are items that just don't seem to sell. 

I have had the idea to start selling stationary and stickers for a while but the start up cost and time was too much for me. During Covid I was at home all day anyway and because I was able to pay off my debt I had enough cash for the start up. I got a Silhouette Curio, some sticker paper and an ipad that I use with Procreate. It was a long learning curve and I wasted alot of paper but after a week or two I got the hang of the process.

I can't tell you how much I have enjoyed this new venture. Its certainly where I was meant to be! Every time I get a sale it brings me a little jump for joy and excitement that I may one day be able to do this full time. The items I design and stock in my store are changing and evolving as I progress and I have found that I am gravitating towards really calm, relaxing aesthetic. Lots of neutrals and florals. Simple lines and sketches. I have just branched out to my first range of B6 size pocket notebooks which I had the most fun learning how to hand bind. I'm hoping that next I can increase the range to full A6 hand bound art pads. I try and load at least one new design a week and its often more. I just cant stop designing!

Journaling with stickers

My latest lines are for 2021 calendars. I have made a range of stickers which feature each month and can be stuck on the top or bottom of any notepad, journal or calendar as a nice clean feature to keep track of which dates and days events fall on. I have just started journaling this year and am so inspired by other bloggers and Etsy sellers. Hopefully later this year I can start my own Youtube channel and show you all what im working on.
