It’s been so long since I got a trickle of my creative juice going. It’s not in full force but glad it’s coming back. I guess, having my daughter here for several months for her long summer break gave me the impetus to grab a pen and paper and start doodling, drawing, delve on hand lettering and typography.

I knew my craftiness will lead me to other stuff I can do to while away my time and also to explore possibilities of opening my creative studio one day, with the help of my daughter who is into Multimedia Arts and my younger brother who is keen to sharpen his skills in Photoshop. The three of us will be at the helm of my e-commerce business.

My passion for arts will pave way to our creative studio. I am already aiming to open a mini-shop for my printed crafts in Etsy this year until I sort out the logistics of shipping, the costs, the items to sell that I can actually make, and the time that I will have to put in during after work to fulfil this dream. They are not much but they are CUTE! After that, I hope to be able to create graphics to sell and I am really spending time on this one because I have to hone my skills in drawing, sketching and doodling. All the 3 elements I have mentioned will be vital part of making the products I will sell eventually.

My dreams are not lofty but they are driven by passion and the ready skills’ set that my daughter and I already have. We just have to practice more, attend seminars and workshops, and even attend gatherings and exhibitions in the future to network and get ideas.

I am excited on this creativity business. I hope it will help bring extra income and create jobs for others. And maybe soon, I will become my own boss. AMEN to that!
