It worked out great for a while, but this 3' x 5' space became way too cramped when I started spending more and more time in there working on Sarah & Abraham.
So we converted what used to be a playroom into an office with workspace for me, workspace for my husband, who also does a lot of work from home, and a crafting area for the kids. I love how it turned out!

I've had something like this in mind for a long time (to illustrate Bible story scenes using paper cutouts), but had never seen anything like this before. So this has given me new inspiration. A while ago I found these QuicKutz shapes that I could probably use for a few different stories:I'd like to use a die cutting system if possible so I don't have to charge as much (the woman behind Wee San Francisco cuts every shape by hand and charges $100 - 200 for the artwork above). So I need to find out if there's any problem with selling products made with QuicKutz, but right now their website is down for maintenance.
In the meantime, please leave a comment and let me know what you think of this idea. Thanks!

In the early days I spent almost every day creating new designs, and scrapping most of them. But lately I've been so consumed with administrative stuff and logistics (incorporating, insurance, accounting, website domain, Etsy shop, marketing, etc.) that I've completely stopped creating new designs. Now that the operational stuff seems to be mostly in place and running smoothly, I'd really like to get back to creating some new designs.
