off and on over the past many months, i noticed a huge feeling of resistance to the idea of selling prints. it just didn't feel like me, and i kept wanting to remove prints from my etsy shop altogether.
this seemed rather puzzling. i thought i wanted to offer prints, but clearly something about it felt wrong.
one day, i realized the problem. i'm not offering prints in a way that is fun for me. it feels rather like i have turned my prints into a widget and i am the assembly line. of course that's not exactly what is happening, but somehow it's missing the same light and playful spirit that is present with my cards and postcards.
my resulting epiphany: it's not enough to love the thing i'm offering. i have to love the process of offering it as well.
i want to bring that light and playful spirit back. i want my print offering to be full of surprise and delight and joyful anticipation. for me and for you.
so, here's what's going to happen.
at the end of august, all of the prints currently in the shop will disappear.
at the beginning of each month - starting in september - i'll add a set of prints to the shop. my sense is that it will be between one and five. there may be a theme. (oh, who am i kidding; of course there will be a theme!) the sizes and prices will depend entirely on the prints.
at the beginning of the next month, those prints will disappear, and a new set will take their place. it's entirely possible that a particular image may show up again someday; then again, it may not.
it's a wandering collection of prints!
oh, the fun. i am so excited to play with this, and i hope you enjoy it too.
