It occurred to me the other day that although I have been banging on about my foray into greetings cards on social media I haven’t talked about it on here; and soon as many people just follow this blog via email or visiting direct I thought I would give a quick into into my new venture how it all came about.
A couple of months ago I wrote a post about how me and J got together, the last image I drew was of us sitting on the sofa. As it seemed to resonate with a lot of people J said ‘Hey you could make pictures like that into cards!’
So I did! And Gin Bunny Prints was born.
I got to work creating a small range of cards, mostly self indulgent stuff featuring gin, bunnies and the like (hence the name) and launched about two weeks ago.
I’ve been absolutely blown away by the support so far and although I’ve had much less sleep than usual and hardly any free time I’m surviving on the passion that comes from doing something you love! Plus a lot of support from my very wonderful family (and of course prosecco)…
The bag on the bottom left are orders from the weekend alone… zzzzzzzzzzzz
Lots of lovely instagrams from happy customers :) Although I am starting to slightly rue the day I decided to tie each order in pretty string and hand-make the gift tags!
Anyway that’s about it for now, I am hoping to keep the designs coming and maybe even branch out into offering bigger prints too. I started out thinking this was very much a hobby, although if it ever could become something a little bit more then that would be lovely too.
Thank you :) x
