So please please please help me spread the word!

Etsy Banners/Etsy Shop Makeovers

I am super excited to get started on my Etsy Banners! If you use Etsy you know exactly what I'm talking about. These banners and sale avatars are crucial if you have a shop on Etsy. I have a lot of really fun ideas and now that the computer is fixed I will have my bum glued to the office chair for the rest of the week. I really want to make some simple, fun and clean designs at an affordable price for those just starting out, or need a new look!

I just got some new graphics this morning too so this is gonna be fun!

As always, be sure to check out my website as well as my Etsy shop:

Here is a sample:

Love your job

I know I do! Last night all I could think about was what I had to work on, and I was excited about it! I love the fact that I can stay at home with my girls and still be able to work. It really is important to love what you do. I know I have been so happy lately and I think it has a lot to do with being happy with my job.

I am a total geek and a photoshop nerd. I just love the heck out of all of the possibilities in photoshop.

Today I am adding items to Ecrater and hopefully the hubby will be home so fix the other computer. I have these new templates I am itching to customize! I am ready to get going on this whole adventure!

Special note to my loyal followers: if you know anyone expecting or know anyone having a birthday soon, send them my way. I will take great care of them!

I'm a green girl

Thanks to I came across this article and wanted to share it with everyone. I recently watched Food Inc. and it really opened my eyes to what we are really eating. This article is called 66 things you can grow at home. If you can't do this then start shopping at a farmers market or make sure all of the fruit you buy is local. Anywho, here's the link:



So my templates finally arrived today! I am excited to get them personalized so I can get them on the website for everyone to see. Our main computer is still down but I can try editing them on aviary so I can at least see what most of them look like.

I got my first follower, thanks Katie!

I hope to get the word out about SRDS and hopefully everyone can see my designs as well as the pre-made templates. They are all beautiful!

That is all for now. I have a lot to take care of today so this will be a short one.

Good things to come:)

I filled out forms for my business license today and it really makes all of this seem so much more real. When I worked in Washington I just used etsy or ebay so I never really had to do that but it makes everything feel so...official! I can't wait to get this ball rolling!

There are still a few things to take care of on the website but not a lot. I have to re-do each of the design listings to include some more details but other than that things look great. I can't wait to get started. This is what I absolutely love to do and I am so lucky to be doing what I love.

I also ordered business cards and got some GORGEOUS tissue paper this past weekend. I like to add a little bit of fun to all of the packages I send out so some fun tissue paper always makes things a little bit more exciting. EEK! (that's just me being super excited:)

I am still waiting for my new templates to get here. Of course, I can't really do anything to them until the hubby fixes the computer. I swear if it's not one thing it's another! Either way, I am ready to get things going.

I think that is it for now. I will keep this thing updated in the days leading up to my grand opening. Keep updated for even more coupons and fun surprises!

Grand Opening is coming soon!

Hello to all of you following my blog! I am so excited to introduce my design studio to all of you. I like a lot of you out there am feeling the effects of the not so good economy. When my first daughter was born I was devestated because I wanted so badly to send out some really beautiful announcements. I really wanted a beautiful design that wasn't crazy expensive, but no such luck.

This is why I opened srds. I wanted to offer gorgeous designs at an affordable price. Now I am weeks away from the grand opening and I couldn't be happier! I have been doing graphic design for 4 years now and I am so ready to get things up and running. I have many new designs along with lots of other fun surprises. Be sure to check me out on facebook as well as my website and etsy shop!!/profile.php?id=100000944162203

Hope to see all of you soon!
