It’s been a really long time since I’ve posted here and I’m excited to start updating this blog regularly again. It’s been a crazy year and a half adjusting to life newly returned to the East Coast, during a pandemic with a toddler. I’ll do another post on how that’s been going but first I wanted to share my new side hustle!
I spent the time during the pandemic taking several courses online including a graphic design foundations course and an Adobe CC masterclass. I’ve been interested in pursuing graphic design for years and I’m so proud of myself for investing in me and sticking with the courses. Once I completed the courses, I decided to design printable planning pages (daily planner, weekly, monthly calendars, habit trackers, meal planners, etc) to practice.
I am a person who thrives when organized. I can’t think if the house is messy, I depend on lists, and family calendars to keep my house, and brain, less scrambled. After designing and using the templates, I decided to try launching an Etsy shop called “Goal Getter Printables”!
I’m so proud of myself for sticking with it. I thought the design and launch would take maybe four months tops but it ended up taking me almost a full year to have built enough templates to launch. I’ve learned this year a lot about blocking out the noise and focusing on what you want, going to get it, and not worrying what others might say/think along the way.
Launching the Etsy shop has been great practice utilizing both the design but also the marketing strategies I’ve learned from the courses I’ve been taking. Beyond the design aspect I’ve also built the store’s a brand identity and a social media strategy.
Here are some of my templates below. You can find my etsy shop link here.
I have a 36 Planner PDF Templates Mega Bundle for Moms in a pink minimalist style that is a popular favorite.
I also have some templates in a boho color palette. I’m currently working to build a mega bundle with this color scheme as well.
Now that the shop is up and running, I’m going to start focusing on getting the blog back up as well. If there’s anything in particular you would like for me to post on let me know in the comments below.
