|Really. I'm working on the comic!!|
However, my weeks and weeks before of depression and surfing the intarwebz combined with the prolonged outlining and coloring last night has cause my hand to be unable to grasp a pencil.
But I wasn't going to let that get me down!
I happen to have a lot of really nice jewelry beads and supplies, and frankly I'm not going to be wearing ALL of it, so I thought it'd be awesome to make some easy pieces and sell them in a "I'm clearing out my jewelry stash sale!" on Etsy!
So I put together a couple sets of earrings before realizing I needed a couple more findings and to find my proper pliers, so I'll be poking at that later tonight too.
But anyway, I digress. What I really want to talk about is how I'm secretly a Packaging Engineer. Truthfully, had I known this was a viable major/job, I would probably have done it. I love creating packaging, boxes, display cards, and the like. Then I got the "Cuts A Lot 2" program that let's me use illustrator designs to cut with a Cricut machine (this is how I make my pokemon badge inserts).
So just spending about 20 minutes with illustrator and my Cricut, I came up with these:
|A little tweaking and all the printing would be centered.|
For a quick 20 minute job, they turned out pretty good. With a little extra time, I could come up with a useable template for all sorts of sizes of things. And then I got to thinking...
Would anybody want me to make these for them? (With payment, of course). I'd get them printed at like FedEx so they won't bleed, but I could make all sorts of sizes. I have way too much fun making these things and I'd LOVE to help out others.
Let me know your thoughts!
