Happy April everyone!
I am pleased to announce the offical launch of my 2nd book, the MYTHOLOGICAL MINIS COLOURING BOOK! 24 pages of colouring fun starring my characters, Cinder the Phoenix, Aspen the Dragon, Skye the Griffon and Raine the Unicorn!
With this launch I am holding a giveaway of Minis goodies on my FACEBOOK and INSTAGRAM! Please click the links for more info and how to enter!
Because of course I did. Yet another site revamp, but this one is for more business reasons. I needed to make my online presence more cohesive, make it easier to find my store, etc. A big part of that was to make the site actually part of the company. So Shilo.ca got an overhaul to CindersDesigns.ca or CindersDesigns.com (take your pick). Keep in mind, all domains will always work. I’m not letting go of Shilo.ca. The page just has been re-branded. I might make Shilo.ca a “personal site” again down the road, but don’t count on it anytime soon. …honestly don’t know what I’d separate out haha. ^_^;
As for the website itself, Facebook eternally annoys me, so I’ve put the sites front page back to a standard blog system instead of a facebook feed. After awhile I found it kind of… silly to have the site showing all of the little things I post to social media. If you want to see that sort of thing, you’ll generally be already on said social media! 😛 The sites blog will be reserved for more important updates. Sure it won’t be updated nearly as much, but I’ve decided that’s ok. I want to keep the website more organized. The site isn’t completely done… the back end of the blog and the projects pages all need updating, but it’s mostly there. (For those coming to this post via FB, just click on “Home” at the site to see what’s changed)
April is gearing up to be a busy one, more updates soon!
I’m going to try and resume my M-W-F posting schedule on social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) as of Wednesday, April 4th. That should give me time to get a backlog going for them. Already planning for my next cons, and for the summer. I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and planning since returning from Vancouver. I’ve almost figured out where I plan to take my business. I’m learning what works, what doesn’t, and where my strengths and weaknesses are. There’s things I’ve decided to let go of and stop doing business wise, as they were only causing me unneeded stress and anxiety, and there’s things I’m eager to jump into as I feel they more suit what I want my business and art to be known for. For the first time in awhile, I’m actually eager to start my next projects. I just bought a new printer, a Canon Pixma Pro-100, which I am excited to get, as it’s a key in what I want to make, and you’ll see more of that once I get things rolling. For the moment though, I’m finishing up commission I owe, and then I plan to use the Easter long weekend to rest and recharge. March has sucked, and I’m looking forward to it being over.
