I'm working on a lot of new, different things to put up on Etsy (and, not to jinx it or anything, but elsewhere if Tuesday goes well.) I think I definitely like making packaging more than products themselves, though! I've had the luxury of experimenting with a lot of different ways to ship out my products, and the latest is my very own customized jewelry boxes.
|P.S. Anyone who sells handmade goods or whatever and is interested in lasercut packaging, please get in touch! I'd love to work with you.|
In light of this & my pretty decent collection of stamps waiting to be sent all over, I've decided WHY NOT SEND STUFF TO INTERNET FRIENDS?????
A lot of my current IRL friendships originated online, honestly - it's a cool place to get in touch with people with similar interests! But there are a lot of variations of it: roommates and other friends I see on a weekly basis, friends I contact via Twitter frequently or text, friends who I met that one time when we happened to be in the same city, like-minded darlings who read this blog but don't actually talk to me or comment that much, etc. 4evs. The point is, I like you all and wish to be a mulch-millionaire who could visit you all! Since I can't, though, how about I send you some mail?
If you wanna be included, e-mail me at ventriclestory at gmail.com with your address! There are a lot of things you might possibly get, including a nice note, blank stationary I made myself, prints of work by both myself and friends that are extras hangin' out after they were included with old zines I distributed, and maybe even originals. WHO KNOWS?
Please don't be hesitant to shoot me an email if you don't think we know each other that well - the point of all of this is to get to know people better! I'm happy to send things internationally, too, so that shouldn't scare you off!
P.S. I know I definitely owe a few people mail...mostly people I had great ambitions of making something original for & haven't quite gotten it right yet (lookin' at you, Zoe) and people who I should have sent something to long ago but might not even have the right address for anymore? (*cough* Liz *cough*) You guys are already on the list, but if you think I don't have a current address for you, please get in touch!
