Today I made a test: I printed 5 sets of 3 different bird cards on a cream 100% recycled paper. I think they look great! Unfortunately it's already 8 PM so the picture is a quite bad one, I promise to take better ones soon so I can show you the cards properly!
Now, I need your opinion, anyone who never commented on this blog: now is the moment to do it and tell me what you would like to see in my Etsy shop!! I need you 49 followers and everybody else who reads this blog "secretly" (haha...) to write!
YES, this is a shop opening announcement, it won't happen tomorrow but pretty soon(...I hope!!)
So, feel free to tell me anything you would want to see in the shop: prints, cards, notebooks, teatowels, cushions... anything! I don't know exactly yet if everything will be possible but I will try to do my very best! (If anyone knows a good textile printer...!!!) I would also love to hear from you which patterns/designs of mines you like best... which styles/colours...?
So, use your keyboards, I'm waiting for your answers! :)
Have a lovely afternoon/evening!

Hi Lara, I especially like your floral designs and the sausage dog design. I would like to see you make shopping bags and cushion covers and prints on stretched canvas. I would also like to see the flowers with faces made into little dolls. That should keep you busy for a bit, Kate x

Cards and stationary are enormously popular on Etsy, and you know I love textiles, but I'm especially fond of notebooks/notepads myself, since I don't generally send many cards.

There are also a ton of different types of paper goods: folders, envelopes, boxes, bracelets (yes, they can be made out of paper), pendants, pinback buttons, etc. I could probably keep going, but I'll stop now. : )

My favourites are Edward bird and the sausage dogs, oh and rosebud. I think cushions, tea towels and maybe fabric for people to make their own things with. Cards and notebooks are always good. Have fun. Hannah

I love all the birds- Edward and all his friends. They would be great on fabric made into cushions, skirts, curtains. Love love love

Hi - I love it when people sell downloadable PDFs on Etsy with designs for notecards, tags, calendars, etc. You supply the design and layout, and we supply the paper and printer. I love printing out a bunch of things and giving them to my friends.

I really like your people illustrations - especially the more vintage looking people. I also love the valentine's day design you did with the sweet mailboxes (and the colors on that were so great).

I'm new to the blog - saw you on Print and Pattern. Your designs are really lovely, and I'd love to see you on Etsy.

Lara! I think your art would look great on stationary: notepads, pens and agendas that I'd love to have on my desktop when I become a professional translator :)
Or... have you thought of dinner sets? I think that'd be a lot of fun!

And I don't know if you already made it but please make a keys design! I'd love to see that one :)
