The Etsy shop is officially open!
I added a couple digital items — from the “Go & See” series — to get started. And I’m hoping to start offering physical versions as well, very soon!
In the meantime, I’m excited to unveil my latest series, “Meritless Badges”! I’ve been reading A Woman’s Guide to the Wild: Your Complete Outdoor Handbook by Ruby McConnell. It’s been super informational and inspiring! I can’t wait to get started with the summer camping season!
For whatever reason, I thought it would be fun to make scouting “patches” for adults! Not really patches (they’re stickers!), and not really for scouts…and not really for anything of merit. Mostly in jest as the the grown-up equivalents of all the outdoorsy, social or educational badges we all tried miserably to earn as children.
It’s since expanded into other mundane or trivial “bragging rights” that come with being an adult. Like, “Ice Cream for Dinner,” no longer a childish dream, but a reality — often when I’ve put off going to the grocery store for too long. And while I take politics fairly seriously, in general, felt the traditional “I voted” sticker wasn’t honest enough for the local election ballot.
Right now, “Float Trip” is the only one available in the Etsy store, but the others will be added soon too. And I definitely have plans to make many more!
(I feel like, if anything, I should make a “Resolution Complete: Finally Opening an Etsy Shop” badge for myself! Yay!)
