NEW STUFF! I am writing this blog today to tell you about some new/recent stuff!
New Baby: Magnus joined our family at the end of September! He’s a beautiful baby boy and is keeping us busy!
New Instagram: I’m on Instagram! Maybe you already know and maybe you don’t – but a few weeks ago I created an Instagram account for my creative work. You can follow me there @patrickguindonart.
New business cards: I am SO EXCITED about these! They’re sort of like trading cards – I have five different designs for the fronts, and the backs are all the same. They are thick and beautiful. I’ll be including these with purchases and giving them away at events, shows, and to people who love art and need to get in touch with me.
New stickers: So, very soon I am going to start printing prints and selling them in my currently-empty Easy shop (hey, I’ve got a new baby, give me a month!) I got some new stickers, also from Moo, to stick on the prints before I ship them. THEY ARE SO AWESOME, but my 2 year old son did not think they were awesome. He said, “NO, DADDY! NO!” and shoved them away. I guess in his world, stickers are supposed to feature rabbits and squirrels, and NOT his dad.
New hope: I’m feeling blissfully hopeful these days. Maybe it’s the early mornings (also
new), maybe it’s the amount of creating that I am squeezing into my jam-packed days, or maybe it is because I have finally accepted myself wholly as a Creator. As a Maker. Whatever the reason, I’m feeling hopeful and joyful and productive and a good-tired that means I’m filling my day with love and purpose and passion. And I want you to be part of that journey!
