Hi everyone. Today marks the 6 month birthday of Dreaming on a Star! I’d like to take this opportunity to see what I have achieved in those 6 months. I’d also like to reveal some news about Dreaming on a Star!
♡ Dreaming on a Star founded on August 27th 2012 (Website, Facebook and Twitter set up).
♡ Designs professionally printed on homewares, kitchen-wares and greetings cards.
♡ Interest from established giftware shop to stock Dreaming on a Star products.
♡ Number of sales made of products.
♡ Website has had over 4600 visitors (over 3500 unique visitors) and almost 10,000 page views.
♡ Facebook page has 282 likes and Twitter has 282 likes. SNAP!
♡ Asked by Tigerprint to blog for their Youblog venture.
♡ NEWS: Asked by Decorque to guest blog for them. (Have a look here!)
♡ My work has been featured on several blogs and websites including Business Boom Collective, Card & Gift Blog and Artsy Fartsy Courier.
♡ NEWS: Dreaming on a Star was approached by a UK independent film to feature some of my products (apron, ovenglove, bags and Christmas cards) in their film (More news to follow).
♡ Finished Module 3 of the Art & Business of Surface Pattern Design.
♡ Part of an outstanding online group of Surface Pattern Designers.
♡ Started a Start Your Own Business course and hope to grow Dreaming on a Star as a brand.
So this is what I’ve achieved in my first 6 months. I have lots of plans for the next 6 months, namely to print my designs on fabric and look into manufacturing home and kitchenwares myself. At the moment, I am working on small gift items that I hope to stock in my shop soon. I also want to get my work featured on more blogs. And my main priority is to get representation, freelance work and to secure licensing deals.
So I have a lot to work on and I will be busy in the next 6 months! I hope you join me in 6 months time to see what I’ve achieved! ♡
