I've been having some troubles with my laptop getting overheated lately, so not doing as much as I want as I don't want to force it to work. But this aside! I got some fun news to share with you!! I got featured on a very cool site, named The Indie Chicks. *dances*
You know, every now and then I get an e-mail from someone with a request. I don't respond to all, because sometimes you know from the start that it is spam, but there are a few e-mails that are set up in a way that makes you think "Hmm...is it legit??".
So when I got the lovely note from Chiara, one of the founders of the site, I went like "Oh my goodness, how fun!". I didn't want to get tooooo excited, just in case I would be disappointed again. However, after browsing through the site and reading it here and there, I was even more excited. The Indie Chicks is an online magazine for the bad ass independent women. Now how cool does that sound?! Haha. It is founded by two lovely ladies going by the name Chiara Mazzucco and Renee Claybion. You can read more about their mission by clicking this "an Indie mission"
"Our Indie Chick has a go-getter, do it yourself, hunger for life. She's strong, confident, and charmingly ambitious. Whether she's an indie artist, a celebrity stylist, or a small business owner, she's making her dreams come true. So what makes an Indie Chick?
If you're here, reading.. you're probably it." - The Indie Chicks
I like to think I'm this indeed haha. Seriously though, and for some this is known, but for the new readers: I embarked on a creative adventure. An adventure where I decided to follow my dreams. Dreams that may seem unrealistic for some, especially since I have no degree in Art. But hey, things are only unrealistic if you think they are. You're never done learning and you have got to work hard in order to make them come true. It can be daunting at times so connecting with like-minded people who are also chasing and capturing what they really want in life, makes it a bit easier. You're definitely not alone.
All those elements like being a go-getter, do it yourself, making your dreams come true...this fitted me as a person and as an artist and that's why I decided to give a "yes" to the super kind Chiara. Maybe some people think "Oh I just want to sign up everywhere and that's that"...this is not really for me. With a lot of sites you do get "forgotten" if you don't stay up to date with it. I do like to be connected to sites that appeal to me and fit me and my own message. You really should just browse their site for yourself. They are just starting out, but are already featuring lovely creatives and displaying a bunch of nice, interesting and fun articles to read. Articles aiming towards DIY, beauty, fashion, Tips & Tricks, advice, you name it and they got it and if they don't have a particular subject yet and you think you can provide them with something, just contact them. They are growing by the day an definitely worth to check out. I'm honored to be a part of it.
If you like what you see and want to stay up to date via other social media you can follow them on Facebook and Twitter as well.
As for my own little update...there are a few originals added and I re-listed a few cards/prints in my Etsy store! Do browse around and use the coupon MAGICCUPCAKE as it will give you a 15% discount on your order. Remember once a original is gone, it is gone ^_^. There will be more originals and prints soon.
Enjoy Your Week.
