Since today marks the first day of the official working day for most of Indonesian people, I think I will start the month of July with the intention of writing a lot of posts here.
Last Ramadhan is a busy month for Kawung Living, we racked up a lot of orders due to the promotion here and there (terpujilah mba-mba LINE Shopping & Dekoruma). The new product addition of Eid Hampers made more purchases than we thought it would be (which made my thoughts fly off to Christmas Hampers earlier than it should be :P). We sent a lot of bulk offers and deals to clients, waiting to (hopefully) be finalized on early month. We agreed to take 2 weeks off any business related and focused on ourselves and our families.
Since my family didn’t plan to go anywhere this Eid, I decided to scan my sketchbook and digitizing my handwritings. I didn’t socialize that much this Eid, I barely went outside my room. I spent the entire week so focused on the task and hungry for more. I love how the learning curve of each projects that I’ve done this past year. I have many solutions for each problem, get craftier on shortcuts, and thankfully get things done much faster.
And if you notice, I add another banner on the sidebar titled SHOP @ uncletivo. You can now buy items I made on my spare time while not working on Kawung Living. I draw a little bit of line when making Kawung Living’s products and sure there is a limitation when it comes to the line of products that I can make.
I always want to make stationery products for a long time and as I wrote before, I was still searching for the right vendor to do the job. No matter how I want it to be perfect for a launch, I know I can’t do it all at the same time. So instead of doing a big launch, I start small by opting to have a line of blank notebook first.
These A5 notebooks are my first products on the shop, which features simple illustration I made along with a fun tagline. The simple tagline also meant to encourage you to write/doodle more (yes, it always be Pure Magic when it comes to what your two hands can make). The inside cover is a fun surprise which I insisted on having because I want to keep the writing/doodling to be fun until the last page of the notebook. The pocket notebooks are still in production and will feature more of my handwriting. I’m planning to launch the shop officially when it finished. But for now, if you’re interested in having these notebooks, you can go to http://shop.uncletivo.com to get it.
I also opt for easier choice and pick Sirclo’s free package instead of building my own shop in WordPress. I will write you the experience later because now I have a new benchmark to compare it with WordPress.
I’m glad that I’m getting myself pampered the way I wanted to. I created a lot of things, I’m inspired by a lot of things, I learn a lot of things, and I hope this spirit won’t wear off until the last half of the year.
Lastly, let’s hope for a lot of sunshine this month :)
