Gosh, I am so bad at keeping up with this account and all. I'm kind of at a crossroads with Fleur, honestly. I'm not saying I'm giving it up entirely, but my main strength is still 2D artwork and that is what sells best at cons - my stuff. I need to focus on what will bring in the money and exposure. Fleur has been a bit of an uphill battle. Originally, I intended to make lolita accessories through this brand, but they just don't sell. I've since discontinued the cookie necklaces. When the ones I have sell, I won't be making more. Even when I mark them half off, they don't move. I don't know if it's cause I'm not pink enough at my table or the lolitas are all spending their money on AP and BTSSB, but yeah...
It used to frustrate me a bit, but then I realized that I DO have a strength in Kimchi and that is what I need to get my focus back on. I found that when I shifted focus trying to make Fleur into something that it wasn't, Kimchi also suffered cause art time turned into crafting time.
I'll still be doing some cupcakes and cake boxes here and there. The deco rings sell well so will keep doing those. I'm kinda shifting the focus of Fleur to my fabric designs instead as that still uses my drawing skills. I have a lot of ideas for fabric prints so hope to expand the collection on my Spoonflower shop.
Anyway, for now been working on getting stuff done for AX. Can't believe that's coming up in a few weeks! Where is the year going? Anyone going from here?
