Greetings from the Midwestern tundra, Bookwyrms! How is everyone holding up? Has the cabin fever fully sunk its claws into your sanity or are you still fighting the inevitable mid-February meltdown? 😉 Jk, jk, I actually spent a nice, hygge-ful morning sipping coffee and watching the snowfall, and I wish you all the same mood!
Anyhoo, I started a new(ish) project over the weekend — hence the new tab in my blog’s header. I used to have a small CafePress shop with lots of weird and artsy designs that proclaimed my love of all things mermaid, coffee, millennial pop culture, and more mermaids. It didn’t exactly go viral, but I had fun creating the designs.
Cut to six years later as I’m jealously following all these awesome influencers with their side hustles and their marketable hobbies and thinking, “You know what? Why don’t I dust off a few of my old designs and see how it goes?”
And so! There are only two designs so far, but if you’re the kind of person who likes to wear their folklore and random millennial pop culture nerdiness with pride…or at least contemplate it while inhaling those sweet, sweet Arabica fumes…check out NeriSiren’s Coffee Grotto! (literal coffee-related designs are forthcoming…the one I made six years ago isn’t quite up to my current standards).
I welcome feedback on my designs and on the user-friendliness of the shop…just don’t be too harsh or I’ll send my Billy Goats after you 😉
Now, go have some Girl Scout cookies and contemplate the deep spiritual symbolism of a groundhog’s shadow. Or whatever brings you bliss.
