In a bit of shameless self-promotion, I'm excited to announce the opening of a new Etsy shop, Mindful By Design, full of products ready to support your mental health and personal growth goals.
When you visit the shop you'll find greeting cards with messages of affirmation and support - those are physical products that will arrive at your door step within days of purchasing. You'll also find many Printable designs, combinations of drawing/painting/photography and messages of affirmation and support - these are digital, printable products that arrive in your inbox within seconds of purchasing. They can be used as computer backgrounds, wall hangings, phone cover, messages of support to friends, or anything else your mind can come up with!
In the future you will find an expanded selection of greeting cards, postcards, lapel buttons, mindfulness tools, and customized/personalized mental health support designs. The shop is evolving and I'm open to your thoughts - something you want to see more of? Let me know! A particular format of item excites you (i.e. you're gaga for buttons)? Let me know!
