At long last, I have married my artwork and writing spaces. E Custom Cards and The E is for Erin were always two halves of a whole in my mind, but I launched them on two different platforms. Since I am still operating on a shoestring budget, I have had to do all my web design (perhaps too lofty a term?) myself, but finally the two are one! There are some formatting blemishes that I still need to work out, but the new site is live.
So now E Custom Cards is both a page on this blog and a site in its own right – both URLs will take you to the same page. I streamlined the ordering process so that you can just email me your order information and then I will bill you via Paypal. And I also simplified the pricing so that cards with 1-2 people have a flat rate of $8 and cards with more characters are $10 – no separate charges for background illustration. People who are more comfortable using Etsy to order still have that option.
Another change I’m making is to blog more about my drawing work here, rather than on the old ECC blog, including posting more pics of what I’ve been working on lately. My work and parenting life are pretty smushed together offline so it just makes sense to present them that way online too! I hope that my E is for Erin readers will enjoy these changes and that my card customers will also enjoy getting a peek into my “real” life here.
