I feel like this has been a long time coming. But I have been doing a lot of thinking and I cannot wait to finally be able to announce to you all. Starting in January 2022, I will be officially launching my crafting and creators business! You probably have seen me mention in different blogs previously about being some-what creative and really looking at ways to grow my content too.
Stacey’s Signature Stash can be found in all of these places:

(YES! We will FINALLY have art on the “Art for Sale” tab here!)
One of the biggest factors for me to finally do something like this is that I want to have a financial income again. Even if I make a little bit every single month it would be a great way for me to help out my growing family. One of the hardest things even before having kids was moving away from home to Quebec. By moving there for a period of time with my spouse and not knowing French I never got a job there. It is one of the adjustments that I found the hardest because I was basically financially independent before hand. If I can bring in some sort of income whether it be a hundred dollars per month or even a few hundred. I would feel forever grateful to begin this challenge!

So what is it it that I will be selling? For now I am going to be selling a handful of different things as I grow my products and customers. One of the hardest things for me to so is actually grow socials and I hope that I can do so with giveaways along the way. Here is a brief description of what we will be selling to start.
Magnets: These all have been made out of the materials plastic canvas as well as yarn. I sew them by hand and add a magnet to the back. They are able to be customizable and also bought individually or in a bundle. Prices per piece will range from $2.00 CAD to $4.00 CAD depending on the size of the magnet. There will be exceptions for magnets that will be a higher price as they can be fully customizable. Shipping will be extra.
To also tie onto this I do have a few little ideas for plastic canvas also that include keychains, and tooth fairy boxes. These are things that will not take up a lot of space but I think will look great none the less. There will also be customizable magnets in shapes of pencils or crayons that can be done in different colors with a child’s name. These will be specific and more expensive because they will have been customizable and have 5 magnets on the back to display school work or art projects on the fridge! Honestly the possibilities are endless and I really want to see where this takes me!
Next is artwork. I will give a sneak hint that there will be some stoner artwork to start. I feel like I have had this cartoon look idea since high school when I would doodle and I would really like to keep it going. I have had this vision and feel like running with it. I will start by doing miniatures on canvas that are 3 inches by 3 inches and working to bigger canvas as requested. There will also be trippy work and different styles of canvas available. Customs will be available to the best of my abilities too.
Updates for the time being will probably be as I finish items. Customs will always be open if people want specific colors or styles as well too. However I don’t want to set a specific date to update things if by chance I cannot abide to that. Ive been prepping some things to have for a launch. But in terms of updating specific days per week or month, I think as things are done that would be the better version for myself.
Eventually I would love to dabble into some polymer clay. This would be a completely new adventure craft wise for me but I think if I watch some videos or guides I could get the hang of it. I think this could be fun to make earrings or charms or something for a necklace also too. I do have a bit of clay I had bought that I have yet to use but I would love to think of some unique ideas and then see how I can do with them. I don’t want to take someone’s idea and remake them I would rather think of a mini niche and do that myself!
Overall I think this could be a great thing for me in many ways, including something for me to do to prevent munching out at night. That is a major issue for me and where I am working towards losing weight I need to be occupied somehow. As much as I love writing these and working on my stories I would much much rather have a time away from the screen that is for sure!
And lastly, if you are interested in purchasing any of these new items feel free to reach out. I would say the best places would be on the Twitter account or Facebook account messages. That would be the easiest and chances are quickest way to reach me!
