Hey guys! How has lockdown treated you all? I'm sure a lot of you have been through some spectacularly shit times recently, and for that I'm sorry and I hope things are on the rise for you. As for the rest of you, I'm glad that you made it through to the other side. 

I've had a pretty busy lockdown which had its ups and downs, left and rights, back and forths. But I'm pleased to say that I'm back at work and getting back into my "new normal" routine. 

One thing that I decided to try whilst cooped-up, avoiding the world, is start a small online business. Now, let me preface this by stating that I have no intention on quitting my day job, packing it all in, and pursuing a life of Etsy stardom because I'm far more of a realist than that. I am fully aware that the majority of my sales will come from my supportive friends and family (if somehow you've managed to work your computer - Hi Grandpa!) and that I will barely earn enough to buy an apple, let alone my entire months groceries. SO, with that said, let me introduce you to my hobby business! 

Sea Elle Are. A few people have already guessed, but the name comes from my initials C L R. Pretty simple, needs no more explaining!

Now, what do I sell? Good question (asked no one). I sell a variety of weird, quirky prints that no one asked for or wants! I wanted to include stickers, but I couldn't be bothered to fork out £250 on a Cricut cutting machine and also...I'm almost 26 and haven't used a sticker for about 15 years. 

So basically, I have weird shit going on in my head so I thought I'd take a pen (stylus) to paper (iPad) and get some of that weird shit out of my head for you lovely lot to judge (or buy!)

Here's a few examples of some things that I've already made.

If you want to have a look at what else I've done, you can find my etsy store here or else it’s in my nav bar under ‘shop’

Anyway, that's me, and that's my new thing that I'm doing. Support me if you'd like, but I don't expect it - like I said, it's just a bit of fun for me, and a bonus if anyone actually likes it!

Peace out <3
