well 2022 was a year, to say the least & I for one, am glad to say good riddance to it.
as i walk into 2023 & the opportunities a new year brings, I look forward to making some changes to kreative to bring more structure to my process & make this business of mine run smoother for me. kreative continues to be a one gal operation, and with that in mind, I look forward to incorporating some new systems in an effort to keep myself organized & provide a more seamless client experience.
as kreative grows, so does it's offerings. now, growing doesn't always mean adding, but more so amending the things i offer to refine the details & offer it in the best possible way. i choose to stick with the offerings that mean the most to me, that I can offer whole-heartedly & full of passion, the thing that called on me to create this business in the first place. I am finally getting back to my roots & I've never been more excited to embark on the next part of this journey.
I've come to learn that I cannot do everything all at once (despite how hard I may try to), so I have introduced a booking calendar, in which I am refining as I go, to create a healthy schedule for myself. this booking calendar is to schedule our fully custom services that take longer than the everyday creating that we do. to do my best, I need the space I need to do so, and for things like branding, websites & wedding design - space & time is what makes for the best finished products. good things take time & good design is one of those things. more on our booking calendar here.
now in addition to our bookable services, we continue to offer our everyday services. the things you need all the time, or periodically throughout the year, and can't really work into a schedule; the business cards, apparel, small paper printing & sign making of the world. this is first come first serve, with no timeline to stay within because sometimes life & business doesn't fit into a timeline. for each everyday service we will share a timeline based on production on requirements so you know what to expect when proceeding with the job.
while design is my passion & always has been, I have really come to enjoy the hands on aspect of creating physical products for myself; specifically hand painting doormats & sharing this joy with all of you through teaching & workshops! 2023 will be the year of making my mark on the doormat world, with any luck, in a big way! I have some big plans for 'kreative doormat co' and the possibilities that come with this new sub entity of kreative. I felt there needed to be some separation in the things that I do, so I am very excited to start this (kinda) new chapter & grow it to be everything I imagine & more. with growing a new entity comes growing a new social media presence (which is less exciting haha) but I would love it if you would give us a follow & help us spread the word of kreative doormats! follow us here! some of our plans include new doormat offerings (sizes, layering rugs, wholesale), new designs (helloooo 12+ launches in the works), workshops in new places, doormat fundraisers & more!
in other news, we will have oodles of new offerings available to order through our website (lips tight for now but I promise you will know when the time comes to launch!!), this year I plan to ramp up my online offerings to once again attempt to give my customers a more seamless experience of working with me, so check back regularly to see the goings on at kreativeco.ca!
well, I think that's it for now friends. huge thank you if you made it this far in my ramblings of 2023 & all the things. my customers & clients are what make this possible for me so without you, there would be no kreative.
here's to a new year, new possibilities & new ways of doing the things that I love so much.
cheers to you! 🥂
