    Hi Holly, thanks for the video. I have one question: What software do you recommend for creating your stationery? Thanks so much.

    I’ve been misspelling stationery in my Etsy tags this whole time! Thanks for the reminder!

    I wish I had the background in graphic design to do this (maybe in the future). Really good info nonetheless.
    I see the blanket you crocheted in the background; it looks so good with the wall color (I kept getting distracted, lol).

    Thanks so much for this advice! I only wish I had found it sooner – I’ve spent weeks researching questions you just answered in 15 minutes! 🙂 I’ve just finished designing my first product line, and now feel more confident in some of my decisions about launching, while re-thinking others based on your tips. Much appreciated!
