At my very first job, every employee had to take the Strengthsfinder quiz. The quiz is a series of statements that you agree or disagree with, and at the end of the quiz you get a list of your top 5 strengths. The idea is that by identifying your strengths, it sets you up to maximize them at work. At the top of my list was Achiever.
Pricing your work is hard. Whether you’re a freelancer or you sell handmade goods, putting a value on something you’ve created is tough. It requires balancing a competitive rate with paying yourself what your time is worth, and for many people (myself included), it’s easy to undervalue your time.
On Tuesday, March 18th, Huge is having a flea market for local Brooklyn artists from 5:30-8PM. I’ll be selling emoji embroidery there AND introducing a new pattern. Come hang!
On Thursday night, my emoji embroidery was part of the first-ever emoji pop-up market at Eyebeam Art+Technology Center in Chelsea. I had no idea what I was doing when I started. Here’s what I learned.
I’m excited to announce that on December 12th I’ll be a seller in the first-ever Emoji Pop-up Market as part of the Emoji Art and Design Show. I’ve been embroidering emoji day and night in preparation and will be selling thumbs ups, poops, and dancers. Come by to check out the art show, say hi, and buy some handcrafted emoji!
This is the first of many, many poops.
