THE WINNER IS:
Would you love to have your own website - but just don't know how to make one? I found the perfect shop for you!!
But before we get to the give away - let's learn a little bit more about the shop.
*Where are you from? Tell us a bit about yourself.
I'm from Missouri in the USA. I'm addicted to the computer so I LOVE making websites and graphics like banners and logos. I like animals but limit myself to 1 dog and 1 cat.
When I'm not designing on the computer I have a full time job. I enjoy drawing (and wish I could make that my craft) and reading. Games are great too, I like to play card and board games with my family (have you heard of sequence?) and video games with my brother. I can't wait to try the xbox kinect.
*How did you decide on your shop name? Why did you start your business?
My dad's nickname for me when I was little was "doodlebug", so when trying to figure out a name I decided to use that and "digital" since I was selling online. It works on two levels now because "doodle" relates to making graphics.
*What’s your supply addiction; is there a specific color or type of supply you just can’t pass up?
Since most things are made with photoshop I don't have a supply addiction, but I do have an addiction to buying fabric that I never end up using. Anytime I see a beautiful fabric I want to buy it (even though I don't sew), so I ask my mom what could be made out of it :)
*What do you do when you’re not being an artist? What activities do you enjoy?
I got into web design years ago helping my mom list on ebay. We would see auctions that had pictures in the description and said "how do they do that". Found out it was html so I started learning it. My mom always has crafts going so I learned more html to build websites for her craft (since they were too expensive to have made). Then I wanted to offer affordable website design for the small business and craft person like my mom.
*Which item in your shop did you enjoy making the most and why?
My favorite item I have made was the wedding cake clip art. It was the first thing I made with adobe illustrator and I was surprised and happy that I could make something like that.
*If you could give a piece of advice to a new shop - what would it be?
My advice to new shops is to not under price your work. I'm upping my prices as my portfolio grows, but guess what? Having lower prices doesn't help you sell more things. So give your products value and don't forget to pay yourself after the material cost.
*Are there other places on the net we can find you?
