Business (Not) as Usual: Remaining Relevant in the Middle of a Pandemic

In March of 2020 things changed for a lot of people. For MeganHStudio, things came to a grinding halt *queue screeching brakes* as restrictions on gatherings and celebrations became part of daily life.

My stats fell off a cliff: A Visual:

Most of my art work is used to celebrate special life events: baby showers, birthdays, retirement parties, etc. And now that a lot of those celebrations aren’t happening in the same way, I find myself with a bit of extra time on my hands.

Up until now, I’ve used my website as a resource for people looking for party ideas and to ensure customers have another way to contact and connect with me. Well, it’s time to pivot now that I’m trying to figure out a way to retro-fit my printer in a parachute so that I don’t crash land.

I’m an artist selling my work on Etsy and Amazon Handmade. I specialize in fingerprint trees and guestbook alternatives for people to use at their special events. Guests add their fingerprint and sign their name as leaves on a tree, balloons on a string, or petals on a flower. Then the picture can be framed as a keepsake. I have art prints and invitations too, of course.

These last few weeks, I find myself with some time on my hands as my orders have flatlined. It’s not all bad. Like many of you, a lot of my time is filled with attempting to home school a kindergartener and a second grader, while also entertaining a one-year-old. But I’m spending my remaining free time working on new things; checking a few things off the to-do list that has done nothing but grow the last few years. 

It’s Officially Freebie Friday!

While we work on ending this pandemic, my website will include free downloads for you for a limited time! While things are slow, every Friday you can come here to see a free download–maybe an art print, a fingerprint tree, or maybe even a coloring page or two! We’ll see where this adventure takes us! You can start here with the first Freebie Friday.

[NOTE: As business has started to pick up, Freebie Friday has been discontinued for the time being!]

I’ll Be Here

And when you’re ready to celebrate all those things that so deserve to be celebrated—the new babies, the birthdays, the weddings and anniversaries, the teachers and coaches—I’ll be here. And I’ll have a bunch of new stuff ready for you to choose from, too 🙂 Shop Now
