How it all began
In the fall of 2009 I found myself at home with a newborn and a toddler, facing the prospect of going back to office work. After some discussions with my husband we realized how difficult it would be to adjust again to my rotating shift work and still manage to spend time with TWO children. We sat down and calculated that if I could pull in enough of an income to cover some bills, I'd be able to stay home with the kids and not need to go back to work full-time. So I started wondering how would I be able to generate that money. I had no real skills to fall back on, but I knew I loved design. I started taking any course I could find that would teach me how to use Adobe Illustrator. It was love at first sight (byte?)
One year later, in the fall of 2010, my maternity leave was up and that was that--I was officially an entrepreneur. I started out slowly putting a few clip art sets on Etsy, and was so very excited when they actually sold! So I made a few more. And they sold. It was working! My skills have improved tremendously since those early (scary!) sets, and I've since been blessed with a lovely fanbase!
In the summer of 2013, I wanted to branch out and try something new, I figured since I was creating clip art anyway, why not try to make something else out of it? Clementine Baby was born. I started selling monthly baby stickers on Etsy and again, people loved them! In 2014, I added personalized labels to the mix and they were really well. I rebranded to Lovely Clementine because I was no longer only about babies.
So that's where we are now, mid 2015, with Clementine Digitals and Lovely Clementine both doing very well and a whole lot more on the horizon! My newborn is now a vocal 5-year-old, the toddler is now an incredibly smart 8-year-old, and the husband has a bit less hair. And me? I'm as eager as ever to keep making new, lovely designs for lovely people like you!
My goal is to provide you with a variety of high quality digital papers and clip art, for personal or commercial usage! Please check back as I will be adding new items regularly.
