This new venture has been challenging and I still have a lot to learn. Although I have quite a few designs now on both Redbubble and Zazzle, finding time for all this has been difficult. Some challenges I'm facing: Finding time to create designs While I've found some time to come up with new designs, mostly I then apply that same design to a variety of products.
