With my apple trees in bloom, and Spring being the time of growth, I'm happily embracing the creativity that seems so abundant right now. I've been hard at work in my studio on special requests for customers, friends/family and diligently making new pieces to list for April's Challenge (below). I can't wait to share my new creations with you, just 2 more days...stay tuned!
While reading the Etsy forums today, I found a post from another seller asking if anyone would like to join her in challenging ourselves to list a new item every day in the month of April. I have to say this couldn't have come at a better time, I've noticed that I've become a bit too complacent with relisting instead of finishing a new piece and listing it. I'm enthusiastically joining the challenge so next month should bring a bunch of new posts with some lovely new baubles! If you're an Etsy seller come join us and let your creative juices flow!
You may or may not have noticed but I've been making changes to the look of my Etsy shop and my packaging. It's been 2 years since my last design change and with the last design...though I was closer to the look I wanted...it still didn't convey it completely. I wanted it to be more me, by incorporating my jewelry and using one of my favorite colors...blue :)
I've recently had the pleasure of working with a wonderful designer, WinchesterLambourne on Etsy. Her shop states she's "Convo Friendly" and that couldn't be more true. She is a dream to work with, she has an eye for elegance and beauty plus an uncanny sense of what you want. You can see the majority of her stunning designs on Flikr.
She has designed my banner and my avatar, you can see them here and most recently designed my business cards (below), which I've just placed an order for at Overnight Prints.
I absolutely love the new look, and it wouldn't have been possible without the artistic eye of WinchesterLambourne ~Thank you Win!! This is definitely one of those times when change feels soooo good!
The GiveAway was a success in more ways than one. One of the things that I had asked for was "Tell me what you would like to see more of in my shop"....this I have to say was my favorite part...so I've been working on some new designs and revamping some old ones.
:::Revamping::: Petite Earrings Line (not sure why I didn't continue selling them after the last pair sold...but thank you for the suggestions to re-introduce these to my shop)
:::New::: Longer Earrings (Chandeliers) and Bracelets
I should have a few of them posted this weekend and I'll be sure to let you know when they're available!
