The vision for my new branding was a mix of stuff: Gold, bits of floral, hints of black & white stripes, chalkboard and doodles. I would say we got there. Yesterday I had a couple of girlfriends come over and I took the product photos to get everything just the way I imagined. I love how the little twinkle lights pop with the gold on the home page!
For the shop inventory, I put in a few old favorites plus some new fall pretties and I introduced the Gold Label. These are a little more exclusive as only a couple are available. They are very unique to my usual styling and a maybe more on the dramatic side. I did get a couple of questions asking if I would be putting up my old stuff (the things I used to make that completely blew my business up) and at first I wasn't sure. I want to evolve as an artist and since I see copy cats constantly & have had about 20+ of my own customers open shops and sell identical items after buying from me its hard to go back to that style and not be in the same crowd, you know? ... but in short, I realized that my clientele is loyal and no matter how much I get discouraged they encourage me that my designs and my service is what they want- I can't ignore that. So revamped versions of my old designs will hit the shop along with some baby items later this week and my plan is to do new shop updates way more often!
...and before I forget
