So if you haven't already noticed this about me .... I have a really hard time keeping things the same. I like change. I need change. I grow my hair, I cut my hair, I dye it, I curl it ... every few months something new. I knit socks for a month ... I knit mittens for a month ... I make stationary. Something is always changing.
This weekend it was the look of my store! I was getting tired of seeing the same old logo everywhere and I wanted to try to come up with an image that is more of a "brand" than I had before. I spent some time playing around with some clip art in a card program I own and voila! The birth of a new banner! I'm hoping that the little flowers on the side can serve as my brand image on both my tags and my stamps.
I also changed my tag line to "A little something for everyone." My shop is evolving and so should my image along with it right? Over the past few weeks I have toyed with the idea of opening up a second shop so that I could separate my knitting from my stationary, but for the moment I've decided to keep it all together. This collection shows who I am, which I feel is an important part of the shop's image. I like to knit (sometimes), I like to make cards (other days), and I even like to quilt (coming soon!). It also keeps my friends and family from having to remember that there are different websites for different products.
Also new is my blog page! I stumbled across this great website called My One Cute Blog that has all of these great free templates! I may play around with those because they are so much fun, but I wanted something a little more fun, especially with the new banner.
So what do you think? New banner ... love it or hate it? Take the poll on the side bar!
Until the next time ...
