I recently worked with a designer to create a new look for my shop. I have made my previous banners & reserved listing markers and just used a photo for my avatar. I wanted everything to look put together though and am so glad I finally took a leap and hired someone to help!
Some previous banners, made a'la me & the help of picnik or some other photo editing website:
This may have been my first banner. It's fine and dandy & I kept it for a good long while.
I felt like my banner needed a holiday spiff, and that's where picnik stickers came in. Gotta love them. I kind of adore the ginger bread man as the A in my name :)
Itching for a change, I went super simple. I dug it, but knew it was definitely temporary until I was brave enough to hire someone.
Here is my brand new, shiny, lovely banner! I just love all of the little embroidery hoops & frames! Do you see the MR+LW one? L♥VE! I think my shop finally "feels" like me & it makes me happy every time I click in and see it all! I have to tell you, I am not the best at working with other creative types. It is hard to let go of control, you know? Some people like being told "This is exactly what I want" and some, nahsomuch. The poor designer sent me a few prototypes to choose from and I'm all, "Scratch everything I told you before... here's what I REALLY want." She did a great job with it(& me!) though & I couldn't have been happier to have hired her! She was so sweet & patient with me! If you like what you see, go visit Kayleigh at Locketmoon Designs! She does blog designs too!
Cutest little avatar I ever did see!
