Behind the Scenes

So, to start the year off, I thought I'd get my business whipped into shape a bit. I've tried to make sure that my profiles are all correct, that my shop setups are right, just some housekeeping really.

I've also had a new banner created for my Folksy and Etsy shops, here it is

Feedback / Comments welcome!

I'm very good at rushing headlong into things without having a bit of prep done first. So I'm trying to reign myself back in and do the jobs in the right order. I've almost decided on my new packaging - I'm very indecisive! Then there's a standard format for my listings as I'm sure I forget to mention some crucial bits of information sometimes.

None of this work is very creative, but hopefully will make the running of things a bit easier. However, I am focusing my attention on Friday, because I'm allocating that to a completely job free day, where I can just sit and be creative. I've got so many ideas running around in my head and I'm trying not to let them distract me. Friday's the day! Keep everything crossed that I actually achieve something, and that I haven't put myself under too much pressure.

Your banner is very nice!
Good luck with your "fridays", you sound very organised. I need to sort myself out too! :)

I do like your banner but the beads in the middle arent very clear so you cant make them out very well, I assume there is some of your lovely silver in there too? And your lovely heart toggle isnt very clear to see all you gorgeous detailing, I think it may have been better if they were 2 separate parts. Sorry if I am too brutally honest, I do like to give my opinion freely. Just feel free to ignore me if you want to thats absolutley fine as I'm sure you have put in a lot of thought to it!!! :0)

Snow Queen - I try to be organised!! I have a split personality on one side I work in accounts so am quite methodical, on the other side I'm creative. It's an interesting mix!

Elaine, thanks for your feedback, I do appreciate it don't worry! I'm at the stage with the banner where it's better than what I had before, but not exactly what I want either! I got someone from Etsy to do it for me and it didn't cost me too much. I've got someone new designing a logo for Tiny Charms so if that goes well I may get her to redo my FS banner. At least it's a job ticked off my long list for now!! Don't worry I still love ya!

Sorry Becci only just got back to this one, I'm called a 'tell like it is' kinda gal, sometimes people dont like it so I have to be careful not to overdo it. I've had a few upsets on the forum because of my big 'gob'!!! Thanks for being lovely!! :0))
