Adventures Online


I am currently undertaking two new adventures that I am oh, so happy about.

The first, is my new family blog. As Little Lovables expands, it's time to create a distinct space for me to gather my mommyhood rants and relishes, family adventures, and such. It's called, Oh, Those Aarons! and I hope you come by to visit.

My second adventure, concerns Etsy (of course). I have been playing around for a while with graphic design and have been having so much fun with it! I still have a lot to learn, but with my new Little Lovables shop graphics kits, I am offering them at very low prices for people just starting out, but who still wants to get something a little bit funky and glamorous! What do you think of them? What themes/colors are you looking for in a banner?


As a seller mentor, one thing I always think of when I first come across a shop is their banner. I have heard it said, that if a seller can't put up a clean looking presentable banner, than their products/customer service can't be that great. Now, I know this isn't true for many of us, but I can see how a first impression of the shop is determined by the first thing the {potential} customer sees, your banner and avatar.

I will also compile a huge mentor list of advice soon, so if you have any questions (don't be afraid to ask, I've probably already heard it!) then let me know and I will try and address each one.

I totally agree, I love a sharp looking banner, it just says fabulous.

I have stumbled upon your blog by chance, and am so happy I did! What a great blog!
Those banners look great, and I agree with you about the first impression issue. A banner that doesn't look right to me, will scare me away from a shop, I must admit!
Nice to meet you, I'll be back and I will follow ;)

this blog is lovely. I'm totally with you on the banners-- it could be the graphic designer in me but stretched type makes me want to run for it ;) like your creations-- especially the fourth one down-- very simple with a touch of quirky.
