Newly Revamped Shop

I’ve been working hard since 9am this morning with very few breaks (except of course to feed, change, play with, and otherwise take care of the wee little one). As far as my own needs go…I didn’t eat my first meal until 7pm. I was a busy, busy little bee today. I’ve been working on photo concepts for some time now for my Etsy shop and I finally came up with a look that I love! And also one that I feel is versatile and I can grow with. But, because I’m such a perfectionist, I didn’t want to start with my new products. I wanted the whole shop to have a cohesive look so I retook photos of ALL of my inventory. Then I had to edit and also fiddle around with my Etsy banner. Then, I felt like my blog and shop should kind of coincide so I worked on my blog a bit. But there are greater plans for the future of my blog ::wink:: so I didn’t go all out. Here’s a little screenshot of what the shop is looking like:

Le Petit Hoot: New Look

I’m like that book…If You Give a Mouse a Cookie. Except it’s like, If You Give a Jill a Project. And I said on Twitter almost an hour ago that I was going to relax and watch Downton Abbey. So, now I am. Nighty night, folks!


Spring Color Palette

If you follow me on Twitter, you probably noticed that I posted a little sneak peek of what’s to come for Le Petit Hoot come Spring. In case you didn’t see it…

Le Petit Hoot Spring Collection

Think soft blues, tangerines, chartreuse, soft pinks, and fuschias. I can’t wait! Coming February 2012.

A Merry Indie Christmas

I’m linking up to Casey’s “A Merry Indie Christmas” follower fest. I’m just making it and you can, too! There’s one day left to submit your link.

The goal is to encourage and promote e-commerce, small business, and handmade for the holidays. Hop on over to Casey’s blog to find other creatives out there that are selling handmade gifts this holiday season. And if you’re in the market for handmade totes and clutches, check out my Etsy shop.

It’s Cyber Monday!

In addition to offering the free handstamped greeting card with every purchase, for today only you can get 15% off everything in my Etsy shop. Just use coupon code CYBER15 when you check out to receive the discount.

Happy Cyber Monday!

Cyber Monday! Cyber Monday!

Today’s announcement for Cyber Monday is here!

Cyber Monday Free Christmas Greeting Card

Every purchase from my Etsy shop on Monday, November 28th will receive a free, handstamped greeting card for the holidays. There are two options to choose from: Snowy Day (the “Season’s Greeting” message) or Scandinavian Christmas (the “Merry Christmas” message). If you make a purchase from my shop on Cyber Monday (November 28th), in the “Notes to Seller” section be sure to put either Snowy Day or Scandinavian Christmas. If you don’t want a specific card, leave it blank and I’ll select one at random for you.

The cards are handstamped with red and gold ink on ivory cardstock. Just like a snowflake, no two cards are alike. Very similar but each different!

An Announcement About a Future Announcement

Le Petit Hoot and Cyber Monday

I’m working on something special for Le Petit Hoot for all of you who take part in Cyber Monday. I’d say more than that but I really want to keep the project under wraps. Come back on Friday for a full announcement!

Gah! I’ve Been Gone So Long!

I took an unscheduled break from my blog. For a number of reasons.

I work part-time from home for a neighbor of mine. A few weeks ago she mentioned that she might not have much work for me in the coming weeks. Well, this past Monday my hours were significantly reduced (from about fifteen to five). In preparation for the cut, I’ve been spending a lot of time sewing so that I can kick this little business of mine into high gear. Blogging has definitely been on my mind but creating product has taken precedence right now as my income is significantly reduced and I can’t afford to not work. I need to be able to fill up my shop in hopes that I can start boosting sales to be home with my little man (daycare is expensive and, therefore, not an option). So, my visits may be a little more sparse than usual. But once I can catch up, I’ll be back with plenty of random musings. You can count on that!
