This past week, I have been playing a lot with color (and from my greeting, I guess, embracing my inner cowgirl).
Mostly I've been tweaking some pieces you already may've seen (because as I might've mentioned before, I'm a chronic tweaker):
Why, yes, you did!
Not quite sold on that bright yellow, but I do kinda dig the black and white!
I also have given The Misfit Mermaid a more traditional tailfin (so now there's orange, blue, pink and green...with a few more probably coming soon!) and a light brown hair color (in addition to the blonde, redhead and darker brunette options):
These aren't in the shop yet, but if you'd like one, I can certainly get one up right away and just for you.
They aren't there yet -- along with a handful of others - because I'm struggling a little bit with how to offer prints in multiple colorways or with color options. I thought I had an okay system, but lately:
- If I have a print listed with a color chart and instructions to choose and let me know the preference when checking out, nine times out of ten, there is no selection indicated, which means a delay in shipping (and I'm firmly convinced that quite a large number of people sign up for Etsy with secondary e-mail accounts they rarely check...because fairly frequently I don't hear back at all when I send a message inquiring about order details...so if you sign up for Etsy, please use an e-mail address where sellers can reach you if they need to!)
- If I have (like with my little princess and frog and misfit mermaid) a seperate listing for each hair color so I know that I will be sending the buyer what they want, without a doubt, I get frequent messages inquiring if I have it in a different hair color and, of course, I do, but they just didn't see it (and of course I don't mind the contact AT ALL, but it's an extra step I'd like to save shoppers!) Plus I know shops with 5000 listings can get overwhelming and I'm hesitant to put ten different versions (blond hair with pink background, blonde hair with purple background, redhead with pink background, redhead with purple background, etc) of one print up.
Any ideas? I'd love to hear them
At any rate, there are quite a few new prints up in the shop, with more to come (hopefully very soon). You can see all the new stuff in my New For November section, which, ooops, I'll have to change to New For December very, very soon!
That's all I've got for now. Happy (belated) Thanskgiving to you all and happy (early) birthday to my bestie!
