ElegantSnobbery.com (and some Winners!)

Exciting news! I am now the proud owner of ElegantSnobbery.com. Yeah that's right - I've put on my big girl pants and bought myself a domain.

The other day, the lovely Amanda of OhMandie stepped my computer-illiterate self through the process of it all (thanks, Amanda!) and it feels pretty darned good.

Its been really frustrating, trying to get my shop out there for the people who haven't discovered Etsy yet. I find that the majority of the people who I give my business cards out to, lose them and ask for more because they can't remember my shop address. Word of mouth isn't helping my business much either, as most people forget the '.etsy.com' part of my shop address and come up with nothing. So many times I've heard from friends and family, "I looked up your shop, but it said the address couldn't be found. I didn't know you had closed it down!"

And my heart always sinks a little because I know that they just forgot the '.etsy.com' part.

Well no longer, folks! When you want to share the shop of a certain illustrator of prints for kids and the kids at heart with everyone you know (and I'm talking about myself here, just in case you aren't sure - hint hint, wink wink), you don't have to worry about remembering the '.etsy.com' part of the web address. HURRAY!

I had my new web address forwarded to a blogger page. Its pretty simple to set up, as blogger is really familiar and easy to use - not to mention I don't know the first thing about setting up a real website. But it links to my blog and links to my shops, and I think it will be a nice stepping stone into my illustration world for those who don't yet know about Etsy.

Hip hip hurray!

and more news, I have winners of my Winklepots hair bow/ Elegant Paperie goodies giveaway! Congrats to AlyGator and Rocket Girl! I'll be getting these out to you as soon as possible.

Enjoy!
xoxo,
