Paperie Switch and a Super Cute Logo

So, I opened my paperie shop last winter/spring because I was getting so many messages from people letting me know that I should have <insert illustration title here> in my shop as a gift tag or notecard... to which I always replied: "But I do!!"

All of my paperie goodness was getting buried underneath the piles of illustrations in my shop. BUT now that I've had my paperie open, I have to deal with the hassle of people wanting things from both of my shops at the same time, and me not being able to have them all in the same transaction with combined shipping and payment... so annoying! Whats a girl to do?

I made the decision today to just shut my paperie down and move it all back into my Elegant Snobbery shop... maybe things will just go back to being lost behind all of my other shop items, but that's okay. I'll have one less shop to sign into daily and one less email account to check every day. Sounds kinda nice.

On a different note... check out the logo design I created for the fabulous Alyssa of Stitch N Stones:

I'm happy to say that she had a sale within a few hours of having her new logo up on her shop banner. Dare I say I drew her a lucky logo? Yes! I dare!

Thanks, Alyssa for giving me the opportunity to design for you! Glad you love it.

Such hard decisions we have!!! I know your pain...I really do. That's a big reason I'm closing two shops and making one new one.

STILL lovin my logo BTW! You are my lucky charm. I'm hoping it carries over to the Lotto, Powerball or Mega Millions :) I'm anxiously waiting for my new business cards and am already eyeballing some custom sew in labels. And some stickers...and, and, and!!! Thanks again.

The hassle of having two shops is exactly why I ended up leaving Etsy (as a seller, anyway!) and staying with my stand-alone site. Customers kept wanting to combine orders and it was a logistical nightmare!

Etsy and I didn't get along when it came to having more than one shop. And then eventually selling on there at all turned out to be more of a hassle than anything, which is why I got cozy in my blog rather than my handmade shop.

Easier is better. I think that your stuff is so great, it will sell either way.

two etsy shops is just more trouble than its worth. Nothing wrong with choosing to simplify :)
