a new look for nature’s my friend

31 May

I am so thrilled to finally be sharing this very exciting news with all of you lovelies! It has been almost 2 months that I have been toying with the idea of re-vamping both my etsy shop and my blog, and it has finally come to fruition after a lot of planning, drawing, collecting, photographing and editing (and many other -ings in between like imagining, sourcing, smiling, stressing, worrying, etc). Perhaps you already noticed the change with the new blog header above! The online shop has had the most work done to it though, with new, natural and creative photos for almost all of my 100+ products. My hope is to generate more traffic, be included in more treasuries and have a boost in sales by shedding a fun and creative light on all of my animal art. I finally feel like my inspiration and my personality are not just demonstrated in my artwork, but are also now included in the photograph’s scene and ambiance. My shop and my creations just look so much more alive now; I couldn’t be more proud of all of this hard work. Along with the shop make-over, I have been quaking in my boots to post some of the new products I’ve created. The most awesome of which are my new round stickers / letter seals. These 20 beauties feature a plethora of animal portraits created in a variety of media including etching, silkscreen, painting, drawing and more. Animals included are: foxes, wolves, owls, deer and passerine birds. Stickers are available as a large group set of 20 or as animal groups in sets of 4. Take a peek:I have also rounded out my large rectangular sticker packs, and my glossy postcard packs, up to collections of 10 which include a couple of new designs like the proud hawk portrait and a graceful flying tree swallow. My rectangular stickers are now available individually like postcards, so get your favorite postcard and write to a far away friend or scoop up your favourite sticker and slap some nature wherever it’s needed! In celebration of the shop make-over and the new treats in there, I wanted to offer you sweethearts 15% OFF all orders made May 31st – June 3rd. Just pick out the nature inspired creations you’d love to own and during the checkout type in the coupon “NEWLOOK2012” to have your goodies discounted! And for those of you who are always looking for a good bargain, I recently lowered prices on some items and moved them to a new SALE section in my shop. Thank you SO MUCH for taking a look at all of the adorable new product shots in the shop and please do spread the word if you like what you see! Also wanted to say a big thank you in advance for any favorite hearts or potential sales you may be responsible for. Much love to you all and feel free to share your thoughts and reactions to all of the exciting new products and visual changes, I’d love to hear them!

    Looks really slick, Jessica! Where did you get the animal figures? Did you already have them or buy them with your redesign in mind? Is that moss? Looks lush with a bit of fantasy.

      Thanks Jeannine. Some of the animal figurines I have owned for many years as decoration in my studio and bookshelf. They inspired the idea. I sourced out some more to add to them. And yes, that is moss… it’s so pretty, I’m tempted to make little terrariums with it now.
