My Etsy week with new items!

Growing My Love For You gift card

Hello everyone, how was your New Year Holiday? I had a great time reading, sketching and preparing new items for my shop:-)

I had decided to make my first week of this year my Etsy week. That is to add new items and renovate shop appearance. I spent the whole yesterday taking photos of the new items and just finished listing them this afternoon. There are 17 items on my shop now but I still have more to create and add so that people will have some variety to browse and enjoy.

Growing My Love For You gift card and tag set

Let me introduce you to one of my newest listings here: This Growing My Love For You gift card set was transformed from one of my doodles I did when I just started the shop. As some of you may know, I love drawing things on little girls' heads. No reason, just have fun with it. I also found from my drawing practice in The Sketchbook Project 2011 how much I enjoy doing curvy lettering. So, I added the 'love you' to the leaves. Do you like it?

It's funny how just a bit of little girl's head tilting can give cuter and more lively expression. Sometimes I just have to force myself to stop playing around with my drawing or else it will never be finished!

As I once said that my little girls seemed cuter in small size, I made this card half of what I used to do. The size is 7.5x10.5cm. Pretty nice for a gift card. I even made her smaller on mini tag that comes with the set.

I'm still not sure if selling this as a set will work. Maybe people might see the little tags unnecessary? Or should I separate them into 2 listings? What do you think?

I have so much to learn for this shop. It's a hard work but I like the feeling of seeing my drawings turn out good in real prints and even happier when someone appreciate and order them ^-^

I have some other items to talk about but you can go ahead and visit my shop now if you would like.

Oh! Have I said that the FREE SHIPPING period will end on January 15. 2011? Grab this chance to enjoy this cute little girls!

Thank you so much for coming. I will do my best to visit all of your blogs and comment. Have a merry day!

  1. Very very cute Miss, love the love you leaves... try doing a combination of card + gift tags and cards or tags and see which one sells best. Hope that makes sense. My brain is mush spent two days on a computer course. How's the sketch book going?

  2. I always like your little girls, and love the bright eyes on this one. I agree with Catherine~ sell as a set, and sell separate, and see which way sells best.

    Did you make that fuzzy heart on the stem, or buy it?

  3. Happy New Year, darling! Your Growing My Love illustration is super cute. ^.^

  4. I love it! I think it works well as a set. I still have lots to learn about Etsy, too.

  5. Catherine,

    Thanks! I will try listing various combinations and see what works. As for the Sketchbook, just did some pages last night, less than 10 pages to go!


    Someone gave me the fuzzy heart. I think it's cute :-)

    Happy New Year! Thanks for coming :-)

    Yes, It's fun creating but it's quite tiring learning about marketing and promoting. But we have to do our best!

    Good luck with your shop. The girl is really cute.

    Happy New Year.


  7. Hi Pavinee,

    The cursive lettering from the tree looks cute!! I like how they seems like 'growing' from the tree :D

    I think you can separate them into few listings like the card, tag and sets so people can have more choices to pick/choose (and somehow that makes your shop has more items, hehe) :D Good luck and all the best to your shop in 2011 !!

    On the other hand, just to let you know that I would like to give you the "Stylish Blogger Award" for your awesomely stylish blog! :)
