The Beginnings of a Shop...

I straightened my hair for the very first time since January when I lopped it all off and let it go curly. It's strange to be able to run my hand through my hair, and it looks so much shorter straight than I expected it to be.

Hair Flick!!

Nothing much to talk about today, except that I now have my swing tags, business cards and fabric labels for my Etsy Shop - very very exciting :)

They are beautiful, the cards are printed in matt on a lovely textured, recycled paper stock and I can't wait to show them off by sending them out in packages and handing them out to people (in hopes that maybe I'll get a few local custom orders). The labels are printed on a twill cotton fabric and look and feel marvelous (no itchy tags here!!).

I'll get a picture of them up soon for you - but the shop opens next week so you'll get to see them then anyway!

I'm also not going to have as much stock in the shop as I had initially wanted for the launch, but pushing myself at the cost of the quality of the garment is not something I am prepared to do. So to that extent, things will be added weekly to keep it fresh, new and interesting which I think is probably better in the long term any way.

Have a lovely day,
