New Release | These Walls (Moving Day) + BIG News!
Last month I released a digital kit named These Walls and if you’re a Digi Show listener you may have heard me mention that I had created some moving/change of address type elements for the original kit but it started to feel as though it was having an identity crisis. So I pulled them aside and made a coordinating mini kit with all of the moving “bits.”
And you’ll be happy to know that it’s totally secure in its identity. It’s feeling really good about itself.
You can save 20% on These Walls (Moving Day) through 9/23/2012. Also? You can save 20% on the original kit just in case you missed it the first time.
BIG NEWS | One Little Bird Is Migrating
Speaking of moves, I’m excited to announce that One Little Bird will be migrating over to The Lilypad on a permanent basis. The One Little Bird store at Oscraps will officially close on Sunday, 9/30/2012, and the majority of those products will become available at The Lilypad on 10/3/2012.
(I say “majority” because I’m retiring a few of the old ones.)
(Although, I keep pulling things out of the “Retire” bin on a whim.)
Being at Oscraps has allowed me complete freedom and total control over my product, promotions and brand for the past couple of years and I don’t think I could have built this business the way that I wanted to anywhere else. It was exactly where I needed to be in order to establish my voice and build my own little piece of happy. There’s no way to adequately describe in words how important of a role Vicki (the owner of Oscraps) played in this process simply by trusting me to know what was best for One Little Bird.
Recently I found myself open to the idea of finding a store that was a little more hands-on so long as I felt that those hands belonged to owners whose vision and passion for this industry closely mirrored my own. I believe I’ve found that at The Lilypad and I feel very fortunate to have been able to spend the past 3 months there testing the waters and seeing whether we were a good fit for each other.
It might seem as though I had a divine stroke of GENIUS releasing a “moving” kit at the same time that I planned to announce that I’m moving my store, but I have to admit that it was just a serendipitous event. I don’t want anyone believing that I’m actually that together as a person. It was more like it took me a week longer than I thought it would to finish it, then I was all “Lookie there! Huh. What a coincidence!”
I’m really excited to be embarking on something new at a place that still feels so familiar to me – but goodbyes are difficult, too. I invite all of you to join me in October for some fun debut activities at The Lilypad. I’ll be offering up a fan favorite (The Grand Pillage!) as the grand prize for a month-long page challenge we’ll be running in the forums. Plus I would love for you all to join me in a Live Chat in The Lilypad Chatroom to talk about whatever fluffs your feathers. More details on those will be coming out shortly!
But for now, I’ll leave you with some…
