Hello there lovely Buttoneers! I am just popping in today to tell you about my Eliston Button Etsy Shop refresh that I am working on at the moment. Following on from the behind the scenes work I have been tippy tappying away at that I mentioned a few weeks ago in my Around Here…I’m Back blog post. I have been playing round with my prices and postage prices and they are a lot more buyer friendly now, especially now that I have invested in packaging supplies in bulk! Hurrah! I have also been busy snapping away refreshing the photographs to spruce the place up a bit.
A lot has changed since some of these photographs were taken and I have progressed my photography and editing skills leaps and bounds since I opened my shop – Hooray!
If you are a long time follower of this little corner of the blogosphere, you may remember waaayyy back to my first ever blog challenge – ’27 Before 27′ where I made 27 embroidered felt brooches before I turned 27 – ahh! The days of being in my twenties!
Some of these little doses of felty goodness have sold as one-of-a-kind pieces, some have been remade, some are still looking pretty waiting to jet off to their new homes…
…Some of them are even brand new designs from my Create 28 or Create 30 blog challenges! Wherever their origin, they all deserved brand new, bright and colourful, crisp photographs to show them at their best. I thought I would take the opportunity in the quieter summer months before the Christmas rush to get started, but you can absolutely guarantee that two of them sold just as I was editing the photographs can’t you! Typical!
Naturally, I am pretty darn proud of these little bundles of lovely so I wanted to show them off and remind you of their felty goodness…In rainbow order…of course!
