nuevo look

Its so exciting! Katsai is getting a little "face lift"...

When I reactivated my shop on Etsy a couple of months ago (after a slight break while looking for and moving into our new home) I updated the shop banner to this one shown below:

I was really pleased with the fresh look, and liked the fact that I'd managed to include pictures of some of my designs too.

The new logo is an adaptation of the design I came up with to print on some white cotton and make into simple totes last year.

However, ever since "debuting" my new banner in the shop I've been trying to come up with a design for reprinting my business cards based on the new logo, and I just couldn't figure out a layout that convinced me. Until now :)

Soooo... I have just now ordered a whole new batch of Katsai cards and can't wait to see them in real life! I know, patience, patience girl (as it should be a week or two until I get them) but I'm just so excited! Good job I don't have a home-printer, really, as I'd probably have just wasted so much paper printing out little pretend business cards just to admire them!

I also ordered some new postcards to be printed too, and so, well, just humour me when I gush all about them and show them off here at some point in the next couple of weeks. Ok? Can't say you weren't warned ;P

Now. Next dilemma: should I update the banner here too? Hmmmmm...

more to come...

Well my blog posts seem to becoming few and far between... sorry about that for anyone who may have wondered where I'd got to: I'm still here!

It's been a fairly busy week, what with family visits (which have been great!) and trips down to the post-office to send my goodies to their new homes, my shop is getting emptyier by the day (so much for my determined attempt to restock ;P).

But, I do just about have two new Militario tops ready to list (just need to hand-sew the strips and buttons onto the 2nd one and thats it!) in my Etsy shop, so hopefully visitors to the store in the next few days won't be too disapointed by the reduced stock?

This has been one of my most popular designs so far, with lots of enquiries and interest, which is really encouraging! I know I've said this before, bu at some point I just HAVE to make one for myself too.... I'd hate to be left without, as it really is one of my faves too ;P
