Well, friends! We are back up and running. Actually, we were up and running yesterday, but the perfectionist (and the fear) in me chose not to advertise it, so we'll call that our "soft" launch... Anyway! After a good nights sleep (I went to bed at 6 PM, woke up at 9 PM for about 20 minutes and then quickly returned to my covers and did not wake up until this morning at 7 AM! In my defense, I had been up until 6 AM Sunday night, so I definitely needed to recover!) I am feeling much better about the seemingly impossible to-do list and I am ready to share the new shop with y'all!
As I said before, most of the changes happened behind the scenes and I'm hoping we are making the shopping experience on Stephanie Creekmur even more enjoyable. Some things that are new that you CAN see, are our new roll-over navigation links! (You can't seem them on the blog yet but the links above will get you to the right place!) I am in LOVE with them! We also have a new "about" page that shows you every member of our team! Teamwork makes the dream work, y'all! And last but not least, new products! There are currently 17 new additions to the shop and we have a few more still coming! I love every new piece so much (hope you will too!) and I thought I'd share my 3 favorites!
First up is this Amazing Grace print. I love it for a number of reasons - the SC flowers that make an appearance, that it features my hand lettering and that my mama told me about this sweet verse. I can always count on her for the best kind of inspiration! There are "buzz" words in the creative industry and these days, I'm afraid, it seems "grace" is becoming one of them. Grace has nothing to do with us and everything to do with Him. "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness". Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. 2 Corinthians 12:9 This print now hangs on the gallery wall in my bedroom as a daily reminder. Grace - it truly is amazing.
My next favorite is this Give Thanks print. It's a re-make of a sketch I did last year. It was something I doodled on printer paper and quickly put into the computer for a blog post and I started getting emails from people who wanted it as a print! I have also seen it on Pinterest over and over and it has even come up in my Instagram feed from people who didn't even know I was the one who made it! SO, I decided to redraw it and release it as a seasonal print! We ought to give thanks every single day but I am thankful for this season and how it reminds us to stop and be thankful.
And last, but certainly not least, this Merry Christmas Y'all ornament! I love how my hand lettered sketch to vector turned out and this sentiment has shown up in quite a bit of our new Christmas products (print, ornament, gift wrap, and coming soon - coasters!).
I hope you'll head over and check out all of the NEW things we have and don't forget to keep coming back because things change daily around here! OH - and if you have stuck with me through this whole blog post - first up, thank you! And second, we're having another FLASH SALE on our Foil Prints! 50% off until tomorrow when you use coupon code FOILFLASH, so you better hurry and get stocked up for Christmas! ;)
