so psyched

About six months ago (I think!) I looked at how nicely my Etsy designs were doing, and decided that it would be the most marvellous thing to have my own website. However, I wasn't sure that I would be able to fork out the money needed to get it professionally designed, and so, instead, designed it myself. It turned out to look quite ok, but was a nightmare to update and upkeep, and so I soon went back to selling on Etsy.

Today, looking forward to growing pequitobun in 2008, I decided that is time to actually think about pequitobun as a coherent "brand", and get a professionally designed website that represents pequitobun the way I see it.

With regard to the web design aspect, the natural choice was Aeolidia, I've been lusting after a website designed by them for a while now, and I'm so happy that I am finally in a place where I can justify the cost! Arianne has designed so many FANTASTIC websites, and the testimonials on their website are so glowing, I have complete confidence in entrusting them with this baby =).

Even more excitingly, one of my favourite Etsy artists, Lou at artandghosts, agreed to do the art for the website! You can see some of her art in this post. I can't think of anyone I would love more to have create art to represent pequitobun, and I'm so so SO thrilled and excited.

YAY!! It's going to be a busy 3 months till the anticipated launch in April, and I will try to log the progress here. I will be saving all my new designs for the launch, soooo it'll be doubly exciting for me to show those designs too.

Happy New Year to you and me!
