|All wrapped up!|
I chose to start my blog as a way to share my crafting with my friends and, well, the World. And so the Gingerbread Bunny was born. At first my blog background came from the general templates, which were OK but not what I really wanted. It didn't look pretty enough. I bought a book, Blogging for Bliss by Tara Frey, which led me to a website called Smitten Blog Designs (check their site out if you have a blog you would like to revamp!) who offer lots of really funky backgrounds for blogs, and that is where my current design came from. Much prettier I think.
From my blog, my Folksy store grew and I wanted to make sure that when I launched the business side of The Gingerbread Bunny it looked professional. For me, this is very important and as a consumer, I notice this! I paid a small price for the lovely Aleximo Croissant on Folksy to design my logo, lettering, business postcards, letterhead and stickers - everything I needed to get going. I have to say it was well worth it and I feel it just makes the whole business look that little bit more professional.
Finally, my packaging! I knew that when I posted items out to their new owners, the packaging needed to be a little bit special. It makes such a difference when your parcel arrives looking pretty! I wrap all my items in tissue paper, tied with cord or ribbon with a postcard attached as the invoice. I found an eBay shop that sells purple mailing bags (as this matches my colour scheme) and seal the bags with a sticker.
