new look!...


I'm sure you've noticed some changes slowly taking place on this here blog the last couple of days! If not, well...then...SURPRISE!!

I am so so so so so so so excited to share this with you all that I couldn't even sleep last night. Seriously friends...I was so giddy about all these new changes we are going through.

Needless to say...Sweet Lavender Bake Shoppe was in major need of a make-over. Whenever I say that word- "make-over"..I think of the movie Clueless. It always reminds me of how Cher made over her poor friend Ty and how at 12ish years old all I wanted was a friend to make me over so I could look like them. <---Yes I'm ridiculous serious. Lame, huh? I think I watched that movie a year ago and when it came to the montage part with the make-over and all it's glory I thought to myself, "Why on EARTH would I want to dress like that!?!?!?" Oh me. How times have changed.

What does Clueless have to do with our new look? Nothing.

Earlier this year I decided we needed a major upgrade on our look. Our little blog was getting more and more popular and we really needed a more professional/fun/awesome/friendly look to suit that growing popularity. Within the last few months, our Etsy shop has kind of taken off- which made me REALLY need this make-over process to happen NOW.

Question: What's one of the coolest parts of being married to an artist?
He loves to help you and knows exactly what you mean when you say, "I don't know..like home-ie like...southern chic and stuff.."

Working super closely with my husband, Mr. Bill Main, day and night (sometimes) we brainstormed ways we could go...that was indeed the hardest part. I had about 10 completely different roads we could have traveled down and none of them had anything to do with each other. That's why it's taken months and months and months to have this process finalized.

My wonderfully sweet husband (who knows me better than anyone in the whole wide world) took in to account all my 1,097,365 ideas I had and was able to artfully create what we have now. And by golly...I'm in love.

Introducing our new look! What do you all think?!!?!? You'll find over the next few weeks that our Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Etsy will be changing a tad too in how they look. Which I'm also stoked to show you all! Our wonderful blog we call home will also be continuing to change little by little until we think we've got it just right! Don't worry, I'll continue to blog and it will be up for you all to visit. I kind of like that- sharing our renovation process with you all. :) Did that just make us best friends?? I think so!

Here's a few other neat things my husband created:
This here is our brand new Etsy banner! It made our little shop just absolutely wonderful, don't you think???


We get A LOT of custom orders at our Etsy shop. I mean...A LOT. So, we definitely also needed to have something to depict that those orders being listed were indeed custom orders being purchased by customers.


I just love this thing! Our new Etsy icon :)


You'll find this new Facebook icon on the upper right hand side of our blog!


:D


Here you'll find some of our newest items available on our Etsy for you to purchase if you're so inclined.


You really should follow...


Seriously...why not??


Everyone loves a good Tweet.

We also created some new paper goods to be included in each Etsy order that goes out. We've been doing this for a while, but again when a make-over is being done..everything gets to join in!

Business cards and "thank you" notes to go in each Etsy package we ship out!


Also to come: a really nice background (haven't decided exactly what I'm after yet), jam labels, stickers (maybe..) and STAMPS!! Oh no you di'int!! OH YES I DID GURL!!

So...what do you think?!!?!?!? I'd love to hear your feedback!
