By the way, Happy Spring!
As you may have noticed, it's been update-o-rama here at French Kiss. So, what's with all the changes?
I'm going into my 4th year of creating digital collections. It was time to get a global view of the shop and products, and do some spring cleaning.
As you may have noticed, French Kiss is sporting a new look. I'll save the specifics for another post, but I wanted a design that was clean and standardized. By changing the product image format to square, it gives me more room to clearly put the collection name and type and also gives me more room for a more attractive image.
Every week, I've been going through a collection category and cleaning up the graphics, looking at the shop and download names to see if cohesion is needed and at the same time, looking over the collections. In some cases, I'll decide to add a few items, in others I may find that I've gained a few tricks over the years to give an item a little more love. I send out product update emails to those who already have the collection, but unfortunately, I can't add a note along with the automated emails. I will post changes here on the shop blog and I've started a change log where you can check if you have questions.
I've been joking with my husband that I'm going into French Kiss 2.0.
I'll be examining just about every aspect of my business down to my payment gateway and digital delivery system and looking for improvements.
This is enormously time-consuming, so I'm sorry that I haven't had much time for tutorials or features lately. My plan is that once I have the shop in order and my production standardized, I'll be looking for an assistant to take over the non-creative parts of production which will free me to do more tutorials, and community involvement. Plus, I'll be able to get products out faster! I have a huge backlog of products nearly done and in progress.
