It's been a week of migration, uploading photos, finding links, and shanghaiing my friends into being test subjects but at last: my account is now verified with my host, Wix! This means I can start taking payments and move right along.
I'm still working on how to best manage the Limited Edition / Signed Copies of patterns. This applies to Hannah Alexander, Callupish/Reimena's Four Owls, EuclidsTriangle's Shards of Fire, and LittlePaperForest's Candy Cane Queen. For future artists that I work with I won't be accepting the limited edition model, it just takes far too much work and management on my end to keep everything flowing smoothly.
I still need to figure out just how useful the Wix App will be on the customer end. On my end it makes perfect sense! I get alerted when someone messages me or a sale is made. Exactly what I want! From the customer side though...? We'll be figuring out things together, for sure.
The next step is to get Hannah, Reimena, Euclid, and Paper's patterns listed here! My Etsy Shop will remain open but in a bare bones capacity. Some listings will be renewed manually, such as the custom photo to pattern, based on my own availability. Others will be automatic and only renew as long as people buy them before they expire at which point I will make the call to renew them on Etsy again or make them exclusive to Make it Pink. Most things are going to be exclusive here.
I'm really looking forward to this new step in my artistic growth. Opening the new site is scary but really exciting. Absolutely could not have done this without the push from Etsy's policy changes (hahah) but especially not without the support from all of you. Thank you so much for allowing my artistry to grow.
