Give me avatar help!

22 Nov

Howdy all! I’ve been absent for a while. Just haven’t had much to say, and isn’t it nice to have a blog where I don’t have to force myself to post daily?? (I’ve done a number of blogs for work before. It can get frustrating to force a post.)

Should this be my avatar? I love how bright and fun it is, and it's certainly eye-catching. However, it's purely vintage. I bought it as is, though I did clean it up and fix a few things.

Yesterday and today, I worked an indy craft fair at a local bookshop. For as few people as showed up, I’m quite pleased with how I did. I can only imagine how things would have gone had more people actually known about the fair!

I sold a few pieces: one long, vintage necklace with purple dangles from it; a multi-strand silver necklace with a long dagger-shaped pendant; a handful of bracelets and necklaces from a bucket I marked “bargain bin,” full of jewelry I tried to sell at my first craft fair last year at prices waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay higher than a sane person would have marked them (this weekend, they were $5 each or three for $12 — much better); and a few other things, including those fabulous yellow dangle earrings found in my avatar at Jaclyn1423.

It’s been a good avatar. I’ve enjoyed working with it; however, I think it’s time we part ways. It’s bright and eye-catching and a good representation of my shop, though I would prefer that my avatar be an item currently for sale, should someone see it and want it.

So this is where you come in; what item at Jaclyn1423 should be my avatar?  It needs to be something large and bold enough to stand out at only 1-by-1 inches, and it needs to be something that does a good job of showing the kind of goodies I have at my shop.

Or maybe this should be my avatar? Now that those yellow earrings are gone, it has the most hearts on my shop, and a lot of people stopped to admire it at the craft fair.

The pics I included here are ones I think might be able to work. Do you like them? Or is there something else you’d like to see? Comment with the link, and let me know what you think!

    I think for the pending holiday season, you should use these:

    And, then, the crayon colored baubles after that.

I'd love to hear what you think!
