I've been talking about this for what feels like over a year. Well, probably since I first started Hey Love Designs but more seriously once I decided that I really do love to design.

Opening an online store.

For a year I told myself I would open a shop. But I just wasn't ready to get things up and running. I hadn't decided on what e-commerce site to use. I couldn't figure out exactly what it was that I wanted to sell.

Here's a confession, I actually opened an Etsy, Big Cartel,and a Storenvy shop to figure my way around things. In fact, I sneaked a link to shop into the header but never really announced it. I actually have already made a couple of sales. Once I got the hang of the sites and found which avenue worked best for me, I put a lot of time working on product listings, creating the images for shoppers to preview, worked on pricing and descriptions, and gave the shop a makeover.

I'm ready. Let's go!

I am so proud to finally debut the Hey Love Designs online shop on Storenvy. Scoot on over there to see the designs that are currently available for purchase - a few of them might look familiar. All items are made to order and at the moment the items pertain to mostly invitations with a few party favors and stationery. And that's only the beginning.

So here goes. I'm officially diving into e-commerce. Full custom designs will still be available through the Contact Form but if you see something you like on Storenvy, go ahead and purchase.

To celebrate the grand opening of my online store, use coupon code OMGSQUEE (typical, right?) to save 20% off your entire order. This promotion is good through July 31, 2012. This applies only to items listed on the online shop and does not work towards custom orders.

Here are some of my favorites:
