Selling things online can feel pretty impersonal sometimes. You don't get to hear people react and get excited about their purchase, you just get the details of the order, a name and an address. Don't get me wrong, I love that my handmade creations go out to their place in the world to be worn and loved, and given as gifts. I simply love it even more when I see with my own eyes that they've made the recipient happy.
My heart has been filled with joy a lot recently as beautiful ladies I do and don't know are spotted wearing my accessories. Here are some of my favs. First up is the lovely Liz of Srslyliz.com. She looks fabulous from head to toe and is wearing a Raspberry Lace Watch Necklace in the new antiqued brass finish. Here's the beautiful Ashley of Plumeria Avenue wearing some Vivi Dot earrings in one of my favorite prints, Blue Blossoms.Now let's head over to Where My Heart Resides to see what Ashlee is up to. Ashlee was so lovely to feature my shop in her 'Shop Love' post early last month. I sent her a Swings Polaroid Necklace as a thank you for her sweet post and she instantly put it to good use with this adorable outfit. Yet another Ashley who blogs over at That is All purchased a Tea Time Ring for a friend's birthday. It couldn't have been a better fit for how they celebrated - it matched their whole party in both theme and color scheme! So cute!
If you have any photos of yourself enjoying your Vivi Dot purchases pretty please don't hesitate to share them. You can email them to me or share them on the Vivi Dot facebook page.
Caroline of Woodnote Photography recently placed an order and left a sweet little note in the 'notes' section at checkout. It made my day and reminded me to do the same when i shop handmade. I like to think that my site and packaging and everything that goes into Vivi Dot is very professional, just like big time retailers, but at the end of the day I'm simply one person making everything with love as it's ordered just for you.
