New Site, New Start

Posted by Amrita McIntyre on

Do you ever have those moments where you feel like you've impressed yourself? When you do something you have no knowledge in and seem to somehow create something you're happy with? This website has turned into my third child. I've been working on this switch for what feels like forever, day and night, and I'm pretty sure I've chatted with every Shopify chat agent out there. I've definitely met some quota for the amount of times you can get help within a day via Shopify chat. With all that being said, I'm FINALLY done and am loving my new site! I feel so proud of myself for making this move without giving up...because I definitely wanted to.

Next update: The reversible dress! It's been in production for quite sometime and I was hoping we'd have it by now, but there are a few updates that need to be made on them and I'm hoping to have them on the site in a couple of weeks at the most! I was so hoping to have them by now but I'm learning that nothing really goes the way you plan in business, in family, in just about everything!

The Have Fun Little One onesies, totes and blankies will be available to shop late next week! Be sure to follow along on Instagram or subscribe to our mailing list so you don't miss out! A little info on the new products. I decided to outsource the onesies and tote bags for a couple reasons:

1. I wanted to support other likeminded mama's! I was able to find U.S. based wholesalers who just so happen to be mama's!

2. Making basics like onesies can be extremely costly if I were to start from the bottom. I wanted to use that investment on creating more original designs vs. basics and I got super lucky by finding some really great organic and ethically manufactured pieces to offer to you!

While things haven't been going the way I've wanted them to go, they are moving, slowly, but surely. I told myself after the last experience I had, I'm going to give this one more go before I throw in the towel. Running even the smallest of small shops isn't cheap on a single income family, or any family really. When a hiccup happens, I go through a whole phase where I want to give up. I feel so guilty that I'm taking away from my family to support this dream of mine but then I get out of my funk and remind myself that I'm trying to move this dream further in hopes to better support my family. So, I'm trying my best to keep my faith in what I'm doing here and praying these dresses make it back to me in one piece and just as cute as can be!

  • You do realize that everything listed under “shop” says sold out. Are you going to have more stuff for sale??? Sounds like you did good if everything sold out. Wishing you good luck on your new start. I went to buy something from your old site once but couldn’t find where to do it. I clicked and clicked and nothing happened. I hope this one works better. Lots of luck to you. I know if anyone can do it your can.

  • I like that you are conscience of other mommas in your choices and manufacturing. I love that you are open and honest with the challenges of keeping your dream moving forward! Keep up the HARD and rewarding work!
