The Shop is Open Again!

YAY!!! Maternity leave has been wonderful, but it’s time to open Pink Loves Brown again!

Pink Loves Brown

Thank you for your patience. Besides caring for a newborn during my time off and also keeping up with the blog here (obviously), I’ve been furiously working away behind the scenes on my business. I switched the entire site over to a new web host, designed some great new stationery, researched and implemented greener production methods, photographed the new items, updated my wholesale order forms (new stores are always welcome, by the way), and entered everything into the site. It’s been a lot of work, but I’m so glad that the shop is up and running again!

Here’s a little glimpse of the new stationery

And here are the paper suitcases, now available in six yummy colors.

Head on over to Pink Loves Brown and check out all of the new goodies, and of course the old favorites too! And you can enter “yippee” at checkout to save 20% on your order. Thanks again for all of your support. I can’t wait to start sending pretty packages out from the shop again!

* The discount is valid through midnight October 25, and cannot be combined with any other offer.

    Now that your shop is back open…you should make and sell the badge and buttons for each month. I love the ones you made for your daughter and I would love to buy a set if you decide to sell them!

    What is that silver metal divider you have your stationery displayed in? And where did you get it – it would be the most perfect mail/desk organizer!

    I’m so glad you’re back! I am a huge fan of your stationary. I also love the ‘I love you’ greeting card! It is just so precious. I think I might have to buy one to give to hubby on our anniversary. :)
