    I like Option 2 or 4

    Option 4- you look really pretty, option 2 is bright and cheerful and it reminds me of summer (not sure why!)
    It feels “clean”

    I say Option 2!

    I would like option 1 but your face is fuzzy. May have been what you were going for but I say- if you have a pretty face- show it!

    I absolutely love that heart with the blue flower in it. I think it is small enough and simple enough to work really well, so I vote for #2. Great work Tera!

    I think #1 is cute with the heart, but I vote for #4 because I think it’s better for connecting to you. That’s a great smile you have:)

    This is a wonderful idea, I love it! I vote for option number 4! Tweeting now.

    Option 1 is my vote. It’s really cute and we still get to see your face and it ties in with your old avatar so there’s some continuity.

    Hhmm…honestly honestly I LOVE your current avatar. It made me click on your shop, just based on the image…not knowing what you were selling.
    But I know how it is when you feel you need a change…and in that case…I’d go for #2 followed by #4.
    I love #2…but as you do more than felt stuff…maybe #4 is less restricting.
    And it’s a pretty, happy one 🙂

    I think I like #3 the best, but I also like #1 because it keeps your brand!

    I love #4! I would go with that one. #2 would be my second choice. 🙂

    Choices choices! I like them all, I love option 2! But I also think its cool to have your face on your avatar, so my next choice and the one I think I have to go with is option 1, its fun, it shows your face AND the cute heart and your creative hands! My third choice would then be option 3, also because its fun, different, and it matches the idea that creativity is messy. There, I managed to choose almost all of them didnt I 🙂

    I like option #2. It is similar to your current avatar, which I really like and already identify with.

    Tee-hee…. this is almost like having my own little “Final Four”. Maybe I should have put them in bracket form? 😀

    I like Option 2 best, but in keeping with the “is messy” theme — and since you implied the photos will be redone — I’d incorporate some messiness into the background. Sharp focus on the hands/heart, soft focus on the messy. I was going to say like the background in Option 3 but that hasn’t really reached the stage of messy yet.

    Thanks, Laura, for steering me here. The prize is yours if my comment is chosen. :o)

    I vote #1!

    Also, I fb’ed & tweeted for ya’.

    I have to go with #1 because I have always loved your avatar, I identify it with your brand number one is a fresh update to your brand as opposed to totally starting over.
    I love the photo in number 2 but as a photographer I see that pose with the hands in heart so much that I dont think it is as unique as you:)
    PS you look adorable in all od them!

    #4-love your smile, love that we can see your lovely face! ❤

    I would vote for #1 if your face was more in focus like #3.

    Yer purdy.

    I seriously love option number 2 for an avatar. It’s graphic, eyecatching, and will look great even as tiny as the Etsy avatars are. It makes me want to click on it.

    PS – are you the cutest person ever or what? #3 totally made me smile.

    I loved them all but I think I need to go with #1. It has you in it and also a heart.


  31. Pamela Petry

    I would say #1 as it’s close to what you have. I like the idea of not your total face, it is nice to finally see you though. I believe the avatar should reflect your store not who you are. This is a nice mixture though and I haven’t seen anything like it.

    It just shows your essence & it’s different 🙂
    I really liked them all to be honest & I almost chose #1 or 2 but #4 like screams “up close and personal!” I see your personality in it!

    (in my best sports announcer voice) It’s a horserace ladies and gentlemen! #1 and #2 are neck in neck coming around the second turn, with #4 following closely behind – waiting to make a move. #3 is lagging back at the starting gate, eating the decorative bushes on the inside rail….

    As your mother, I like #1 best otherwise #2 is great!

    I like Option 1. It shows you (but still not super sharp that might be weird if you want to have some privacy) and it keeps the similar style of avatar that you currently use. If you had just started the blog, Twitter, Facebook and Etsy stuff I would say not to worry about that but since that heart on the hands is what I think of you, it might be a good idea to keep it. Option 1 I think is a good way to update it, show you and your store name, and keep the avatar that people already recognize.

    oh and I am following you on Facebook and Twitter. Will post this on my Facebook page also.

    All four are great but my favorite is #1. I will also share this on FB and Twitter.

    Hi Tera!! I love Picture #2. 🙂

    I’m a fan on Facebook and Twitter and I really really want one of those terrarium necklaces. That guarantees me one, right? LOL, JK!

    you’re so pretty that I adore #4, but I think 2 is a great inbetween from your old avatar to a new one. Ether one I think would be perfect ❤

    Congrats to Molly for winning the terrarium necklace!

    It looks like it was a close vote, with picture #1 just edging out picture #2. I will be working on retaking and touching up some of the details on photo #1 this week. I will “unvail” the new avatar by this weekend (hopefully).

    Thanks to all that participated!
