So I decided to go with the creative streak.
I apologize if you've stopped by my shop over these past few weeks, perhaps months, and witnessed en masse a consistent change in shop banner. It drove me mad to not have a banner that fit the EmeraldCut mood and overall aesthetic, so like clockwork, I continued sorting through my photos until I found one (or two or twelve) that I believed would make a suitable shop banner. It's been an ongoing process--designing, editing, and trying out different shop headers--but a dozen or so designs later, I am finally content with the result. If you've missed the shop header show, below is a recap of a few designs:
And yes, after you design a few, your eyes do cross.

The final banner:
Incorporates an earthy, olive-green peridot, my favorite stone; a book page; my shop name in a unique, readable font.

In celebration of this recent shop happy...
