I'm stuck, and I need YOUR help

I'm kind of stuck at the moment. I posted a thread on Etsy asking for criticism on my shop and the majority of the people that answered said that I need to give more style options. I can agree with that because I guess that I do only make graphics that I would like, and some people may not like what I like. But I'm still a little stuck because how am I supposed to know what others like? Thats where YOU come in! Comment this post and tell me what YOU like!

Within the last 2 day I have created two banner + avatar sets that arent "me". I personally wouldnt use them, so I guess I just want to see if others like them. The views have been about the same as my other sets, so I'm guessing that the designs cant be that bad.

Well, I'm gonna go check out some Etsy chats! Ill post again tomorrow! =)

I like your designs ;)

I guess variety is a good thing though, so keep coming up with new designs when you can :)

variety is great -- it appeals to more people. I think having a custom listing all the time is great. Someone could see your shop and like your work -- but be looking for something a little different.

I like both of the new ones. Especially the chocolate and powder blue one. I've always been a fan of that color combination. Chocolate and pink are good too.

Thanks so much! =)

I LOVE the powder blue one! Not only will it be good for your shop to try new things but good for your own skills, but I really think all your graphics are cute, good work :)

Consider checking out major design and decorating blogs (such as decor8) and magazines for current style trends, patterns, color combos, etc. and create a few from that. I am always designing things I wouldn't use, however, that is not to be confused with designing things I don't like. Clients will constantly look to you for new trends.

I second what cathe said. Find designs out there that you really like and inspire you. Design with those in mind.

I went and checked out your shop and your style is very nice, but all the same tone. Maybe you can take one of those and use bright bold, colors.
