Nimble Toad banner design part I

My brother's lady companion has begun a crafting collective with several other artsy types - they have a blog and a newborn Etsy shop. What they do not have is a logo, which I'm excited to take a crack at. Somewhere along the line I was shanghaied into designing banners for the aforementioned sites as well, which pleases me because I get to work in Illustrator. Thus far I have the rough ink sketches I auditioned with, and a rudimentary Illustrator mockup of the Etsy banner, both seen below:

I will unnecessarily point out that the name is a pun: the little toad is knitting with his toes. He's Nimble-"Toed." I think this is delightful.
