Pippa & Pearl

Stacelynn was a dream to work with, she helped me every step of the way. Not only did she provide me with detailed instructions on how to update my own website but took time to answer all of my questions and explain to me what I was doing wrong. This is crucial when learning something new, not just how to fix the problem but to understand how and why something won't work. She was also great about answering me rather quickly... despite being in different countries. She has great knowledge in the e-commerce industry, in which I valued all of her advice and input regarding the navigation and over-all look of the website. I absolutely loved working with her and will definitely be recommending her to anyone looking for an e-commerce shopify store.

Working with Stacelynn to relaunch my online store was one of the most pleasurable experiences I've had as a business owner. She is extremely knowledgable and made the entire process stress-free.

Karma Collective

Stacelynn is wonderful! From the beginning of the project until the end, she was great to work with. She is quick to respond, and is clear with her communication as well as very detailed. She was able to work through the project very quickly, and she was able to provide me with sound advice on what would and would not work for my site. She knew exactly what I was looking for and she nailed it! Any changes that I wanted as well as customization she was able to do as well. For other things that I wanted my site to do, that she might not have had experience doing before, she was able to figure it out and provide me with options on how I could incorporate those elements. I am very happy with her customer service and attention to detail. I am beyond happy with the end result, and she certainly exceeded my expectations.


Great experience all around. Incredibly knowledgable. Easy to work with, responsive and efficient.

Little Arrow

Stacelynn from The Idea Lounge was a joy to work with. Due to the nature of my industry, my site design was very complex. Not only was she patient with me and my ideas, she continually went above and beyond to problem solve and help find solutions. She is mega talented to boot, a coding master and knows Shopify inside and out. She was there for me every step of the way, even up until my launch date. Seriously, I can't say enough positive things about her. I will definitely hire her again for future projects.


A smart, thoughtful, design-savvy problem solver, Stacelynn went so far above and beyond on every detail of designing and building our website, we were blown away. Forever grateful we found the Idea Lounge, we can't recommend her work highly enough!

I am so impressed with Idea Lounge and the quick service she has provided. Stacelynn is wonderful to work with - I really love the design layout she has created for my store. Excellent service by immediately replying to questions, and a great help with trouble shooting how to input stock with the CSV. formatting.

When the times comes for me to build another store or website, I will be contacting Stacelynn for all my future projects.


Working with Stacelynn at the Idea Lounge was, and continues to be, a great experience! Stacelynn took our ideas and turned them into a website of which we can be very proud. We particularly appreciated her suggestions as we navigated unknown territory and in the process we learned so much. Her design skills, attention to detail, and ability to communicate in a way that we could understand made the whole process so easy and enjoyable. Perhaps, most importantly, she was always accessible if we had questions, and we had quite a few! We would definitely recommend her work without hesitation!

Red Moon Designs

Stacelynn, owner of the Idea Lounge has made 3 shopify web-sites for me over the years.
The first one she built, took my e-commerce site and business to a more professional level and my sales tripled within months.
Once I established that I was going to need a second one there was no question that I would have her do it for me!
Stacelynn is professional and knows shopify inside and out!
