All in ETSY SHOP

SHINE ON YOU CRAZY DIAMOND

Birthday parties are easily one of my favorite events ever! When Abby of Beijos Events asked if I could make some custom crowns for her kids shared birthday party I was so excited!! What do you get when you a combine a princess party and a rockstar party? Shine on You Crazy Diamond rock-princess party! Seriously, these kids are cooler than I could ever hope to be. Also Dave just told me the theme name is a Pink Floyd album name (my dad would be so embarrassed that I didn't know that already).

EASTER PLAYDATE

You guys, I got to work with the lovely ladies at Beijos Events down in California on their super cute Easter Playdate sponsored by Pottery Barn Kids. As an artist you always have those random milestones in life where you do something that you're just incredibly proud of. Those times where you get to step out of your comfort zone and do something new and have it just turn out awesome. This was one of those moments for me. And if you read my most recent post on the blog about the Etsy Shop and the process that has been lately, you know how hugely reaffirming that is on my journey as a shop owner. 

FLOWER CROWNS

I recently added these headbands to my shop and they have been such a huge hit! I have been loving making them too. I never really considered myself super girly up until this point in my life...I think finding out we were having a third boy freed me from feeling like I need to justify doing anything girly. I'm going to paint flowers, look at wedding magazines, make flower crowns, paint my nails pink, wear floral print, and just not care. There's enough testosterone in my life to balance it out I think.

THE ETSY SHOP UPDATE

We're back! I promised a little update on the shop when I got some time and so here I am - during nap time and in between house projects/Etsy orders trying to form coherent thoughts.

Some of you know already that closing the shop during the first trimester was a tough decision. We were finally gaining what felt like some really nice momentum, I was filling around two orders a day, and it was super fun to have such a great creative outlet (and the extra cash was nice too). Closing the shop sort of felt like a defeat.
