I am excited to announce that my little Etsy shop, New Moon Paper Goods will be participating in the @fashionmamas MAMA MARKET on Saturday, May 6 from 10am to 4pm at @platform_la! The event will feature more than 30 mother-owned brands, ranging from home decor to womenswear to wellness. It’s going to be a great day to do some Mother’s Day gift shopping for mamas, by mamas. #FMMamaMarket is free and open to the public, so save the date!Please come by and say Hello!!
Today I have stepped into the #pincommunity ! It was always something I wanted to be a part of but never thought I could. Until today.
I had designed these pins a while ago and in my head I had been talking myself out of it.”not good enough” “why waste your time?” “who is gonna buy it?” BUT THEN I told myself to shush and JUST DO IT! Also because I was just tired of working for other people and not getting the chance to be creative. I needed an outlet and something to work towards.
It all started with me watching the Netflix series, THE OA and binge watching and then going onto ETSY to search for some OA pins to add to my mini collection. Well… There wasn’t anything. Really, there was nothing. (currently 3/10/17 There are some art/sketches and a pillow case) Still not much and nothing I could wear out. I sketched out Prarie doing one of the five movements and sent it out along with 4 other designs that I asked my friends on Instagram to vote for.
As soon as I received my pins I went out to take photos (might not be the best because the sun was going down and my baby was still asleep!LOL) I had a feeling I wouldn’t get much time to shoot anyways so I went along with it and posted it up on my ETSY site the next day.
Within a day I got an order. The next day I got two pin orders. Today I had my studio sample sale in DTLA and I had 7 transactions and 5 were just PINS!! I might just turn out to be the PIN lady and not the PAPER lady I was dreaming of! LOL
Either way, I am super excited about how it came out (and have a few more idea’s in the works) and wanted to share them with you! These went up three days ago. Please take a peek and let me know what you think! Would really love to hear from you.
If you get a chance, stop by my ETSY shop and give it some love! Pin it, like it, save it!
