For years I’ve been the unofficial event planner amongst my friends and family. I’ve been coming up with fun party themes and cute ideas before there was Google and Pinterest. 😉 After years of having people tell me I should do this for a living I found some fresh inspiration while planning an 80s & 90s cartoon themed 30th birthday party for my brother. (I don’t know anyone else that’s had a party where you could find the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Ducktales and Beavis & Butthead. Ha!) Anyway, so I opened up an Etsy store and posted some festive stuff.
It’s hard to open a store and decide what to sell, I decided I’d start with cute Christmas labels, a few photo prints that’d make a great gift and that I’d specialize in customizing and personalizing items. (I think that may have something to do with the fact that my very uncommon Hispanic name meant I never got to own any cool stuff with my name (thanks a lot, Mom & Dad!), till now at least, now I can make it for myself!) Hopefully I’ll get the opportunity to add more items cause my goal is to get things selling quicker than fresh Krispy Kreme donuts.
My teeny little store with very few items gets lost in the world of Etsy so I decided I’d turn to another love of mine (writing) and start a blog where people could get to know me a little and feel bad for me & head on to my store to buy lots of stuff cause they love all my adorable (and personalized) stuff! It’s a win/win for all of us, I think. 😀 😀
Well that’s enough chatter for my first post, I’ll leave you with one of my favorite items from my store.
