Small Shop Saturday is today. All this week we’ve been highlighting some great small shops run my moms, all of whom call Sudbury, Ontario home. We started by introducing you to Peach Bug, followed by the Little Pear Boutique. But as the week winds down, I figured it only be appropriate that I feature my own shop!
As you probably know, I started my shop because I wanted to find cute clothes that fit both of my girls. So, I designed some t-shirts and made sure they were available in sizes from newborn to kids large. It sort of grew from there. I now include some great designs for moms and dads too!
I love the creative process of designing a shirt. First, I come up with the design, and honestly, I usually get on a role and come up with about a dozen all at the same time. Then I get started on making the designs on the computer. Actually, my husband makes a lot (and I mean most of them). I sketch them out on a scrap piece of paper and then he actually makes them appear on the computer screen. I help pick fonts and say “yah!” or “nay!” a lot but he does a lot of the graphics work. It’s a special gift that he has and together we make a great team.
Today, I’m launching my newest designs, all ready for the holidays! We’ve got something for everyone and honestly, who doesn’t love a cheeky graphic t-shirt? And there are a whole bunch of Christmas-themed t-shirts too. You can check out all our designs here!
And you have a chance to win a shirt! Tomorrow, November 25th, 2017 we’ll be celebrating Small Shop Saturday with an awesome giveaway with products from all the shops featured this week! Check us out on Instagram to enter and for all the contest rules!
