Grand Opening Prep // Mobile Love

I've been working hard perfecting (or at least trying to) my mobiles and assembly, getting business cards, photographing (mediocre, I must admit), and so much more! I'm glad to finally say that I feel that I am just about ready to officially open up shop! But I'm not quite there yet.

In the mean time I wanted to show a few sneak peeks at what I've been doing, I apologize for the many cell phone quality shots, and show off some seriously amazing mobiles that inspired me to go through with my own business!

Without further adieu...

I opened up shop, Tumbleweeds & Snowflakes, and wrote a bit under the About tab there!

My home office space, thanks to IKEA! By the way, I'm loving my Rue Rococo prints on the wall.

How awesome are my business cards!? Pretty Paper Party custom made them!

Hand stamping some thank you cards for orders

Yes, that's right, I have opened my Etsy shop, feel free to check it out here! I do have a few one-of-a-kind items for sale while I get things up for the grand opening.

And now for some amazing mobiles (and some other great inspirations) made by some amazing people (in no particular order)!!

1. Baby Jives

Seriously, how amazing is this mobile? She's always coming up with new and amazing ideas. My mind is blown! How do you make such gorgeous creations and get them to hang? I'm amazed.

2. The Alison Show

Leather mermaids. How cool right? I loved her original triangle mobiles, but I'm head over heels for her mermaid mobiles! I'm just a sucker for mermaids.

3.  Candy Kirby Designs

This woman, has twin girls and a son under a year old. She inspires me! She makes the cutest leggings and is now expanding her shop to include everything from skirts to crib sheets. If a mother of three can run a successful business, I'm convinced I can too!

5. Freshly Picked

To think, these amazingly successful moccs started out with a mom trying to find a pair of shoes that not only looked and felt great on her kid's feet, but also stayed on. I can honestly say, that these are my favorite pair of shoes to put on my daughter and totally worth the splurge!

6. Gussy Sews

 New mommy to a beautiful little boy, and she is expanding her shop to include totes/diaper bags! Not only are these cute, but they're really affordable!

A lot of these businesses are run by moms. Whether they have one kid, young kids, older kids, etc. they're all in a different place with their businesses and I am completely inspired by their hard work and dedication to their business! If these moms can work from home with kids running around, I know I can too!

Thank you ladies for inspiring me! I'm so looking forward to officially opening up my own business and I hope that one day I'll be as successful as you all are!

Stay tuned for an update of the Tumbleweeds & Snowflakes grand opening!!

Big Changes

I'm going to be making some big changes on the blog very soon! I've decided to start my own business from home making handmade and unique mobiles. Coincidentally, I'm calling it Tumbleweeds & Snowflakes.

Instead of writing about my family. moving, etc., I will just be writing about DIY ideas, recipes, and my business. I would really love and appreciate your support through these changes, especially as I get my business up and running.

I will be posting some sneak peeks of a few mobiles I'll be selling once I get some pictures of them. I will also be opening an Etsy shop soon. Until then please follow Tumbleweeds & Snowflakes for updates, sneak peeks, and possibly a giveaway!
