Is it August yet?! Look at this ridiculously adorable swaddle and beanie set. Remember Ashes Ashes Design from my Newborn Favorites post? Well I am here to share with y’all Becky from Ashes Ashes Design and a little more info about her shop and products. I first came across Ashes Ashes Design when on Etsy. I was drawn to her unique prints and threads.
The “hello, i’m new here” hat and swaddle set which is a print She designed just for the shop and is her biggest seller! But she also offers many other creative print designs and products. Headbands, tanks, leggings and more!
Let’s Becky and Ashes Ashes Design!
• My name is Becky Smith. I’ve been married to my super cute husband, Jeff, for almost 9 years. We have a 4 year old (Asher) and 2 year old (Isla). I work part time at an investment company and spend the rest of my time at home with my kiddos and creating goodies for my shop! I opened Ashes Ashes Design (named after my son Asher) in January 2014 and pretty much expected my mom and a few friends to purchase my items, and have been so shocked and overwhelmed with the response I’ve received over the last year and a half!
I’ve always been a creator and crafter and love photography and graphic design. After having my first baby, all of my creations turned baby oriented. I made mobiles, artwork for the nursery, blankets, headbands, and then started trying out clothing. My friends started encouraging me to sell my creations, and here I am! I love the whole shop process, from shopping for fabric, to sewing and photographing products.
It took me months to build up the courage to actually open my shop. I worked on products, took photos, created a logo, and had everything ready to go…it was just putting myself out there for all to see that felt so scary. Once I got over that hump and actually opened the shop, it was amazing how much encouragement I received. You’ll never know what could happen if you don’t go for it.
The first notification I received on Etsy letting me know that I had sold one of my items was a big moment. AND it was even more exciting when I realized it wasn’t from one of my best friends or mom! LOL! It’s also been pretty amazing having my items sold in stores. That’s always been a dream of mine. •
