Happy 2nd Anniversary to Islabands!

Me at my first craft fair! Isla sporting her new hat and Eric wearing his Islabands bow tie!
I can hardly believe it, I think it just snuck up on me — today is the TWO YEAR ANNIVERSARY of ISLABANDS!!

I remember the night my shop opened on Etsy; it wasn’t supposed to. I figured I’d open in a week after devoting a little time each day, but I got so excited and inspired, I just kept working for hours after Isla went to bed. I was so excited to just get started already.

I’m so proud of what I’ve accomplished this past year with the help and support from family and friends. It makes me SO happy that I can be creative while staying home to take care of my daughter.

I’m so creative because my parents let me sit on our dining room table to draw. Thanks, mom and dad!
This year I created some new styles in the Islabands Etsy Shop, had a booth at my very first craft fair (!) in Brooklyn, ran my first giveaway, sold to my first retail store. started my own blog, and I have crocheted items I never thought I’d figure out how to make!

THANK YOU for your support, orders, likes, shares, favoriting my shop and reading my blog!!

I look forward to learning and growing even more this next year; let’s see what’s in store for me.

To my biggest supporters and team members, Eric + of course Isla, I love you!!
