Are you so excited to know what my Big news is?
Can you hardly contain yourself?
Are you on the edge of your seat????
And my News is......
When I first started my business I was Cupcake Est.1981 and I made cute, girly, glam things...that EVERYONE else made too. It was super cute stuff but wasn't really me and I wasn't profit from it. I was so depressed by the lack of sales, bad shows, and was about to hang up my crafting hat for good.
Well, one day I started just crafting for me...for fun again and a light just clicked in my head.
"Why aren't you making the things that make you smile and that you really like?!"
So, After ready SO many marketing and Etsy blogs I decided to give it one more go. The first thing I decided to do was "Build a Brand"..things that spoke my direction. I wanted my things to say Pretty, Sweet, Vintage, colorful,retro, sassy with a sprinkle of glamour. All the things that I consider to be me and my style. My inspiration was a picture of my amazingly beautiful mother. When I was a kid we lived in a really small town in Ohio and my Mom was unlike any other Mom. She ALWAYS and I mean always made sure to walk out the door with her big curled hair, her big colorful earrings, a over sized blouse with a pair of skintight leggings.
I thought she was the coolest ever.
I look at this picture every day when I work and create. It makes me smile and reminds me to be me and just create.
Long story made short. I became Kinley Lane Designs. A boutique for girls of all ages that like a little something different at an affordable price. It will be all things fashion, accessories, art and more. With a sweet, pretty, colorful, vintage and a little sassy feel.
