Seven Years of Wit & Whistle!

Oh my gosh, today is Wit & Whistle’s seventh birthday! It has been such a privilege to run my own business for so long. Thanks a million for supporting my efforts and helping make it possible. This year has been one of the hardest as I’ve struggled to balance motherhood and business, and I’m so grateful you’ve stuck with me through it all!

Next year I might need a bigger cupcake…

Progress

There’s not much to report around here, but I’m making slow, steady progress on those new pins. Here’s a little peek!

Pin Decisions

Holy cow! After less than a month I’m nearly sold out of my uterus pins. Thank you to everyone who ordered! Now I’m creating a whole line of enamel pins. Here’s a little sketchbook process…

Some of these concecepts haven’t made it to their final forms yet, but a bunch have! I’m trying to decide which 4 or 5 of the pin designs below to add to the shop first. Which are your favorites? I want them all!

Enamel Pins?!!

At some point during maternity leave my one-handed internet browsing led me to Gimme Flair. I was overcome by the desperate need to buy all the enamel pins, but somehow I refrained and redirected my energy into making my own.

I have a buttload of ideas for enamel pins, but I’m starting with just one to test the waters. I mean, I don’t want to fill my shelves with a zillion pins if nobody else wants them. I only have one jean jacket to fill after all. If my “lady power” uterus pin is a winner, you can expect to see a lot more Wit & Whistle pins in the near future!
