Tell us a little about you . . .

I’m a newlywed with a passion for creating things. I’ve always been artistic, dabbling in art/drawing classes in college, but it wasn’t until about a year ago that I seriously picked up a paint brush. I was nesting, naturally, in our new house when I thought that I could go spend hundreds of dollars on dressing up my walls with cheap artwork, or I could create my own. So that’s what I did. And let me tell you I had fun!

My friends saw my artwork and it evolved from there. It wasn’t until I kept getting requests from friends who started having babies that I realized that there was a real demand for moms to decorate their nurseries or kids rooms with adorable custom art. Thus, Adore Design Studio was born.

What is your business and where can we find it?

My business is called Adore Design Studio and you can find my daily musings and purchasing information on my blog: adoredesignstudio.blogspot.com

Is it mom-owned, invented, created . . .?

I created this little design shop for moms who want adorable personalized art that is also affordable. Although I don’t have any children of my own yet, you can bet I’m going to make them the cutest paintings ever!

A little about your entrepreneur journey so far?

It’s been an adventure! I didn’t get in on the whole blog community thing until about 6 months ago, when I seriously thought about starting my little company. It’s amazing how you can “meet” new people and form friendships that are completely virtual. And I’m so thankful for the friendships I’ve found so far! They’ve really helped introduce my product to the world. I’m not saying it’s easy though, I’m still slowly learning the ropes on how to network and collaborate with other fellow bloggers! I think the best part of being an entrepreneur is seeing your idea or concept come to fruition and then not knowing where it will take you!

Where else can people find you?

My parents had a silhouette done of my family for a Christmas card when I was 13 (I am much older now). I'd love to have one done of my husband and I or to give it as a gift to a sibling (there are 7 of us). It is just such a beautiful and delicate art form.

I simply adore silhouettes! This is a great giveaway because Adore Design Studio has some beautiful sample work up. I'd love to win!

I remember in Kindergarten we did shadow pictures of our faces like this and on parent night, your parents try to find yours. My dad, who is no longer with us (tears) picked out my silhouette right away. They did this for my first daughter's preschool class (she went to the same preschool as me!) but I would love to have my littlest Chubby-huggy's done. She has quite a silhouette, I'll tell you!
