nos·tal·gia – a wistful desire to return in thought or in fact to a former time in one’s life, to one’s home or homeland, or to one’s family and friends; a sentimental yearning for the happiness of a former place or time.
While browsing through Etsy, I came come across such awe inspiring and memory invoking Nostalgic Graphic Tees at Elizabeth Horton Design. Many of the designs featured include those such as blowing bubbles, fishing in a pond, picking a flower, playing on a see saw, riding a bicycle and more, all which are memories I hold dear and near to my own heart. It brings me great satisfaction to know that I can share these wonderful designs with my own daughter.
These tees as well as many other apparel items available such as rompers, long sleeved shirts, and infant sleeping gowns are beautifully presented in a number of designs and available in many rich colors for children ages toddler through size twelve. I was sent a beautiful Girls Short Sleeved Ballerina Graphic Tee to review for my daughter Melody!
This shirt is by far one of my daughter’s favorites and mine too! I can’t get over how cute the wavy edges on the sleeves and the bottom of the shirt are! Melody loves to dance and twirl just like the girl printed upon the shirt and often talks to me about it throughout the day. This shirt is a 100% cotton Rabbit Skins tee and can hold up to hours and hours of play not to mention repeat washings.
I enjoyed getting to know Elizabeth and wanted to give my readers a chance to learn more about her too! Enjoy the Etsy meet a great questions and answers below!
1.Why did you decide to start doing this on Etsy and how long have you been? I like the flexibility that Etsy provides. Being able to work on creative projects, manage my own shop, and raise my children at the same time is ideal, and would only be possible through an online sales vehicle. I have been selling on Etsy for about 8 months.
2. What do you enjoy the most when creating your products?
I love being able to use my graphic design background to create something that will be worn and loved by someone else. Its fun to see children get excited about wearing my tees. I also enjoy having the opportunity to give back by donating proceeds from my fisherman design to a cancer charity.
3. Apart from creating things, what do you do?
I own a commercial graphic design firm, which is home based, and spend most of my time caring for my 2 young daughters. I also enjoy cooking and spending time outdoors.
4. What inspires you?
5.In five years you’d like to be…?
Still able to earn a living doing creative things!
