Party Packages are Here!

3 Mar

I’ve been working my little buns off on my “night off” for a while now.  Every Tuesday I get the night off to do something I want to do, which usually involves going to Starbucks with my laptop and working on new products for Cup of Tea.  It may only be 2 hours, but it’s 2 hours where I don’t have to think about trying to get my screaming baby to sleep, or entertain him, or feed him. It’s 2 hours where I can just be me and recharge with a nice hot chocolate.

So here is what I’ve been working on: party packages.  I saw some on Etsy and realized that’s something I needed to get into.  There is a great demand for cute matching decor for children’s birthday parties.  Parents want their child’s party to look nice, but also don’t want a lot of work and don’t want to spend a lot of money.  My party packages include everything you could want to make your party look fabulous, at a reasonable price.  They are easy to print at home and assemble with minimal supplies and zero experience or “craftyness”.  You can see my party packages in my Etsy shop.  http://www.etsy.com/shop/cupofteaphotocards

Mompreneurs: Jenna Bee’s Creations

14 Jan

I met Jenna through a website called The Bump.  A whole group of us got along so well, that we became fast Facebook friends and talk nearly every day.  She has a baby the same age as mine and she’s also a very creative individual.  Jenna creates adorable, handmade mobiles for nurseries.  I had the opportunity to talk with Jenna about her passion and how she got started in Jenna Bee’s Creations.

Why did you start your business?

August 2010 is when I really started trying to turn this hobby of mine into a business. I realized how much I loved working with paper. I made a mobile for my daughter’s nursery and just enjoyed it so much. So I opened a shop on Etsy hoping people would buy them and give me an excuse to keep making them!

What inspires you?

The natural color schemes that present themselves outside my window on a daily basis are what inspire me. In my opinion, nature has a way of coordinating the most attractive color schemes.

What is your favourite product?

Currently, my favorite product is the Rising Sun mobile. It hasn’t sold yet, so it’s still hanging in my workroom and I find myself staring at it often. The colors are just so beautiful!

Do you have advice for other mompreneurs?

My advice for other mompreneurs is to simply find something you love doing and that you’re good at and don’t give up on it!
