Not So Terrible Two's

Let's celebrate, Lollipop Couture's Etsy shop is turning TWO!!! 🎉
Wow, two years already! I remember all the mix emotions; afraid, nervous, and excited about opening my Etsy shop. I just felt like it was time to take that leap of faith, I had been doing custom designs for several years and I had a one year old daughter. Who inspired me to continue to chase after my dreams. I started designing for her and after receiving many compliments I decided the shop would be exclusively babies, toddler, and girls clothing and accessories. It hasn't been easy, between being a mother, wife, and business owner I have learned so much.
I am so humbled to be designing for your little darlings, thank you for supporting my handmade shop. Thank you for following this crazy dream of mine! Cheers to the NOT SO TERRIBLE TWO'S!
