The Pink 'Dillo Review and Giveaway

 Etsy Feature:
The Pink 'Dillo
Interview with The Pink 'Dillo:

Tell us a bit about yourself.

My name is Angela and I’m 30 years old. I live in Austin, Texas with my boyfriend and our lovable little Chihuahua, Scar, who is basically our child. I love to cook, read, and anything chocolate, and have a huge passion for traveling, though I unfortunately don’t get the chance to do it as often as I’d like.

I have a business background and have a full-time job with a property management company, where I work in the business development department and manage a small staff. I’ve always had a creative side though, and spend a good majority of my spare time on my Etsy shop. I love the creative outlet that Etsy offers, but have also enjoyed learning all the business aspects of running your own shop as well – makes me feel like I’m really putting my Marketing and Business degree to good use!

How about the items in your shop....?
My shop is a mix of mostly paper goods – handmade cards, gift and favor tags, confetti, and embellishments, as well as bottle cap and decoupaged wooden magnets. I love color and patterns, and anything fun and girly. Many of the items in my shop are pretty versatile and could be used for a variety of occasions, but I also enjoy making and designing custom creations for baby showers, weddings, and parties. I’d love to add more themed party goods to my shop in the upcoming year, such as cupcake toppers, place cards, party favor tins, and more. I just recently had my first Etsyversary at the end of November, and finally reached my goal of having 100+ items listed – yay! My next goal is to end the year with at least 100 sales – only 10 more to go! 

What are your favorite items currently in your shop?
Well, it’s REALLY hard for me to pick just 1, so here are a few of my faves. :)
 I love how simply elegant these cards are.

 Just love how these turned out – very mod and fun!

~ Cupcakes and Sprinkles Set Of Magnets~
I have a HUGE sweet tooth, so that’s why I love these. :)

What or who inspires you and why?
 I have ideas running through my head all the time, more than I can keep track of or have time to make, unfortunately! I get inspiration from all sorts of things and at any random moment – while I’m at work, watching TV, even in my sleep! I don’t know how many times I’ve been in the middle of making one thing, when I suddenly get an idea for something else and start making that instead…I have several unfinished projects at any given moment, as a result. Mainly I just tend to create what makes me happy, and hope that it will be something that someone else can enjoy as well!

~My Review~
Since Christmas is right around the corner I was really excited to review a variety of their Christmas Gift Tags.
   These are the Gift Tags that were sent to me:
~Blue Snowflake Gift Tags~
These tags are wonderful and universal. I think that even if you had extra after Christmas you could use them on other gifts. I love the fact that these have an adhesive strip on the back of them so that you do not have to us any tape. If you love to wrap presents as I do, then you already know what a convenient feature that is!

~Gingerbread Men Gift Tags~
I was sent 2 of these gift tags but I wish I had more! They are obviously adorable and very well made. These gift tags feature a tie so that you can easily attach them to a gift bag.

~Merry Christmas Gift Tags~
Aren't these just lovely?! I love that these will match your red or your green wrapping paper or gift bags. As I said before...these are very well made too!

~Winter Wonderland Mini Tags~
These super cute mini gift tags are sparkly and fun! They sent me a snowflake one and a Christmas tree one. These tags also have an adhesive strip on the back so that you can easily attach them to your gifts!

The Pink 'Dillo's items are very affordable! Other items you can purchase from The Pink 'Dillo include:
-Magnets
-Cards

  1. Oh gosh EVERYTHING in Angela's shop is so cute, but for this comment I'll have to narrow down my faves to one category: the gift tags with scalloped edges! So I esp. love the "Glittery Green & White Snowflake", "Gingerbread Men", and "Red Stamped Heart" tags! In general, I love her color, pattern, and shape combos!
