Sponsor Guest Post: Erika From Rouge & Whimsy

July 15, 2011

Guys I have a treat for you today! Erika from Rouge & Whimsy is guest posting and she is just beyond the sweetest and cutest girl! See for yourself!! Thanks again Erika!! Take it away...

Hi Meet Virginia Design readers!

I'm Erika of Rouge & Whimsy. I make pretty accessories and blog about life and the little things that make me smile on my blog. Come say hi! :)

Morgan asked the sponsors to do a little guest post about ourselves. It's a little daunting, so I thought I'd start by talking about how I started my Etsy shop.

I've always been interested in creating things, in fashion, in interior design-- all that good stuff. In fact I think if I had to pick, I'd have a hard time narrowing it down.

Once upon a time in high school I thought I was going to go to a fashion design school in Los Angeles but before I was going down for the tour I chickened out and decided to go to the nearby University of Washington. (It's a good thing that I did go there because I met my husband!)

Even now, out of school and a "grown-up," I can't pin down what I want to do.

author. blogger. fashion designer. mom. interior designer. independent store owner. wedding planner
so while I do have a "good" day job that I actually like, I decided that I needed an outlet for the creative passions that run through me.

enter Etsy.

Right now I sell hair accessories that remind me of a prettier, more feminine time and age but I feel like I have the freedom to expand or to go a different direction.

and that thrills me.

So today, I'm here, blogging about life and finding joy in making pretties for hair.

tomorrow? who knows?

xo,
Erika
