Sponsor Post : Ooh Baby Designs

Hey guys! Today I have the pleasure of sharing with you an awesome shop, and this month's featured sponsor , Ooh Baby Designs. Stephanie's shop is filled with beautifully crafted and handmade totes and scarves. Here is an interview with Stephanie about her shop, and if you haven't already, check her out on FB // Twitter // & her Shop for some one of a kind gifts. (psst. she also does bridesmaids packages! which is awesome in itself!) Below I have also posted some pictures of my favorite pieces in the Ooh Baby Designs Shop. Let me know what your favorite is!

Tell us a little bit about you and your shop.
I design bold, colorful on-trend bags and scarves. I also have several skirt and dress designs that I haven't quite gotten prototyped as of yet!
How did you start your store, and what is the idea behind it?
I started when I was laid off as a way to make interim income. Soon, it became a full-time venture. The idea was to make practical, functional accessories that also followed trend.
What is the hardest thing about owning your own handmade etsy shop?
Work/life balance - hands down! I have 2 children, a wonderful husband, a puppy in training - and I rarely leave my sweatshop :-) It doesn't hurt that I absolutely LOVE what I do, and I work where I live. therefore I suffer from the work/life balance struggle...
What inspires you every day?
Honestly, color. Color in nature, man made color. colors you don't expect to see. It's not strange to see me perusing the paint counter with absolutely no intention of painting anything :-)
How do you use time management, and do you have any tips for new handmade etsy sellers? 
Time management...ha-ha-ha-ha.....
Yeah, I don't have that one figured out yet. My biggest tip, and it was my hardest to learn, is don't under charge. Did you hear me? Now, pretend I said it again...don't under charge!! It's hard to charge what we are truly worth, but it is essential.
Lastly, what is your favorite part of selling handmade?
Working in my pajamas :-)
