It’s been a whole week and a half since I blogged about my enamel pin collection, therefore I am going to address this issue today. Allow me to introduce you to the next four pins I have recently purchased (Note to self: if you ever wonder where the student loan has gone, go check your Etsy order history). These are not just ordinary enamel pins, oh no, these are inspirational enamel pins…
Pastel Rainbow Camera Enamel Pin: This cute and colourful camera is from the brilliantly named shop: Hand Over Your Fairy Cakes. The fabulous creator Sally McAdam, has designed acrylic jewellery, enamel pins, patches, accessories and stationery since 2006 and now has stockists all over the world.
I first discovered HOYFC in the July Yay! Makers Subscription Box where I fell in love with the pastel Polaroid patch and very quickly bought myself a pin-sized treat for the collection. I adore anything pastel and HOYFC is bursting with colour and awesomeness. Other pins I have my eye on are: Too Tired To Party and the Pastel Rainbow Ferris Wheel.
Dream Big Hot Air Balloon Enamel Pin: This pin is by cool and quirky designer Laura Galbally, a stationery lover and fan of all things bright and colourful who is also the creator behind Ip Dip Design.
If you love all things creative and colourful, you will love Ip Dip Design – quirky designs to make people happy! There are so many bold and beautiful prints and postcards in Laura’s Etsy shop, as well as an awesome collection of enamel pins. My favourites are: Pastel Pencils and Life Is Too Short To Wear Boring Clothes.
The final two pins are from the same shop: Sparrow + Wolf – a contemporary stationery and design brand based in Birmingham, set up by designer Cherie Gregory. There is a huge range of wonderful items in Cherie’s shop such as gorgeous notebooks, beautiful cushions, and of course an impressive collection of pretty enamel pins.
I really love the If You’re Looking For A Sign This Is It Enamel Pin as it’s a great reminder to stop waiting for the perfect moment and just go for it! I also picked the Wanderlust Ship In A Bottle Enamel Pin with the origami boat inside to represent my love of both creativity and travel. Other pins I love are: Lets Go On An Adventure as well as the Stay Indoors pin to keep things balanced.
I hope you enjoyed the latest set of enamel pins in my ever expanding collection. If you are a pin fan (or llama fan), you may also like to check out Sugar & Sloth’s Pin Party Club: Llama Fancy Dress Parade. Which inspirational pin is your favourite? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
PS. I am now posting on Monday’s & Thursday’s as my studies have started this week *insert head exploding emoji* – wish me luck! See you soon!
