      So as part of my new blogging experience I have decided to promote online shops that I think are worth getting attention! I feel very proud to promote this shop called Pretty Pastels. It's a small shop that sells handmade items such as hair bows, phone charms and jewelry! The owner Syra, makes all the items herself. How awesome is that?!

     When I asked her about the process when she makes the items she told me, "Well, basically I sketch my ideas first. I try to mimic my vision into the drawings. I do my best to think of things that people and myself would actually buy. Then the FUN part! Making the charms :D It takes a while because working with clay is harder than it seems. I do my best to make them perfect but my products still do have their own unique flaws. When they're done baking, I add final touches(I sand for smoothness.. Gloss them.. And make sure the pins stay in place). I make them look presentable, take pictures, and then add them to my store (: It's a very long process but it's worth every feeling knowing people are buying my work!!"
   Now, that's cute. 
   Personally, I think has  incredibly cute-one-of-a-kind-items. Her charm ideas are great and you can tell she put a lot of time and effort in them. Give her shop a go and support small online shops!  
Syra, love and good vibes to you! (。╯ᴗ╰)〜
