About Me

Hello! I am a stay-at-home mom which is by far the hardest job I've ever had! I am a college graduate and have worked in various (and unfulfilling) corporate jobs. From Customer Service Rep, to Production Scheduler to Project Manager - no matter how high up the corporate ladder I climbed, the result was always the same - bust my hump so someone else could get the big payoff and recognition. It didn't take me long to decide I could live without all that stress.

I have always wanted to be my own boss. I've had a couple other Etsy shops as well as selling on Ebay. While they were mildly successful, I kept feeling like something was missing. I wasn't sure what it was; it was more of an 'I'll know it when I see it' feeling. It took me a while to find my niche, but I know I finally found it with Owl Say Designs.

OSD started out of necessity. We are, primarily and by choice, a one income family. Around the end of 2008, my husband began to travel to Canada for work. Our son was just over a year old and tall enough to reach up onto tables and cabinet tops. One day he found my husband's passport. A few bite marks and drool smudges later, I was on the hunt to find a passport cover. And I found wasn't able to find a decent inexpensive passport cover for his passport. Living on only one salary doesn't lend itself to paying $20-$30 (or more!) for a passport cover. I knew there had to be hundreds of families in positions like mine. So I looked for a way to create and develop inexpensive, sincerely cute, and drastically affordable passport covers. A cover that would stand up to a guy shoving it in his back pocket, cramming it in his briefcase, spilling soda on it, and baby spit-up (hey, it happens). Thus began Owl Say Designs. Everything else in the shop flowed from there.

I like for things to be practical. When you have limited time and budget, it's just not feasible to spend  hours looking for a Passport Cover under $10. I love being able to offer products that are beautiful, creative, have multiple uses and most of all, are affordable. I sincerely believe everyone should be able to own high quality, beautiful products without overpaying for them. So with that I say, Happy Shopping!
