We are constantly coming up with designs. We write them down, draw them up, take pictures, discuss them and we work closely with my sister to creatively translate them to be transferred on apparel. My super talented sister Ashley, has always been creative as well. Since I can remember, she would draw and make things so it didn’t surprise me when she decided to take her talents and passion into her career as a graphic designer. Together we collaborate to develop each design. There are so many designs we have and we CANNOT wait for them all to come to life in our apparel. (Just wait and see!)
When we finally decided to take the leap and have our designs printed, it took many, many, MANY attempts to create the perfect coral color that we wanted for our brand. Many paint mixes where wasted because it wasn’t just right but we were not going to take a chance on our first batch of Simply Happy designs.
When we looked at our final, finished product we were beyond excited!! Words are hard to describe when you finally see something tangible in your hand that you have working on and dreaming (literally, we would dream about simply happy) for so long. Our hard work was literally laying on the dining room table and we were about to start something that was so meaningful to us.
Not only did we create a cute tank but our mission is to create happiness; to have the people who wear it convey a positive emotion and know that they feel good while helping a specific cause with our feature charity donation. We know this is just the beginning of Simply Happy and we look forward to many more creative designs and helping important charities all at the same time.
