Once upon a time, there was a girl who liked to create cute things. She doodled, sewed, made, created, and covered things in glitter. Then she met a boy and fell in love. He inspired her and encouraged her to share her smiles with the world. MissHappyPink: For People Who Like to Smile.
We asked Miss Happy Pink a few questions, and here is what she told us:
I'm really excited about my new fall prints! They will be available between mid to late October. Also, me and my fiancé, Angryblue, are working on our first collaboration together! It will debut at Ultra-Pop's Halloween-themed group show (Things That Go BUMP in the Night) on October 20th.
The most challenging aspect of running my own business is time & money; There is never enough of either. There is always so much to do not only professionally, but personally, so finding a balance between them is key. When you run your own business, you never stop working. You're always brainstorming, coming up with new ideas and thinking about ways to change or evolve. The hard part is making it all happen within your budget. You learn to get creative and that's where DIY get's it's name!
Something silly about me: I'm terrified of moose. I collect Hello Kitty everything. I feel naked if my toenails aren't painted. I sometimes eat ice cream for dinner because I'm an adult and I can. My art can be purchased online at www.misshappypink.com and locally in Louisville there are a few stores that carry some of my work: Ultra-Pop, WHY Louisville, Hey Tiger and The Hanger.
