I am super excited about this blog post. About six months ago, I decided that I wanted to take my love of Mickey ears a step farther and start making my own ears… to sell. I had really been making ears for myself and a couple of Disney friends to wear but I just didn’t think they were good enough to sell.
I started really working on the areas that I wanted to improve on and slowly but surely, I started becoming pretty pleased with my creations.
I love Disney ears. If you follow us on our other platforms this is something I talk about all the time. A lot of Disney friends collect pins or bags or ornaments or any number of fun Disney related items. I love ears. I have ears for every themed outfit, I work with amazing ear makers to bring visions to life and even though I have opened my own shop, I will absolutely 100% continue to support my favorite ear makers and search out new ones.
I wanted to make unique Disney ears for the unique Disney fan and I’m really pleased with how they have turned out thus far.
This is a hobby for me. I am making ears on the side, in addition to working a full-time job and running a full-time blog. I am not one for relaxation. In my down time, when we are watching television or relaxing, I still have to be doing something. If I’m not blogging or baking, I’m now working on ears.
This has been such a fun experience and something that is really outside of my comfort zone. I don’t like putting myself out there to fail. I like to do things that I know I can be successful at but just because I like my ears doesn’t mean that anyone else will. I set really lofty goals for myself and selling on Etsy was just never something that I thought I would do.
We are a few days in and I have to say, I am loving this, I am already working on new designs and thinking up some fun holiday designs and I can’t wait to get back to work on even more ears.
The ears I make are a labor of love, they take a long time but the finished product is such a joy. I am proud of myself for taking this leap and moving ahead with this project and I was so thrilled when my shop finally opened and I was able to see the fruits of my labor live for everyone to check out.
I would love for you to take a look at my shop and see if there is something you would like. If you have ideas for future ears please let us know on any of our platforms and be sure to follow us on Instagram, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter for special discounts and new ears when they debut.
