Hi Friends! I wanted to share something a little different today.
Do you like collecting enamel pins? I purchased my first enamel pins in 2019; that same year Nathan went to Denver Comic Con and picked up some fun pins for me, too. I was totally hooked on collecting enamel pins after that! I love to wear pins on my bag and display them in my home office. Some of the first pins I purchased were craft related ones from The Gray Muse. Since then, I’ve collected a variety of pins and I’ve even subscribed to a monthly cat pin club with The Pink Samurai.
Last fall, Nathan and I thought it would be fun to create some designs of our own; from there I registered a business and opened an enamel pin shop called The Ire Rye!
The Ire Rye name came from a brainstorming session; many different names/ideas were considered, but the word combination ‘The Ire Rye’ really stood out. A funny story grew from there, about an anthropomorphic piece of rye bread who escapes a toaster, and he’s obviously pretty annoyed about it.
Currently The Ire Rye has 3 cute pins for sale: a broken heart, a grumpy heart, and a sour apple. These little pins were so fun to design and it was such a treat to actually hold them in my hand!
What kinds of things do you like to collect?
