Momomints Booth at Etsy Vancouver’s Made in Canada Pop-up Market 2015 at Robson Square

Last month we had the privilege of being a vendor once again at the Etsy Vancouver Made In Canada Market at Robson Square in Vancouver, BC.  It was such a whirlwind day full of excitement! We were lucky that it was nice and sunny on that day despite being famously known as ‘Raincouver’. There were plenty of shoppers that came to check out and support the local Etsy shops. Etsy Vancouver just recently released some stats and this year there were 4x the number of attendees than last year! We didn’t get a chance to walk around to see all the vendors and our friends but we did manage to quickly check out the following Etsy shops:

This was just a teeny tiny selection of all the Etsy shops that were selling that day. We really wish we could’ve visited every booth! We’re already so excited for next years market! It has grown so much in just 2 short years. Big thanks to the Etsy Vancouver team and the volunteers that day for pulling off such a successful market!!

And of course a big heartfilled thanks to everyone who came by our booth and supported us! It was great meeting new friends, seeing familiar faces and finally meeting some fellow IG followers! You help shape what Momomints is today. THANK YOU!

Cute Custom Handmade Amigurumi Crochet Bunny and Monkey Ja & Ju Stuffed Toys for Jubes Comic

Cute Custom Handmade Amigurumi Crochet Bunny and Monkey Ja & Ju Stuffed Toys for Jubes Comic

Last year was a very busy year for  us for custom orders. So much so that we are still trying to work through our backlog. Thank you for all your support! We are so grateful for all the requests that we receive. One of our latest custom orders was to create custom Ja & Ju amigurumi stuffed toys for Julie! She is the very talented creator of Jubes Comic Blog and also from Vancouver! We’ve seen her work on Instagram and just adore her style. She also recently launched her own online shop of custom hand drawn mugs on Etsy!

As with all custom orders, it’s really fun seeing how a 2D drawing gets turned into a 3D object. Sometimes we work with the customer to create the sketch and design based on their vision but for this order we got a lovely doodle from Julie! Isn’t it cute?! I was so excited to finally start working on this custom order.

I started working on Ju (the bunny) first. Crocheting with cream yarn like the Momobunnies and finishing it up by embroidering on the mouth.

Next up I worked on creating Ja (the monkey). It was the first time I tried crocheting a monkey using two different yarn colours. I then added a small tail and embroidered on a smiling mouth on Ja. I love how the embroidered details really made it more special.

Puglie the Pug with Printed Button Pins

Puglie the Pug with Printed Button Pins

A couple of months ago when we were vendors at the Artist Alley at NWFanFest we met a ton of talented individuals. One of the artists we met there was Eugenia Leung (@eugelng) the creator of Puglie, the cutest Pug you’ve ever seen!  We’ve been admiring her work back when we first saw her selling at the Exhibition Hall over at FanExpo. So you can imagine the absolute delight and excitement when she approached us to create a custom amigurumi stuffed toy of her original creation – Puglie!

Soon after NWFanFest, Marissa began sketching out Puglie based on Euge’s designs and how she was going to crochet it.  It was to date the most detailed commission to create.  Using a combination of acrylic yarn and felt, Puglie soon came to life.

Meet Puglie in all his chubbiness.

At this moment we are busy prepping for craft fairs and unfortunately will only be accepting custom orders on a case by case situation.  We apologize in advance but we’ll have plenty of exciting new product releases in the future to make up for it.

Thank you for your support and helping Momomints grow! Enjoy the rest of the summer!

Custom Handmade Penguin and Whale Keychain Set

Custom Handmade Penguin and Whale Keychain Set

Back in April we were contacted through email by a customer that found us through our Etsy Shop. She was looking high and low for some cute keychains and happened to stumble upon Momomints. That was when we received one of the sweetest custom request emails.

Look at all the love between these two keycharm keychains!

Look at all the love between these two keycharm keychains!

She was looking for a special gift for her boyfriend who was graduating in May and was moving out of state. She wanted to give him matching keychains, one for her and one for him, something they could both keep on them as a reminder of each other.

She mentioned that when they are apart, they use a phone app that is made for couples that allows them to chat privately and share photo albums. This app also features stickers or emoticons of these two characters: a penguin and a whale. The penguin and the whale represented her and her boyfriend and so she requested if we could recreate them as keycharms.

The penguin was customized with a red heart and the whale was customized with a red bowtie.

We recently received a thank you email from our customer,

“… I wanted to thank you SO much for the two adorable keychains! I was so amazed at how identical they looked to the emoticons 🙂 My boyfriend is graduating tomorrow so I gave his keychain as part of his gift and he absolutely loves it (his is hooked to his keys and mine is attached to my wallet!) Thank you again and keep up the amazing business!”

Kind words like this always makes our day! It’s such an honour that people choose us to be part of a special moment or occasion in their lives and their loved ones. We hope to continue to hear lovely stories like this and create for more wonderful people around the world.

All our keycharm keychains are handmade in Vancouver. For custom orders feel free to send us a custom request or any questions through our Etsy Shop: http://momomints.etsy.com

Custom Gift Order of Panda Keycharm Keychains with Yellow Hearts

Custom Gift Order of Panda Keycharm Keychains with Yellow Hearts

We recently received a custom order for a set of three momo Panda bear keycharm keychains by a local customer in Vancouver. Our customer really likes pandas as well as the colour yellow! She thought they would be very unique gifts for friends and we couldn’t agree more!

We loved making these pandas and were very happy with how these handmade polymer clay charms turned out! I have a feeling we’ll be making more of these little bears in the near future. A new momo-teddy or momo-bear product line coming soon? *hint hint* 😉
