We will once again be a vendor at the Etsy Vancouver Market: Made in Canada event on Sept 24 and 25! This will be our 3rd time participating and we couldn’t be more excited! If you ever attended one of the previous events as a customer or vendor you will know exactly how we feel. This market is one of our most favourite markets to attend because of the atmosphere, vendors and lovely people that come and shop.

This year the Etsy Vancouver Market will take place over two days and is located in the beautiful Pipe Shop building in North Vancouver. So now you have two days to come visit over 90+ vendors and make an awesome day of it. There will be swag bags given away again this year to the first 50 shoppers each day and a scavenger hunt to win an amazing gift basket filled with handmade goodies.  You will have a chance to win one of our cute canvas tote bags in the gift basket or one of our limited edition button pins for this years market in some of the swag bags.

Momomints Custom Keychain Set Featuring Giraffes with Pineapples

Momomints Custom Keychain Set Featuring Giraffes with Pineapples

Back in February we received another special custom order set. One of the best things about receiving custom orders is the stories that the couples share with us about the significance of their order.

For this order, it was a stuffed toy giraffe that held special meaning to the couple. Their request was for two sets of couple keychains. We were so excited to try our hand and making these cute animal charms.

The first set was of the giraffe with his legs sprawled out (so cute!) and with a pineapple on his back.

We just adore making replicas of people’s stuffed toys. That and it’s always so fun to make little pineapples!

One of the signature features of the giraffe toy was its gleaming little smile.  This was something we were specifically asked replicate.

The second set of matching keychains was of the giraffe standing on his feet!

All the little details were handpainted with precision to imitate the details on the couple’s stuffed toy.

Back in January of this year, momomints was contacted by a company in Australia. They were interested in a bulk order of custom sheep keycharm keychains and we were more than excited to make it for them!

The company was actually an Australian beauty brand called Lanolips. Lanolips is famous for their natural lanolin ointment and has been featured in Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue, The Times UK, Cosmopolitan, Elle Magazine, Marie Claire, Instyle, UK Harper’s Bazaar, The Telegraph UK, Sunday Telegraph, and Good Health! Boy, that’s a mouth full! You can read more about Lanolips and their story here: http://www.lanolips.com/story/.

We were told that the keychains were ordered as thank you gifts from Lanolips to the media, as a token of ongoing support since the launch of their brand five years ago. Knowing that our keycharms were going to be shared with many others was very exciting!

They had initially asked for 18 sheep charms adorned with yellow bananas, but this request later was changed to the 25 sheep with pink roses.

Making a batch of 25 identical sheep polymer clay charms was definitely a feat! But we made every effort to put in the same amount of love and detail into each sheep to make sure they would individually make great gifts to their future owners.

Each sheep was hand molded and hand painted by us and were completed in two weeks for a rush delivery to Australia!

Seeing a pile of momomints sheep keycharm keychains all packaged up gave us so much joy. We are constantly thankful for the opportunities we have received to create something we love and are absolutely proud of for others to share with people that are important in their lives.

We definitely hope to get more chances to collaborate and create lovely handmade gifts for others all over the world!
