Remilla’s brand and Teespring store, Made by Mom, features funny, beautiful and uplifting designs for moms and kids—and some great gifts for Mother’s Day too! Her store is inspired by her children and life as a young mother. We hope Remilla’s story inspires you as much as it did us!
Remilla is a California based designer and mother of 3 little ones. She uses Teespring to help channel her creativity while generating extra money to pay off her student loans. If you’ve visited Teespring.com recently you may have seen photos of her family and products.
“If I had to describe my life as a mother in three words they would be messy, simple and full—that’s what Made by Mom is all about, and what the brand represents to me. I love doing things with my kids whether it’s teaching them how to write, coming up with a new art activity, playing in the park, or even reading books together. It’s chaotic most of the time but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I am thankful I am able to spend this time with them!”
You’ll find a variety of awesome products and designs in Remilla’s Teespring store, so which one is this mama’s favorite?
“I love them all, but I think my favorite product is the “This Beautiful Mess” pillow because it comes close to describing my life as a mom…messy but beautiful.” 😉
As a busy mom and designer, Remilla says the trick to maintaining her online store with Teespring is making time for it—and herself.
“I’m with my kids almost full time. I use that time to teach them new things, go to the library, and play (they are still super young). I make sure to designate 2 days out of the week to work on freelance or personal projects. I try not to blend working and taking care of my kids at the same time to give equal focus to both.”
When it comes to selling, Remilla says it’s super important to consider how you present your products in campaigns and stores.
“Think about how your products are displayed together in your shop. Think about what you want people to see first or last. Think about what colored t-shirt you want featured out of the many options you have available for that product. Just like shopping in real life, merchandising is important.”
We’re proud to work with people like Remilla, and so happy to provide her with a platform to showcase her creativity while earning extra income in the process. We’d like to thank Remilla for sharing her story and wish all you mamas out there, a very happy Mother’s Day!
