What do you do when you are in the middle of a craft project at 10:30 p.m. and need that perfect something?! Go digital of course! Today’s creative mompreneur is one creative digital momma. I first came across her work about 6 years ago and well, I was in awe. Since then I am happy to call her friend!
So without further ado, please meet Trish Yochum…
Please tell us a little about yourself and your creative business:
I am a graphic designer, devoted mom and loving wife. I am never one to enjoy doing nothing and I find it difficult to relax by just hanging around the house. In the evenings, this down time lead me to creating hand made cards. Then in 2006 I was introduced to Digital Scrapbooking and set off creating papers, embellishments and whatever my imagination thought of that would make creating a digital scrapbooking page fun. I opened my digital scrapbooking Etsy shop this year and have been working to fill the shelves. When you come to my store you will find bright colors, themed kits, playful clipart and templates to inspire others to create with.
How did you happen to start your own business? Was there a particular motivation?
Until 2006 I had been a graphic designer and graphic design team manager at a game company. Our oldest son was getting ready to start Kindergarten and I didn’t want him to go to daycare after school, so I left my job and began freelancing.
Where do you find the inspiration for the creations you bring to life?
My products have been designed to reflect the personality of my family, because they are what inspire me to create. Many of my favorite kits that I have designed are centered on activities that we enjoy doing as a family.
What would you like people to know about your wonderful products?
I hope that with my digital scrapbook products people will enjoy creating keepsakes of their precious memories.
When you are not busy filling shelves, what do you like to do to recharge?
My favorite things to do when I am not working are to go window shopping at the craft store or stop to grab a coffee and head to a bookstore. I love to browse through design books, soaking up the colors and patterns that I find on each page.
Where can we find your fabulous products on the internet?
My digital scrapbook products can be found on Etsy at www.etsy.com/shop/TrishYochumDesigns
