honey pie designs: sponsor post + giveaway

Today’s sponsor post features Lana of Honey Pie Designs. I actually came about Lana’s NYC Etsy site via while blog hopping several months ago. I love her fresh, modern, and graphic style. After ordering my own yellow love pillow (photographed in my living room, below), we got to talking and she decided to sponsor MML and do an lovely giveaway (details at the end).

Here is a little interview we did, in which I learned that she will soon be doing a line of tote bags(!!). I know I’ll be back for bags and custom gifts in the (near) future as well.


I love how graphic and fun your pillows are! Where do you get your inspiration for new deigns?

I get a lot of my inspiration from graphic and interior design books and magazines, vintage wallpapers and fashion. Being a graphic designer, I am a bit of a font fanatic. I’m always shopping around for new fonts and trying to find a classic yet modern font that would translate well on a pillow.

As a designer myself, I know there are some things that I love making more than others. What are your favorite styles to make?

It involves more work but I love making patterned pillows. I love creating patterns out of felt. I enjoy the process of sketching my ideas on paper, then recreating it on the computer, printing out my stencils and finally sewing and having a finished product.

I love the script you use on many of your pillows, it would be adorable for a child’s room or gift! Can customers request personalization?

Yes they can! I have made pillows for customers redesigning a new bedroom for their growing child or friends buying pillows for girlfriends that are expecting. I have also made personalized pillows as christening gifts. I love working with customers and making a special pillow just for them.

What is your vision for Honey Pie Design in the next year or two?

I want to create a line of baby items and gift sets. Before my daughter was born I made her some really cute bibs, toys and clothes. I want to start making some of these things for my Etsy shop. I have also been working on tote bags and hope to have my new designs on sale soon.
