I’m Sharon Hobson, the owner and lead designer of Say Yay Designs.

I’ve always been into design (graphic and web design) but several years ago (as part of my coming out journey), I was looking for clothes, jewelry, tote bags etc., that I could wear to express who I truly am. They were kinda hard to find, weren’t made by 2SLGBTQIA+ creators or didn’t quite express my odd combination of dark and twisty inside, Little Mary Sunshine outside. So I decided to try to make them myself. What started with tote bags, morphed into mugs, t-shirts, stuffed animals and finally jewelry, so you’ll find a little bit of everything here.

My creations are based on things I enjoy, read, or encounter. I am a proud lesbian, and that is reflected in my world and my work. Each piece is handmade/designed with love, swearing (fucking fiddly bits – jeez!), and the desire to bring you joy.

My goal with this site isn’t to sell bunches of products; it’s not my full-time job. I aspire to share my creations with the world. I want to make people happy, explore my creativity and maybe pay for some of my supplies :)

So browse, shop, share, and treat yourself to something pretty. Check it out (especially if you like rainbows and sparkly things!!)
