Sharon Hobson, Designer, Say Yay Designs

Hi!

I'm Sharon Hobson, the owner and lead designer of Say Yay designs.

I've always been into design (graphic and web design) but a number of years ago (as part of my coming out journey) I was looking for clothes, jewelry, tote bags etc. that I could wear that would express who I truly am. They were kinda hard to find, weren't made by LGBTQ+ makers or just 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 and t-shirts and then eventually to jewelry, so you'll find a little bit of everything here.

My creations are based on things that I enjoy, read or that happen to me in my life. I am a proud lesbian and that is reflected in my world and my work. Each piece is handmade with love, a whole bunch of swearing (fucking fiddly bits - jeez!), and the desire to bring you joy.

My goal with this site isn't to sell a ton of products, it's not my full-time job. I want to share my creations, and hopefully the work of other artists, 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 your self to something purdy. Go and check it out (especially if you like rainbows and sparkly things!!)
