Announcements regarding Pin Passion Shop. goes LIVE!

Hello and welcome to the first blog post of Pin Passion Shop and what better way to welcome you then to start with a massive “Thank You” for your clicking through to read this! So . . . . .


I am seriously excited to welcome you to my new online shop, as it has gone live TODAY, after weeks of frantically planning, building and testing all the technical bits required for a safe, secure and smooth running website for the purpose of your perusing pleasure.

So what do you think? I’m very proud of the work that has gone into it and for that, I want to give a BIG shout-out to my wonderful husband and biggest supporter, Eamonn, for encouraging me to set up Pin Passion when it was just a spark of an idea in my mind at the beginning of the year.

Lending me his technical expertise and brilliant coding skills, he helped me put together this beautiful website that you are now browsing and I really couldn’t have stayed on track without him!

I plied him with copious amounts of coffee to get Pin Passion Shop on track!

Today is also the beginning of the Chinese new year so I want to wish you a HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR OF THE RAT! I hope that 2020 will have amazing things in store for you!

Speaking of rats, have you seen my very first enamel pin design on the shop page? Throughout the end of 2019, I have been refining this pin design. I decided at the very start, when conceiving the idea of Pin Passion, that it will be based on the rat from the Chinese zodiac. This was for special reasons, which I will share with you now.

First, it’s the new lunar year cycle, representing a fresh start for myself on my new business venture. It will also be a personal one for me as I plan to develop new skills in designing enamel pins and spending more time pursuing my artistic hobbies, which I have been neglecting for far too long.

Second, the rat represents ambition and tenacity, positive traits which I hope to develop this year to push me to make Pin Passion a success!

And thirdly . . . well . . . for now, I’ll keep that a closely guarded secret! But watch this space and maybe I’ll share with you the last and (in my opinion) the most important reason for my design decision in a future blog post.

In the meantime, why not visit the Pin Passion Shop page and take a look at the first product on offer. I have put a lot of time and thought into this design in hopes that you will love it as much as I do.

It truly is a special piece to me and I can’t wait to see the final physical result when I receive my first batch of enamel pins from my manufacturer at end of the month.

For now, you can place a pre-order to guarantee that a piece of Pin Passion history will be in your hands by the end of February and for a limited amount of early bird orders, I will include extra goodies as a “Thank You” for your support during the early stages of Pin Passion so don’t delay!

Don’t forget to use your SPECIAL DISCOUNT CODE for those who have previously signed up for the first round of the Pin Passion Newsletter. You can apply this code to this debut product only so no need to save it up for future products.

Once more, thank you for being here and doubly thanks for reading this blog post all the way to the end! Phew!

But it’s really only the beginning of where I plan to take Pin Passion!

Can you tell how excited I am? I hope so because I am bursting with energy to start designing my next enamel pin! I already have an idea, which I shall share with you soon on Pin Passion’s social media pages. Please follow for the latest news and updates!

Until then my friends,

Passionately, Anna
