I figure it’s probably about time I introduce myself. So Hi, I’m Eva, creator and designer of #diehndesigns Oh, and it’s pronounced like “Dean”, which is why I though #thediehnteam was a cute hashtag for us, but only when you say it right haha. Anyways, here’s a little on me. I’m a former Preschool teacher. I taught for 9 years out in the beautiful San Diego, California and I loved every second of it. When I had my first son in August of 2016, my fiancé and I ultimately decided because we had no family there, and it would have cost my entire income to have him at the school I worked at, that it was time to leave my job, and San Diego, and we moved all the way across the country on a crazy road trip with a 2 month old to Massachusetts 😱 Where my family is. I’ve been a stay at home Mom (or Slay at Home Mama as i like to call myself 🤣) ever since and my fiancé is a carpenter. We thought the cost of living would be better here, but it’s really not at all-and we have super long winters 🙄🤦🏻♀️ So we are currently trying to decide what or next step is. I started photo editing a little over a year ago to help bring in a little extra money, but unfortunately that meant many many hours staring at the computer screen, and in turn not being able to give my son the focus and attention he needs. I still do a little on the side if I have some downtime, but nothing like before. My son started brand repping a while back and I just fell in love with the idea of one day starting my own. I love supporting small shops, and moms getting their hustle on. We’ve repped for some amazing shops since our journey began, and we will still continue that. I knew it was finally time for me to make a change. I’ve always been creative, and yeah I was able to get a little of that out in editing, but not nearly as much as I’d like. I finally made the plunge, and even though we’re always struggling financially- we got what was needed to start up a shop of my own and I have honestly just been loving being able to create designs and make them come to life. I hope you will choose to shop at Diehn Designs, and if you don’t see what you are looking for, I am always looking for new design ideas!
