Winners Choice of ANY item in Etsy Shop!CLOSED

Getting to Know Sabrina ( RiyahLiDesigns)
Where are you from? and a little bit about you:
I am a married mother of two preschoolers living in Eden Prairie, MN. I have two persona’s at this time which can be very trying! I work during the day as an administrative assistant in health care and nights and weekends I get to have fun and work on my true love; my design business. I have always been an expressive, creative soul and I am at my happiest when I am taping into that.
What items do you carry in your shop?
I am a very eclectic shop. I know that seems to be Etsy death as everyone says you should stick to one category but I feel it’s what’s best for me and my creativity so I am going to run with it and hope everyone follows! Right now I carry hair accessories, art, bags & totes, jewelry, pillows, plush toys & sock monkeys….whew!
How did you decide on your shop name?
I thought about what was most important to me with this business and for me that was to grow creatively while also being able to provide for my children. My business name is derived from this as it is a combination of my two children’s names; Uriyah & Aaliyah.
Do you have anything new you plan on adding to your store?
Yes! Believe it or not I would like to add an upcycled apparel line. I’m still working on making and researching patterns. I’m truly amazed at what can be made from clothing that has been tossed away. I think it’s so important to use what we have to decrease our waste consumption. I’m really excited to be offering this to my customers in the future.

Do you have a blog, twitter or facebook page?



My Thoughts

It is very hard sometimes to decide what item I would like to review. Especially when a shop carries a large variety of items. That was the case with RiyahLiDesigns . Sabrina has so many wonderful items and was super kind to allow me two products to review. A headband along with a sock monkey.


At first I did not know how the headband was going to look because I have never wore one that was so thick. But it worked out extremely well. The headband firmly keeps my hair out away from my face and is now my favorite item to wear in my 71’mini Cooper because it does not have an air conditioner and I have to keep the windows down and I get tired of my hair blowing all around and in my face. With this headband my hair is kept far enough back that it does not get in my eyes and my hair still looks super cute when I get out of the car. Ok…so enough about my car. What about the quality right? The quality is wonderful. Sabrina has added a beautiful ribbon to the headband to affix a little touch of exquisiteness. The stitches are held firmly and the headband has ribbons that tie together to ensure the headband will stay in place.

Sock monkey

I fell in love with Alex as soon as I seen him. My day care kids love him as well. Although he is not a toy for them to play with they do enjoy looking at him and told me he makes my living room spunkier. Alex Is brown and stitched together just as securely as the headband. Sabrina was Also creative by adding a cute little heart to Alex The sock monkey. Sabrina has so many wonderful items to choose from. I am very impressed with her shop and the craftsmanship of her items. I also love that each item has a tag sewed into it to remind you of who the seller is. I also love that she has made a paper tag to place on each item as well. I do not see that too often with Etsy sellers and I found it creative and very professional!
