Trying to do my part and stay sane during the pandemic I turned to my passion for doodling. As a mom, lawyer and small business owner, I have had limited time to express my creativity over the past 10+ years. However, as life slowed down during the Covid-19 pandemic I began doodling and recreating some characters I had regularly drawn at camp 20+ years ago, this time to celebrate and thank those we love.
Through Facebook, on the evening of May 3, 2020, I posed an idea to convert my character doodles to yard art. It received amazing words of encouragement within minutes, so that same evening my husband created the YardPeeps website. Within 3 days and not yet even seeing the first yard sign printed, we had over 500 orders. Forty-five days later YardPeeps found its way to all 50 states. As I had never before offered my art for sale, I was overjoyed by the support and following YardPeeps quickly gained.
Today, only 6 months later, people from across the country order existing signs and new designs each day. Many of our followers have placed multiple orders, which lead us to expand by offering new subscription service. Through our subscription service I will create and ship new signs with a positive, seasonal and relevant message every month. Peeps, now we provide a fun way to refresh your yard though a Monthly or Quarterly subscription.
Continue to follow YardPeeps to see what sign will pop up next.
With Love & Gratitude!
