holding hands

I love stories of people leaving corporate jobs and finding a new home running their own business. Casey Ohngren left an office day job to follow her dream of starting her own design studio. She recently made the jump and opened an Etsy shop where she’s selling cards and prints. I’m a sucker for hot pink, so this “Holding Hands” print ($35) is sheer perfection for me. Bold, colorful and sweet (and perfect for next week’s holiday). You can check out all of Casey’s work and shop online right here. Here’s to taking the leap and following your dreams . . . xo, grace


Cool! I actually tried doing that shape with my hands… tough one :)


Thanks for sharing! I love this print and I also love those sorts of quit your day job success stories!


Love both the bright color and the morning inspiration. I’ve been convincing myself to take just such a leap from corporate work myself, and what wonderful encouragement!


I too just left my job (as an architect) to focus full-time on our small etsy shop. Best of luck to you in your new adventures!

Love the hot pink – I would love some gangsta hand signals.


YAY!! for Casey. Her designs and cheery happy nature inspire me everyday. It is also a dream come true for her to be featured here on Design Sponge. Congratulations girlfriend!!
