G'day!! Thanks for visiting my site! My name is Diane. After growing up in Australia, I currently live in sunny San Diego, California with my husband and two adorable (mostly) happy kids.
I have always had a love of design and an inner creative mind, which turned into a career in Architectural Lighting Design. However, between working full time, triathlon and home repairs I never made my passion for creativity a priority (can you say scrapbook materials galore for my college graduation scrapbook - STILL sitting unopened in my garage a DECADE later?!).
After struggling with infertility, once we (finally!) found out we were pregnant with our daughter - she became my everything, and I wanted to celebrate her and every event surrounding her in the biggest ways possible.
It all started with our pregnancy announcement... (see the full story of Where it all Began in my Blog!)
Then came Gender Reveal. Birth Announcement. Christmas Card. First Birthday. Second Birthday. I found that I just LOVE to throw a good Pinterest-worthy party! (with a few Pinterest-fails along the way of course!)
By time I was pregnant with our son - a friend suggested that I share my love of creating invitations and party decorations. But who has time to start a new business with TWO kids and a full time job though? Well... the entrepreneur in me kicked in, and if you want something bad enough - you MAKE TIME for it.
MaMi Inspired, LLC (named after my kids) was officially born on Etsy in April 2017. It all started with a few Safety Spot car magnets and kids birthday invitations, and a goal to pay for my Photoshop license each month (a measly $10). However...
You do what you love, when you love what you do.
With a lot of hard work, and late nights after the kids were asleep - MaMi Inspired expanded into dba Unique Digital Designs where I am excited to now offer hundreds of Unique designs - from Pregnancy Announcement to Gender Reveal to Baby Shower to 1st Birthday to First Day of School to Graduation to Engagement to Wedding - and everything in between!
My goal now? Use this creative outlet to help others have the parties of their dreams, and to allow me to spend more time with my kids (seriously - don't blink!). I strive to grow Unique Digital Designs to support not only my own family, but help mentor other aspiring graphic designers. My mission is to be able to donate a portion of each sale to the Infertility Clinic so that other women can also share in the pure joy and Inspiration that I have found in my kids.
Here's to always learning, trying, failing, Dreaming Big, spending time with family and above all else … embracing being Unique.
