I’m a recent Austin transplant from Washington DC with a degree in marketing and a desire to explore my creative side! After moving to Austin in summer 2012, I started the tedious task of finding employment in a completely different market. I realized I could only spend so many hours working on resumes, cover letters, and scouring the job boards all to get a simple “no” without wanting to pull my own hair out! In the Pinterest-inspired spirit, I decided I wanted to get creative and spend my extra free time doing something that I was interested in. I spent weeks learning how to make coasters and starting to create personalized sets for friends and family. They were a hit! After seeing similar coasters for sale for $10 (for one coaster!), I decided I should take the leap and open an Etsy shop so that I could provide my products at a more affordable price for people like me. I created the Lauerland Boutique and officially launched in August 2012. I love the reaction I get when someone receives their personalized coaster set!
