About ChinnyLuLu

Sales 228
On Etsy since 2010

Born to create

Chin-Lu of Chinnylulu Designs is.... a happy wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, an auntie, a friend.
She is a truth seeker and a deep thinker.
She is a graduate student.
She is a country girl with southern hospitality at heart.
She is interested in people and their lives.
Chin-Lu loves to laugh and smile all the time.
She is full of passion for life.
Sunday is her favorite day of the week.
She is indefinitely a free bird: She loves to dream big, create, and inspire.
Most importantly, she is a creation of the original creator...her reflection is found in Him. She was born to create.
Ever since she was six, she has loved to express herself creatively--classical violin, piano, art, dance, singing, acting--basically any right-brained activity she could get her hands on made her the happiest. In college, Chin-Lu's major was theater and OFCOURSE her favorite class was costume design!!! She learned how to sew and make clothing in this class.
Chin-Lu was looking for the perfect hair accessory to go with her maid of honor dress for her best friend's wedding and couldn't find what she was looking for, so she was inspired to make her vision come to life. That marked the beginning of Chinnylulu Designs. Started off designing wedding hair fascinators and veils for brides and have now expanded into newborn photography world with my husband. We have now combined our baby store {chinnylulu4babies} with this one. For more 5 star reviews, please see:
There is a limited wedding collection for brides as our focus is now on baby hair accessories. Most items are one of a kind (OOAK) and have already been pre made . If you love it, snatch it before someone else does! :) I love being able to design and create elaborate sets for our newborns that we photograph. It's my jam! Most items you see in our photos are made by myself or my mother-in-law such as hair accessories, bunting flags or knitted items. We are a close-knit family owned business. If you are bold and love to make a fashion statement, you will adore Chinnylulu Designs. Hope you love and enjoy the handmade goods and photo props as much as we love taking the time to create them for you.

  • Chin-Lu Hoffmann

    Owner, Creator, Designer

    God has given me a talent for creating, styling, and designing. When I come up with an idea, I then have a vision in my head and I start creating. Our products range from all things baby to room decor to photo props for newborn photographers.

  • Steve Hoffmann


    Steve, my husband has been a professional photographer for the last 13 years. All the photos you see are done by him unless otherwise noted.

  • Helga Hoffmann


    My mother-in-law has been sewing since she was in 5th grade - so that makes her officially sewing for 60 years!!!!!! She's utterly amazing and helps my visions come to life.

Additional policies and FAQs
★★★Frequently Asked Questions : (FAQs)
1. Why does it take 3-5 days for processing after payment is processed?
I am a very busy stay at home mom of two. I have (3) Etsy shops that I run and do shipping for.
I also have a newborn photography business. I'm also a full-time graduate student as well as an intern at my church. Thank you kindly for understanding and being patient as I gather your order together with the greatest care! Xx

★★★:::::::::::CUSTOM ORDER ETIQUETTE:::::::::★★★
As time is very precious, please be respectful and understand that after the design and shopping process for your custom order, we are only able to do minor changes. If you "ok" the final product and it has been sent out and you decide that you want something totally different, the item is not returnable as it is especially customized just for you. Please note that you would have to pay for a brand new one along with another deposit.

ALL custom orders will require deposit that is paid prior to starting. Deposit will be half of the total amount and will go towards the final payment.

For LOCAL brides that would like to meet in person, there will be a $50 travel fee for each visit. This is to be paid PRIOR to meeting. (in addition to the deposit.)

★★★Order Processing: Most items are made to order, so slight modifications may occur as each is handmade. Please allow 7-10 business days for most items (not including shipping time.)
Please allow a minimum of 3-4 weeks for custom orders.


★★★RUSH Order Charges are $25.00 during wedding season.

<<<<<< 20% of the profit will go to my favorite non-profit ministry/organization: "Harvest India.">>>>>>


★★★Veil Care Suggestions: Your veil will likely need to be steamed before wearing to release wrinkles. If you cannot steam, you can iron on the lowest setting and very lightly but be very careful as high temperatures can damage delicate veiling. You can also mist with water and blow dry, again, on a low setting.

★★★Feather Care Suggestions:
All feather fibers can be gently combed with a soft bristle toothbrush. Feather fibers that separate can be stroked back together with your fingers to put back in place.

To EXPAND/FLUFF feathers back into their natural shape, place feather over a steaming tea kettle/pot.

★★★ I welcome wholesale orders. To receive terms and pricing I require proper resale license and id #'s be sent to me along with a copy of your business certificate.
