About

Designer By Day + Craft Guru By Night = Design Gone Beauty

Hi! I'm Minnie, owner and founder of NYC Metro Girl. New Mom. Painter. Soap Maker. Artist. Writer. Poet. Baker. All around maker.

Born and raised in Staten Island, NYC, my love for creating items has grown with me since I was a child. Seeing a smile on someone's face from purchasing an item is far better than the money itself.

I am open to any custom items you would like to have done. Options are endless.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

In 2013 I decided to open my shop, NYC Metro Girl. Even though I knew there was steep competition, I wanted to bring something simple yet functional to the Etsy World.

Born and raised in the forgotten borough of Staten Island, I have always been involved with Arts and Crafts.

One word to describe my studio is peaceful. The aromas of my soaps and my art on the walls help relieve any stressful day.

About half of my studio consists of tools and supplies for soap making and packaging. Since I am very DIY, I create my notecards that I insert into each package when shipped. Sometimes its hard to decide which ones to use since they're all so cute.

When I'm looking for new supplies, it's generally in the cake department or the plaster department. Ideas that I try to come up with are usually geared towards familiarity. Customers are familiar with baking and the visual of baking. Whereas plaster is a more artistic and sentimental to a person.

I enjoy running my shop by taking the pictures and positioning them as I do so.

What's unique about my brand? It's handmade in New York City, the capital of the world. I know that seems cheesy and says nothing about my product but I want people across the country to be able to enjoy a little something that comes from New York City. Not everyone gets a chance to visit this great city so why not ship something handcrafted to them.

The handmade soaps that I make which include cupcake soaps and muffins are done using the Hot Process method of soap making.

Customer service is extremely important to me and my customers. I want them to be satisfied with their products. There's nothing more rewarding than having your customers come back and say that the product was awesome!

My work is inspired by various things. I can watch my TV shows and I see a piece of jewelry on a girl and come up with an idea. Inspiration is always random for me.

    As a young girl, I spent a lot of time doing arts and crafts instead of playing outside. Now I get to do what I love everyday in every way. Art rules!
