Hi and welcome to SIMONEmadeit – your home for themed Editable and Printable Party Templates that YOU personalize at home!
Where I live …
I am an Australian who has been fortunate to live as an expat in Asia for almost 20 years with my husband. Our first posting was in Lae, Papua New Guinea in 1997 followed by Phnom Penh, Cambodia and we are currently in our 15th year living in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam – now with 2 kids in tow.
Why we love it …
While this expat life definitely has it’s challenges, there are far more upsides…
Vietnam is busy, chaotic, noisy, fun and full of experiences and travel opportunities. I also have a cook (yep, enough said!), fun friends from all over the world, and this view everyday:
Vietnamese people also love kids – and ours have been welcomed and adored everywhere (and had their photo snapped more times than I can remember).
Not to mention the abundance of delicious and amazingly cheap food (Bún Thịt Nướng – BBQ pork with rice noodles – is currently our family favorite).
How SIMONEmadeit started …
A few years ago, when printed invitations were very hard to find in HCMC, I started creating them myself for friends birthdays and farewell parties. This soon developed into a successful Etsy shop that I opened in 2011 and still run today. To date I have sold over 48,000 editable templates on Etsy alone!
When I realised how popular editable printables were becoming I started this website for customers who don’t shop on Etsy. As a procrastinator, I know the value of an Instant Download! All templates on this site are delivered via instant download links – perfect for those of us who leave everything till the last minute!
SIMONEmadeit customers …
My customers are a diverse bunch of (mostly) mums from all over the world. While most of my customers are from the USA, I am seeing more from other parts of the world like Australia, the UK, and even Asia. The benefit of buying digital downloads is that they are immediately accessible no matter where you live!
And hearing from lovely customers like Michele from Western Springs in Illinois makes my day every time:
“Another amazing download from Simone Made It. Simone is by far my favorite Party Decor designer. Her designs are always so awesome & creative with vivid colors and so much attention to detail. I LOVE that I can edit her designs myself – since I always wait too long for customization! I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next!”
