Working with eBay Collections....

on Thursday, 27 March 2014.

Almost everyone I know has an eBay profile.  Even my Mum has an eBay profile and she struggles to turn the computer on and off. (She also reads this blog when she does manage to work it- Hi Mum!)  I have had a eBay profile for years, buying so many different things from the site, including makeup, iPods, phones, toys and clothes.  I have also used eBay in the past to earn a little bit of pocket money from selling things that we no longer use or need.  We have even sold one of our cars on there as well, so it's safe to say I am a fan.

Which is why when I was asked to work alongside them a few months ago on a top secret project they were working on, I was really excited.  They have just started 'eBay collections' which are a series of mood boards full of their products made by their members, and it's a great way of being inspired by others. 

For example, I have a *slight* obsession with wooden toys for the girls, and also for kitchen bits which I have documented a few times.  Therefore one of the collections I created was 'Wooden Toys for Kitchen Roleplay'- full of more gorgeous little wooden toys on my wishlist for Mads and LL.  


Or because I am currently on a keep fit mission I created a 'Getting fit after Baby' collection, full of my dream wish list fitness items.  It really is as simple as that.  It's great to see what other people are inspired by and it gives you great ideas for products for your family, home and even for yourself. 

I have really enjoyed working on this project with eBay, and the other day I got a tweet from the lovely Baby Budgeting to say that she had just seen me on the front page.  To say I was excited was an understatement.  When I started blogging, I never thought that I would be on the front page of one of the most popular sites in the world next to Dannii Minogue and Reggie Yates.  Crazy!  

Of course I had to screen shot it so I could remember my two minutes of fame...





Can you spot us? 


I really enjoyed taking part in this project, and I think eBay collections are going to be huge.  It's really addictive to create these wishlists and so fun to see what is inspiring others too.  You can check out the rest of my eBay collections here. 


This post is in collaboration with a project I am doing with eBay UK.

    This is awesome I have never heard of it before and I buy and sell things on ebay ALL THE TIME. I am a huge fan. I even blog about how to make time to sell your baby's clothes on ebay when I first started out. I will definitely go check out your boards with envy. This is great thanks for sharing.

      Well you should definitely have a look Jenny, they are really amazing, although I have become a little obsessed with adding things to my wish lists!

      They are great to do, it's basically like a pinterest mood board full of inspiration. It's great.

    It was so cool spotting your faces on there the other day. Your wooden toys collection has helped me a lot, I now know what to get Charles for his birthday! xx

      It is open to everyone, they are great fun to make, although it's making me want to buy far too much!
