Welcome to Miseducated, where my motto is: live inspired and unconventional.

I created this brand to release my nostalgic obsessions and visual communications into the atmosphere. I enjoy both creating and sharing art; this is why Miseducated was a blog first. There are so many lip-smacking aesthetic inspirations and designs that can be found today, if just you look! There is an abundance of inspiring people and places around the world to open our eyes to. Let’s get comfortable embracing the unconventional.

Miseducated is the official brand for all Pop Cult Pins, the Miseducated Collection, the original Deericorn, and all pop art by Amber Renee. I so appreciate all of the continued love and support for the shop here, and look forward to making new goodies for you to go gaga over! Thank you so much for joining me on this journey.

Miseducated Timeline

Miseducated began in 1997 as a personal website by myself (this is also the year I got kitten Hobbes and met my girl soulmate Kimikat) covered in rainbows, candy, and moon cats. In April of 2001 I bought the domain www.miseducated.net and proceeded to move my personal website there. In November of 2008 I finally converted, updated and published some old articles I’d written and Miseducated was reborn as the whimsical blog and lifestyle brand you see today. In 2010, after much regret of not choosing to buy the .com –I seriously thought .net sounded better at the time– and many years of waiting, www.miseducated.com went up for auction and I was finally able to snag it at a fair price.
