I do apologize - it has been quite awhile since I have updated the blog portion of my page! As you can see, things have changed quite a bit around here since I last posted. Where to begin?
For one thing, I finally took a giant leap of faith and quit my corporate job in the health care sector this past month. It came as a shock to many -- especially having invested thousands of dollars into my education over the course of 4 years and then practicing for nearly eight. It was no small decision, and I still get goosebumps thinking about it. However, after putting in my official resignation, I felt a wave of relief sweep over me. Although the job I have now is admittedly much more stressful and the pressure is definitely on to keep things going, I feel so grateful to be able to wake up everyday and do what truly makes my heart sing!
I am also thankful that you all have been so receptive to my handful of collections over the past few years! My ability to design and release was limited to the time I had after work and household/Mommy duties. Thanks so much for sticking with me! I wanted to do so much more earlier, but just didn't have the time or resources.
Being able to focus full time on the business has really opened up the floodgates of creativity! The washi pictured is actually NOT new - but it does have a new twist in that it has been paired with 3 other sister washis and packaged in a gorgeous foiled box, perfect for gifting! With the holidays approaching, I felt like this was a nice touch - hope you guys like it too! If you want to see all my new release, feel free to visit my Etsy shop under the new washi tab!
As you may have heard, I am gearing up to launch a new website in late October complete with a referral program, customer rewards, and more! I feel like this has been a long time in the making and I am THRILLED to see the pieces slowly falling into place.
Also, I am anticipating the first official launch of my membership/subscription service! (Box is a bit of a misnomer as the goodies will come lovingly packaged in a foil envelope!) You can find more information on the subscription page -- I feel like a lot of you will enjoy the perks, the 'double dip' program I intend to launch with it, and best of all, the lovingly designed sets I have paired together complete with super fun, beautiful, and functional foiled stickers!
Speaking of STICKERS and NEW -- expect to see a few foiled beauties popping into the shop in November -- having grown up on stickers, this is literally a dream come true and I am giddy beyond belief to share them with you all!
As you can see, that's a lot of NEW! Thanks for sticking with me (no pun intended!) and I can't wait to see everything take flight!
