These last few months have been a crazy ride. One morning, I decided I was going to make my own exclusive washi tape designs, and that’s it. But the more I researched and planned, the bigger it grew, and it eventually lead to building an online shop. I had to learn how to build a website, and educated myself on marketing and SEO, I had to learn about packaging and shipping… just all sorts of things that came with this e-commerce beast I was tackling. I can say that as much as it has been challenging, it has been a blast, and I feel so accomplished. I did always dream of having my own stationery store one day, but I never really planned when or how, so this definitely snuck up out of nowhere! 😀 A good accident, I suppose!
I am very much looking forward to the rest of this wonderful adventure. I still have a lot to learn, and it is teaching me how to be patient since I wish I could just know all that I need to know now. If you have been through this before and can give me any tips, I’d love to gain some insight – I’m always open to learning!

Incorporating creative ideas into your projects doesn’t need to be expensive. I remember the first time I saw foiling and it made me feel so sad to see that I had to have a fancy laser printer and heat tool or laminator. I thought, “UGH… how do I afford one of these?!”. It made me […]
