Behind the Scenes || 07

Happy 2016! The past couple of months have been a whirlwind. When you are a small business owner and the end of the year is filled with controlled chaos, you can be thankful for the publicity, orders, amazing customers, and collaborations.

I am so happy with the growing list of makers we are working with to stock the very best handmade goods in our online shop. Look for more goods to start arriving in early spring and a new offering of curated boxes for all your gift giving needs.

I am so grateful for all the support you showed me and my little business during the gift giving season. I can genuinely say I loved packaging each and every box before sending them around the county! I also loved being able to deliver orders with my girls in our bike. Thankful to live in such a great neighborhood within a very supportive community...who love to shop small!

Speaking of support, we were excited to be included a local paper's holiday shopping guide and an independent hardware store's handmade holiday market. I am looking forward to doing more with Logan Hardware in 2016 - they certainly have a small business model I want to emulate. 

And just like that, a new year is here. January is always the perfect time to think and plan which is why I am heading to a creative retreat near the end of the month. In addition to learning a whole lot from some pretty talented ladies, I am excited to spend some quality solo time thoughtfully planning the year ahead. In the Spring I'll be attending my first conference as a small business owner in Charleston, SC! And stay tuned for details regarding my latest focus, Studio Pixie - a modern crafting experience!
