2018: Significant 9

  1. Continued wholesaling to new brick & mortar stores— we're now in 14 states across the US! 
  2. Launched custom stamps and our first giveaway, with over 600 entries (!! still floored by that one)
  3. Took a VERY large leap of faith and committed to my first trade show, National Stationery Show, 6 weeks before it would take place across the country in NYC (and spent 2 of those weeks traveling overseas...)
  4. Discovered and participated in both seasons of The Handmade Pop-Up 2018— found a community of supportive, talented makers and came away with some goodies for our home :) 
  5. Got to go to Asia not once but twice this year— so inspired both trips by all the cute and well designed stationery products everywhere.
  6. Launched FOUR new product categories: stamps, letter sets, gift tags, and notepads.
  7. Finally had more time (after my crazy new marriage/remodel/ house/job last year) to go to more craft fairs and participated in six craft fairs & pop ups: Renegade SF, SF Etsy Holiday Emporium, Nest Pop Up, Google Pop Up, Marker's Market Santana Row, Maker's Market San Pedro. 
  8. Increasingly invested (and enjoying!) my new job I started at the beginning of the year— learning and being stretched so much.
  9. Mad, mad scramble to organize my biggest wholesale order ever, at 65lbs worth of cards!
