Exciting News for 2010!

I can't believe it, but 2010 is literally just around the corner! My, how fast 2009 went by! And what a great year it was. I "met" many of you lovely folks, who have made me laugh, pushed me through the busy times, and inspired me on a daily basis! I participated in my first Richmond Handmade Holiday - a juried, local show. I began selling on Etsy in March and already have 90 sales! I can't wait to reach the 100 mark and beyond in 2010. And more importantly, I cannot wait to see what amazing offerings all you talented sellers come up with this year! It's going to be a great one, isn't it?

Now for some exciting news that I pondered for probably the entire last quarter of 2009....
This year has made me realize just how passionate I am about designing, creativity, and stationery. That being said, I decided to take my business to the next level. In May of 2010 I will be participating in the National Stationery Show in New York City! It still gives me goose bumps to say it! I spent many hours on the phone with the lovely Kelly, a sales manager of the show. While I am quite nervous to say the least, I am also extremely excited about the opportunities that abound for 2010. I certainly have my work cut out for me, but I couldn't be more excited about it!

In addition, I'll be adding some new products early this year (starting this weekend!) and throughout the year. I'll be adding some new products for the bride, children, and general stationery lines. Here is just a hint of some new items I will be offering this year!

And be sure to check out my shop throughout the new year weekend, as I will be adding new products daily! And, this weekend only (now through January 3, 2010) I'm offering 10% off with the code BLOGBDAY for my birthday weekend! You can purchase and wait for a refund, or convo me with the items you'd like to purchase and I will revise the listing for you!

Happy New Year to all of you!
