Recently we were approached by my alma mater to be featured on their updated website in a brand new section highlighting successful ventures of graduates. So cool! So I said yes immediately, and it wasn't till sobering up from all the flattery that I realized what I had gotten myself into! It wasn't long until the crippling panic set in. I started worrying about how my business would look, how I would be perceived. I was even worried there wouldn't be enough to write about. But after welcoming Amy and Eric into our little studio, I quickly came to realize that all the worrying and second guessing was completely silly and unfounded.
Sometimes we need to see ourselves through the eyes strangers. It's one thing to be proud of yourself and understand how far you have come, but it's a whole other thing having the perspective of an outsider writing about your journey, and the various ups and downs along the way, to give you a better perspective on things. I mean, I know what I have done to make this business what it is today, but sometimes you get bogged down in the minutia of the day to day and it takes someone else to give you a deserved pat on the back. This feature was a blessing in disguise. I knew it would be good for the business, but I had no idea how much I needed it, personally. Needless to say, they did an amazing job with the article and the video. It surpassed all my expectations and I hope you enjoy getting to know us a little better!
So if you have a few minutes please go check out the article. If 6o seconds is all you got, then check out this adorable video below!

The National Stationery Show, for those of you who are new to the industry, is THE show for all things paper. Every May the stationery community descends upon Manhattan to make the Javits Center its temporary home for 4 days of total stationery bliss. And while most of us will spend months in preparation for just a few days of excitement, I think most stationers would agree that it is definitely worth all the blood, sweat and tears that go into making a show like this possible!
But that's not the entire story...
