Hellooo internet! I feel like I’ve been away from the blog for an eternity. It has been 19 months since I wrote my last post… which, I suppose in internet years actually is an eternity. Thanks goodness for Candice who has been holding down the fort in my absence! This year my goal is to be more present in this space. I doubt I’ll be posting every week but I do want to share a bit more of what’s been happening behind the scenes of this small biz.
So much has changed since that last post I wrote back in June of 2014. Things have been a bit of a whirlwind since launching my wholesale line at the National Stationery Show that year and I’ve learned so much and made so many new discoveries along the way. I absolutely love the creative freedom of designing new products and this newfound freedom has sparked the biggest change I think I’ll make in 2016: I’ve decided to discontinue my wedding invitation line as of this Spring. I will continue to carry non-personalized wedding accessories (like cocktail napkins) but wedding stationery will no longer be available after April, 2016.
I’ve been designing wedding invitations for just over 10 years and it has been wonderful to share a tiny part in so many couples’ lives over the past decade but it’s time for change. As my personal interests have shifted, I think it’s a natural evolution for my business interests to shift as well and the great thing about being a small business is having the flexibility to pivot.
I have a head full of projects and ideas I’d like to explore this year and I’m so excited about all the possibilities! Although remaining on the same path can be comfortable (in both life and in business), growth does not often occur within that comfort zone. Change is necessary, change is good… and I’m ready to embrace it.
