Our Planners - From Humble Beginnings

Our planners are one of newest products, and while they’re frequently evolving, I feel like we’ve finally really nailed down the basics of them. But, it’s taken SO MUCH blood, sweat, and tears to get to this point. I cannot express how proud I am of our planners. We’ve come so far and I feel like our planners can stand up against the big names not only in terms of looks, but the features and layouts can’t be found anywhere else. I have always loved planners and stationary but would’ve never thought that I could create my own.

Help, Part 2! Meet Amber's Sister!

Help, Part 2! Meet Amber's Sister!

As Lindsay mentioned in her latest blog, we have taken on the help of our sisters so that we can continue to grow our business. We are super excited because we need the help, we love (and trust) our sisters, and because we can still proudly say that we are a mom-owned and operated business! We had really hoped that 2018 would be the year that we fine-tuned what we already have so that we can be more confident in making new products, and hopefully more financially successful in the coming years. We have done a bit of fine-tuning already,...

We started by hiring a CPA (also a small-business owning mother) to help get our finances in order, because duh. But we still needed help with other aspects of the biz.

What Happens When We Get An Order

Hey all! Happy September! I wanted to give you all a quick step-by-step look at what happens when we get an online order. I don’t know what it looks like for big businesses, Amazon warehouses would probably BLOW. MY. MIND! But this is what it looks like for our small, mom-owned business! Enjoy! First, we get a fancy little ding on our phones and/or iPads to let us know we got new goodies to send out. Depending on what it is, Lindsay and myself split up who’s responsibility the order is. Part of how we divide up who gets what...

10 (interesting?) Things about Lindsay

Hi all! We’ve gained a lot of new followers, and because Amber shared some fun information last post, I figured I would share a little more about myself, too! We’ll see if you find it interesting or not! Ha! I’ve lived in Washington since I was 2 and grew up with my mom, dad, and sister. My sister is 3 years old, and we’re best friends. Our kids are within 2 years of each other, too, so that makes it even more fun.  My husband and I just celebrated our 9-year wedding anniversary, after 2 years of dating. I met...
