New shop!

It’s no secret that I am a paper obsessed and a sucker for pretty stationery.  Since I was a young girl I was always excited to get new pens, paper, loved back to school shopping, enjoyed writing letters to friends and pen pals, loved looking and reading through the many greeting cards in stores, and scrapbooking eeeek.  One of the best jobs by far I had was working in a scrapbooking store.  My stationery obsession continued when I got older and I found myself creating my own stationery, first designing and creating invitations for my nursing graduation and then my very own wedding invitations.  I kept getting great feedback and one day Renan and I were sitting and thinking, what if I opened up my own business creating wedding invites?  So thats exactly what I did.  I had just graduated from psychiatric nursing and as excited as I was to start my career I still felt the NEED to fulfill my creative itch.  So I opened up the a wedding invitation business called RED (Real Engaging Designs) primarily focused on wedding invites.  The business quickly expanded to creating custom thank you cards, baby announcements, birthday invitations and corporate events.  This all of course could not have been possible without the help of my incredible business partner Gabi.  As the business grew to include over 50 retailers carrying our products as well as introducing new products such as greeting cards and prints, so did both of our families and having 5 young kiddos between Gabi and I, it came to a point where I had to walk away.  Gabi still runs the business, now  called RED Paper Boutique which also includes other products such as pencils, notepads and wine tags.  Way to kick ass Gabi 🙂

Now here we are about a year a half later since walking away from RED and I again feel the need to remain creative… I have continued to take on freelance design work, and continued to design stationery of my very own, but on a smaller scale.  So today I am so excited to announce the launch of my online shop that currently has a small collection of prints and customizable birth details I have created.   This, I feel being more manageable working out of my whopping 48 square foot home office, good old MacBook Pro and biggest essential being my hubby Ren.  I owe BIG BIG kudos to Renan for being the brains and tech guy behind making this whole blog and dream of mine having a little online shop possible…

Hope you enjoy and happy shopping!
