I have been SO excited about our “Big Reveal” and what’s behind it…I can’t even tell you! First for the big surprise…then a little back-story for those of you who love the “details” in things.
MONOGRAMS are BACK!
Yep. You got it. We are crazy. We are going to be offering Monograms on as many things as we can! Clothing, Gifts and More! Just in time for Christmas shopping! Who doesn’t LOVE a monogram? I know I do!
Now, a little back-story for you if you haven’t been with us since the wee early days.I started this business in 2007, in my one bedroom apartment. I was a teacher by day…working night-owl by night. When I got married, it moved into my husband’s extra garage. Big move…believe it or not. At that time I wasn’t selling Women’s Clothing..it was ALL custom. Towel Wraps, Return Address Stamps, Custom Plates and Place-mats, Monogrammed Backpacks and Lunchboxes…you name it. I was the sole employee and I did it all. I worked A LOT and I had no kids at that time…it was doable.
Cut to 2012. I was working from home and had a baby. I started doing twice weekly Facebook sales. Yes I know, what store DOESN’T do that now?! That’s what you’re thinking, right? Well, back then…not many did. We “got in” early. Business EXPLODED. We started carrying women’s clothing and within two years we moved into a warehouse. Then another warehouse. Then built a store. Then a house. Then added on another baby…this time one that had a multitude of medical needs and required round-the-clock care. It was a BUSY two years. Around late 2014, we stopped offering our Monogrammed items. It was just TOO much. I honestly just didn’t have the time, and we were (and are) still a fairly small company.
Cut to 2016. We still have that store and we added yet ANOTHER baby in August. (Yes I am tired. Yes I am crazy. But BOY am I blessed)! Here’s the thing…I MISS the monograms! All of it! I enjoy using my “creative brain” and the rest was becoming “work”. I NEEDED it all to come back. I design every plate and place-mat myself, and I LOVE IT! I design the Gift Tags and the Calling Cards. The Clipboards and the gifts. I love finding new great lines to offer, like our PSA Essential Stamps we brought back and a great new line..Boulevard. (You will LOVE their bags and accessories!) I MISSED Moon and Lola and the stunning monogram necklaces. I missed the custom Otterbox Cases…(those will go live next week). We love our Drink-ware with Monograms and our gorgeous Stationery. It’s ALL coming back! Well…almost all….
That brings me to my beloved Towel Wraps. The baby that started it all! We WILL bring those back. I PROMISE you…we will bring them back. I would be nothing today without my precious wraps..ha! But here is the skinny on that….those suckers take some time. Mama doesn’t have the time to sit at a sewing machine like I used to. (Oh the good ole days…working in my garage til 3am with Dr.Pepper and Lifetime movies and no babies waking me up). Okay, okay…the babies are worth it. But…no time for towel wraps just yet. Once I find someone who has the skill and time to make those for us…they will be BACK! Promise!
So, we hope you will love all of our “new” items! Great gifts, Stationery, Drink-ware, Dinnerware, School Essentials, Monogrammed Clothing and Accessories…all of it!
