If you follow me on Instagram — you might have seen in my IG Stories a few sneak peeks of a little something that I’ve been working on. ;)
For a while now I was dreaming up the idea of opening a little online shop where I can design some pretty little things to share with the world. Currently thinking of some pretty mugs, tote bags, and notebooks (cause you all know how obsessed I am with notebooks!).
So after a lot of back and forth (all happening in my head) I decided to put the idea out there. Mainly because if I wouldn’t actually tell anyone, then I could just pretend it never existed and not do it.
I started by telling just a few people about the idea and they all seemed so excited about it and gave me the encouragement that I needed to start designing the products.
So I started planning and creating. The entire process has been so much fun…but a little scary as well. My mind always lets doubt creep in a bit and starts questioning everything I’m doing…
“While anyone actually buy my designs?”
“Who do you think you are opening a shop?”
“Remember all the stuff you designed? People will hate it.”
Its frustrating because when the doubt starts talking in my mind, I then start to think I should just stop and remove all evidence that I ever mentioned opening a shop.
And this is where having supportive and amazing people around you comes into play. Everyone around me has been so encouraging and supportive when I’ve talked about the idea and showed them my new designs. Hearing the “oh how pretty!” and “you will do awesome” really helps all the doubt leave my mind and only allow for the positive goodness to take its place.
The official launch date for the new shop will be June 4th (this Wednesday!!) and I can’t wait! Currently if you visit the shop, you can sign up to the mailing list and receive a little coupon code on opening day!

I hope you all enjoy all the pretty things that will be on there soon!
Make sure to visit on opening day. ;)
