Gift to Self aka Creative Entrepreneur

A year ago I bought myself a Christmas present- a seat to a 2-day seminar called Paper Camp. Little did I know that that was to be the greatest present I could give myself to date.

Attending it has paved a clear path for me as a creative entrepreneur giving me more confidence with each stride as I made the leap from a hobbyist to a professional. After the seminar, I left feeling a mix of emotions at first. I was overwhelmed by the amount of work it would take me and the many mistakes I have been unknowingly making! I was forced to lay all my cards on the table and decide if I was in it for the long haul or not. I spent a good amount of time soul-searching and asking myself if this was where my heart lies and if it was then I needed to give it all I've got.

Fast forward, I am a few months shy to releasing my first wholesale catalog (Spring 2017!) and part of a community of amazing creative entrepreneurs ready to give each other a hand. I am grateful for every one of them and most especially to Katie Lawler Hunt for founding this wonderful paper-loving bunch.

If you're in the business of Stationery, wedding invites or want to sell your illustrations in a wholesale setting consider attending the next Paper Camp (February 2017). I promise you it's the best investment for you and your craft!
