Trust The Journey

Trust The Journey

In 2009 when I started crafting at my kitchen table, I had no idea what the future would hold. I was just trying to do something fun and creative and cross a few gifts off my Christmas list. Within a few weeks I had opened a shop on Etsy and was selling my signs to people from all over the world. I was on a journey and even though I didn’t know where I was going, I knew that I had to go. 


I was momming by day, and painting by night, often working until 3 in the morning to fill my ord ers. I was fueled by creativity and coffee. Lots and lots of coffee. In 2014, my husband Sean left his corporate job and jumped in to help me grow BOP.  And to help me get to sleep before midnight. Everyone thought we were crazy. But we were creating a brand, and a life style and what we loved most was that we were doing it together. Even when we drove each other a little crazy. 


In 2016, our friend Gregg, who was intrigued by our journey, decided to jump on board. Like us, Gregg is a maker. A problem solver. A creator. Together, the three of us have joined forces and worked hard to improve our processes, reduce our shipping times and develop unique, new products using lots of innovative technology.  And coffee fueled creativity.  

 
This week we are taking the next step.  A big step.  A leaf of faith.   We are traveling to Atlanta to share our products and our story at Americas Mart. We are hopeful that the wholesale buyers we meet will love our hand made, made in America products. We can’t wait to make new friends and have them join us on our journey.   And we can't wait for our products to be offered in boutiques and gift shops across the country, bringing us closer to each of you!


Thank you for being such an important part of our journey. We wouldn’t be where we are and who we are today without you!   If you are the praying type, could you say a little prayer for us.  If you are the wishing type, could you send us some good wishes.  If you are the vibing type, could you send us some positive vibes!  Thank you for all your love and support! 


And if you are lucky enough to be at Americas Mart this week, please stop by so I can give you a big hug!

Kristi, We are so very happy for you guys. We have been supporters of yours since we won one of your “You are my Sunshine” pieces in a preschool auction several years ago. We have since added eight additional pieces. We hope that all yours dreams come true and that you can spread your magic to the masses. Best wishes always.
