Hi Jenny, let me start by saying that I love, love, love your stickers. So, let’s start this chat.
Can you tell me a bit about yourself?
I am a born Miami (Cuban girl) Who loves her Seminoles! I am a stay at home mom, with one little boy and two lab dog babies. I was originally on a career path that I loved every minute of. I was a safety manager for a renewable energy company that built wind turbine parks across the US. My husband is still in the renewable energy sector! I miss my job but I like my new adventure.
How and why did you start making stickers (tell me about your journey in planner/stickersville)?
I actually started making stickers for myself because I had purchased a ECLP and really could not make it work for me. I stumbled across some IG accounts with awesome layouts and I already had a cameo because I do some vinyl orders and I just started experimenting!
What inspires you?
I have always been a crafty person so I love seeing people use my products and love them! I feel better when I am creating!
What can someone find at your Etsy store?
Right now in the shop we have lots of “pre cut” washi as well as samples and a wide variety of planner accessories such as stickers, tassels and planner bands. I also offer really cute planner buddy kits that are a surprise combination each time!
If you could turn back time to the day you opened your store, what advice would you give yourself? Any top tips?
I did not start on etsy with planner related items, my shop evolved that way. I would tell myself not to give up ! It took me a full year and then a little to get up over 1,000 orders and lots of trial and error to see what worked best ! I do wish I would have fallen into the planner world much sooner 🙂
OK, so, now let’s move on to planning. How do you plan?
I am the WORST planner, I need to plan when I do plan I feel better and I get more done! It is making the time to plan that gets me. I use lots of stickers but I also leave lots of white space, I am not one to cover every inch of white space. I like to put sticky notes on future dates so that I do not forget stuff, but I really do most of my planning on a day-to-day basis.
