I spent the first 15 years of my career life as an administrative assistant (so I’m organized and can manage a task list like it’s nobody’s business). Then I went back to college and started a new career as a graphic designer (so I’m creative and can manage a brand like a boss). Add to the mix the dozens of clients I’ve helped to build their small businesses from the ground up (from logo and business cards to websites and social media)…and you’ve got the perfect combination of skills to be a kick-ass blogger.
I’m an analog girl living in a digital world. So it only makes sense that I would find a way to leverage that digital sphere to allow me to play with paper, markers, and Post-It Notes. I’ve been obsessed with stationery goodies, back-to-school supplies, office products, notebooks, paper, pens and paperclips for as long as I can remember. I probably own too many fountain pens, too many notebooks, and too many art supplies. But I’m OK with that. I’m comfortable in my nerdiness and my obsessive collection of all the stationery supplies I can amass.
And if you’ve ever wondered how to remember the correct spelling of stationery vs. stationary – I’d be happy to teach you the trick!
