Thank you 2015 & Hello 2016! – Our Year Review

HAPPY 2016!!! Thank you for all your LOVE & SUPPORT in 2015! We had an awesome year and had achieved lots of milestones! We will continue to grow and spread the love in 2016!

Here’s a review of 2015 –

West Elm Collaboration – I had the honor to design a tote bag for West Elm Calgary store grand opening. It turned out super awesome and since they only printed a limited number of totes, it was a great hit and I was glad that I could keep a couple!

I was also invited to display some of my stationery products at the West Elm store as part of their awesome program called West Elm Local; which also made our first available retail location in Calgary! I couldn’t even describe how happy I was! Thank you West Elm!

Getting back to local craft show – – I took a two-year break from participating any art & craft shows, and I finally decided I should get back to one for better brand exposure, so I partnered with one of the local designers I met at West Elm Local, Tiffany who founded Rural Creative, and we applied for Market Collective Christmas Market together. Lots of sleepless nights making papercut Christmas cards, preparing the show and packaging products, but With my fiancé’s help and Tiffany’s awesome wall decos and signs, our table drew lots of attentions and it was a great success! Thank you YYC!

These are the great highlights of our 2015, we can’t wait for 2016 and there will be more products releasing; more local shows we will be joining; and for sure more love spreading! Thank you so much again every one of you and HAVE A GREAT, SUPER AWESOME 2016!!

Happy Christmas & Byebye 2014!

Can’t believe it’s close to the end of 2014! It has been one of the most stressful year to me – moving to another city, starting another job, and finding a perfect home, etc. Now, I believe it’s finally the time for me to get back to The Paper Lover Co. With more collaborations and opportunities coming in, 2015 is going to be a turning point for me to re-focus on my business and create more inspirational pieces. With all the new ideas in mind, I am ready to face the new upcoming challenges!

I am going to continuously update the site and create more samples in the next couple weeks. I also got an invitation to collaborate with West Elm and a wedding photographer friend of mine next year. 2015 is going to be GREAT and I am sure yours will be too!

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

With lots of LOVE,
