Hello there! First of all, thank you for visiting The Polka Paperie blog, it’s lovely to have you here. I’m really excited about finally setting up this website, although very much a work-in-progress as I sit here writing, it’s been on my to-do list for such a long time. But as my thoughts turn to the end of the year, and my plans for 2016, it’s time to launch despite being far faaar from ready! I’m a believer a the “Just Start” kind of ethos, I’ll build the website as I go along and try not to have things look too messy while it’s happening!
So here we are! The Polka Paperie is actually 12 months old already, and it’s been a really great fledgling year for this little business. This past month, I was delighted to see one of our products – gold glittery washi tape – featured as part of an amazingly beautiful styled shoot in December’s Living Etc magazine. I honestly never thought things like this would happen, certainly to a business in its infancy, it’s a delightful surprise and I feel hugely grateful.
Isn’t it pretty? I love love love grey – especially wintery, Christmassy greys, so I was really excited to see this shoot. In fact, I love all things grey and christmas-related, I have a whole Pinterest board devoted to it!
I mentioned I have lots of plans for 2016 and beyond, and I really do – I plan to significantly expand my range of products over the coming 12-18 months; really embrace social media (particularly Instagram, which I’m hopelessly addicted to) and also to give something back in for form of sales & discounts for loyal customers. So, please consider following this blog and my Instagram adventures (for behind the scenes & sneak peeks), and sign-up for newsletter updates (discount codes!) to keep apace of all things Polka!
