Business Established:: 2002
What they do:: Scrappy Notes began in 2002 at my kitchen table with some paints, paper and a lot of creativity. With a desire to help supplement our income, I started designing notepads, cards, stationery and more for friends and family to buy. My ideas and artwork continued to expand as requests for more products and graphics poured in. Much to my surprise, in less than a year Scrappy Notes was born.
How she finds balance:: Working from home while raising four little (getting bigger by the moment) little boys has forced me to organize my time MUCH more efficiently. When I’m doing activities with my boys I try really hard to be present with them, vice versa when it comes to work. I have found combining the two can sometimes work great if I employ them by having them stuff envelopes, sticker, fold, count etc. They love the involvement, extra money, and to be busy.
Her best advice:: My advice would be to learn as you go and not get overwhelmed, just take it a little bit at a time and things will happen. With children, they HAVE to come first and you can adjust as they grow and their schedule changes – that’s the beauty of having your own business!
