Hi there! Amy here.
I originally started selling stationery on Instagram back in 2014 under the name @amymakesthingsshop. The shop soon moved to Etsy where it's been happy ever since! I took a break from selling stationery last year to make more time for 'adulting' but now I'm a full-time creative, stationery addict and shop owner. Yippee!
Stationery has always got me super excited! Ever since I was a little girl, I loved nothing more than selecting stickers, note paper and pencils from my own stash and packaging them up as gifts for my friends. Sending packages of adorable stationery has been a life long passion of mine! I started the shop in 2014 as I wanted to share my favourite hand-selected stationery items with others and offer them at an affordable price. Although I knew of some online shops which sold the sort of products I loved, most were overseas which prompted me to start Amy Makes Things here in the UK.
Our vision for the future? More handmade items, for starters. The 'makes' in Amy MAKES Things is there for a reason. It was initially my intention to offer more hand crafted pieces, some of which you'll see finding their way into the shop towards the end of 2016.
You can still find us on Instagram at @amymakesthingsshop where I share product updates, sneaks and discount codes. I also share scrapbooking and paper-craft projects at @amychallisuk and amychallis.com. If you pop by, do say hello!
Much love! ♥
