_______________________________________________________________________________________________________

Hello there, I'm Shalana, the business owner... and I wear a lot of hats in my household. I'm a wife, mom, crafty gal, eclectic solopreneur, previously published author and editor, and most recently, I had the crazy idea to start my own tiny (buy mighty!) publishing business.

I currently design and produce my own line of spiral bound hobby and religious journals full-time in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. My husband, Stephen, volunteers to lend a helping hand with book assembly and shipping orders as well as lots of encouragement and pep talks (needed daily!). I do my best to responsibly source materials primarily from other U.S. based companies when at all possible (lots of my paper is manufactured right here in Wisconsin!). I also focus diligently on quality over quantity, putting my own personal touch on every journal from its original design to the final production and shipping. Please get in touch if you have any questions.

ETSY SHOPS INFO & DISCLOSURES:

I am an avid crafter and have had a shop on Etsy since 2006 - almost from its very beginning! My first shop was The Funky Felter (at etsy.com/shop/thefunkyfelter), specializing in traditionally hand-felted wool products (I'm a fiber artist at heart!). I had a lot of success with online sales as well as traveling to craft shows nationwide. This shop is my second Etsy endeavor and was previously called simply "Shalana" where I sold my graphic design creations including tag/label digital downloads. This shop has since been re-branded in the Fall of 2020 for my publishing business to sell my line of spiral bound journals. Rest assured, I am a seasoned online seller with excellent customer ratings. Please feel free to message me with any questions.
