About

I started selling fish-themed greeting cards

Yeah, I did that. In 2008 I got a batch of sixty fish-themed christmas cards printed by a local printer and forced my family and friends to buy them. I thought they were funny.

After a while I didn't need to force people to buy them - people started buying them on their own, which was surprising.

With the cash I made from each batch of cards, I placed larger orders of cards, introducing new designs each time. And with each batch I ordered, I was equally as surprised at how I had sold all of the previous batch.

Some designs were terrible, and some were not so terrible. I liked most of them, and my printer probably thinks I'm absolutely bonkers.

It went much like that, really. I quit my day job in 2011, got married in 2013, had a daughter in 2014 and bought a house in 2015. Our happy family lives in South Manchester and I do my best at juggling being a mom and running a business. It works most of the time and I owe etsy a big thank you for helping me get where I am now - sharing work and hobby and motherhood as one.
