- LBPS is not going away. Instead, I am scaling back big time, restructuring, and getting back to the heart of what I have wanted to do since college, and focusing on design in my "spare" time.
- For this season of life, we are saying goodbye to the physical inventory side of the business. All inventory will be sold throughout the summer and will not be restocked. This includes Hope Cards, I Do Cards, Promise Cards, Truth Trainers, Hope Journals, Prints, etc.
- Effective NOW, all physical products on our website (and Etsy) are marked down because everything must go. As of now, I don't know when these products will be brought back, so now is your time to grab Hope Cards, Truth Trainers, etc, before they are gone. The website will be closed on August 31.
What WILL we be selling? Since college I have dreamed of running a stationery shop that sold wedding invitations, party invites, etc. While I don't promote it much, my Etsy shop is stocked with digital invitations and digital party downloads that generate consistent income without the hustle of selling inventory, and takes significantly less time to operate. I am going to focus my "work" attention on stocking my Etsy shop with designs, as well as taking custom jobs (as time allows). https://www.etsy.com/shop/littlebluepapershop
LBPS has been a dream (like I said, since college) and I love that I have a way to use my passions and giftings to bless my family as well as those who have purchased from me. There may be a day when time and life allows for this business to grow at the rate it was growing, but for now, I have an absolute peace (and excitement) about scaling down for a season. Keeping up with social media trends, when to post, when not to post, how to caption, how to hastag...y'all...it's exhausting...but seriously necessary to sell product. Not even kidding. When I post "like I should", sales go up. When I slack off, they go down. My mama heart needs a break and is excited to read about new recipes to cook for my family rather than articles on if Insta stories are beneficial for business growth. I'm excited to design because I love it, not because business growth requires it. But don't worry, you'll still see the invitations and suites I'm working on pop up on social media from time to time, and I hope you'll keep me in mind for party invites when you need them!
I'm so thankful for all of you who have cheered me on as a mom with a growing business, and I know you'll be just as supportive of a mama with an Etsy shop.
