Happy New Year! I am beyond excited about all the possibilities that the new year brings. But before I dive in head-first, I must celebrate the amazing year that was 2018. Take a stroll with me down memory lane while I recap the best of 2018!
I was not ready to launch the party shop yet. So, while I did research on the best platform for my new e-commerce store, I launched our Sales Page. Mermaid party packages were offered for parties with 8, 16 and 24 guests.
I was featured on my very first podcast! It was so exciting to be on Episode 1 of the Get Found Get Funded Podcast. We discussed the best ways to reach more people and the passion that drove me to start my very own line of party supplies. Click here to listen.
Scary Mommy wrote an article about my Kickstarter campaign in 2017. So imagine my surprise when they contacted me for a second feature? This time it was for a mini-film! They’re production team basically lived with us for 2 days and captured the essence of Craft My Occasion. You can view the final product below!
This month was also my first time having my work featured in print! It was an honor and a privilege to be a Guest Contributor for Twinkle Twinkle Little Party Magazine. I really enjoyed creating content for the Spring 2018 Issue and I am looking forward to being a contributor again in the future!
July was a HUGE month because we finally launched our beautiful party shop! It was surreal to see my dream actually manifest into reality. I knew there was no turning back! During the shop launch, I also added new products to the Mermaid Collection. Party invitations, thank you cards and the cutest shirts made their debut. It was definitely a proud mama moment.
The Craft My Occasion Wholesale Program became available for party retailers. Now, party professionals have the opportunity to stock our products and make them available to their customers. This initiative is near and dear to my heart because it means that we reach even more families and children of color. Send me an email if you would like to become a retail partner. I would love to work with you!
This was another HUGE month. We added 2 new collections to our party products and 1 of them is for boys. Finally! I appreciate the boy moms being so patient with me. But the wait is over. We now have Superboy and Supergirl collections and we can celebrate all of the little superheroes in your life! In addition, we released the most adorable plush mermaid dolls which are perfect for gift giving.
2018 has definitely been a year to remember. It was a year of many firsts and I enjoyed all of the learning and growing that each new experience provided. I am looking forward to the amazing year that 2019 will certainly be. Thank you so much for joining me on this super fun journey.
Wishing you joy and abundance all year long!
