I did it! Today I announced the sale of Create My Keepsake along with the announcement about my new business venture called Pink Paislee! If you are interested in reading the post about the sale of CMK you can access it here.
A year or so ago my husband and I felt a very strong tug in our hearts to launch a manufacturing company. My husband has over 23 years of experience in manufacturing and production so it really seemed natural to follow this course. After a few months the pieces began to fall into place (what I mean is…. I finally convinced Holly to join me) and now my husband and I are very excited to move forward with our plans to start our own manufacturing company.
Our new company is called Pink Paislee, LLC and we will be developing our own line of papers, alphabets, die cuts, and a few other things I can’t reveal at the moment! Our goal is to attend the CHA Winter 2008 show and reveal our products to everyone during this event.
I am also happy to publicly announce that we will be featuring products designed exclusively by Holly McCaig Designs. As you may or may not know Holly was heavily involved in the digital scrapbook community designing products for the digital scrapper and she served on the inaugural creative board for Digital Scrapbook Magazine (a branch of Simple Scrapbooks). Holly has also designed products for Bo Bunny Press in the past and I am beyond thrilled to be able to work with her and to turn her creative visions into products that we can all create with.
Pink Paislee will also be absorbing the Pink.Sugar.Pop line of stamps and those designs will be reworked and branded under our new packaging. We are also developing new designs to coordinate with our new paper collections so you will have even more great stamp choices from Holly!
Our website address is http://www.pinkpaislee.com and although it is not live yet we hope to have the splash page up in a few days with an email registration so that you can be notified when the website is live!
If you wish to follow along with our progress you can always visit my personal blog Just Punky or Hollys blog All Things Pink until we have our Pink Paislee website and blog in place.
I am nervous and excited to be taking this step in the industry but I would be lying if I said I wasn’t looking forward to this new adventure!
