Hi There! My I am Addy, founder of Chic Planner Girl and love all things crafty. I am a mother to three energetic boys who keep me on my toes and make life that much sweeter. When I am not working on blogging you can find me at the park, gym, Disneyland or just spending time with my family and friends over coffee and most of all taking pictures of all the action and memories.
How long have you been a crafty business owner?
I have been into all things crafty and photography ever since I can remember. I use to buy the disposable cameras when I was a kid and when I got a little older got to get a few battery cameras. I remember taking a photography class in high school and really taking an appreciation for it and with my planning hobby and business taking good pictures is key to express your work and your self.
What is the best part of being a being a planner girl/ photographer/ crafter?
The best part is that I absolutely love it and always dreamed that I could work somewhere where I loved what I was doing and be able to use my creative side. I get to do this on a daily basis and for that i am very grateful and is the best part.
How has your hobby turned business evolved over the years?
This all started as a hobby for my since I was a kid. I have been able to run my own small stationery planner accessory store, work with many stationary/ planner companies that I love, be a teacher an enthusiast for what I love to do. I work with Prima Marketing Inc. as my day to day job which allows me to play with so many stationery product, take pictures and video of this items all along while I continue to run Chic Planner Girl where I get to inspire others and really express my love for planners, crafting and photography.
What made you decide to pursue your crafty business?
I started pursuing planners in particular in 2014 when I realized this was a community that was growing and it was something I was using for many years already why not explore the options. This has been both a hobby and business for me and I absolutely love it.
What impact do you want your business to have on others?
I hope that with everything I do with planning, photography, and crafting in general I can inspire others to use their creative side, to not be afraid of expressing their creativity side and to share it with other.
What’s your favorite thing about your bluebird chic strap?
I absolutely love the bright colors of this strap along with the floral print. I am definitely a big floral girl so I knew I had to have this strap when I saw it.
I love everything about my strap however if i had to choose one thing is how light weight it is, the material is so flexible making it very comfortable to wear as well as move around on m camera stand when needing to prop my camera.
