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 crafter, blogger and business owner?
I have been into all things creative my entire life from photography, scrapbooking, crafting and planning. My journey with Chic Planner Girl however, began when discovered the “Planner Addict World” in 2015. Who knew there was so many others who loved to plan and play with stationery as much as I did.
What made you decide to pursue your crafting business?
When I realized how many others enjoyed what I enjoyed most and I realized that me sharing it could make someone else smile is when I knew I had to pursue share my crafty exploring side with everyone else.
What is the best part of being a crafter and business owner?
Being able to create beautiful things then capture them in photos has been a true blessing not only do I get to reflect on what I have made and be proud of it but I get to share it with others who appreciate it and will get inspired by it.
What impact do you want your business to have on others?
I want other busy moms to know all is possible and to be ambitious and follow their dreams just the way I have been.
What advice do you have to other women who are thinking of starting their own businesses?
Go out there and do what you love most and do it with a smile!! Never give up on your dreams or think it is not possible because it is all possible. Even by starting off with baby steps one day you will be running and you will get there.
Which of your business achievements are you most proud of and why?
Being able to say I started a small shop all on my own with no help has been one of my biggest achievements because I did not give up and just pushed to learn everything on my own.
What kind of camera(s) do you own and what role does it play in your life?
I own a Cannon Rebel 3Ti and it is perfect for shooting all of the style pictures I do from desk stationed photos to action pictures of my boys. I also use my IPhone 7 plus on the go and the camera capabilities are beyond expected from such a small gadget.
What’s your favorite thing about your bluebird chic strap?
I absolutely love my light blue birch bark floral strap! Not only does it have a beautiful floral print, which are my favorite, but the colors are so vibrant and happy. I love florals and colorful things so this strap definitely screams my name.
It is so hard to just pick one thing because I love everything about it! However, the comfort and the print choices have to be my absolute favorite.
