oh, hello friend
Congratulations Cheryl! You have won a set stationery goodies from oh, hello friend!
Who are you and what do you do?
My name is Danni and I’m the owner/designer/maker at oh, hello friend. I like the rain, vintage/antique shopping & collecting, and traveling. I love being able to encourage people through our designs and products we offer. Whether it’s having a simple message magnet at your desk or a decal on your computer, the little messages are great reminders throughout the day.
What’s the latest thing you’ve been working on?
Taking our stationery line to the next level and developing more products in our line. I love stationery!
How did you get started in your business?
I was at an uncreative desk job and decided to create my blog & shop. We did our first craft show in 2008 and had a little 5 foot table. I still remember sitting in the car afterward counting up our earnings with my husband and being so excited people actually bought our stuff. We’ve been doing craft shows ever since 😉
Are you debuting anything new at the winter show?
Definitely! We’re really excited to be adding some tea towels, greeting cards, journals, and mini tape rolls to our product line and we’ll have them available at the winter show!
Is this a full-time business for you?
Yes! So fortunate to be able to do what I love every day 🙂
Where do you see your business in 3 years?
We want to do more trade shows next year and try to get oh, hello friend products available in more shops across the country.
Who’s your biggest fan?
What’s something you’ve learned through running your business in the past 12 months?
“it always seems impossible until it’s done” – great quote and something I found totally true recently. I was putting off a project for so long and I finally sat down and got it designed and made and it was so exciting/gratifying/awesome to see the results pay off! We had a great response to it and I thought to myself, “why didn’t I just do this sooner?” I’ve been realizing not to put things off for fear of it failing. You never know until you try!
What’s your favorite item that you sell?
Currently our message masking tape! It’s great for packaging, notes, leaving on a wall to encourage someone.
What do your customers love most about your products?
Our customers love our encouraging messages through our products and we get a lot of feedback that our products are affordable so we like to be able to offer items at reasonable price points.
What’s the best experience you’ve ever had with one of your customers?
One of our best experiences with someone in general was probably being in another country for a craft show (specifically Canada back in March of this year and London in 2012) and meeting 2 sweet girls who have read the blog. They told me how encouraged they’ve been through it which was so encouraging and amazing to me that our blog reaches countries all over the world!
