So today was Bj’s last day at I Remember When. I am so proud of him for all of the great work that he has done there. I know we will miss all of the consultants that we loved so much (I left IRW in mid-December). It’s weird to be in this place in your life where things are always changing and friends are all doing different things (from hiking volcanoes to studying in Italy to starting their careers). I don’t think there is any right path or anything like that, but I know looking for a "grown up job" with benefits and everything seems like the right thing for Bj to do and I really support him in that. For me the right thing to do now is start my own company. I watched my dad work crazy hours and saw all the cool rewards to doing that (great employees and awesome projects). I had my mom always helping me to be as creative as possible, and for that I am truly thankful.
I think I have found the perfect combination of those two things in starting my company, The Ribbon Jar. I am going to be selling very pretty ribbon and trim. I couldn’t find this stuff anywhere when I wanted it so I decided that the world needs a Ribbon Jar. The ribbon is fun, funky, colorful, and exquisite, nothing you’d find on any normal store shelf. I also have really cool fabric strips from vintage to silk, and trims. I hope everyone is as excited as I am. And for all of my friends who are getting married I am offering a custom ribbon matching program so that people who like things just so like me can get everything to coordinate on their special day.
Right now the site just says coming soon, but it will be up in a few weeks or so. That jar on the left is my logo, I drew it so tell me what you think, actually tell me what you think of the whole idea, you know I love comments!
