How did you get started with your business? How long have you been in business?
I started Elle’s Studio in 2007 when there wasn’t a ton of journaling tags available for sale. I ended up making a couple sets for me and then after a ton of encouragement from family and friends, I opened an Etsy shop, and then a couple of years later we moved to our own website. We still focus on journaling tags, but we also make coordinating 12 x 12 papers, and stamps!
What is your favorite thing about being an entrepreneur?
I love to see an idea go from start to finish. It’s so fun when you have an idea hit you out of nowhere – it’s like a spark! And, then to finally hold that item in your hands after you’ve worked on it for months is the best feeling!
Where are you located? What’s your favorite thing about the city you live in?
We are located in a smaller town, north of Seattle, WA. My favorite thing about this city is the people in it – my entire family lives either in the same city or very, very close.
What inspires you?
Lately, I’ve been finding myself really inspired by fashion! Which surprises me because I’m pretty simple when it comes to clothing. But, I’ve been loving watching the patterns and colors with each new season.
What goodies are on your wish list?
A Silhouette Cameo, a DIY coffee table I’ve been dying to make, and a container garden on my deck.
Tell us something new you have going on with your business:
We are really excited to be doing 12 x 12 papers that coordinate with all our tags! It completes each collection and really pulls everything together. We also have a new line of products called Serendipity.
