When did you first realize you wanted to pursue a career as a designer?

What was the biggest rookie mistake you made when just starting out?
When we launched our website, we realized we had overlooked how we would ship our orders! We had nice pouches and romance cards, but we didn’t have mailer boxes or shipping labels. We scrambled to find a way to fulfill our orders and still make them pretty gifts for our new customers to open.

Where do you draw inspiration from for your designs?
