Well hello blog, hello readers (if you are still around after my lack of posting) I hope you are doing well and have had a great 2013 this far. I’ve been busy on my end (clearly seeing the lack of posts) and I can’t wait to share with you my big announcement.
For the longest time, I’ve always wanted to have my own business, my own shop… but I never really knew what would work, what was right for me. I’ve opened several businesses in the past with partners and unfortunately that didn’t work out so well, so I decided I was going to do something solo and kick ass at it. I want to have a store that I can merchandise, make pretty and entice others to buy. Okay sure that’s not going to happen right now now, but I give myself 3 years. What am I talking about? I decided to open up a baking + party supply shop called : Sucre + Confetti
What made me take the jump? I still get requests about Mavrick’s first birthday (almost 2 years later) asking me either about the invitation design or where I got the elements of the party. I love designing themes and making them come to life, but planning wasn’t exactly what I wanted to do. I wanted to provide ideas to those who lack them and bring new, fresh, modern, colorful party + baking supplies to make it all happen.
Sure it’s nothing new, we know many online stores with this kind of stuff. Stuff like : paper straws, big 36″ balloons, treat bags, treat sticks, washi tape, garlands, paper plate… etc. But it’s certainly something that is lacking in Canada, even more so in Montreal. We are so hip when it comes to design & fashion but lacking in fun (not tacky) party decor. I decided enough was enough and that I would become the #1 source of sweet + stylish decor.
My site is under-construction but I invite you to like my facebook page to stay up to date. I’ve decided to change my Instagram handle from blushink to @Sucreconfetti and will plan to switch up my twitter and pinterest accounts soon. What will happen to Blushink? I will simply become Sucre + Confetti and I will offer design services under my new name. (So don’t be scared to contact me for design services if you are interest)
What will happen to my blog? It will stay … but I’ll probably change the name for it to be more “party related” I was thinking “C’est la Fête!” or something along those lines. That won’t be for a bit though so please bare with me as I try to work all of this out.
Phew… if you are still reading, hats off to you! Looking forward to sharing my new venture with you. Don’t forget to like my facebook page! Merci!
