As a company we had naturally progressed to baby showers and birthdays, so launching a new website to house these things had always been in the back of my mind. But juggling a busy business with looking after my two small children meant that years passed without me ever being able to give it a second look. In early 202 and with weddings off the cards for the foreseeable, now was the time to take the plunge and try something new.
My motivation for launching Wedding in a Teacup was to offer couples an eco-friendly and stylish alternative to the mainstream. My motivation for The Paper Wild has stayed the same; I know my customer values experiences and feelings over things. They want to feel that they are making a difference with what they choose to spend their money on and to give thoughtful, stylish gifts without guilt.
Fast forward to now - a labour of love later and The Paper Wild is ready! I hope you love it as much as I do. 2020 was a tough for so many reasons, and it has meant huge change here too. We are now based in a garden studio at my house in Sussex, which we love. I have not been able to take all of my team back yet, but I'm working my hardest to change this. Never has supporting small business been so relevant than today - you really are helping to keep people's passions and dreams alive. You rock!!
