Wow! 2020!! Can you believe it? Honestly, I am still trying to mentally process the idea of this. In a lot of ways 2020 just feels like a really really big number. For a long time, I don't think I really believed this year would ever arrive. And suddenly there it is!!!
For me, 2019 was a pretty big deal. And a lot of that is because of all of you who have taken the time to believe in me. THANK YOU!!! I would not have made it this far without all of you joining me on this adventure. 2019 was the year that I launched this dream into reality with the opening of the Ellemichelle online shop in July. An awesome 1347 of you stopped by to check it out, 27 items were purchased, and one super amazing customer came back 3 times to order.❤️❤️❤️
On top of all that, I had two lively giveaways on Instagram ( stay tune, another giveaway is planned for early spring), started writing this blog /newsletter, and took a 6-hour class to learn Adobe Lightroom just so I could include some photos. Then, just as the year was rolling out, I learned my trademark for Ellemichelle was approved giving me the rights to the name in all 50 states! Looking back, 2019 really is a year to celebrate.
So what is lined up for 2020? Well... to get the party started Ellemichelle kicked off the year with our very first travel clothing Pop-UP shop inside The (awesome!) Riveter space in Seattle. It was a real treat to get to talk to some of you in person and help you pick out items for your upcoming vacations. And, I'm excited to say, a second pop-up shop/trunk show is already scheduled in spring at the Sassafras store in Seattle. Look for more details on this in the months to come. Other exciting news is that two new styles will be added to the clothing line this year. We all need something new to adore.
What do you think of my smart new promo cards, business cards, and tags that just arrived in time for 2020?
