Hello. I'm Casey.
In the paper aisle of Michael's (you know, the one with the scrapbooking ladies) in January of 2015, I had dabbled on Etsy making some prints and custom artwork. My boyfriend, now husband, turned to me and said, "You know, you should think about making greeting cards. I bet you could make some funny stuff."
And so I thought he was just wanting to get in my pants by being so nice.
But it turns out, I kind of have a knack for writing and illustrating exactly what I'm thinking. And that's turned into a pretty amazing business and the best "job" in the entire world. In the first year, I learned a lot. Like what different paper weights felt like, the difference between printers, how to bandage a paper cut 52 different ways, and so on. The second year, I learned about wholesale and how to make my packaging fun. I took it to a new level of just having FUN.
In this third year, we reached 20,000 sales on Etsy, and it just about blew my mind. I'm still here trying to make this thing as big as I can without forgetting to appreciate the fact that I get to do what I love because of this insane journey. Drawing, writing, creating. You know, the most important things.
And I hope you take the time to look at what I've made. If you're a repeat customer, I love you. If you're a boutique who's thinking about adding Knotty Cards to your card wall, I may be biased, but I say go for it! And if you're just snooping around because you're curious what the hell I do all day, welcome :)
I also am married to this wonderful human, and we live our life in Charleston, SC.
Yes, we eloped.
And we have two dog children.
...and Mr. Moo.
So 99.9% of our proceeds actually go to them.
