Comments Off on Shop Spotlight: Carousel Paper & Co.

It has been a pleasure getting to know the ladies behind Carousel Paper & Co. Today I have the honour of introducing them to you as the Shop Spotlight for February.  These ladies have their store stocked with beautiful items that will satisfy all of your paper accessory and decor needs.  From washi tape to paper straws, the patterns and colour combinations displayed in their shop couldn’t be dreamier.  Show Carousel Paper & Co. some love today by visiting their shop, and if you keep reading you just may find a special coupon code to use on any order.

It’s hard to say at which moment long-time friends Anna and Kathy suddenly decided to become business partners – it all started off as a casual conversation during one of their regular catch ups over drinks.  There was no denying their obsession for all things paper, packaging and decor.  Both with a Business Finance background, it became clear there was a desire for a creative outlet from their day to day.

It quickly turned to weeks of tossing out names for a new venture – to open a shop filled with carefully selected items which they could see themselves using.  Like many, they were frustrated by the limitations of what was available in Canada.  Many hours of pouring over product selection, and the scrutiny of suppliers, all to ensure the best quality products were brought to their customers.  The pieces of what is now proudly known as Carousel Paper & Co finally came together months later and they couldn’t have been more ecstatic!

As with all small businesses, the two partners wear many hats, some of them jointly, but Kathy focuses on Creative Design and Social Media; and Anna is the Business Manager.

Anna got bitten by the entrepreneurial bug three years ago and has been obsessed about small business since. She loves cooking but enjoys eating even more, and will take almost any excuse to celebrate!

Outside of working full-time, and spending time on Carousel Paper every chance she gets, Kathy has a love for photography, food and interior design.  She also has a 3.5 year old that regularly keeps her on her toes!

In addition to having great customers who use Carousel Paper products for their personal use, Anna and Kathy have also been able to connect with many local shops and businesses and are so proud to have the opportunity to be a part of the amazing packaging of some lovingly made products!  They are incredibly thankful and appreciative of everyone’s support.

  • Real life workouts with our babes. It's not always easy, but it is always worth it.

  • "Big Grandpa died Mom and we need to go get him back." Sophie said as she pulled at my arm from my bed. I lay down not feeling well trying to explain to Sophie about heaven and she said, "Mom, I don't want my parents to die, get better mommy." Oh my heart.

This weekend, we lost my grandfather. He had been sick for a little while, though I really did think his stubborn character would pull him through for more days here on earth. He's resting now, in heaven with our Heavenly Father. There is so much peace in that, though it is never easy to say goodbye, I am especially thankful for God's love and his sacrifice.

For anyone else mourning a loss right now I'm praying and sending love to you tonight. Especially those with little ones who we want to be honest with, that we have the words to let them understand in the most suitable way.

  • For a minute I thought Ezra was only a head shorter then me. We still have time people, notice the feet on tip toes in his shoes... not quite there yet. (Soooo... it's been noted that I'm wearing heels and he really IS THAT TALL NEXT TO ME!)
  • Weekend started early with a little trip to the island with my sister @roxannredekop. The weirdest part about being away from the kids is always bedtime. We are tucking into bed early tonight and I can't help but feel weird knowing that the wee ones won't be around in the morning.
  • The whole family gathered for a taste around my latest @DQcanada creation. Sophie kept asking if it was for Evelyn's birthday, which I think it would have been perfect for since I custom designed the top border with florals.⠀
•⠀
So here's how I made it. I went into dqcakes.com and found this heart shaped cake. It originally had balloons and "Happy Birthday" on the top with a plain white border around the edge. In the personalization option I simply asked for no words or decor on the top and a floral border in purple around the outside top border. Voila! You can do it to! Head to the link in my profile and play around with the different styles and options available on DQcakes.com⠀
