Tell us about your business.I started making paper stars to decorate a metaphysical gift shop ceiling that I owned and operated with my mother. Visitors loved the stars and wanted some for themselves. The business grew from there- I started making star mobiles for customers to take home their little part of the shop. I sell the paper so people can make their own stars.
Tell us about your workspace, shop, or studio.I work from home and have a little office which i work out of. I actually have star stuff all over the house! I stock up for Christmas inventory the entire year before.
