Welcome to our new studio!
Hello, friends. Welcome to our new, sweet little studio.
Do you know that my sister Betsey and I started Happy Wish Company eight years ago? It’s been quite a journey in learning ALL THE THINGS of operating an online business. Let’s just say it has NOT always been easy! Over the years, our shop has evolved. We first started our packing and shipping operation in my home office, then moved to a storage unit, then moved to a small commercial building. And now, we're in a beautiful, brand-new space that we absolutely LOVE.
Our new studio is nestled in our small hometown of Escalon, California, where I live. Betsey lives about an hour away, in Sacramento. We got the keys last April, and completely renovated the space with a partition wall, shiplap, flooring, paint, bathroom remodel and installation of about 20+ giant IKEA cabinets! I have THE BEST hubby on Earth who installed all of those babies! The space is split into two parts. The back is where all the packing and shipping of your party goodies happens. The front is used as a studio for local art classes, creative workshops and birthday parties. A couple years ago, I started teaching classes for little makers, and it has quickly grown into something magical! Many of you probably don't know that I'm a credentialed teacher and have been in education for more than 20 years. Between creating with kiddos and dreaming up celebrations for our party shop, I feel so blessed and lucky to be able to do what I love everyday.
Lately we’ve been asking ourselves some deep questions about the items we sell and the content we create for Happy Wish Company… like, why are we doing this? Does anyone even care? How can we continue to compete and stay relevant? How much difference can we create?
Since the VERY beginning, our mission has been to help families create small, meaningful celebrations for their precious kiddos. We intentionally keep things clean + simple because we want you to look at our photos and think “I CAN DO THAT!” This is first and foremost in our minds. We love what we do, and want to continue helping you make your celebrations as adorable and easy as possible. We are here for you, mama. You can do this! And we want to help you.
After taking a little breather to reevaluate things, we're excited to continue to inspire you to create some magical memories! We’re going to *try* to stop being so shy, let go of perfection, and help you be the most festive mama you can be. We're excited to share more ideas about how you can inspire creativity in your children AND ways to make celebrating super simple and fun! Tons of new goodies coming to the shop and we CANNOT wait to share!
We are so appreciative of each of you for following along and supporting this little dream of ours.
