K. Simone Designs' Birthday

Today we are celebrating our 2nd anniversary of K. Simone Designs.  April 21, 2011 Ron and I started our greeting card business and opened our Etsy store.  I still remember how excited I was to start this chapter of my life, entrepreneur. Although I have been on a creative break from making cards, I still wanted to reflect on the past year. 

I want to thank you all for your support and cheers along the way.  We have the best customers and we feel honored to be apart of their special moments with our cards.

This year, we are looking forward to restocking our shop and taking more custom orders, so stay tuned!


The biggest highlight of the year was this video from our dear Twitter friend, Gospel music legend Vickie Winans. Many of you saw it and every time I watch it I still get filled with happy emotions.

Along with all the sales we love to donate, too. Last Summer, we donated to the National Association of Basketball wives' luncheon.  They gave the cards to their honorees one of which was Dr. Martin L. King's daughter Rev. Bernice King. We love being apart of events that honored those making a difference. They turned out so pretty!

Also, we donated to Essence Magazine's Black Women in Hollywood event. They were honoring some fantastic ladies.  We sent the cards and not sure if they were used but we were glad to send them anyways. The more exposure the better.

Well, thanks for walking down memory lane with me today.  I am looking forward to many more great things in the years to come.
