Looking Back- K. Simone Designs

Happy Summer! I hope you are enjoying yourselves so far. I know many of you have heard of #throwbackthursday on social media. So this  #throwbacksunday. LOL!

Last May, we reactivated our K. Simone Designs greeting card business.  Since then, we have been planning and working on some new goals. Doing all this has taken me back down memory. Boy, I have made SO many cards and we were fortunate to have some great experiences, too.

Today, I will be sharing one of my favorite experiences from 2011, our first year in business. Some of you may remember I blogged about our first opportunity to sell our cards at actress Tori Spelling's former store, Inventori. That was such an amazing time and gave us great excitement and joy.


Ron and I at Inventori. Didn't my card babies look good on that table? :)

Her staff was so kind and worked well with us.

Then, later that year,  I was able to met Tori at a store event. She was so lovely and encouraging.

Hope you all enjoyed this blast to the past and I hope to share any new updates as the year goes on. 

Now back to work for this year's cards. Go K. Simone Designs, go! LOL!

  3. I remember this as though it was yesterday! It was a very exciting time for you and Ron! I thought how awesome to create such beautiful cards that someone would sell them in there shop let alone in Ca. Was that really five years ago Kelly? Time flies doesn't it. I am trying to think back to how long I have been scrapping and how long we have been friends. No matter I love your creativity and the energy you have for all the different aspects of it for example how you taught yourself to draw. I hope you continue to let your creativity grow. You are so AWESOME!!!

    1. Thanks so much Cindy! Like I told Nylene, I am so glad I met you gals. All the encouragement and support you still give me is wonderful. I was trying to figure out how long we have been friends. Maybe since 2010? Have to think about that. But thanks again!
