It's our very first #FridayFinds post of 2016 and we are rounding out the year by jumping on the #2015BestNine train and creating a round-up from our instagram posts of 2015. But instead of sharing our nine most liked images of the year, we are sharing nine of our best moments. Highlights that we are so blessed happened for us and for Thimblepress® this year. Thanks so much to each of you that follow, support and love our brand. The past year has been more amazing then we could have anticipated!
Read on for an abbreviated recap of each of these moments!
January 2015 //
We kicked off the year with our brand new Glitter Guide x Thimblepress® Collection, full of bright colors, sparkly things and sugar sweetness! This was such an amazing collection to work on and we are still crazy about it 100%!
February 2015 //
In February, we made a big move we dubbed the #thimbleexpansion. Bursting at the seams of our little studio, we finally expanded our operation by acquiring the upstairs unit of our downtown studio space. It has been such a blessing to stay in our studio, but gain some stretching room, we really needed it and have definitely taken full advantage.
April 2015 //
In April, we had the joy and giant honor of being featured on Good Morning America in their Deals and Steals segment with Tory Johnson! The prep for this event was all hands on deck, but the day of, we all got up early and huddled around to watch together as our products graced national television. We've had the honor of being featured in a number of amazing print publications, but television was such a different and fun experience, and one we are so thankful happened.
May 2015 //
At the National Stationery Show this May, we set up our brand new booth design for the first time. We had this custom made for us by local craftsman, D + P Design build, and it was made specifically with our products in mind! We are true believers that packaging really does matter, and that means the showroom set up too, so this was a big WIN for us this year and we'll be using it for many many shows to come!
June 2015 //
In June, we added our newest Thimblepets team member; Henry Albert Ley! Henry is a mini merle golden doodle and he brings the energy to the team every work day! (Follow along with all the Thimblepets on their personal instagram @thimblepets or with their hashtag #thimblepets)
November 2015 //
In November, we had the honor of being featured in Martha Stewart Weddings Magazine, with a spotlight on our Floral Eco-Friendly Confetti™ and we also started and hosted our first annual Maker's Jubilee at our studio! The Maker's Jubilee is a kickoff to the holiday shopping season and is a marketplace to shop a wide variety of local artisan goods. This year we had 10 local artists/makers selling their goods and it was such a wonderful time. We love our community and we can't wait to see how this project grows in the years to come!
December 2015 //
The month of December was a doozy packed with hustle, bustle, fun and cheer, it was hard to choose highlights, but the first was our Thimblepress® Team Holiday Retreat! Our full time staff took a trip to New Orleans together which was full of fun, adventure and holiday hoopla! Definitely a trip to remember! View the full photo album from our trip HERE. The second highlight was that just last week we were able to announce our collaborative collection with HALLMARK set to release January 2016!! We are so thrilled at this opportunity and are so excited to share the products we designed exclusively for Hallmark's Signature Collection- only a few more days until we can share it all!
. . .
All in all, we could have chosen so many more highlights than nine. 2015 was such an amazing year of growth with so many celebration-worthy moments woven throughout. We hope your year was filled with the same, and cheers to recognizing and appreciating all the goodness to come in 2016!!
So much love,
