Why did you decide to start your own company?
After enjoying every minute of creating stationery for my destination wedding in August 2014, and seeing the feedback I received from friends and family I started exploring the idea of creating my own design company. I always new I wanted to design, but my wedding definitely inspired me to see what the wedding industry was all about. Starting my own thing was terrifying at first, but my family were the ones that truly believed in my dream and pushed me start the company. I’ve been in business for a year, and man it’s been amazing already!
How did you come up with the name of your company?
It’s funny because I’ve had a thing for graphic design, and it was even my undergrad major, but it seemed like my professional career always took me in a different direction like project management, systems engineer, etc. I could tell very early on I wasn’t fulfilled with those positions, so I started chasing my dream of becoming a designer. I was so determined to be successful that I began taking online courses and volunteering to do graphics for my company’s proposal team to reintroduce myself to the software—hence the word “dreamcatcher.” It didn’t take me long to realize that I have deeper love for creating stationery for life-changing events like weddings, birthdays, and baby showers. On top of that I started spending more and more hours in Michaels and any paper store I could find (I heart Paper Source). Dreamcatcher designs was already taken so Dreamcatcher Stationery only seemed right! LoL
What is your favorite part about what you do?
My favorite part is learning about my clients and their vision. I love the excitement in their eyes when they talk about their wedding/celebration, and the joy they get out of sharing their Pinterest vision board. 🙂
Do you have a favorite type of event/wedding/etc?
Weddings are my favorite events because I get to create lavish, over the top stationery for fabulous brides!
Is there anything you’d like our readers to know about you personally?
I absolutely love to travel and firmly believe that experiences by far outweigh the value of material things. I have so many places (especially Thailand) I want to visit that I promised myself an annual major trip (out the country of course), sprinkled with a few smaller trips throughout the year.
Do you have a team or do you work solo?
I refer to myself as a soloprenuer since I’m a one woman show! 🙂
