You Think It, They Ink It!
My daughter’s 13th birthday was fast approaching. As any mother of a pre-pubescent girl knows, turning 13 is huge deal and planning for the event began months ahead. Because my daughter has such unique tastes, she had her heart set on a Japanese themed party for her and her friends. There was one snag to the planning however – finding the perfect, Japanese themed invitations to send out. As we perused various stores, both on-line and off, we could not find anything close to what my daughter had envisioned.
Just when I was ready to scrap the whole idea of Japanese themed invitations, I re-connected with an old friend from High School, Angela Landino-Carter. As a self-professed ‘Craft Junkie’, Angela had been crafting on her own for years, but when she and her friend, Sharon Jordan, started sharing their projects and ideas with each other at work, the idea for “Think it… Ink it” was born and they were soon creating custom cards for the masses.
What makes Think it… Ink it! so unique is that Angela and Sharon carried the concept of promoting and encouraging creativity into their business. Not only can you order custom cards designed by Angela and Sharon, but you can also attend one of their many workshops and learn how to design and create your own cards, as well as other projects. They also sell kits for fun home projects, with several kits geared specifically toward kids.
Needless to say, what they were doing piqued my interest right away and I immediately consulted with her on some custom invitations for my daughter’s party. The end result was beautiful and just what my daughter had imagined.
