All About Poppy Seed

Oh my goodness! I just spend the last 24 hours with out the internet. . .I thought I would die I felt so disconnected and lonely. So forgive me for the delay in blog posts.

To start off I thought it would be fun to give a little back ground on Poppy Seed Projects.

Poppy Seed was started really on a whim over three years ago by myself and my good friend Kim.

We started out as Simply Creative. . .

Later decided this name didn't work for us (to generic) switched to http://www.createsomethingcute.com/. Decided that name was a little weird. . . and finally wound up with Poppy Seed Projects.com. During this time we also out grew a blog, launched a website, out grew our website and launched our current fantastic website.

While all of this was going on online the physical aspects of Poppy Seed were being operated primarily from my home. After a year we realized this wasn't really working so we moved to a warehouse in West Jordan (one of the happiest days of my life) which we quickly out grew and moved to Sandy

Along the way we learned A LOT about customer service, running a business, hiring and training teachers, and prioritizing.

NOW we have over 30 + absolutly AMAZING teachers, a warehouse in Sandy with a retail space out front (the store we will soon be opening) 2 wonderful ladies that run the in and outs of said warehouse, a couple of ladies that work from home . . .and of course Kim and I are both still around.

The last three years has been like taking a crash course in MBA school, Graphic Design and Family and Life Sciences all at the same time. I am and always will be amazed at what Poppy Seed has become and that SO many love our products. Thank you, thank you, to all who love and support us.

NOW GET READY. As soon as Easter weekend is over we will be starting the BIG BLOG EVENT with giveaways, contests, and coupon codes! See you Mon.!
