My name is Meaghan and I'm excited to share my collection with you! This line has been a long time coming and it means a lot to finally be grabbing this dream by the reigns.
Here's some context...
I grew up in Connecticut surrounded by three sisters and one mother who was, and continues to be, truly incredible. (She has been pushing me to launch these cards since 2002!) My family was, for lack of a better term, dysfunctional. We screamed so loudly the neighbors could hear us, threw foreign objects at each other, but now are best friends. It's from my experiences growing up that a great deal of my Unfiltered™ concepts came from. What has also been an inspiration for many of these cards are first-hand experiences I have had myself. Living so many years as a free-spirit, moving around the country and following my heart, I have been exposed to so many things, and have seen others work through so many of life's challenges as well. The greeting card market has come a long way, but there are still often times I'm unable to find that sentiment for the non-traditional occasions that fall into my lap... such as congratulating a family member who took far too long to graduate college, or finding a Mother's Day card for a mom who deserved far more recognition than any Hallmark card could ever express. I'm a big fan of saying how you feel and I often describe myself as "the girl who says what everyone is thinking." I am finally at a point in my life where I am kicking myself for not pursuing this collection of cards when it first surfaced in my life, but being a Graphic Designer, I have a far better understanding of what it takes to make your product relevant in today's market and I believe I now have all of the tools essential for being successful.
I have been dreaming about this journey for quite some time, therefore am being extremely thoughtful with every addition I make to the collection. I believe this to be a great start and wanted to capture my ideas before any more time had lapsed. Please do check back often and reach out to me if there is something you'd like to see within the collection that isn't there right now.
I would love for you to be a part of this journey with me and am extremely open to suggestions for things such as the ease of navigating my website to the color choices for my cards. This is a learning process for me and I'm ready to get started!
