“Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will.”
This beautiful yet simple quote by Suzy Kassem was the beginning to my creative journey. I've learned that only through trial and error will we find our way to our goals. And so, with doubt aside I created YouTube videos documenting my newly learned obsession with bullet journaling. And then soon after, I started to receive requests of my artwork within my videos and that lead to Etsy at the end of 2017. By January 2018 Blush & May was in full production as a new small journal and stationery brand.
Inspired by nature, childhood book illustrations, and the imagination, I wanted to create a shop that inspires you to cast your fears and self doubt aside to create fearlessly. The name Blush & May is a combination of my favorite color and the month of my most significant memories. It is also a play on a part of my name "My" which is pronounced "Mei/ May" in Chinese meaning beauty.
My underlining and future goal is to partner with local charities and non-profits to create special product lines inspired by the organization to promote awareness. I will work locally to help build my community with hopes to expand the partnership nationally and internationally. I want to find a purpose to my work that is greater than me and to inspire positivity.
Cheers from a little studio in Harrisburg, PA, USA.
