Hi! Thanks so much for stopping by.
My name is Nicole Annette, and I am the Owner and Senior Maker here at Journal Junky. I guess I can tell you that I have a B.A. in Psychology, and a M.Ed. in Adult Learning & Development...but that's boring.
Really, I'm a paper addict, journal writer, avid list maker, doting stay-at-home mommy of one hilarious 4-year old, and loving wife of William W.
Journal Junky was created out of the need to help my family. Journal Junky continues out of the need to help yours...
In June of 2008, I married William, the love of my life. Life would have
been more than perfect except for the fact that he got laid off two
weeks before our wedding day. With a hiring freeze in the medical field
in our local area, finding a job was near impossible for him for six
months. I relocated, from Ohio, to North Carolina after our wedding, and
found it hard to get a job as well.
After much searching, and putting in of applications, I remembered a
co-worker mentioning Etsy a couple of years earlier, and in August of
2008, I began Journal Junky to help supplement our needs.
As a paper lover, and self-proclaimed journal junky, an online
stationery shop seemed like the perfect fit. Now, instead of buying my
journals and paper goods, I just made them myself, and (surprisingly)
others loved them!
Etsy, and my customers, have helped to change our lives, and after six
years, Journal Junky has finally evolved from a hobby to a business, and
is still bringing joy to our lives and to the lives of others.
The purpose of my business is to enhance the lives of my customers and
their families. I create natural, earth-friendly paper products designed
to inspire you to organize your life, plan your special moments, write
down what matters to you, create conversations, and cultivate
I design, create, and ship every product in my shop, with this in mind...
