Late last year I met the lovely Vesna from My Little Jedi at Mathilda’s Markets where she was showing off the beautiful wares she sells in her online store. We had another opportunity to meet up recently the ABCD Bloggers catch up and today I am delighted to give you the opportunity to get to know her a little better and find out a little more about her business.
Tell us a little more about My Little Jedi and how you started your business.
“My little jedi” label was born from my love of cards, beautiful paper and passion for all things pretty & vintage which basically started when my son Aniken was born. Since I discovered “blogosphere”, it has definitely opened more opportunities and my perspectives have changed. I am now providing party printable invitations, birthday banners, food labels, party favours boxes, envelopes as well as a range of lovely stationary in my online store. My goal is to become ‘one stop shop’ for fun, trendy and accessible stationary for the busy mum that wants to celebrate her child’s special event in style.
What are your favourite 3 products you sell.
o Apple and Pear memo pads
o Iomoi pencils
o Chevron printable envelopes
How would you describe your style?
A delicate mix of girly and vintage with the right amount of modern and whimsical touch!
Tell us a little more about your day to day life.
Where do I start! I get woken up by little man Aniken, we spend time together in the morning and watch his favourite shows while he eats his breakfast. Shortly after I start to get ready for work. I usually arrive home around 6.30pm. After dinner and bath we spend time with Aniken reading books and put him to bed. I get most of my designs/orders done after Aniken goes to bed. I am a night owl; I spend many hours on my laptop, looking for inspiration, sourcing new products and processing/packing orders.
There are definitely not enough hours in a day, trying to balance spending time with my family, full time work & running business from home and its definitely challenging and lot of hard work but very rewarding at the same time.
How do you like to relax.
My time to relax is after my son is tucked in for the night. I make myself a cup of T2 tea, put my soft pj’s on, warm socks and I relax while reading online magazines, browsing through inspirational blogs and writing posts for my blog.
