A little about us and how we got started… Let’s see…It all happened so fast to tell you the truth. We, Hannah and Melanie, are the type of girls that act first and plan later- oh our poor husbands. So anyway, we were both middle school teachers at the same school and we would get together every Saturday for a couple of hours to scrapbook.
One Saturday, as we were complaining about not having a good place to purchase supplies nearby, Hannah asked Melanie if she would like to open a store. Melanie thought she was kidding and blew her off. Hannah really did want to open her own store, but her husband told her she would have to find a partner. The next time we got together to scrapbook, Hannah told Melanie that she really did want to open a store, Melanie’s response was “Great, because I called the bank and they will give me money!”- The rest as they say “is history!”
The Doodlebug, Inc. officially came to be in May 2002 and since opening, the store has relocated 3 times to make room for more product lines! Everyone told us that our original store of 800 square feet (seriously..800 - some of you have scrap rooms bigger than that!!) would never be enough and we did grow out of that one in a hurry. We currently occupy over 3200 square feet of pure paper crafting goodness! As the industry has changed, so have we!! Can you say...WE LOVE PINTEREST!! We are now so much more than just paper and stickers! We now offer carry a wide variety of Vinyl, Wood Crafts, Mixed Media, Stamping, Planners, and other General Craft Supplies. We also classes and hold at least 4 weekend retreat each year. Other services we provide...beading supplies, jewelry repair, & custom scrapbooks.
