Our small beginnings
Helloooo! I'm Margaret! I started OnceMoreWithLove in November of 2015 when my life was a huge mess and I had no idea what I wanted to do. I had just quit dentistry and started working in visual effects for the movie industry. As fun as it was, I simply didn't feel the passion. One day, a close friend showed me her planner and asked me to make some stickers for her. On a whim, I agreed and it turned out that I was much more excited about designing stickers than I could have imagined. I was able to express myself in way that I could never before and it made me feel so alive! At that moment, I realized that nothing ever felt right for me because there was no love. I was not in love with my education, my degrees, or my fancy jobs. So no matter how much I excelled at any of them, I was never happy. But now, I've decided to try this again...
Once more, with love.
Fast forward a couple years, I am now a new mom with a beautiful golden lab puppy and a cheeky little baby girl. Despite sleepless nights and challenging days, I am still pouring my heart into my shop. I am so lucky to have the support of my customers who give me the opportunity to stay home with my babies while continuing to work on my dream. My stickers are still all hand-drawn by me, and hand-made in my home with the help of two amazing assistants, and my sweet parents who help to carefully pack every single order (read about them here)! Over the years, this tiny shop has grown to be able to support my family and my helpers and I will never take that for granted. Thank you for stopping by! I promise to always work hard and create only the best for you!
