Meet The Spring 2021 Shop | Plannermania

TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOURSELF! WHERE ARE YOU FROM? WHEN DID YOU START? WHAT FIRST GOT YOU INTO SELLING PLANNER SUPPLIES?

Hey! I'm Dierdre from Plannermania. I started out my shop on Etsy waaaaay back in 2014, but really started getting into it in February of 2015. I had been working a federal government job for 8 years. When I turned down a promotion my director asked me in confused exasperation, "Dierdre, what do you want to be when you grow up?" A few months later I quit my safe and cushy government job and started working on my shop full time. I'm not sure how he would feel about my career path, but thanks Todd. 😂 Originally I started selling printable inserts that would fit my $10 no name personal size planner that I found on eBay. When I found out I could make my own stickers, it was a whole new wonderful world. In 2019, I also started selling on Shopify and now operate on both platforms. I call myself adventurous, but really it might just be a desperate attempt to find happiness, so my shop has followed me as I've moved around the country. I started out in Winnipeg, then moved to Iqaluit for a few years, and now I'm in Ottawa. I still haven't found happiness, but I have a cat and some stickers, so there's that.

  

TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOUR SHOP! WHAT KIND OF STUFF DO YOU SELL? DO YOU HAVE A PARTICULAR STYLE?

I try to be a cheerful person. It doesn't work out a lot of the time. So my stickers are a weird mix of attempted optimism in cute, cheerful, calm colours, and then the opposite extreme of depressed, down in the dumps, life sucks, and I think I might be dying a bit. My mental health issues have definitely molded my "style". But since 1 in 5 Canadians has a diagnosed mental health disorder, and 53% of us have multiple mental health issues, I think we should just all be realistic and have stickers that represent our lives and what's going on in them. My mental health themed stickers are some of my favourite designs, and also some of my best sellers. 

 

WHAT IS YOUR ALL-TIME BEST SELLER?

On Etsy, my all time best seller is my "change the sheets" sticker. Which is weird because it's not one of my favourites. But I guess you guys like it, or maybe you just change your sheets a lot more often than I do. 
On Shopify, my all time best seller is my zoom stickers. I guess that's life now.

 

 

WHAT IS YOUR ABSOLUTE FAVOURITE ITEM IN YOUR SHOP?

Current absolute faves are the "Good Janet" and "Bad Janet" stickers and sticker flakes. Partly because I love all the Janets (except that snobby girl that was a grade ahead of me in high school - I do not like that Janet), and partly because I'm really satisfied with how my drawings turned out. If you don't know about Janet, you need to watch "The Good Place" on Netflix.

 

WHAT CAN WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING FROM YOU DURING THE MADE IN CANADA COLLAB?

I'm really hoping to get out of my weeks long depression funk and get my butt moving on designing some new stickers. (Just kidding, I don't design with my butt.) I'm guessing there will be a new batch of mental health stickers, and hopefully some cheerful summer-ish stickers. I've also just started designing greeting cards and hope to have a few more designs up in time for the sale.

 

IF THERE'S ANYTHING ELSE YOU'D LIKE TO LET US KNOW, USE THIS SPACE! 👇

 

I'm grateful for every single sale, whether you buy 1 sheet of stickers or 50! Thank you! You're all rockstars!
