The personalized gift line Confections by Shara’s Paperie grew out of my store Shara’s Paperie based here in Memphis, TN. I opened Shara’s Paperie in October 2004 with the goal of being a design studio in a retail shop. Now this is common place, but when I opened we were the first in Memphis to do so. Along the way I have had too many wonderful clients to count and some that I would rather forget. But I have to say that working with my clients on their life cycle events is one of my favorite things to do. If I could do that, and design for Confections all day long I would be a happy camper. The other things of running a business such as taxes, payroll and accounting I could do without. Anyway, over the years I have heard some crazy things from brides, mother of the brides, parents of the bar or bat mitzvah kid and even some grooms thrown in there. Never have I taken the time to write a mantra about the things that have been said to me over the years that make me crazy…and now I don’t have to because Melinda Morris who writes for The Huffington Post has said it for me. So anyone who is embarking on the journey of ordering invitations please read this, "What Not To Say To Your Stationer". Any stationer will appreciate it.
