In 2016, I joined a Facebook group that forever changed my life.
That group centered around Black women that were into planning, stationery and crafting. I would sit in that group for hours reading through their post and one day something caught my attention.
There was a post where members were sharing which markers to use to recolor the skin of the characters on the stationery and planner products they had purchased.
This overwhelming sense of sadness coupled with a bit of anger hit me that in 2016 Black women could not find products that represented them.
After sitting with it for a little bit I decided that something needed to be done and that I was ready for the challenge.
On November 15, 2016 Oh So Paper officially opened.
