Enter as Strangers, Leave as Friends ...
Scrap-a-Doodle-Doo, which is known as the "DOO" to most of our friends and customers, will be celebrating our 15 year anniversary!
We are a family owned and operated small business that includes me (Stephanie), my husband Mark and my mom Norma. I feel fortunate that Mark has always been supportive of my hobby-turned-business. We jokingly refer to him as the Shipping, Logistics and IT guru of the team. My mom, Norma --- affectionately known as "Mama-Doodle" is also an active member of the team. She creates the majority of our fully assembled die-cuts and custom die-cuts. As for me, during the work week I am a Talent Acquisition / Human Resources professional. In my spare time, I am updating our website, our Etsy storefront, and creating.
There was a sign in our bricks-and-mortar store that reads: "Enter as Strangers, Leave as Friends". Those who visited the store and those who attended our Weekend Getaways tell us that they feel as though they are guests in our home. It is heart-warming to see the friendships that have developed as an outgrowth of our classes and crafting weekends. It was super gratifying to know that our events served as a "gathering place" for attendees from many parts of the United States who do not get to see one another otherwise and join us and their friends to enjoy this passion that we share. Although we cannot greet each of you personally when you visit our Online store, we want you to know that we are not merely a warehouse of products --- it is community of those who share our passion for crafting!
