How’d You Get The Idea For It:
While traveling through Tokyo I was inspired by the colors, technology, fashion and creativity that exploded from every corner of the city. At the same time I was traveling through Tokyo I was planning my wedding. I was surfing the Internet having to go to one website to pin things, another to discover them and another to shop for them. I was sitting in one of the most colorful coffee shops in Tokyo when it dawned it on me that there should be an easier way to bring everything I was doing online together in one all inclusive website. As soon as I hit U.S. soil I immediately called my two most creative friends, Laura and Courtney. They instantly loved the idea and joined me in the journey to found Craft Box Girls.
