As a creative and design lover at heart, it had always been my goal to somehow create a career where I'd be surrounded by beautiful, handmade things. In 2013, after making (and then quickly selling) nearly everything for our wedding, I decided to follow the breadcrumbs that the universe was leaving for me, and AllyBeth Design Co was born. We initially sold handmade signs, banners, paper craft items and other accessories, but it wasn't until 2016 when I really narrowed down our focus and became the brand that you see here today. Gift giving may be my love language, but I still know how hard it can be to find that *perfect gift* for someone you love. Whether they are celebrating a joyous occasion, experiencing a difficult season, or you'd just like to surprise them with something special, it is my goal that you will be able to find all of those gifts right here in our little shop. I keep all of this in mind when designing new products, when bringing in curated items from makers I know and love, and also when planning my pop ups. 

To be real vulnerable with you, this shop over the last 4 years has supported me through countless battles, including an ongoing anxiety disorder and the heartbreaking season of infertility. It is because of this journey that I've become so passionate about the power of reaching out. Sometimes, we don't know what to do or say, or how to support others, but that doesn't mean that support isn't needed. 

Quality, nourishing, uplifting products are so truly near and dear to my heart. I would love nothing more than to make it easier for you to lift up others in your lives, when you feel like giving a gift might help. At the end of the day, we are all walking our own paths, and sometimes, just knowing that someone else is out there rooting for us can make all of the difference. It helps us all feel just a little more connected. 

As a final note, I would like to say a heartfelt thank you to everyone who continues to support this little business of mine. You purchases not only help to support my family, but they allow me to keep going, to keep finding ways to give back, and keep creating items that help others feel loved, supported and cared for as well. 

sending you all so much love + light, 

Shannon
