It all started with sticky notes me and my then-boyfriend would leave for each other. I realized I had a knack for sassy zingers and giggle-inducing puns, often outdoing my him with my own sticky notes.
Unfortunately he turned out to be a turd.
His very last sticky note was left in my apartment with a box of my stuff saying “this isn’t going to work”. But I would have the last laugh. I had stockpiled sassy phrases in my phone which I eventually turned into greeting cards and a full-blown business.
One day when I was watching Oprah learning how to be my best self it dawned on me - why don't I take my stockpile of sassy phrases saved on my phone and turn them into greeting cards? And poof! Crimson and Clover (named after the Jimmy Eat World song "A Praise Chorus") was born.
