I love happy, colorful anything.
I especially love happy, colorful, personalized paper.

So I am happy to introduce you to Kacey.
She is all about happy, colorful, personalized goodness.

"Well, hello there!

My name is Kacey.
And here is my "Doodle Bugs" story..

I started Doodle Bugs Paper in January 2003.
Why? I love paper!
And, I really love personalized paper.
I started Doodle Bugs being a dealer for five major stationery chains.
Quickly, I started designing and printing myself and turned the main focus of the business to my own line of stationery.
My first sales were by word of mouth.
I also started selling on ebay- and was amazed at how quickly my business grew.
The next logical step was a full functioning website. The website went live in November 2004.
I love ice tea, a good hamburger, cold pizza for breakfast, any kind of cake,
a good book, a beach vacation and of course anything personalized.
But, on the other hand, I am not a fan of coffee, doing housework,
tomatoes, snakes, lizards, frogs or mice, and I don't eat any kind of seafood.

Doodle Bugs is MORE than a full time job BUT I also manage to get up everyday and go to work as a first grade teacher.
Why, I simply love kids!
I started the business as a dream to stay home and work.
But, when the time came- I love being a teacher just as much as I love stationery!
So, I teach simple things like the alphabet and numbers by day
and run a business at night and on the weekends.

Life is good."
Couldn't you just order up one of everything?
