Meet Pkay Oldham, owner of Project Chick Co., a handmade Etsy shop that takes pride in powerful words and inspiring quotes.
Crafting to me is just coming up with something out of nothing, really, and just bringing that imagination to life. I've always had this passion for things being personal and custom, just for me. So when I'm making things that include my name, it just makes me happy.
Did you ever imagine starting your own business?
It's something that I feel like everyone dreams about. Everyone wants to be their own boss, but never did I think it would happen now, or come so soon. When I first got my Cricut machine I thought it was just going to be a hobby or something that I just do for fun. It was never to sell. It was just for me to have cool things, and make fun things as a pastime. And from there I just kind of took that energy and put it into me and figured out what I love to do. What do I want to put out into the world? And that’s how I got into stickers.
Who do you make for?
I make for the people that are misunderstood or just need something that'll bring them joy in life. It's something about words that just make you feel happy or make you feel a certain thing. Kind of like a song. When you hear a song, it reminds you of a time in your life. That's how I feel about quotes.
