The date was January 31 in 2012 & I wrote this online shop an e-mail that said:
I really love your tapes. I’m just wondering though if you still have blue diagonal lines (instead of horizontal lines) as a tape and if the white polka dots against blue are still available (as a single order & not bundled).
I didn’t know who was behind this new washi tape but after a few e-mail exchanges an online orders, I decided to drop by the Hey Kessy booth at one of the first few 10A Alabama Arts & Crafts Fairs.
I forgot how the online order turned into a personal e-mail exchanged. Later, Mansy and I already agreed to exchange copies of Frankie Magazines and meet up so she can teach me paper cutting while I teach her calligraphy.I then told her how to create a Hey Kessy Messy Washi Party of sorts. I remember it as one of the fun workshops I attended. 🙂 Years later, Hey Kessy moved to Esteban Abada & built a new shop & studio. I remember taking photos of their store before it even opened. That was the day that Mansy & went to Pinto Museum.
The last time Mansy and I were together out-of-town twice in 2015. After so many stories, sessions talking about “the soul & the universe”, I didn’t realize that 5 years just went by so fast! OMG. Now, Hey Kessy has a store in UP Town Center! :) They’re still very much advocates of the handmade movement (and here I am, the friend who is holding digitizing workshops…LOL).
I still don’t know why I’m into this whole video thing but perhaps it’s just a good break from years of taking photos. I’ve always loved telling stories through visuals and I just felt I can say more with moving images. I’m still learning video after video how to go about things but last week, I just thought it would be fun to drop by the Hey Kessy Store and share with you guys all the cute & quirky stuff I found! 🙂
I don’t want to give away much about the video but enjoy! 🙂
