WHAT IS RAINBOW PENCILS?
Rainbow Pencils is a comic blog, lifestyle brand, retailer, and independent publishing company based in Seattle, Washington, founded and owned by me: Amanda Baskin. The company officially launched via rainbowpencils.com on August 14, 2018.
I couldn’t decide between having a fun comic blog and having a more traditional “mom blog” with pretty pictures and practical everyday advice, so I decided to do both!
WHO ARE YOU?
My name is Amanda Baskin. I like shopping at Target, any TV show based on Sherlock Holmes (Psych, Monk, House, etc.) and the color teal. I married my high school sweetheart and we’ve been together for almost thirteen years.
I used to be a sign painter for Trader Joe’s (and twelve other jobs in the last eight years. I’m creative. I get bored.) It was my favorite job (flower merchandising being a close second).
I came up with the idea for Rainbow Pencils out of a desire to bring creative work home with me after my daughter was born. We had a bit of a rough start involving pediatric stroke, but I’ll write about that in a post later. Don’t worry. I don’t talk about pediatric stroke all the time.
I will be collaborating with partners like Paper Source, Puffin Books, Paperless Post, and Target. I don’t see these as affiliate links. Some of the items I link to are free. The purpose of the shop is to bring together a collection of beautiful things that I hope will make your life easier.
Please let me know if there’s something I can assist you with or ways that I can improve your shopping experience.
