We had the good fortune of connecting with Alexandra Burrow and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Alexandra, is there a quote or affirmation that’s meaningful to you?
“There is no way you worked so hard for it not to lead to something amazing.” This is something I’ve heard Mel Robbins say in one of her books or maybe in one of her presentations and it resonated with me so much that I have it on a sticky note on my computer. This is a beautiful reminder that all your hard work will lead to something eventually but it might just take a little while.
Sublime & Co. recently celebrated its first anniversary, and I had many moments when I questioned myself and I wanted to give up, but this quote is something that I keep coming back to as a way to motivate myself and push myself forward.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
You see wherever we are in this magical world when we look up, we all see the same celestial bodies dancing through the night sky. We all share the same stars, constellations, light, and time. The same Universe above is witnessing our moments in life. The highs and the lows. The joy, the heartbreak, the love, and the beauty of being. It is this thought that brings me warmth and comfort whenever I miss someone, and it is this thought that inspired a collection of celestial paper goods.
Sublime & Co., is a stationery company inspired by my love for the sky above and founded on a strong desire to help people create memorable experiences with meaningful paper.
At Sublime & Co. we dream in pastels. From shades of sunrise to sunset hues, the color palette is carefully curated every product is thoughtfully created to honor the beauty of the heavens above.
I am the stargazer and illustrator behind every single design and product that passes through our doors, and every day as I strive to create paper delights that empower people to celebrate life’s special moments and everything in between.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Huge shoutout to Katie Hunt from Proof To Product, for being the greatest educator and mentor in our industry. Her classes, courses, and knowledge help me, and thousands of other people every day!
