Hi! We are Lindi and Justin. We live in a suburb outside of beautiful Portland, Oregon. The shop is run by me, Lindi. I "employ" my husband, Justin, to draw all of our designs in exchange for making all the meals and matching his socks. Together we have two beautiful, silly, too-smart-for-their-own-good children. In honor of the kids, who we do everything for, we named the shop Daisy & Aster, which is their respective birth flowers.
When Justin isn't drawing designs for the shop or wrangling kids, he makes tattoos. To see more of his work, check out his website www.justindion.com.
I am a full-time mom and don't actually match any socks, but I do make most of the meals. Prior to opening the shop, I spent 10 years as an event planner. But, after my second child was born, I struggled to find balance between my work schedule and the demands of a new baby and decided to take a break from planning events to focus on my kids. I had been so used to being busy and wanted to help bring in additional income, so I decided to start an online shop selling some trinket boxes and later coffee mugs and other things!
When I started this shop back in the late summer of 2015, I wasn't sure how long I'd be doing this for. My original goal was to help us get through the winter by making a few sales. 4 years later, this shop has turned into my job, and I couldn't be more grateful for the support we've had from so many people. Thanks for buying our stuff, continuing to share and support, and for a lot of you, being there since day one. We love you guys.
