The Yourdori Story

is just beginning!



Dana Sanchez and I are best friends or "Besties" as we call each other.  My name is Nancy Gaines.

We are truly kindred spirits.  We are in each other's heads and quite frequently finish the other's sentences. We are crafty soul mates and she totally has my heart.  She so gets me.

That's us in a nutshell. ♡

Now this is where it gets interesting!

I've had this idea for a planner/journal in my head for over 4 years now and the Who, What, When, Where and Why of it just went off like a light bulb over my head about a month and a half ago.  For real!  It was like . . . YES!  This is it!

So, I'm thinking and thinking and planning and writing things down on every piece of paper that was handy! And this planner is the PERFECT PLANNER for me to finally get my million paper pieces of life in order!

We are thinking that it might be perfect for you too. ♡


Our tag line for our new business adventure is:  
"A home for your peace of mind"

We have designed the Yourdori to help you get all of the bits and scraps, the clutter and overwhelm of your life, OUT of your head and into one of the most creative, inspiring and organized planners on the market today!   That kind of sounded like an infomercial, huh?  Just keep reading!  ;)

Part 2 of The Yourdori Story. . .

Yourdori is also your online home.

Dana and I have taken it a step further than just a pretty,  albeit practical, product.  Yourdori.com is essentially an online version of our planners.  We will have categories that are much like the notebook inserts that go in the physical Yourdori, such as:


  • Crafts ▪ Tutorials ▪ DIY'S 
  • Photography and Packaging
  • Biz motivation,  Inspiration & Tips
  • Food fun
  • Planners ▪ Printables & all things Paper
  • Shout-Outs and Collaborations
  • How to do it all . . . or not.
  • and more OR less . . . still thinking.

It's going to be full of exclusive content,  beautiful photos, authentic stories and real coversations!  It's kinda going to knock your socks off! 

Part 3 of The Yourdori Story . . .

Here comes the CRAZY part & as Dana says "Squea!"

We are going to do this a bit differently. EEeeEekkkkkk!  (That was me, this time!)

Instead of doing everything "behind-the-scenes" and just giving you sneak peeks now and then, maybe some giveaways and some cute graphics and then a big launch . . . been there, done that, right?

How about we take you every step of the way with us?  What do you think about seeing how Dana and I take our Yourdori idea and bring it to life?  

"Holy cow, that's not how it's done,  Batman!", right?  Eh, who cares!  Let's do it anyway! 

What we've got right now is moxie, determination and an on-fire kind of passion that money can't buy!  

We also have a deep desire to help other creative women.  We love to share.  We love to chat.  We love to learn.  And, boy, do we love to create!

We are going to start documenting The Yourdori Story on February 9, 2016 . . . a Tuesday.  We are not waiting till "we're ready".  As recovering perfectionists,  we know that ship could sail and the opportunity along with it . . . if we wait till "we're ready".


WE ARE READY NOW! 

Okay, so right now, we've got a GREAT product idea, the inventory to make the product and we each have a studio to make, stock and ship the product from.

We also have a domain name and a bare bones website.  We've signed up for all of our social media platforms.  and we've chosen how and where we are going to sell the Yourdori.  We also have email form to make it easy for you to sign up for our blog posts! (and our newsletter when we get that ready!)

So today, Dana and I are going to take a deep breath and get ready to dive or jump into this new business and life adventure on Tuesday, for all the world to see!  We are a bit nervous, and perhaps a little nauseous, but mostly just so very excited!  Who doesn't love a good adventure?!

Are you going to swim with us?  Or at least watch from the shore and throw us a life preserver if you see us calling for some help?  Of course you would, what am I even thinking!

We sure hope you'll join us and share your stories too!  Please sign up for our mailing list, 'cause it's going to be cool! (We need to ask you guys what you think you might like to see in a newsletter, so we can make sure it's cool!)

So, ladies . . . Welcome to our home. Yourdori.  A home for your peace of mind. ♡  Leave us a comment and let us know what you think and how you think we can best serve you! ♡
