We're on an adventure!

We're on an adventure!

Hey all! I wanted to share a little of our adventure with you... 

Like any business, there are periods of growth and new, exciting things! If you've been following our Facebook or Instagram pages, you know that I've been reflecting lately on what having this business means to me, the way that the pandemic has altered my own personal journey, and my hopes for the future.

So I wanted to take a few minutes to explain how we're expanding our options here at Connect the Dots and what you can expect to see from us in the future! 

We are now an online boutique, not just a custom shop. So what does that mean? It means that I have done a ton of research to bring you fun, unique, and other handmade products. I look for businesses that are small and artisan, but also those that are women-owned, BIPOC-owned, and that you can't find on Amazon. Over time, I will be carrying more inventory as we grow, but right now you can expect about a 2-3 week turnaround while we connect your customized and custom orders to other makers and then bring those goodies to you! 

You can always check out these brands on our Celebrate Small Shops page, which we will be updating as we add other shops. 

In April, we're adding items from Happy Little Flame, Abbie & Harry Studios,

Rockaway Gypsea Studios, and Charlee & Co. customs! 

This also means that things will rotate -- a lot. I can't stress this enough -- if you see something, grab it because as an online boutique, we don't have a big storeroom to keep extra inventory! Similarly, it means if you're looking for something you just can't find... reach out to us! We have a network of small shops that would love to help you find the perfect gift or custom! 


Yes, I am still taking custom orders for bags and apparel.

Yes, the TeeShop is still in full swing (and you can host your own pop-up shop!).

And yes, we're still making masks. 


I hope you'll take a look around the shop, join our VIP group on Facebook to get exclusive deals, and let us know what you might want to see in the future! 

We'll be working on Father's Day options this week -- if you've got the perfect idea, don't be shy! We want to hear from you!
