PInc.Stuff began in my dreams to make the world a little sweeter. In 2006, after finishing first year in art school, I decided to put my 5 months of summer into good use. I made pillows as gifts for some friends during Christmas 2005, and decided to make some more. One thing led to another, and the PInc. line of pillows were born.
Aside from pillows, my love for sweets has driven me to start my own business, and share my yummy creations with others. I combined my interest in crafting with my sweet tooth, and baked up a storm. Soon, Baked Treats emerged and grew in popularity. They are all carefully handmade by me, and baked to perfection. Since then, Pinc.Stuff has been featured in popular sites all over the internet, and worn by women around the world.
Today, Pinc. Stuff still runs as a one-girl operation. I work on Pinc.Stuff while studying full time in university, and have essentially become the face of Pinc Stuff. I am the designer, creator, PR, customer service, photographer, distributor, hand model, book keeper... and everything in between! It sure is hard work doing it all myself, but I love every bit of it. I want to keep making my ideas into reality, and make the world a 'pinc er' place. Thank you for taking the time to stop by. Feel free to look around and stay a while!
All the best, Sheryl Ng Founder of PInc.Stuff firstname.lastname@example.org
