About Me

Hello there, and welcome to Props for Dots! You might see the typical "About Us" page on websites, but let's keep it real – this is all about me, Lonkie, doing what I absolutely love.

A few years ago, my idea of planning was scribbling assignments in my school homework book. My mother was the embodiment of an efficient, do-it-all superstar. She managed everything, and I never had to run my own life. But when she passed away, my world fell apart in countless ways. I was left to navigate the chaos of paperwork, decisions, and life in general.

That's when I stumbled upon the Bullet Journal Method, and it transformed my life. I became deeply passionate about planning, and that passion birthed Props for Dots. "Props" – a nod to the washi tape, stamps, stickers, and all those delightful extras we cherish in our planners. "Dots" – a tribute to the dot grid notebooks that many of us adore for our bullet journals.

Since those early days, my little business has grown and evolved. While my journey began with a focus on bullet journaling, it has expanded to embrace all aspects of planning. I've also discovered the therapeutic power of journaling; it helps clear my mind and sharpen my focus. So, as I grow and change, the shop and the items I offer grow and evolve with me. Everything I stock is personally tried and tested, reflecting items I genuinely love.

Much has changed since I started this journey, but one thing remains steadfast – my commitment to offering beautiful, functional, and affordable stationery. I'm delighted that you've taken the time to visit my shop. Thank you for being a part of this adventure.

Warm regards,
Lonkie and Props for Dots Team (still just me)
