About Starr Plans
Hey there! I'm Ximena Starr. Welcome to Starr Plans.
Coming soon: More about Starr Plans, it's current goals, where we are going, what's inspiring it and more!
I've been a lover of stickers, planners, and paper since I was a child. Since then, I've always had the passion to create and to put smiles on those around me with my messy, paper creations. As I got older, my desire to encourage & support others grew right along with my paper crafting and planner collections.
How Starr Plans started:
Starr Plans is rooted in the online planner community. Online, I found a tribe who shared my passion of stickers and planners. In looking for the perfect planner, I discovered online BST, or Buy/Sell/Trade groups, where a woman helped me get the planner I was hoping for. A few weeks later, I found a way to return the favor when I was in a store surrounded by a dozen sticker books that I knew other members had been looking for. Those were my first sales.
It started with a few products in a shoe box, which turned into a shelf full, which eventually took over my entire office and then seeped into my daughters' room. I've continued my business throughout the years because I love the planner community and helping others, even if "it's just stickers." The passion and drive to help others has continued to motivate and push me to continue my business even through hard times, like Covid.
SMALL BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT-
When we launched this website, I realized I had many more opportunities to promote and support other small businesses, like myself. We have come a long way since the beginning when we mainly sold only Happy Planner products. I am happy to share that we currently sell over two dozen paper and crafting brands, & the numbers continue to increase with every release. If you are looking to support small businesses, unique brands, brands that support inclusivity, body positivity, self love, and mental health -- you have come to the right place.
*LIST of the brands we've carried
A large part of who Starr Plans is as a person, a brand, and a community is a welcoming & kind environment while encouraging one and other to love on and support one and other. I am a firm believer that we rise by lifting others. Due to this, I am starting a movement that I hope my members and followers will take up with me.
#Starrlingsgiveback is what it sounds like. Our planner community family giving back, whatever that may look like. It might mean sending out RAK's, volunteering at a pet shelter, or picking up trash on the side of the road or something completely different! All that matters is in your heart lead you to do the act!
Or maybe you had a good experience- someone paid for your food in line at Mcdonald's, were a receiver of a Random Act of Kindness or a #Starrgram- use that hashtag on social media to let us know! We want to blow up social media with acts of love and kindness! We want to show the world that there is still hope for humanity! Let's love on one and other & giveback, #Starrlings!!
Can't wait to see all the love and support!!
