About me & the story of my shop

About me
 
I’m a 22 year old girl who goes by the name Alva, or Tuuli Alva. I live in northern Sweden with my father and grandfather.
 
When I’m not working on my shop I love to craft, scrapbook, watch series and spend time with my boyfriend. I love pink, glitter, pastels and all things ‘’girly’’ (so you can expect to see a lot of that in my shop 😉 )
 
I fell in love with planning during the fall of 2015, I just loved to decorate my planner and watch planning videos all day long. I was having quite a hard time, but planning became a much-needed escape for me. I actually started of printing my own icons on regular printer paper that I then glued in my planner. Don’t worry – I’m using sticker paper now, so you don’t need to worry about gluing my stickers down, haha.
 
Shortly after I had discovered planning, I opened my shop. I started out selling printable stickers, and a few months in my grandpa took a chance on me and helped me getting my very first silhouette machine and my very first printer. Before I opened my shop, I had problems even getting out of bed, due to a severe depression. Once I opened, I started to feel like I had a purpose and I now had something that made me so very happy.
 
Besides depression and anxiety, I struggled with just being diagnosed with a-typical autism. I really liked knowing what was up, but it still took me awhile to accept it. And as a cheery on top, I was diagnosed with social phobia, a couple of years later.
 
It took me 3.5 years longer than it ‘’should have’’ to finish my ‘’gymnasie’’ studies, but I finally did in September of -19. So now I’m giving this a shot full time and I just couldn’t be happier about it.
 
Today I’m having so many better days and I feel so much better than I used to. My boyfriend since -18 and I are looking for an apartment and I really do look forward to every day.
 
Since I opened my shop, I’ve had a lot of questions about the name of my shop. So, I feel like I should address that too. Tuuli is actually my Finnish name. Ever since I started going online and making usernames, I’ve used Tuuli Alva or Tuuli. So, naming my shop Tuuli Plans came naturally to me.
