I loved getting to write about Carrie Walters and Paper Rose Co. for B Side Collective!
Ja'Nai Frederick started B Side Collective in 2017 to highlight “the ground-breaking, the risk-taking, the unconventional, and often the less celebrated women” of Richmond and Charlottesville. For their third issue, they posted a Call for Writers in a Boss Babes Community Group that I’m a part of. I thought it was so cool that they were an independent publication with all female writers and immediately jumped on the opportunity.
Once I found out that I would be covering Carrie, I was excited because she has been a friend of mine and I have supported her business Paper Rose Co. since it started in 2016. I have even been able to collaborate with Carrie in the past by using some of her custom floral arrangements as gifts for my newly signed clients, which she highlighted on her website. She also made us several gorgeous arrangements for a Tiramisu for Breakfast Party we had at Kendra Scott.
