About Inky Hot Mess
Inky Hot Mess is the premier paper crafting destination in the Finger Lakes. Our shop is owned by a local family with over 15 years experience in the paper crafting industry.
How We Got Our Name
We are frequently asked how we came up with our name. Our family lived in South Carolina at one time and the phrase "hot mess" was quite popular during that time. I was at a local crop playing with Perfect Pearls Mists creating a variety of tags when a woman walked up and said, "You're an Inky Hot Mess." and she stormed off. After that, people kept calling me an Inky Hot Mess throughout the weekend so I renamed my blog. When I was finally opening my own paper crafting shop I used that name....seemed really appropriate and yes we do get messy in here at times! And we're perfectly ok with that! :)
