Your business is very much appreciated. I would like to take a moment to introduce myself to you, my name is Heather, but most people call me Goose. I'm the owner and creative force behind the Goosie Girl label. My business launched in 2004 and has been growing by leaps & bounds ever since. The design studio (a.k.a. The Place Where the Magic Happens) is located in the western suburbs of Chicago, Illinois. I love what I do, and the people I meet doing it! My business has given me the opportunity to make many dreams come true for not only my customers but myself as well~ bringing joy to others by way of my creative abilities is what gives me satisfaction beyond measure. I've had the privilege of designing photo props and boutique accessories for some of the nation's top photographers, as well as several A-list celebrities such as Kevin Costner, Claudia Schiffer, Taylor Swift, Sara Evans , Christina Applegate, Halle Berry (and more). Goosie Girl products have traveled across the globe to Canada, Mexico, Saudi, Arabia, Italy, Australia, Germany, The United Kingdom, New Zealand, South Africa, Indonesia, South Africa, France, Dubai and Kuwait. I have seen my dreams realized through my business; and I love the friendships and working relationships I have developed with my clients over the past 10 years. My goal is for every customer to be so completely satisfied they can’t wait to tell all their friends about me & my work. It is my hope that you will share my business with your friends & family. Word of mouth advertising is the best and most reliable form of advertising available for a growing business such as Goosie Girl.
