Whimsical accessories and decor for a magical lifestyle.
How we started
I started Wish Upon Magic in Dec 2017. We booked our first trip to WDW ever and I wanted a pair of special mouse ears to commemorate the exciting trip. I looked and looked, simply wishing that there was something exactly what I imagined and would be perfect for me. Exasperated, my sister finally told me, "Just do it yourself!" And the rest is history!
I started making mouse ears on the kitchen table of our then tiny 600 sq ft apartment out of Emeryville, California; we were just 1.5 miles from Pixar Animation Studios!! That summer, before I knew it, I started taking over our dining room and living room. As Wish Upon Magic grew, I found myself trying to keep up with both my day job and my magic making; and so, in mid-2019, I made the scary decision to jump in, head-first with Wish Upon Magic as a full time magic maker, packed my sewing machine, and moved back home to Los Angeles, California!
Once back in LA, I borrowed my parent's space and worked out of a single car garage- it was so hot that year, but we made the space work! At the end of 2020, we were able to convert our second floor master bedroom space into a fully working, little home studio with Lenny and I both making magic full time with Wish Upon Magic.
Fast forward to today, Wish Upon Magic is now a small team of amazing Fairies who help me create and share magic everyday out of our Pasadena studio. Best of all, we are able to keep sharing the magic and paying it forward by donating a portion of proceeds to Make-A-Wish Foundation and other amazing causes with every purchase from our small shop.
