About Cactus to Pine
Hey Ya'll. I'm Shelby, the individual behind Cactus to Pine.
In January of 2019, I was on the search for a climbing sticker. Unable to find exactly what I was looking for, I decided to just DIY-it.
I ordered the minimum required by the printing company and offered a few to friends via my personal Instagram. The feedback was amazing. So many friends reached out to get one. But the real spark came when a climbing group out of California inquired about a bulk order. I realized not only did I LOVE the idea that my art would be in climber hands around the world, but I could actually earn a side income by doing so. I added a few more designs and Cactus to Pine was born.
In March of 2020 (like so many other) I lost my job and my focused shifted to trying to grow my business with the goal of going fulltime. By the end of 2020, that goal was a reality and I started making moves. I sold my house, bought a camper and have spent 2021 traveling around to climbing festivals and crags all around the country, meeting climbers and selling my goods.
I have a lot of goals moving forward. But overall I'm just so grateful to be here.
Thank you so much for visiting my site. Please let me know if there's anything I can help you with. Stay rad & Climb on!
