It is all Fresh and New!
Have you ever wanted to hit the restart button? To take an opportunity to start fresh and new? I am starting my 13th year in business with Embellishing Bliss in April and decided it was time to update my website and have a larger presence on social media. It might sound easy, but I have to tell you it is a bit (ok, a lot) overwhelming. So please be patient with me as begin this new journey of using social media for my business.
When I first started my business part-time in 2006, I loved the idea of creating memory keepsakes for people who have lost loved one or wanted to celebrate a special occasion like a graduation, baptism or wedding. Over the years, I have continued to do this, but also created a line of accessories including hats, scarves and mittens that I sold wholesale to over 30 retail stores in the Midwest from reclaimed textiles. I did art shows, taught classes, and whatever else people asked me to do in order keep my business going. In 2012, I started working at my church to help support my family in a more consistent way, since it is difficult to make a living as an artist.
Over the last 12 years, when I look back over all of the amazing things I have created, it brings me the most joy to know that I have designed memory keepsakes for people who were touched by them in a special way. I want to get back to doing more custom pieces for individuals who will cherish these special treasures.
My goal is to share a story on my blog each Friday that captures a special memory keepsake that I have created for a customer. My hope is that you will be inspired by these stories and at some point you will consider having something custom created out of a loved one’s clothing to honor, cherish and celebrate a special occasion.
Hopefully, if I can figure out the whole social media world, I will post on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter. Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you.
