I’ve received a lot of questions lately about why I haven’t been doing as much blogging. And even though I obviously know I haven’t posted much, it hasn’t been an intentional decision. So now that I’ve been thinking about it and why I drifted away from writing blog posts, I’ve realized that I have taken a few different directions. I kind of feel like I’ve been walking on a path and then just kept walking where I was drawn to. And now, I feel like even though I didn’t set out on a certain path, I love where I’m going.
A new online store
I’m so excited to introduce my new online store via Shopify. Click here to check it out. I’ve always had an Etsy shop and I’ll keep some my items there but Shopify has given me a little more flexibility and seemed like a better fit. It’s still a work in progress and we’ll be adding more items soon, but I’m so excited about where it’s at.
handmade gifts & decor
I’ve been working with my sister this past year creating lots of handmade gift and home decor items. We’ve had so much fun doing this and it has really grown into a sweet little business. A lot of our items are in my online store but we have also been doing lots of custom items – wedding gifts, wood signs, centerpiece arrangements, home design ideas – all meaningful pieces that are really exciting to work on.
In addition to working with my sister, my niece who is a recent college graduate with an art and photography degree, has been helping me with developing my store. Her photography skills are amazing and she has really upgraded my photos has developed my site and brand message. It’s amazing work!
So with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we’ve created some beautiful, unique gift items. Our wood signs, watercolor art, one-of-a-kind centerpieces, and gift packages that incorporate items from small, local businesses are perfect for gift giving. I enjoy shopping at the big chains a lot too, but unique handmade gifts and home decor can’t be beat.
