Every. Single. Day. I am living my DREAM! From the days of playing "store" in my parents basement, my course has always been to run my own shop!
I have always worked in retail. Starting out at the usual mall stores to working for a TOP Harley-Davidson dealership in Canada. I then took off to be a sales rep for a high end Harley-Davidson Apparel company where I got to travel Central and Eastern CANADA.
Then came 2 babies... I was a "Stay at Home Mom" whatever that means LOL. All the while, I couldn't help but feel like I was missing something... I dabbled a bit in crafts and making signs and wreaths...
Right before she was born, like 2 weeks before... I had decided that I wanted to design and decorate porches for Fall & Holiday.
While my son was at daycare I would take my daughter with me and she would sleep all day long ( as newborns do) while I would design and decorate the porches of some of the most beautiful homes! I was in my element! Working when I wanted and feeling like I was a little bit closer to finding my purpose.
A year later I had created a pretty good following of clients on Facebook that were my regulars and the word had spread with referrals.
It was January 5th, 2015... I was sitting in bed writing in my journal and I decided right then and there, that I would OPEN my own shop! A place where I could create and teach to other women just like me!
Women that wanted to learn, do things on their own. Feel a sense of accomplishment at the end of the day!
My shop is FULL of the best QUALITY. HANDMADE.CANADIAN. product that you could find! I source out all of my suppliers and vendors to bring the best of the best!
I hold weekly DIY Nights where women or men! Can come and learn how to make something awesome! There are always LOTS of different products being made so it is a great opportunity to scope out your next project!
Thanks for taking the time to learn a bit about me and my shop!
I look forward to meeting you in person and maybe teaching you in an upcoming workshop!
