I've always considered myself a creator, an artist, someone who enjoys making things unique and I never really had intentions on my "hobby" developing into a business. As a former elementary teacher, when I decided to leave the classroom, I pursued my "hobby" full-time, in order to create a little more income for my family.
2.) What inspired you to create invitations and stationery?
I come from a large extended family, and celebrating sweet moments in life is what we love to do. Therefore, creating uniquely themed invitations and stationery has been something that I've always enjoyed doing. I designed my own wedding invitations and programs, many years ago and now I love creating keepsakes for others as they celebrate sweet moments in life!
3.) What is the best part of being a creative entrepreneur?
Being a creative entrepreneur allows me to be more present for my family & children in a way that I couldn't before. It offers a flexible work schedule, let's me use my talents to help others, and gives me the opportunity to help people all over the world.
4.) How has Flourish helped or inspired you?
The Flourish community has helped me realize the potential in my talents, to see beyond the any limitations that I had unconsciously set for myself. Flourish provides such a supportive network of like-minded people that work together and allows me/us to turn our small business dreams into a reality.
5.) What does the future look like for “Sweet Life Designs”?
The long-term vision for my business is to eventually grow into a rustic events venue & planning service that reaches my regional community. No matter how my business grows, I will always stay true to my roots of natural & rustic inspiration. Exciting times are ahead!
