The Maker Series

As a maker and small business owner, I feel that it is so important to support other makers and artists like myself.

One of the things I feel so strongly about is sharing whatever knowledge and support that I can offer so that others can possibly be inspired to take a chance in pursuing their own hopes and dreams. This is actually one of the reasons why I started this blog.

I certainly don't have it all figured out. Every day is a learning experience. But something that I have learned as a creative is the importance of connecting with others like myself. Every single person has their own story and from their story you can learn so much.

Last year, I was gifted a book called In the Company of Women by Grace Bonney. She is the founder of Design*Sponge. The book is filled with makers, artists, etc. that share their stories with the world. It's incredibly inspiring and most definitely inspired me to work on a series of my own where I can share stories from makers and artists as well. And although that book does share stories from people who are pretty accomplished already, one of the crucial factors in this series would be to share stories from creatives who are just starting out as well as those who already have established businesses. No matter how "established" you are as a creative you will always have something to offer.

I'm really excited about this series. My hope is that OUR stories will be the beginning of YOUR story. Live your dreams and never give up.
