It has been eons since I’ve written on my blog! I launched my beanie biz on Etsy in November this year and thing’s took off faster than anticipated. Thinking it would be fun, I thought I’d share with you what I find rewarding about making beanies.
Aside from the excuses to visit the craft store unaccompanied while my hubby stays home to babysit, and the need to be on Pinterest pinning ideas and finding inspiration… there are 4 main reasons I find this so rewarding.
4 Rewarding Reasons
One – I get to share my story.
I’ve tried, I’ve failed, I’ve felt alone and lost in the diapers and dishes of motherhood. I’ve been there. And I love sharing hope and encouragement to the woman trying to keep it all together. There is joy and happiness to be had in the mundane of life and it is in those slow and hard moments that we learn and grow the most!
Two – I get to help speak love and inspiration over other women’s lives through the personalized metal tags.
The messages that women have spoken over their lives is nothing short of inspirational. I love getting to hear a part of their stories and the why behind their personalized message.
Three – I get to play a part in making a women feel beautiful
Stylish beanies are my focus. There are many cute and decorated beanies to be found but, the goal I have is to help each women to feel uniquely beautiful and fashionable. Comfort is a must for the items I create, and so, I tie the two together – stylish comfort.
Four – I get to feel the gratification of accomplishing something
At the end of the day all I want to feel is accomplished. It’s a need for me to be able to relax at the end of the day.
Being a stay at home and seeing rooms cleaned and then get destroyed milliseconds after… it’s hard to feel accomplished some days. Though I know all of it counts, and those messy day’s and moments are what I will miss when they are gone, there are day’s I need to physically see thing’s done.
Creating something beautiful from start to finish is one way to see something accomplished.
Shipping packages off filled with beanies that women will wear and enjoy is another. It’s one of the most gratifying parts of this business!
Last but not least
It’s unbelievably rewarding to get review’s on my Etsy page from women who are in love with the beanies they receive. Playing any part in making someone’s day a little more special is one of the many reasons why I do what I do.
Crochet and sewing is a passion and skill I developed from my mother and grandmother. Something I share a little more of on my About Me Page.
One of the most recent inspiring comments I received was when a women told me she began to learn crochet because she was inspired by my beanies. That was the ultimate compliment!
If I can live a life that inspires other to try and create – I will feel like I am playing a roll in God’s greater plan.
I can’t thank you ladies enough for entrusting me to keep your beautiful noggins warm. Until next time!
