I am in the process of starting a new business. A hand printed textile Home Decor Fashion Accessory finished product business. Wow!.....that is a very long description. It is hard work....and it is taking longer to get "started" than I expected. I want to create a business that is sustainable so I am taking it slow (very impatiently) knowing that it will be better if I do. You know the sayings....Roman was not built in a Day......The Tortoise wins the race.....Slow and Steady. Yea...Yea...Yea....I'm trying to remember this as I work through the business building process.
Why a new business you ask? Or...maybe you didn't ask...but.....here is a quick overview of my life leading to this time and place. I had a design business for 14 years during which time we raised our two children. I put that business on hold when we moved to China for my husbands work. We left one kiddo in the US who was at University and we took the other kiddo, who was in high school, with us to Shanghai. While we were there, I got to travel to rural areas of the country and see textiles being printed "the old fashion" way....i.e...block printing. When we repatriated to the US we were empty nesters and I decided to go back to school and learn how to be a textile designer. It was a three year program.....and.....I was 50....almost 51....when I started the program.
And.....here I am.....finished with school and embarking on a new adventure. Stay tuned!
Thanks for stopping in!
Hugs to you,
