I’ve always had a love affair with creation. Since I was a child, I handmade my gifts or combined toys to design something new. Fast forward twenty years, and I’m still making my gifts every holiday and designing new ways to do things.
I’ve forever been the friend you call when you’re trying to brainstorm the best gift or plan the perfect party, and for the longest time, I didn’t give it much thought other than it comes natural to me.
After two floods in our home within a year, I knew it was a sign. I wasn’t sure what it meant but who has multiple home floods within a year due to unrelated circumstances? It was during our home repair that I gazed at the open walls and destroyed hardwood floors that I thought, “I can rebuild this, and I can share all of the details. I can inspire others by sharing. This is my calling.” Three chandeliers later, here’s where our story begins.
