My Business Story

My Business Story

Have I ever told you the story of my business before?⁠⁠
⁠⁠
The truth is - I didn't fully start out expecting to be a small business owner! Back in Nov 2016 I was super stressed out working at my old theatre. I was just no longer enjoying the job (though I did love my coworkers) and I literally woke up one day and realised I just didn't want to go to work anymore. After 12 years of working in the industry, I left after working out my notice with no plans at all.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
At home and with nothing to do I turned to some new hobbies. I made candles for a bit and then I painted for a bit and then I did embroidery for a bit. At the start of my business embroidery was what stuck with me. I REALLY wanted to love painting but oh gosh I was bad at it. I had also started this instagram just as a way for me to document my hobbies. After making a few dinosaur embroidery hoops I thought maybe I could sell them on Etsy, so I made a business name and drew an awful logo (it was SO BAD) and made an Etsy in early 2017! I made a sale on my very first day and that's when I thought to myself "hey, I could do this!".⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Over the years my business has evolved away from embroidery to screen printed tote bags to art prints and now to stationery and pins. I'm sure it'll continue evolving as I grow as a business owner and artist!⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Next March my indie business will turn 5!! I feel like I should celebrate but I have no idea what to do so leave me a suggestion in the comments!⁠⁠
