2019 came in like a lamb in my household. K was in bed by 9 & my husband and I watched the ball drop on television and went straight to bed. 2018 was such a monumental building year for us. It was mostly all great things, some not so great but we are not complaining.
2018 is the year that I officially started my business, Crafty Bombshell Designs LLC. From one of my previous posts, 3’ x 3’ Local Farm Sign I talked about my sign making business a little. But a little more history about it is that in February of 2018, I was sought out by an old high school classmate, Stephanie over at The Little White Cabin in Roxbury, CT. She had plans in motion to open a small home decor store in her hometown & wanted to know if I was interested in making hand-painted signs to sell there. I had been trying my hand at some signs a few months prior, and she had seen them and my potential. I owe this new dream of mine to her and her insight!
March started my official business with tax & name officially registered. Since then, I have been going non-stop. I love this work, making things with my hands is something I was born to do. I come from a very creative family background, my mother is an amazing artist, as is my brother over at Tru Boo Images – Instagram. My Father & other brother are geniuses when it comes to building anything out of wood (or other materials). Even still my other brother & sister are wizards with all things computer. Our family is very talented & I’m proud the I’ve inherited it too!
2018 was great for business. I ended the year with my products in three separate stores, The Little White Cabin in Roxbury CT, The Brush & Pallet in Harwinton CT & Kelly’s Crystals right in my hometown of Torrington CT!
My goal for the next year is to get into three more boutique stores, start an online store & create new and exciting items for you! I want to push myself to learn new styles & techniques, new crafts such as candle making & stained glass, and also make connections within my community. 2019 will be an even better year and I cannot wait to share it with you!
Have a happy New year! & until next time,
Stay #FashionablyCrafty !
