Happy birthday to me!
Today is my birthday and in honor of my birthday, I thought that this is also a great time for a Meet the Maker post to help you get to know me better and to share more about why I do what I do!
I love to draw, create, problem solve and bring joy. I also LOVE FABRIC.
I love my customers. They send me nice notes, reviews, and recommend Splash Fabric to others every day.
I also get to support and make jobs for many people in my community. During our mask mission in the heart of the pandemic, we supported 25 mostly immigrant women with full time work on which their families rely (click here to read more about the amazing people who help make our wonderful products). We pumped $450k into the local economy and are still pumping away, thanks to all your support.
I love the process of building a business. First I made kids clothes while my kids were little. Then I remodeled a series of rental houses. Now it's laminated cotton products and fabric design.
It's all about solving the next problem that is in front of me. There is an endless supply in business and sometimes triage is necessary.
It wasn't until my kids were grown that this former art teacher, outdoor enthusiast, and pattern-lover took the leap and started Splash Fabric.
I believe my greatest moments grew out of taking those big leaps and making a big SPLASH!
If I can do it, you can too!
