I closed my shop for the summer.
That was one of the scariest things ever, but it was absolutely necessary.
The inundation of orders for kits was amazing, and yet at the same time I was drained. I had all of these big dreams and plans for Lovely Messes, but I couldn’t bring any into being with the amount of orders. I was unbelievably grateful and yet I knew I could offer you more if I just had the time to do it.
So I pulled all physical kits out of the shop.
Over the summer I took vacations without worry and my kids to the pool without having to ship orders every afternoon.
During all this break time, I was able to write down the vision that I see for Lovely Messes. Let me share it with you now.
Lovely Messes is a community of women, slowing down the pace of our lives so we can wildly pursue joy everyday. By connecting to the present moment with a needle and thread, we are discovering that joy can be found right where we are, in any situation. In a world that loves to focus on the negative, we are shining a light on the good. We are creatives, dreamers, and joy seekers, embracing our own messy lives so we can generously pour out hope into the lives of others.
I always knew that I didn’t want this business to be just about embroidery. To me embroidery encompasses so much more than a craft. It is a lifestyle, it is about slowing down and finding joy in the present moment. Because if contentment is lost, there is no room to spread hope.
I didn’t feel like my current designs were laser focused on that mission. They were simple to do, which was an important part of the equation, but I wanted more for you.
On September 7th, Lovely Messes will have a grand reopening!
