Hi + Welcome
If you're reading this, I'm glad you found your way here + I'm grateful for your support. I'm treating February like it's the new January. ANyone else out there feeling the same? It seems to have taken me a whole month to simply regroup + get my 2018 goals together .
So i'm using this post to introduce myself + say thank you in ADVANCE for sharing in the journey of narrow Lines co.
I RECENTLY MOVED BACK TO NORTH CAROLINA FROM A YEAR STINT LIVING IN SAN FRANCISCO, CA, WHERE I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO WORK FOR A LEATHER GOODS COMPANY. WHILE I LEARNED MORE THAN I EVER HOPED OR EXPECTED TO, I REALIZED MY TRUE DESIRE WAS TO DO THE WORK FOR MYSELF. SO I LEFT... AND HERE I AM in Winston Salem, nc. BROKE. VULNERABLE + INSECURE. AND MEANDERING MY WAY THROUGH SMALL BUSINESS TRIALS + TRIBULATIONS BUT ALSO MOMENTS OF COMPLETE SATISFACTION. ANYTHING WORTH WORKING FOR OR FIGHTING FOR CAN'T COME WITHOUT IT'S PAINS.
I'VE BEEN SLOWLY WORKING ON THE IDEA OF NARROW LINES CO. FOR THE PAST FIVE YEARS NOW. LEAVING IT ALONE AT TIMES + OTHER TIMES DIVING INTO FULL FORCE. BEING A MAKER AS WELL AS BEING PART OF THE MOVEMENT OF MAKERS IS SOMETHING THAT BRINGS SO MUCH hope + MOTIVATION. through all my travels + moving seeing so many others thrive on doing what they love gave me the little nudge i need to believe I could do that same.
Being a PART OF A COMMUNITY THAT BELIEVES IN ITSELF + BRINGs PEOPLE TOGETHER is almost constantly inspiring. that need to bring BEAUTIFUL + GOOD THINGS INTO THE WORLD connects us in a way that allows us to share a certain ENERGY THAT MOVES US to be better + Do better in this world. I can't wait to connect with other makers/designer/artists that are following their dreams.
so here's to growing as a maker + a small business! I'm excited to be doing this full time + pursuing the path that my heart + Mind keep pulling me towards.
