It's been awhile since my last post, but with good reason. I've been busy getting an etsy.com shop up and running. Yup, I'm finally selling my handmade accessories! If we're facebook or twitter friends, then you've been kept up to date pretty well, but for the rest of you I'd like to introduce you to my shop, my baby, the beginning of my dream...
The heart and soul of AlisonSweet is upcycled eco-conscious accessories. I take cotton, jersey and viscose shirts, dresses and even yoga pants and turn them into something beautiful for you to wear.
This is just the beginning of some very BIG dreams and I cannot wait for you to check out my shop! I also make custom accessories. Some of my favorite designs have been at the request of some very cool customers. Do you have some favorite shirts you can't wear anymore, but don't want to part with? I can upcycle it into a new accessory for you.
Now for all of the thank yous and there are many!
My family for dealing with my incessant ideas and business questions and for their unending support.
My brother, Derek, for the fabulous product photos and serving as sounding board.
Danielle for amazing product photos with her backyard duckies.
Kristen, for the awesome graphic design work on my banner (above).
P-cubed - for the prayers, encouraging words, and laughter every Monday night.
Michele Whitfield, of Whitfield Consulting, for amazing business advice.
Jessica for modeling product, encouraging me to open the shop, and reminding I can do this.
Stephanie for providing laughter, kicks in the pants when I want to wimp out, and telling me the truth 100% of the time.
If I forgot to mention you by name, know I love and appreciate you!
