Welcome to our blog!
See what's brewing!
When I got my sewing machine for last Christmas, I also got some pretty sweet gear and accesories to go along with it. One of the most handy items I received is my sewing box. It's pretty self explanitory, it's a box that holds my sewing necessities.
Curious about what's lingering inside? Lets take a look!
I constantly get asked over and over if I truly love Love Struck and the work it involves. My answer is always yes, and to me, it's an obvious answer because I am head over heels in love with what I do.
People looking from the outside see me, a 23 year old girl, who this past year has made many sacrafices for Love Struck. Who has chosen to work full time and come home and work some more for my own personal business. Who has even declined invitations to go out sometimes because I have a quota I want to meet before a craft show. I truly believe people think my time spent working on my business is sometimes not worth while because I am only 23 and they feel I should be out every weekend and by staying home I am somehow secluding myself.
Everybody is entitled to their opinion.
But what people don't continue to ask is, why am I in love with what I do. Why I work 40 hour weeks to come home and work more. Why I wake up early on the weekends and begin my day of cutting, pinning, sewing and so on. Why I enjoy going to craft fairs or vendor events on my days off.
So why do I love doing this?
I love Love Struck because it's the only thing that allows my mind to stop thinking, even if it's for a few hours. It gives my head a break and it keeps my hands occupied. I'm addicted to the feeling of creating something, of creating the vision I have in my mind into something people can use, something people can love.
I love Love Struck because it is mine, I make the final decisions after the input I am grateful for from the ones I love most. I enjoy not only creating products but creating my business, growing something that means so much to me. I keep going because I'm excited to see what can come next, what new things I can make, the new challenges I'll accept.
I love Love Struck because it has always been a dream of mine to own my own business. My dreams and goals continue to grow and to flourish. I often sit and think about my future with Love Struck, and I don't see its end, I only see the opportunities it can bring me. How can somebody not love the hope of great opportunity?
I love Love Struck because it fulfills me. It makes me feel good about the talent I have, it makes me feel proud of the skills I have gained and will continue to fine tune. It makes me feel like I am capable of so much more than I could ever dream of.
I could continue to list the reasons why I love what I have begun to built, but I think you get the general idea.
But just know that when I stay home to work, it's because I choose to do so because it makes me feel great. It's something I do for me and I think that's important. I believe that the sacrafices I have already made and the sacrafices I will have to make in the future are worth it. I believe that those who love me the most understand that and are proud of what I am doing and the choices I have chosen to make.
I love what I am doing and where my life is taking me. I love that I am able to share it with so many. I hope that my love for Love Struck will fuel it's growth and the support I get from all of you will make my dreams continue to come true.
That is why I love Love Struck.
I've deciced that Love Struck needs their own theme song.
I picture myself sewing or scrapbooking while singing some sweet theme song lyrics. Or I could sing to customers as they're browsing and buying items at our events. If I felt ambitious, I could even make up a dance to do while I sang a beautiful melody! I do have some great moves I'd be happy to bust out!
As I picture it in my mind, I realize....maybe my singing isn't the best idea. I like to pretend I can sing especailly when I'm in my car alone. But, I should be honest and tell you right now, I can't sing. So the more and more I thought about it, the idea of me singing my own theme song, just isn't a great idea. Now dancing to a theme song is a whole other story.
But I still really think we deserve our own song. Maybe one of these days I could get somebody to sing a fantastic tune and I'll choreograph a few wild moves. It could be a new trend.... so great ready for it!
Seriously though, have ideas? Send them our way, lets make something happen! If you make up a theme song, send us a video! We'll even give away some prizes if you can get us Love Struck!
