It’s been awhile since I’ve had a moment to sit and collect my thoughts! I am sitting in my kitchen on this beautiful fall evening. The trees have started to change colors and are slowly collecting on the ground. The rain has just started to come down, sprinkling for now. And the sun has said goodnight. I just made a hot cup of my favorite coffee and thought I’d take a moment to gather my thoughts.
I’m thinking back to this past February when I decided to take the leap and open up a Facebook page to sell Toothfairy pillows that I handmake. It’s only been 9 months! I had made one for my daughter and her friends for Christmas and was basically talked into opening a small business to sell my pillows. After a month of thinking about it I decided to go for it! My Facebook page Fairytale Pillows by Amy started with a bang! Mostly orders from friends and family at first. As my pillows were shared on Facebook along with my page to my surprise my business started growing and I’ve surpassed selling pillows in just New England! One of my goals is to have a pillow in every state and I’m keeping a running list.
As my skills and confidence slowly grew I started accepting custom orders and have made a ring bearer pillow, a garter for a Bride, throw pillows, mason jar pin cushions and flower hair clips. I absolutely love a challenge and I welcome custom orders!
This past July I decided I was ready to make my own website! The entire process was fun and I love rearranging it and making it better as I learn. My website has also had amazing success! I’ve been extremely overwhelmed. I also made business cards and have just run out today! 500 cards! I wear my heart on my sleeve and also put it into everything I make! Nothing gets sent out without an approval of love from the customer ❤️ Thank you all for supporting me and sharing my website and Facebook page! It has helped me immensely and thank you to everyone who has placed an order! I love knowing a piece of my heart is out there! I also love when customers post pictures of their pillows when they receive them! It always makes my day!
Whats next? Well, with the holidays coming up I’m planning on renting a table at a few Holiday Fairs to sell my pillows and I’ve also been making a lot of flower hair clips to sell also! I’ve been keeping busy getting the pillows and everything else ready! It’s going to be a fun fall! If you have any questions feel free to contact me.
I believe that is all for now! Thank you again for taking the time to read my blog and for your support! I wouldn’t be here without any of you!
I will close by saying that I am very thankful to have found my passion and my dreams and goals grow every day. I’m happy you’re all here with me on my journey.
Here is a little sneak peak of the flower clips I’ve been working on.
