A Glimpse into My Current Endeavors

A Glimpse into My Current Endeavors

Hello, lovely souls! Today, I'm going to shake things up a bit and share a little glimpse into my world as a co-owner of Sisters & Brushes—a cute little clay business that my little sister and I started. I figured it's time for a fun, chit-chatty post, because let's face it, sometimes oversharing can be a blast!

So, it all began when my amazing little sister and I decided to embark on a creative journey together, channelling our love for art and clay into something truly unique.

You see, my sister and I have always been inseparable. We've spent countless hours exploring our artistic sides, experimenting with various mediums, and dreaming up endless possibilities.

And that's when the idea struck us: why not turn our shared passion into a small business? With eager hearts and eager hands, Sisters & Brushes was born.

At Sisters & Brushes, we specialize in customization, every day brings new opportunities for growth and artistic expression. From sculpting tiny whimsical creatures to crafting personalized trinkets that hold stories within, our little corner of the world has become a hub of creativity and imagination. 

And I have the immense joy of sharing this creative adventure with my amazing sister, my partner-in-crime.

The journey has been nothing short of amazing if I do say so myself.

Let me start by saying that owning a small business is no easy task. It requires dedication, hard work, and a passion that keeps you going when things get tough. Sisters & Brushes began as a humble venture between my sister and me, born out of our shared love for art and our desire to turn our passion into something more. We started by creating little clay trays and a few jewellery pieces, and now we've expanded to offer more intricate clay dish designs, miniatures and figurines!

A peek into our daily lives

Let's talk about what's been occupying a huge chunk of my time lately. One of the most exciting projects we've taken on recently is expanding our product line!

We've been brainstorming and experimenting with new clay techniques, exploring different customization options, and sourcing high-quality materials to bring our customers even more variety. It's been a whirlwind of creativity, and I can't wait to unveil these new creations very soon.

In addition to product development, we've also been focusing on building a strong online presence.

Social media has become such a powerful tool for businesses, and we want to connect with as many people as possible. We've been crafting engaging content, sharing behind-the-scenes peeks into our creative process, and collaborating with other brands. Social media has not only helped us reach a wider audience but has also allowed us to build a genuine community of like-minded individuals who appreciate the beauty of handmade creations.

It's amazing to witness the supportive community that surrounds Sisters & Brushes, and I'm incredibly grateful for all the love and encouragement we receive.

Aside from that, I'm so thrilled to put my photography skills, which I honed through blogging, to good use. I began experimenting with different techniques, angles, and lighting to elevate the visual storytelling on Sisters & Brushes. It's pretty much what I've been occupied with.

I can proudly say that almost all the photos and footage you see on Sisters & Brushes were taken by yours truly. *Insert happy dance!*

Of course, I know there's still plenty of room to grow and refine my skill, but the love and passion I put into each shot make this journey incredibly rewarding. Beyond the technical aspect of photography, it's the emotional connection that truly makes this experience special. When I look through the lens, I see more than just a scene; I see stories waiting to be told.

I simply adore the work I get to do now. It truly feels like where I belong, you know what I mean?

Every day, I wake up excited to dive into the world of both creativity and entrepreneurship. From brainstorming new ideas to developing marketing strategies, my days are filled with a whirlwind of activities. But you know what? I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. The fulfilment I feel when a customer falls in love with one of our creations is beyond measure!

The thrill of life's highs and lows

However, it's not all sunshine and rainbows and butterflies.

Balancing the demands of running a small business, managing orders and logistics to marketing and customer service, and pouring heart and soul into every clay creation can be quite the challenge.

It's inevitable, they say. And it's true. 

It can be *a lot* to handle, sometimes. But I wouldn't have it any other way. To me, each challenge has been an opportunity for growth, both personally and professionally.

That said, running Sisters & Brushes has allowed me to grow not only as an entrepreneur but also as a person. It has pushed me to step out of my comfort zone, face challenges head-on and constantly learn and adapt. I've discovered skills I never knew I had, from mastering social media marketing to honing my leadership abilities. Each hurdle I encounter is an opportunity for growth.

The process of creating something from scratch and turning it into a successful venture has taught me patience, resilience, and the importance of perseverance. I've learned to embrace failure as an opportunity to learn and grow, and each setback has only made me more determined to push forward. 

Embracing the journey

Amidst the organized chaos, I've discovered something profound – I'm living the dream life without even realizing it :)

Living the dream life doesn't always mean having a perfect, picture-perfect scenario.

It's about finding fulfilment in the process, embracing the ups and downs, and constantly learning and growing. All in all, Sisters & Brushes has taught me to:

Celebrate small victories, to appreciate the beauty in imperfections, and to find joy in everyday moments.

It's about finding purpose in what we do and sharing that passion with the world.

I'm surrounded by love and support from my amazing sister and the wonderful community we've built. I have the opportunity to share my passion with the world and make a difference in people's lives through art and my words. What more could I ask for, right?

If you've made it this far, thank you <3

Now you know what's been consuming my time and energy. But hey, that doesn't mean you'll get less of me here. I'll still be around because this blog is my baby after all! I'm just so beyond grateful for your support, even though I haven't been able to write on the blog as frequently lately.

Anyway, it's a wrap from me. Until next time, I hope you've enjoyed this little chit-chat! It's been such a joy to share these updates with you, and I'll try my best to keep you posted on all the exciting things coming our way.

Chase your dreams, whatever they may be. It's never too late to start something new, and with passion and perseverance, anything is possible. You never know, like me, you might be living the dream life without realizing it! :)
