I’m back! Last time I shared a little about me. Whew, that’s tough. I’ve never been one to like to talk about myself. Ask me about one of my hobbies or passions, better yet ask me about my kids! I never struggle for words about any of those topics. But myself? Definitely tough stuff for me. But it’s something I’m working on so we will see how it goes.
However, I’m off the hook this time because I want to share with you all about Bits of Love Creations and how it came about!
A couple of years ago my friend, Britaney, asked me to make her some dainty newborn headbands for photo shoots. She owns Got 2B Me Photography. You can find her here. While she appreciates the large flowers and bows on headbands that are all the rage, she was looking for light, airy, and dainty for all those fresh newbie heads. It’s creative! And as with all creative challenges, I was on totally on board! After the first few I created for her, Brit asked me for a business name so she could tag me in teaser photos she would be sharing on social media. It was her thought that potential customers and other photographers would be able to contact me and something could come of my crafting.
For days I brainstormed/stressed over a simple name. But for me, if I was going to do this… it had to have meaning. Ultimately, as with almost all things in my life, that meaning revolves around my kids. My kids are my love. They are my heart. They’re bits and pieces of myself and my husband. One of the most fun parts of my journey in raising them has been watching their personalities and character come to light. Seeing the bits of myself and my husband join with their own qualities to become their amazing selves has been an excitingly wild ride.
Enter Bits of Love Creations.
So with the name in place, I created a page on Facebook for Bits of Love Creations. The feedback from the photography clients (hold up, did I forget to mention I also assist on those newbie shoots with Britaney? Oops, well I do!) was super positive! I was having a blast and Brit was loving the fresh stash of headbands and tiebacks I supplied to her. It’s the little things. I create the little things that can ultimately end up making a big impact for the little ones we hold near and dear to us. How could I not love what I do?
About a year after I began making these for Brit’s photography sessions, I wanted to expand my talents to see what else I could create for the most special littles. I had been doing diaper cakes for years for friends and family. But I wanted to try my hand at infant bodysuits. Oh my goodness! The possibilities are endless! Headbands, tiebacks, bodysuits, even barefoot sandals for girls and bow ties for boys! I was hooked!
So here we are. I have so many plans for this little journey. New and exciting things are coming soon, and I’ve decided to give this little blogging thing a try, too. I am so blessed in life to have so much support from friends and family. Who knows where all of this will lead? I certainly don’t have an answer for that, but I do know that I intend to make the most of it and enjoy every step we take… together!
