<< New to the Blog - My Journey with Tea >>
May 22, 2020
I have been a maker for the last 10 years of my life. Officially running Moon.Flower.Child as an outlet to sell my art since 2013. It’s been a wild journey up until now...I have always found myself enticed to be a maker, to create & to design.
Mama mode & Jewelry Making was my thing and I was loving every minute of it. I found myself barely having the time to finish making any of my jewelry I started making, and the sewing...don't even get me started. My work surfaces minimized to the kitchen counter wasn't going to work for continuing to design & making clothing like I used to. Being a Mama is a blessing, but being a Mama and hustling the business world is a challenge. Honestly, I found it to be too much to make and sell and market and book-keep and, and, and, and...the list honestly could go on. It's crazy how much you learn about running a business when you are actually busy running a business. So, I made the difficult decision of putting my “making” on pause, that's not to say I won't come back to it, but for now, it's on pause.
I am so proud to say that Moon.Flower.Child has evolved. Evolved to be a business that supports other makers, making time for new projects which I will share with you later in this blog post. A business that spreads the love of what other makers create, inspires and shares small businesses run by women, crafters, eco friendly warriors, spiritual adventurers...I love to support the people behind these topics.
So with that, If you didn't know much about some of the vendors we carry, here are some to read about...I have met many of these makers, and have loved their work from the beginning.

Malabella Jewels blossomed from a burning desire to create, spread love, and chase dreams. Founder Hannah Skedsvold came to yoga in 2013 in search of a healing mechanism for her anxiety, depression, and a feeling of being stuck. As she delved deeper into her practice, she came across these magical strings of gemstones known as Mala Beads. If there was ever a time in her life when things clicked, it was then. A young entrepreneur and new yogi, Hannah taught herself how to handcraft Mala Beads, a process that began to heal her mind, body, and soul. For every piece sold, we plant a tree!

Now that you know a little more about the vendors of Moon.Flower.Child that leads me on to share with you our new Monthly Live stream...New Moon Moments.

Almost as though it were a podcast in a live video format streaming directly from our Facebook Page. There are so many people in my life that are interesting, that I miss talking with and that I want to bring closer into the world of Moon.Flower.Chid. Not only is it a great opportunity for me to reconnect and to share the wealth of knowledge that surrounds my community, but it's a way for you to get to know more about our makers, learn about their spaces, their inspirations, their hopes and dreams...aspirations and so much more from the community of people that Live our Life of Living.
