Even though I have a lot of experience it was so lovely to find Bonnie and her Flourish membership. Then followed up by the immersion course for all the amazing support, community, and answers I was looking for and didn’t even know I needed. My favorite thing is how it is all presented, it’s all so inspiring and it got me inspired to start my own brand to create beautiful work I want to see in the world. I love I can come and go when I feel like diving in again or need answers answered.
I have been in the fashion & textile industry for about 19 years then I took a small break to have my daughter, while on maternity leave I felt the need to continue to be creative so I started drawing and did the 100-day challenge. Thinking I would return to my day job I was just drawing for fun.
Then I found Bonnie and all she had to offer with a lot of answers and opportunities. I had never really thought about doing it for myself. It felt all too hard and I pushed the ideas aside, but after hearing Bonnie’s story and joining her Flourish membership out of curiosity, I started to feel like I could create my own brand if I just took things slowly and did even just one small thing a day that moved me closer to my big dreams and goals. With the help of the community and having an easy-to-follow pathway Bonnie made it all feel so achievable.
The thing that held me back from joining immersion was the cost. I didn’t know because of my experience in Adobe if it would be worth the money for me. It was a big investment and I already knew so much from my long career designing and product development, but I took the dive. I wanted to invest in myself to get me on a new pathway where I had a different lifestyle. A lifestyle where I could work from anywhere, have flexible work hours, and put my family first when I needed to. Also, build something that was all mine that I could be proud of.
Even though I came into it with lots of experience, it just added another layer and gave me clarity on what I needed to do next to carve a new pathway for myself. I left feeling inspired and that I had all the tools I needed.
I then felt the need to dive in a little deeper and I was ready to kick start my brand and get creating my first Hufton Studio collection.
I have now completed 8 collections & have my designs with 4 online fabric retailers, I have done over 20 licensing collaborations for wallpaper, wall decals with Loomwell, Cloth Nappies brands, Baby Blankets/wraps, Packaging, Kids accessories, and more. I have built a growing email list, a beautiful website, a following of 16k and I just can’t wait to see what 2022 will bring!
