finding my voice…

I have to share an announcement about my Oscraps store


I wanted to explain out loud why I'm closing this sweet store to show you a little more of my creative process:  


Last year I had to make a tough decision to leave my Stampin' UP! demonstrator business because of a conflict of interest with my Creative Team responsibilities at Oscraps. After having a business that afforded me new crafting materials and an outlet for my creative being, I needed to replace it. My organic progression was to move to the digital side of things since I was so involved at Oscraps and had some digital designing knowledge with Photoshop. 


So I approached Vicki, the owner at Oscraps and to my delight, she accepted me as an intern and worked with me through some designing tools and protocols. So, as you know, I opened my store in January of this year. 


In preparing for different kits and getting inspiration for these digital kits, I went to the sewing machine. My creative insides kept returning to quilting. I started to research quilting and mini projects and started to really find my creative voice through fabric, stitching and embroidery. 


In June, I launched my new Etsy store. I was still so new at this creative business, I wasn't quite sure about my creative voice. I've since spent the summer starting to hone my creative voice and prioritize my work. The more I realized I wanted to up the game in the Etsy store and local craft shows, the more I realized that I didn't have time to spend learning more of the craft of digital designing. I also found I didn't have enough time to devote to leading the creative team for which I left my Stampin' Up! business. I made that decision because of the people…and I missed those people even though I was still checking in daily. I didn't have to time to interact the way a leader should…innovating new programs, ideas, processes…and just plain hanging out in the Os…


All of this to say, I'm ready to focus Sally's Angelworks even more. Obviously my family, my homeschooling and my music are a huge priority in my life. But as far as my business goes, I'm finding my voice in Fabric Arts. And being passionate about singing, I understand the "voice" thing. (I'm developing my real voice, too!! It's quite the journey!!) 

God puts desires in our hearts for a reason. I'm following those desires…and I'm dedicating them back to Him…

Thanks for listening to my story…

and thank you for walking this journey with me……

and a special thank you to Vicki Stegall at Oscraps for giving me the chance to chase a creative dream,  also for showing me direction, love and support! (I'm here for you, too, hun!!)
