Can you sum yourself up in 3 sentences? Give it a go!
I am a wedding addict. I love all things wedding. From the big impacts to the little touches, wedding decorations are my favorite items to create.
Tell us about what you sell:
As of right now Company Forty Two is focusing on table decor for weddings and special occasions. We are in the process of adding to our line but right now we create table numbers, place / escort cards, menus, cupcake toppers and wedding props.
What is your favorite thing about creating?
My favorite thing is seeing a happy client. When a client loves their design it is truly worth all the hard work and effort that I put into my products.
Where do you find your inspiration?
I get my inspiration from color palette combinations, vintage finds and antique shops. I try to keep my eyes open when I am just out and about because you never know when inspiration will hit you.
Do you have any advice for other sellers?
Don’t give up! Running your own business is difficult. There is no else but you to do the heavy lifting. Weather your business is a success is all up to you. When you hit a rough patch try to work through it. If that doesn’t work try taking a break and then come back to your problem with fresh eyes. Sometimes a little break is all you need to recharge your batteries and give yourself a new outlook.
