"For where two or three gather in my name, there I am among them.”
The sense of community lifted this girl up at the right time. What a treat it was to be involved in the Northwest Arkansas Boutique Show benefiting the Northwest Arkansas Junior League this past weekend! From the opening prayer before shoppers walked through the doors to the free hugs Vanessa Miller was handing out, it was an all out positive experience.
As a small business owner AND maker, you get so caught up in your business "bubble" and loose sight of how important "community" is. I was beyond floored and humbled by the people that came by our booth that said, "I read your story in Citiscapes" or "you are such an inspiration" and "I love your products". I was just honored to represent my Brand well. I met so many people in our oh so caring community, I am grateful.
It was also nice to network and have fellowship with fellow makers like Brandy of Bella Vita Jewelry, Leslie of 838 designs and Kristen of Art & Soul as well as small business owners like the famous Amy Hannon of Euna Mae's, Jenessa of Swanky Sooie and Elizabeth of GLO Limited. Usually I am working, as WE all are as small business owners, networking is hard BUT with us all under the same roof we can be ourselves by chatting and cutting up!
So THANK YOU to our NWA community for making this "Small Town Designer" feel so loved and special.
