Since we started this online store, a lot of customers have been asking about who the creator of Whimsy's Jewels is and have been expressing interest in the person behind the designs, brand and thoughts of this company.
So here I am! Having the privilege of writing the first blog of the year! A lot of people have asked me why "whimsical" was the idea that fuels the brand of Whimsy's Jewels. Ever since I could remember, I have been attracted to whimsical moments like flying kites, watching hot air balloons, going to carnivals, farmers' markets, picking bright colors and lights for decorations and indulging in human connections that provide the warmest of memories. When Whimsy's Jewels was beginning, I wanted people to feel the warmth, joy and love that I do when I think of the most whimsical moments in life. I wanted customers to feel like they were included and that there was something for them in their own personalities. So my hope is that every person can be a 'Whimsy Woman.'
As a Whimsy woman myself, I am very excited about 2018! I'm the type of person who can get easily sappy in the beginning of the year. I love thinking about the year before and all the lessons, amazing memories and relationships it brought. I'm not sure what 2017 brought for you, but for me, 2017 was a fantastic year and taught me many things. I consider it the most precious year I've experienced yet! 2017 has left me looking to 2018 with excitement. I want to celebrate each day for its blessings, gifts, the world around me and lessons ahead.
According to the dictionary, the word wonder means "a feeling of surprise mingled with admiration, caused by something beautiful, unexpected, unfamiliar, or inexplicable." I feel like this word is perfect for what I am hoping to capture for 2018. I hope that in the grey and winter days ahead that you can capture this focus too. I hope in the mundane routines that a touch of kindness from others, beautiful days in nature and the goodness of the world we live in stirs your soul.
And if you do have your wondrous moments this year, please, send me an email and tell me about it! Because that will leave me with a sense of wonder! Let's make a ripple of wonder!
So here is to your wondrous 2018, to your goals, to the gifts and lessons your receive!
