This blog is about my adventures in creating a new women’s shoe brand, shoe design and a discussion for all shoe lovers. I have found as I’ve tripped and stumbled along the way, there seems to be no how to guide for us crazy designers or many people willing to share the map.
My way is certainly not the straight A to B path however, the journey has been very interesting to say the least. I have met many wonderful, interesting, and generous people and also some shady, strange characters along the way. Regardless of where this leads it still beats any of the “normal” jobs I’ve had thus far.
It is my intention to:
- offer my experiences the good, the bad and the crazy
- my expertise where I am able
- my opinions like them or not however, I am always willing to hear another perspective
- create a place where others can learn and contribute to this secret world of design
- offer resources as I find them
- dish about the shoes and designers we cannot get enough of
It is my hope that being very honest (even when it’s not pretty) about who I am and how this goes will inspire and guide others that are also taking a leap of faith. Or perhaps encourage those that are considering chasing their own dreams. I encourage all to add their insight and commentary as I am looking to learn from you along the way.
I am the owner of an up and coming shoe brand, or at least that’s what the goal is. I am also the mother of one beautiful, brilliant child, and a wife to the best husband anyone could ask for. I live with my two German Shepherds who I love the same as if they were my children. More than anything else; I am a woman who is doing her best to chase all of her dreams and to serve the world in a meaningful way.
My goal is to make sure that I can look back at the end of my days and see that I did what my heart told me to, that I made a difference in the world and that I leave knowing that I accomplished what I came here to do. Currently my two greatest passions are designing shoes and saving dogs, I am hoping that one will fund the other, either way I am going to give it my best shot.
