Hi there -
My name is Dana. I'm so thrilled about this business and thankful that the Lord lead me to it. Since I started Create & Decorate in 2018 there have been many curves in the road. I originally started by offering DIY sign painting workshops. When the pandemic hit, it decimated my business. I had to make some quick changes if I wanted to keep my business afloat. So, I started offering DIY craft kits and handmade laser cut gifts. Also, during this time, I started selling some of my digital file designs that I had created for the laser and signs on Etsy.
Also, I'm a homeschool mom. I have 3 kids. One of them is graduated. My family is my priority. Trying to balance owning a business and teaching kids can be tough. I don't have as many hours in the day as other business owners. With creating files, putting together DIY craft kits and making handmade gifts, I was spread too thin and I wasn't doing any one thing very well. With that, I've decided to focus solely on designing files for other laser owners. I'm excited about this next curve in the road. I feel like I finally have the time to focus my energies better.
