Meghan was a huge help to my shop progress as well as my personal confidence in being a designer on Etsy. Her tips and experiences helped me look at my work in a different light and find different methods to reach my goals. She had the right balance of bold honesty and motivating optimism. Thank you!

Meghan provided me with lots of valuable info and said if I had any questions in the future to reach out to her which is amazing because I am sure I will think of new things to ask along the way . She is very detailed in what you need to do to get your Instagram going and I would recommend her for sure !

Kansas City Made for You to Love!
When I was very young, my sister and I begged our dad to drive us down to the city market in Kansas City so we could peddle flower pens and hemp necklaces. Selling things I had made by hand was intoxicating, and I decided that I would always be a maker. Since then, I have always had a crafty business project tucked in my bag. I have carefully embroidered tiny things while bumping along the road to Tibet, and I have lounged on beaches from Thailand to Michigan carefully sorting jewelry findings. Even when I had desk jobs, my crafty business materials were always there, tucked in a drawer, ready to be poured over between spreadsheets and conference calls.
When my daughter was born in 2010, I took a break from my bohemian ways, but I remained a maker. In 2011, I opened a small brick and mortar in Denver carrying all local design. I wanted to share all I had learned with aspiring makers, and a lovely community developed around the shop.
In 2015, my husband and I decided to return to our roots in Kansas City. I naturally kept on making things, but between craft fairs and online orders, I started to miss that inspirational, collaborative part of what I did. I didn't like being a one person factory and sales team; I wanted to craft community.
So, I started a facebook group for local makers, jumped into consulting and coaching, picked up lots of teaching gigs, and finally, finally found what I love the most! I still make some of my favorite things, but custom work and helping other reach their dreams is what makes me happiest.
Instead of churning out hundreds of the same thing over and over for wholesale orders, my weeks are spent coaching entrepreneurs one day, sewing a custom dress the next, a bit of jewelry making, a crafty party or 2, and then squeezing in a few new crafty kits and other fun things for my line.
I am constantly inspired, so it's easy for me to inspire others, too! Thanks for reading my story! I'd love to hear yours, too!
My sister and I started selling handmade jewelry at a farmers market when we were kids, and we were hooked! I realized my dream of opening a brick and mortar shop in 2011, and now I spend my days crafting and exploring with Lady Eloise.
