Why a hard whack in the head by the Universe is probably the best thing that ever happened to me

Cloudcake is the product of a long bumpy journey filled with perils and unexpected encounters.

In real life I was a University graduate working my way up through the ranks in the advertising business.
Sound glamorous right? And it probably was. But I was miserable.
I’ve sat through countless meetings and spent hours and hours at my desk looking lively and interested while I secretly was scouring the net for my next fix of creativity. I listed products when I should be writing briefs, searching for ‘that’ specific item, when I should be placating a client and just longing to be home, feeding my addiction to all things creative.

I spent so many years thinking that the job-satisfaction would turn up eventually. Berating myself for not valuing my position and education and telling myself that I just had to hang in there. That soon, soon, I would find a job where I felt home and at-ease. That the lump in my stomach and the constricted chest would abate if I just worked harder. But it never did.

And then I got fired. Nothing dramatic, but quite a blow none the less.

And I thought long and hard about striking out on my own. But boy, there is a loooong way from having a small business on the side to gambling it all and so, I ended up accepting another ‘great’ job.
And once again I died a little inside every time I had to go to work. And the lump in my stomach got bigger and I forgot how it felt to breathe freely.
I was miserable to say the least.

But sometimes you get a friendly reminder by the Universe. A pleasant little nudge from karma/destiny/God or whatever you choose to name the deciding power in your life. A small voice, that tenderly like the breath of a butterfly whispers: ' Hi friend. this is not the right path for you'. other times you get a stinging slap, a kick in the nether parts and a really hard hit over the head while an ogre shouts his message with a breath smelling of dead animals marinated in old milk: 'You humongous idiot. You dumb-wit. For crying out loud, I already told you once that you need to go another way. Now get it, for chrissake'.
And thus I got fired –again!

How’s that for Destiny making a point?

And I can honestly say that it was the best day ever. It felt kind of surreal sitting there in the stuffy meeting with a COO who was close to tears and who felt horrible having to sack me. And inside I was just shouting with pure joy.

A joy that still sits in my chest, allowing me to finally breathe freely, because using my hands and my imagination, utilizing my creative side, brings me so much joy and fulfillment.
And the whole process of building my own empire –on my own terms is so much fun (and hard work)
Sure there are setbacks and days where I wonder if I’ve gone mad to think I can make this work. But I try my best to see the setbacks as valuable experiences that helps me to grow and learn. And well, a little madness never hurt anyone.

I feel incredibly humble about the fact that there actually are people willing to pay money for the things I create and I’m so thankful for the opportunity and I still have a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that right now I live a dream I have aspired to ever since I spent hours and hours dressing up my Barbies with my mother’s fabric-scraps.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned so far is that the Universe will provide. Sometimes in a very unexpected manner. But if you persevere and most of all keep a curious mind, great things WILL happen.

Hi and welcome to my Etsy shop
All my items are one of a kind and handmade with love and care by me.
But, as the term 'handmade' implies, this stuff is made by my hands and even though I do my very best to obtain a nice finish, a department store-look can not be expected.
If you have any questions or comments, please do contact me <3
