These headbands are beautiful! I absolutely love them! They are just what is needed for a hint of spring at this time of year and for a pop of color any time of the year. Thank you so much and keep up the great work!!
You Won't Believe How Happy Wear Started...
Happy Wear began as an extracurricular project for the Young Entrepreneurs Marketplace event in Denver, CO. Kids are challenged to start think up and start their own business and sell what they make at an annual marketplace event. They learn the ropes of starting a company and all that is involved in running a business. Being a seriel entrepreneur, I of course dove head first into the project with Scout, my daughter as I love to start and shape companies.
Having never crafted a day in my life, and I mean NEVER... I went to the craft store and told Scout she had to figure out what she wanted to make to sell. I was confused and lost in the aisles. It was totally overwhelming and scary.
Scout began creating paperclip necklaces that were varied in color and size. They are so fun, bright and happy... and immediately after seeing her first necklace something clicked for both of us... and HAPPY WEAR was born and has spiraled into something quite magical!
The initial event that spawned HAPPY WEAR was amazing and we both found a LOVE for making things with our hands and learning new techniques, skills and ways to create.
There isn't a day that goes by where one of us isn't crafting, making, tinkering and thinking of the next thing we want to make! We share ideas and have so much of fun together! We are the best of business partners and I love being able to share this experience with my daughter while also finding a life long hobby and passion for creating and making.
This truly has been the most magical, unexpected gift and Scout and I are just getting started!
