Sharing Proof that it's Never too Late to do What You Love

Hello friend!

Starla here, creator of The Stellar Stop. Thanks so much for stopping by my shop!

I'm a mom of two grown boys with families of their own, including 7 grandbabies for me to love on! I'm also an animal lover and currently pet mom to my dog, Emmett, a Shih Tzu rescue who's 13, and my cat, Chloe, who's 16 but still acts like a kitten.

I'm a Kentucky girl at heart, growing up in Louisville then relocating to Indianapolis in 2003. My background is in medical, from office management to pharmacy, but when I moved to Michigan in 2018, I decided to start selling online.

In September of 2019, health issues forced my senior mom to leave her property of 30 years and it worked out best for her to move in with me. We know what happened next: the SHUT DOWN. I was already isolated, and life just started feeling very overwhelming with loneliness and my mom's many health problems and hospital visits. I started looking up different craft ideas to help me calm my mind, and after a few failed activities, I stumbled across mandala dot painting!

This is where it ALL took a turn! Learning to paint opened up an entirely new world for me. It not only relaxed me and forced me to focus on something else, but it gave me an opportunity to express myself and CREATE. Pretty soon I was trying to find different items to paint mandala art on including clothes, shoes, and canvases....but I kept coming back to the stones.

It's been a labor of love since then, with my desire being to share this love of creating by providing the best quality of stones to help you find your own passion! I've worked hard with different mixes and molds to ensure the quality of your items, and I LOVE hearing from people and seeing finished stones when buyers post after pics!

I had no idea what was getting ready to happen when I painted my first little rock I found in our landscape, but I want you to know from my experience that anything is possible! Even when things look, or just feel, really hard...as long as we keep putting one foot in front of the other, the doors stay open for miracles!

Thank you again for stopping by The Stellar Stop. I really appreciate your time and I hope you find the joy in your day today!

    I'm the sole operator of my shop right now, so I currently make the rocks, paint the rocks, photograph, market, and ship all of the items by myself... ...but providing great customer service is my favorite hat to wear! I sure appreciate you! 💛
