For the entire month of February, I will be participating in NaBloPoMo – National Blog Posting Month – where I write a post a day.
So, I forgot my post yesterday. Oops. I guess that just happens every now and then. So today’s post involves the number 300. Let’s get started with story time 🙂
After I got married, I think I still had the residual high from all the DIY items I created. And it seemed like a lot of women I met through theknot.com chat room had the same energy flowing through their veins. Many of us started our own businesses. Well, let me back up. First they were more like hobbies, then as time passed, experience grew, and at some point hobbies tipped towards small businesses – with one common denominator – Weddings. A few became photographers, some wedding planners, and then there was my passion – Cake Toppers. For a bit I did it on the side, through Etsy, but eventually I made a change, registered the business name, bought the domain, and got to work on logistics.
Bling Diva Designs is something I love to do. I love creating something for brides & grooms to have on their wedding day, but also to have as a keepsake. Some of my brides have turned them into Christmas ornaments for their tree, used them for anniversaries, or have them framed at home on their mantle. I can’t express how much it means to have them appreciate it as much as I do. I never want to be a corporate type business, with little personal interaction. I love emailing with brides after they get it, and stalk their photographer’s blog to find photos of their big day. Sure, I look out for that cake photo, but I truly love getting a glimpse into the style of the bride & groom.
So back to the 300. Today I hit 300 “likes” on facebook. I remember when there was just 1 – me. Then grew to my family & friends, then to brides I had, networked wedding professionals, and now just folks that find my site either online or know someone with a Bling Diva cake topper. I can’t wait till that number gets larger and larger. It makes me giddy! If you want to be a fan, click here, and you’ll see my page.
