Has this year been rough or what?! We don't know about you, but we have to say that crafting, color and creativity have really been a life line for us over the last six months. (Along with being hermits a bit - not going to lie!) When the world gets heavy, it's important to make tangible connections to life, love and hope. One of the most valuable aspects of the work we do here at Created by Elsie B is the opportunity to build community, and we just wouldn't be half what we are without all of you. Today we're thrilled to showcase the lovely and talented Casey Hudson. She's a regular contributor to our Facebook group, lighting up the world with her friendly face and stunning work. She makes the world a better place, and we're so glad to share in that just a little bit.
It's no secret that we love our customers! It really brings us a lot of joy and fulfillment to see our fibers going into the wild and being used, loved and coming to new life with your creativity. We are crazy excited today to give you inside look into our Created by Elsie B community and learn more about one of our much-loved customers, Kathleen McConnell, shown here exploring a stunning park in Maine last September. Kathleen has been an active participant in our Elsie B Facebook group for some time, and she is so encouraging, wise and creative! We have thoroughly enjoyed learning more about Kathleen's spinning journey, and we hope you find it as inspiring and interesting as we have.
Welcome to the very first Created by Elsie B customer spotlight! Today we are thrilled to be featuring Carole Bournias, a long-time member and contributor to the Elsie B community. She regularly shares her spins and participates in challenges and SALs in our Facebook group. We feel like our entire community benefits from her cheerfulness and wisdom, and we hope you enjoy getting to know Carole as much as we have!
There are many advantages to operating a small business, but one of our favorite things here at Created by Elsie B is the fact that we get to make personal connections with our customers on a daily basis. Producing our fibers is really a one-woman show, with a very small supporting cast that holds a few specific balls in the air behind the scenes. Because of this, you are all not just our customers but people that we consider friends. You get to see a bit of the personal side of the business through our Facebook group and by following us on Instagram. (Use #elsiebeconfessions to find behind-the-scenes vignettes about what makes LeAndra tick!) Still, our customers keep us going, so we are thrilled to announce that one of the recurring features on the Created by Elsie B blog will be a customer spotlight where we get to take the focus off the business and product side of things to spend a little one-on-one time with a favorite customer - you!
