Facebook did it again! Because of a great networking group I’m in, I met Patricia from Circle of Love Wreaths and Crafts. She has created some really lovely gift certificates for me to use for online events and I think everyone should know about this awesome shop and the crafty girl who runs it!
GeminiRed Creations: When did you start your business?
Patricia: June 16, 2011
GeminiRed Creations: Why did your start your business?
Patricia: I LOVE crafting and creating things. It all started with when my friend had showed me a rag wreath she made, she gave me the link to “how to make a rag wreath” .. My husband is in the Coast Guard so my very first wreath was a Coast Guard wreath. Then I started making wreaths for my friends babies, then once I started getting requests, I started my Facebook page… Now I make custom team and military rag wreaths, custom glass etching, jewelry stamping, distressed frames & est. signs, hand painted canvas’, hand painted mugs & coasters… the list goes on and on! If you see something you want, just ask!
GeminiRed Creations: What inspires you?
Patricia: Mostly Pinterest!! I have a lot of friends that find something they like, text me and say “Can you make this for me?!” I usually say YES! 🙂
GeminiRed Creations: Does a special memory come to mind when you work with a certain item, color, print?
Patricia: Military uniforms have such a special place in my heart. My husband is in the Coast Guard and I know how hard it is being a stay at home mom and a military wife. I know how hard deployments are, even if it’s only for a couple of days.
GeminiRed Creations: Are other people in your family artistic, crafty, etc?
Patricia: My nephew is INCREDIBLY talented. He lays tile professionally and his work is so beautiful! He also makes adirondack chairs out of snow skiis!! They are really neat looking!
GeminiRed Creations: Does anyone else in your family own a business? Or any family work with you?
Patricia: I’m the only one! 🙂 My husband helps me sometimes!
GeminiRed Creations: Do you have a motto or favorite quote?
Patricia: My favorite quote is: For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone. ~Audrey Hepburn
GeminiRed Creations: What is your business mission statement or tagline?
Patricia: Personalizing the world one craft at a time!!
GeminiRed Creations: If you wake up in the morning and don’t want to work on something you know you need to finish – what makes you forge ahead?
Patricia: The instant gratification. I am always crafting. I don’t feel that my day is complete unless I make something or at least start on something!!
GeminiRed Creations: What has been your favorite project?
Patricia: Definitely my distressed frames. I LOVE them!! And they are such a hit!!
I think everyone should know that Patricia is a stay at home mom, a military wife, and a southern belle which means she loves to personalize everything! She’s passionate about creating things and coming up with new ideas! (If I ever make a trip to her area in FL, I’m stopping by and crashing her craft room to see what’s going on!)
