Y'all think I'm kidding! It wasn't so long ago when I literally had to ask someone that question. So here we are, writing our first BLOG! (Happy Dance). Our marketing company suggested we start these blogs, and to be honest I was a little hesitant at first. I've always been more of a private person and to me these blogs were a little unnerving. But the truth is, I love my customers, we love our fans. And as the founder/owner of Crescent Cotton, this journey has been one that has made me grow and learn in more ways than I could have ever imagined. So, they had me feeling a little convicted as to why I didn't share more of who we are with you guys!
The journey. A love for drawing, which led to an accidental side business, and now a brand that sells across the nation. Sometimes it still doesn't seem real honestly. With anything, you just live in the day-to-day duties of life and work and you forget how far you've come I suppose. I've always been grateful, first with God who blessed me with a talent that turned into a career I love, and second, for my customers! I have such a deep appreciation for those who support me in this journey, it makes my heart so thankful.
With that being said, Easter is around the corner and our new Tis' So Sweet design couldn't be more appropriate! This watermelon color shirt is a comfort color shirt, (translated to mean SUPER SOFT and SUPER COMFY). I mean you really have to feel this shirt to believe how soft it is! They run "slightly" on the bigger size, and they are 100% cotton, but pre-shrunk!
When I came up with the title of this design, I was going through a rough patch. You know, one of those times where you know the world won't end, but you're scared to death of bad news. I mean, why do we worry so much?! I thought I worried before I became a parent.....WRONG. There is no worry like "Mama Worry," whew! Make you crazy. My sweet husband is MUCH more of the steady soul, who helps calm my fears. These are the times where we just push through, and pray through. I literally would find myself walking around the house singing, "Tis' So Sweet"....you know the rest!
So, when I got out of that valley (which looking back was probably more like a pothole), I was inspired to create a design titled, "Tis So Sweet." So I contacted my SUPER talented friend Jeanne and pitched her with the concept. I told her what I had in mind and she drew the super cool outline of the cross. We took it from there and couldn't be happier with how it turned out! So this Easter, as we shop for those baskets, goodies and dresses, may we all remember and reflect on the true reason we celebrate. "Tis' So Sweet..."
Thanks for reading my first BLOG guys! I survived! Much love!
