Entrepreneur Highlight: Turning Your Creative Passion into a One-of-a-Kind Brand

Entrepreneur Highlight: Turning Your Creative Passion into a One-of-a-Kind Brand

I first discovered Kimberly and her artwork on Instagram several years ago. Her unique illustration style and cheery thoughtfulness stood out to me, and I was eager to follow along with her journey.

One of her posts in particular caught my eye. It featured a polaroid of a mailbox and asked, “what is your favorite thing to send through the post?” I’ve always loved paper and letters, so I left a comment. Kimberly responded but also replied with a question, which sparked a conversation and quickly led to a friendship.

When I had the idea to start a weekly series highlighting other creative entrepreneurs, Kimberly instantly came to mind.

Sprinkled with lovely photos of her work, this post includes so many wonderful insights and tips to glean about small business ownership.

Kimberly has recently taken her brand Lacelit full-time, and I am so very excited to have her join me on the blog today to share her story!

But you may want to grab a comforting cup of coffee or tea because Kimberly has an enchanting way with words, so this feature is a certain treat to cozy-up with and read.
