Happy July!

Inspiration is everywhere. Creative and life changing experiences, places, people, things and such are beckoning us daily in our lives to DO and BE better human beings. Won’t you agree? I know this is sometimes hard to believe in the face of life’s most challenging experiences. I can definitely relate but let us not deny inspiration even when we don’t feel like it.

My nephew took this candid blurry shot of me last weekend….it’s giving me life! πŸ™‚

I continue to be grateful for those individuals that come into my life weekly. Unknown to them at times are great sources of inspiration for my creative outlet and life.

Inspiration can be found in the strangest places and in the not so strange places. Inspiration can also be timely, won’t you agree. How many success stories have you read of individuals going from 0 to something or just being saved by a crazy idea in time to take them to the next level? There are many….I love those stories.

This was a few years ago on a girls trip. A memorable trip and experience! πŸ™‚

Recently I was inspired by a new customer and a conversation with a potential customer. The new customer was eager to purchase a piece and shared how immediately they connected to the piece and had to have it. The potential customer was looking for something special that I didn’t have but I was willing to get behind their vision and explored how we can make it possible. The timing wasn’t right so we agreed on a possible future collaboration. At the end of both conversations I had a spring in my step even though both were successful in different ways. One resulted in an immediate sale and the other, a possibility for future collaboration.

These three beauties rocking three pieces from my Amshina Custom Clothing business!

I am reminded that in putting my best foot forward every time that there can be something to reap. What do I mean by reap? Sowing seeds of good customer service should not be optional when you only anticipate a final sale. Every entrepreneur should know this. At the beginning of my entrepreneurial journey it was hard to spend hours putting together a plan for a piece and creating estimates and quotes for sales that fell through ( I still do πŸ™‚ ). It took many no’s and a few yes’s to caution me not to be discouraged in these moments. Instead, I started looking for inspiration and ideas for products as well as how I can serve my clientele better in these conversations and inquiries. I am still pruning the tree of entrepreneurial excellence but with intention and purpose now.

Just me..thinking out loud! πŸ™‚Β 

It’s also a beautiful reminder that inspiration can be found anywhere and in the strangest of places.

Let me put that inspiration into plans and get creative now shall we! πŸ™‚

What’s the most strangest place, thing or experience that’s ever inspired you to date? Do Share.

Stay tuned! The creative chronicles continue! πŸ™‚

God Bless!

Anywho, I just wanted to stop by to share with my Toronto followers that this upcoming weekend I will be in The MRKT. This is basically a vending opportunity where you can come out and shop summer treats from Amshinaapparel! I have some goodies in store for you.

Monday flow:Staying focus!

Happy Monday, 

Happy  New year!

Back to blogging! It’s been a great few weeks of being recharged and inspired. I finished 2016 strong and wanted to ensure I started the year off right by taking some time to reflect and be inspired from the inside. I am excited for the good things that will happen this year in my sewing and business! I can feel it!  

Started off my first week back on social media sharing about the four words my brand represents. Giving focus to the vision and working towards that! Check out on Instagram. http://www.instagram.com/amshina

Wishing you an awesome week ahead! Stay tune. The sewing chronicles continue…..just keep sewing, just keep sewing, what do I do I sew sew sewwwwwwww!
