I am a mom to a 6 year old boy and a wife to a wonderful loving husband. I left my professional career in Human Resources when my son was born. Adore By Nat began when I started making handmade cards in 2004. It started as a way of supporting my cardmaking hobby.
My shop is my full-time job now. It has slowly evolved from just handmade cards to party decorations as well. I make favor tags, banners, cupcake toppers, door signs, napkin rings, teabag favors, invitations for any occasions such as wedding, baby shower, bridal shower, birthday etc.
The most challenging thing about having my own business is actually to tell myself to slow down and have a break. As a small business owner and artist, I wear many hats. Being my own boss, I have high expectations for myself. There are gazillions things I want to do and often times I feel that 24 hours a day is not enough. It is important to remind myself from time to time to seize the day.
My favorite thing to do is to travel. It is our dream to travel around the world. I love traveling more than shopping, lol.
I also an online business called Flirt and Flair Lingerie: http://flirtandflair.storenvy.com/
I personally hand-picked the products. If I don't believe in the products, I don't sell them. My collection is sweet, sassy, and chic.
I love what I do. I can't wait to get up in the morning and get back to work. I admit I can be a workaholic sometimes. Most of my orders are custom orders. I love the challenges that come with each project. I deliver what they have envisioned into something tangible. It truly makes my day when I receive sweet comments and/ or pictures of my work being displayed at their party. That what keeps me going.
I love custom orders! If you don't see it in my store, ask me please! I love challenges and I hate to say NO.
