MarchMeetTheMaker – Hands – The Real MVP of a Handmade Business

If you had told me a year ago that I would be designing and creating my own line of vibrant journals, tumblers and gift sets, or assembling a 100 pack set of vibrant superhero themed gifts for a 10yr old party, I would have laughed in your face. But yet, here I am, and thats what I am doing. 

One of the greatest joys of having a creative small business is that my hands quite literally touch almost every aspect of the process. At OhSoColorful Co. majority of items you see are individually crafted by yours truly. No giant manufacturing plants here – just me. This is NOT Amazon and there is no manufacturing plant.

From measuring and cutting paper, to trimming and weeding vinyl, to pressing and taping tumblers, and stamping packaging tissue – my hands are constantly at work. My hands are the main characters in this story.

It reminds me of my late mom, who was an incredibly talented self-taught seamstress. She used to pray daily, “May the Lord bless the work of my hands.” Now as I build my own handmade brand, I’ve adopted that same prayer. With each item I craft, I hope her spirit shines through in the little imperfect details that only human hands can create.

So while OhSoColorful Co. pieces may start digitally, they’re infused with a huge dose of human energy, creativity and love every step of the way.
