Our group info: “Makers is a group of creatives who are wives, moms, and more importantly women after God’s heart. We all have different titles and wear many hats but one thing we all have in common is that we are business women. Makers is based on Exodus 35 in the Bible. We are a Christian community of creative entrepreneurs – more specifically photographers, builders, bakers, cafe owners/cooks, bloggers, shop owners, calligraphers, and graphic designers – driven to establish a place for women who have creative gifts and want to use them to honor God, build relationships, and serve a purpose in our town. Our desire for this group is to have an outlet for women to gather in fellowship together, encourage and cheer one another on, and develop real relationships with like-minded creative entrepreneurs. We want it to be a safe place to share, a place of inspiration, support, and growth not only in our businesses but in our relationships with the Lord, our families, and friends.”It’s been on my heart as well to have something like that a little closer to home. I will still be going to my Pursuit meetings but I’m excited to be able to do life and business, collab, and more with these girls in our town.
Last night we had our first gathering and Chelsea was our amazing host. We had apple cider, appetizers, a fun floral arranging class and dinner outside under string lights and candlelight. SO much fun and a much needed night. The entire evening was perfect. This apple cider was SO good and such a nice touch. I hope to make some for our Supper Club next month. We all had different containers and flowers. It was fun to see what we all came up with and how different our tastes are. All of the arrangements were beautiful! Chelsea had a good friend cater our gathering and it was SO good! Salad, asparagus, chicken, sweet potatoes, rolls and cheesecake in a mason jar for desert.My arrangement looks so good in my house and this has inspired me to put more fresh florals in my home more often.
The night was like sweet therapy for all of us. I am so excited for next month’s gathering. Friends-giving! And I am hosting, which makes me really nervous but my creative party brain is already in planning mode. I am so excited and blessed to have this group and an outlet to share our faith based business triumps and struggles, family life, and more with.
