Hi Melissa! Can you tell us a little more about yourself and your shop Mold Me, Shape Me?
My husband (Kipp) is a pastor of a local church, our daughter (Elizabeth) is 15 years old. I home school Elizabeth here on our 75 acre farm in the mountains of North Carolina. Elizabeth and I are very active riding our horses. This past year Elizabeth won The Craig Cameron Extreme Cowboy Race World Championship in Guthrie Oklahoma. She won the adult division not the youth, it was amazing watching this girl not only win against these Cowboys once but three days in a row to win the World Title. I have always been proud of my daughter, but this is a once in a life time event.
I am very active with the teens in our church, anything we can do for the next generation is what it is all about."
You are obviously such a creative individual! What continues to inspire you to create such darling pieces?
"For the most part I don’t have any problem thinking of things to sculpt. All you have to do is look around there is plenty of inspiration in God’s creation."
Yes! If you keep an open eye there is so much inspiration to behold! Have there been obstacles in venturing off to create Mold Me, Shape Me?
"The biggest obstacle I face is not having enough time to work. Then there is the writing, I have such a hard time writing about myself or my business. Just does not seem right to brag on yourself."
I am the same way, but you have too as a blogger! How are you overcoming this?
"I stay up a night to work after my daughter’s school day is done. My house does not get cleaned like it should. I am very focused when working and would let the walls fall down around me to finish a project. I will never over come my fear of writing, I just have to do it."
Again, I can so relate! So I am more than curious what your advice would be?
"Don’t let it get you down when times are hard, just keep looking for a solution. Some of my best ideas have been during the hard times."
So very true! Thank you so much Melissa for sharing your inspiring story with us and leaving us with such a sweet giveaway!
