Small towns and small businesses have been at the center of my soul for as long as I can remember. Having lived in almost every corner of the state of Wyoming and many places in between, I've had the pleasure of meeting some very strong minded and big hearted entrepreneurs and business warriors. It's these people and the landscape of these towns that has inspired me to take an entrepreneurial path.
At the age of 5, I made my first batch of "mud pies" (literally, mud pies) and would bake them on the sidewalk outside the farmhouse we lived in and sell them to my family. By 8, I began making handmade jewelry, loading my inventory into my backpack, and selling what I had to my elementary school classmates. I've watched my parents successfully start a variety of businesses, and I've always been drawn to the lifestyle of creating things and selling them. Creativity has always been on my side- and the economic part of it is instinctual.
Fast forward 20-some years and 20-some "big ideas" later, and I've landed on what I truly believe is my greatest start-up yet. Introducting....Wyld 'n Pretty. The whole idea of this brand is to show people what an unbridled spirit and big voice can accomplish. I want to show people how to be bold and confident, while always being kind and understanding. I believe in saying what's on your mind and standing up for yourself, and barreling through life with tenacity and grit- and doing it all with a smile on your face and an outreached hand to the hearts and souls who want to join you.
This brand is SO much more than a graphic on a t-shirt or some paint slapped on a canvas. It's an expression of a story, that has many, many chapters- a story that will unfold over years and years of time. I want people to feel something when they wear my brand or hang my art in their home. I want them to know that they've invested their dollars into a wholesome, genuine, one-of-a-kind brand- where every piece is created with purpose.
I'm incredibly excited to see Wyld 'n Pretty grow and change. And I'm so, SO thankful to anyone who supports my small business and my big ideas. Your support is turning my dreams into a tangible living, and I am so grateful for you.
Thank you and welcome to the Wyld 'n Pretty side.
