Finally!! We're thrilled to shine the spotlight on our talented babe and dear friend @veronicarae , Creator of @thenormal.co , a clothing brand with her original art as the centerpiece.
.
"The Normal was built on authenticity and abstract aesthetics. We celebrate differences and advocate for the misunderstood. All original art work from Veronica Rae."
.
More from the Maker:
.
What inspires you as an artist?
Obscurity & risk inspires me as an artist because I feel as though I’m always visiting new realms of my mind. Creating art is the one thing I can control in a world full of unexpected variables.
.
What made you decide to take your art toward building a clothing brand?
.
I have personally never sought out fashion for myself, because a lot of trends never really spoke to me. I had a realization that I could create my own style for me and others like me.
.
What inspires your fashion?
.
I am inspired by urban street wear with simple accents mixed with a hint of femininity .
What are you goals for the rest of 2019? .
My goals are to stay consistent with my art & to collab with more local creatives for the sake of creating and community.
.
What would you say to anyone looking to take the next step to launching their own product/brand?
.
Face your fears of other’s opinions and just run with your ideas. Your originality & voice is heard by the right people when you stop focusing on the wrong ones. Unfortunately sometimes it’s the people closest to us that will have resistance in supporting our vision, but be mindful of that and keep working. There are strangers that are inspired by you and will not be afraid to tell you so. Trust your own intuition.
.
What inspired the name for your biz, The Normal?
.
I want the perspective of oddities and strange art/people to be The Normal!! Kind of a paradox eh??

We've been dying to get this one out! Last winter we had the pleasure of hosting Page Eleven Paper Goods at our Holiday #peoplepartycraftfair and just fell in love with the Creator and her product! "The Page Eleven brand is an idea formed to inspire people to keep moving towards their goals or aspirations." It's our pleasure to introduce to you, Elisha McGhee, the Visionary and driving force behind her business.

More from the Maker:
.
What brought you to the place where you decided to turn your planning strategies into an accessible product for others?
.
I remember once I got to college reading something that said, β€œif you don’t have time to do it right, then how will you have time to do it over?” and it was in that moment that I realized I wanted to actively focus on the life I knew I deserved. Others begin to notice, they would question me about my goals, my plans, how I was so organized and motivated to reach that next step. I begin helping others create their own planning styles and help develop their ambitions. I launched Page Eleven Paper Goods in Fall 2016 with that on my mind. I wanted to create products that lead people to push through their fears and knock down the limitations that they had built on themselves.
.
What was the most important thing you had to focus on to make this business a reality?
.
The one thing for me that truly made a difference in taking my business from a dream to reality, was the elimination of self doubt. I had plans for my business three years prior to actually starting it and honestly, there was not a real reason why I had not pursued it before. However, I doubted the ability I had to be ready or what most like to wait for.. β€œthat perfect time”. I look back now and realize how much time I wasted doubting, misjudging and distracting myself. Once I finally launched, I focused on uplifting myself, encouraging myself and realizing that this journey will have learning along the way so it’s best to just go along for the ride versus waiting for the next stop.
.
What truly motivates you in the morning?
.
β€œThe freedom to explore life authentically without limitations”..that’s the family mission statement in my home. It is truly what I strive towards each day and what motivates me to keep fighting even when the journeys may seem longer, harder or more convoluted then I’d like.
.
What's your most popular product?
.
Our β€œWake Up and Work” notepads are our most popular product. It is such a valuable tool to add to your morning routine in order to practice intention each day. People love that they can keep them on their desk to jot down task and to-dos throughout the day.
.
What's your personal favorite?
.
I think my personal favorite is our Hourly Planner. I love the detail and flow of this one. I am one of those people that thinks the day through each morning so this works well for me to try and balance or dedicate time to each task I want to complete by the end of the day.

Happy Mother's Day to all the mommas in the world! I'm pretty convinced this might just be the HARDEST job everrrrrr. Every stage of motherhood is filled with challenges that far outweigh what we ever thought we were capable of being. The selfless tiring love of a mother begins from the time her body becomes the sanctuary of life for another human being, and carries on long after they are grown. And for the mothers who have had to kiss their babies for the last time, or maybe never got to meet their little one, or are still fighting to hold on to hope, your love is fierce if not more so!! Some of the most valuable mothers in our world are the ones that mother the motherless and those in need of a caring heart, whether or not they ever had children of their own. Thank so much for your love in this world. And even though most of the time we feel weak and weary, or like we're always falling short of our dreams, or desires to be a good mom, wife, sister, person, friend, we are stronger than we'll ever know. To all the mommas laying it down, you are not alone. May you reap in love and confidence knowing you are the fiercest force of love that walks this planet earth even when you feel like you're barely hanging on by a thread! You got this, guurrrrrl. Hug a momma today and tell her you see her! Couldn't fit all the pics, but here's a few faces we admire in the Maker world (sooooo many others we wish we could tag). We see you! #happymothersday ❀❀❀

Can we say YESSSSS!!! We're back with our #meetthemakermondays, and are super stoke cause it's literally our fave!!! We're hopefull to keep it up, and hope you'll be inspired by their creations and good Maker advice for all you small business Creatives! With no further ado...
.
Meet Ashley Delose, Maker + Creator of Ashdel based in #austintx.
.
"Vintage and upcycled materials are at the heart of her design process and inspire limited edition collections. Her work is experimental yet grounded in traditional techniques including Japanese braiding, sewing, embroidery, and beading." >>> Everything we absolutely LOVE is right here!
.
From the Maker:
What do you love most about what you do?
.
I love tinkering and experimenting with tactile materials like fabrics, so for me design is play. I enjoy the thrill of the hunt when sourcing materials and rescuing fabrics to give them a new life. Designing within constraints helps me create better designs because it forces me into different directions I may not have otherwise explored and the end product is unique. So for me using existing materials and upcycling is a win-win.
.
Selling my work in person allows me to connect with people directly. It's satisfying to see someone discover a piece they love for themselves or for a loved one. In-person markets are great for testing ideas and a source of inspiration from shoppers and fellow artists.
.
What advice do you have for other aspiring Makers?
.
Persistence. Keep making! Don't be afraid to test an idea by putting it out there, even if it's not 100% 'ready.' It takes time to develop ideas and to find your own unique design style. Some days are duds or frustrating in terms of design but could be a stepping stone to a refined idea later on. When I'm stuck I clean up my works space, organize my supplies, or go for a walk. I keep unfinished ideas to revisit later because it helps on days when I’m feeling stuck or uninspired. Sometimes starting something and returning to it another day with a different perspective helps give me the confidence to finish an idea.

Toddlers, bedtime, business, topos...It went down with us and @forrestwoodwork taking real talk on the patio last night πŸ˜…, and we're hoping it's a time you'll enjoy too! We've launched a fun weekly segment called Topo Time with Me & the Hubs: Light hearted interview time talking family, busines, marriage, spirituality, and everything in between.
