Welcome to one of my favorite blog posts of the week — “I Think I Can Thursdays.” This series is about women supporting women and mothers supporting mothers. Each week I’m going to feature a different small shop and introduce you to the brilliant woman behind it and one of their fabulous products. These businesses are the product of hard work, long hours, and an unbelievable vision. So sit back, enjoy the read and at the end of the post there might be a savings code for you! (Okay, there definitely will be.)
“Hello! My name is Ana and I am the owner of Sparkling Lilac. I began creating high quality hair accessories for my daughter, Lilac, in 2012. The admiration Lilac received for her hair fashion trends inspired me to follow my dreams and Sparkling Lilac was born. My mission is to provide high quality accessories made of premium materials at an affordable price. My hope is to be able to start a sponsorship program for families going through adoption or fertility treatments. This is very dear to my heart as we struggled to conceive Lilac and have been battling with secondary infertility for years. After our first miscarriage when trying for baby #2, I listened to my heart and opened my Etsy shop. It has been an amazing experience and the support from our customers has been incredible. I love what I do and I’m so grateful for the love and support I receive. Each day, I feel closer to my goal of helping others with our sponsorship program and can see a bright future for our brand. “
Ana is an example of turning trials into triumph and I believe the impact her business will leave is only beginning. She was kind enough to send Berklee and I her Mommy & Me lace headbands from her collection. These headbands are gorgeous with such attention to detail. Berklee’s fit snug and is so light that she didn’t even notice she was wearing it. Ana takes great care of her customers and truly puts love into every piece.
See for yourself.
