I was inspired to launch December Creative because…

I value handmade, quality products that add beauty to people’s lives. Having a business allows me to dream those products up on my own terms, with creative freedom and ownership of my time.

Our mission is…

To craft artful, feminine fragrance that adds beauty to the everyday and encourages slow, thoughtful living.

What I did prior to starting my business…

Starting a business was my goal straight out of college. I did freelance graphic design and worked part-time jobs to save money to start the business, then I jumped right in!

Ways that I stay creative…

I stay creative by maintaining an inspiring workplace. My studio is in my home and I designed it to be bright and clean with a lot of greenery, which keeps my head in the right place. A change of scenery, even something as simple as a coffee run, will get me out of a creative slump.

What being a woman entrepreneur means to me…

The opportunity to use my talents in a way that is empowering and fulfilling, while also inspiring others and contributing to my family.

My best advice for aspiring entrepreneurs…

Remember that every successful entrepreneur started with just an idea. Those that “make it” are the entrepreneurs that learned from failures, never gave up and never took no for an answer. Set small goals and allow yourself to celebrate when you reach them.

I #EmbraceAmbition by…

Never letting fear dictate my decisions and always celebrating even the smallest victories.
