Before I created designs by db ~ Diana’s Design & Decor, I was just working a normal 9-5 job.
In 2013, I developed a disabling neurological condition which forced me to quit work and mostly confines me to bed. I spent almost two years in bed falling into a deep depression.
I started watching YouTube and Facebook videos and came across some wreath makers. I wanted to try my hand at it. Something to take my mind off my difficulties. And then I decided to expand upon that.
I quickly realized I wanted to not just make wreaths but set out to create the most authentic, unique wreaths for the most discriminant customers. This no longer was going to be a hobby, this was going to be an actual business so I could supplement our income.
It turns out, the road was more difficult than I imagined.
I feared no one would like my products, I feared my customers wouldn’t come. It wasn’t just a matter of making wreaths, it was running a business. I had worked in management for years but I didn’t know anything about running a business and all the additional work that would entail.
I joined groups and took classes and found a fantastic coach. Before I knew it, I was making wreaths and getting outstanding reviews. Now making wreaths is not just my therapy, it has become my passion.
I enjoy all kinds of wreath forms, with my very eclectic taste, customization has become my specialty. My love of antiques and rustic décor has me working on primitive, and Farmhouse style the most but with Deco Mesh you can really go outside the box and the sky is the limit.
Through it all…
I opened a Facebook business page, opened an Etsy shop and am about to launch my own website. The response has been pure love from everyone who sees my products. My business has literally become a lifeline to me.
