The last blog post I wrote on February 11 was right after my mom passed away. Also. It was the day before I found out I had breast cancer. Who knew on that day my life would go into a complete tailspin? Since then so many things have happened. To me personally. To our world. To our country. To say life has given me lemons this year is a massive understatement. However? Oh, the lemonade I have had!

I have had to dig deep, very deep, just to get through each day. But I also have a business to run. A business that I love. That I truly cherish. Not because of the income, but because it’s my passion, and the people it has brought into my life…that would be you…mean the world to me. What this meant was doing some serious thinking about the future of Lisa Lehmann Designs. What is next? How do I best continue? What best supports my passion, what I love to create, and my time in the studio? And what supports my clients, my friends and gives them more. How can I best serve, birth new designs, and maintain a sustainable business without exhausting myself and bombarding my clients? How can I reward loyalty and follow my artistic vision?
My short term walking away from the studio in January to care for my mom turned into something I would rather not repeat. For a while, I thought I would lose my business. I thought maybe it’s just time to raise the white flag. Yet. You stood by me.
I have learned MANY lessons this season. One. Is loyalty. From people who are way more than customers to me. Two. Is being innovative when I wasn’t sure I had it in me. And three. The art of asking for help and receiving it. I literally could not do things on my own.
