Last week a colleague of hubs’ emailed me knowing I love pretty things. What I discovered was the pretty things he was talking about also had a beautiful story of strength and courage wrapped around them.
Knitting wasn’t just about the scarf for Holly; it was her outlet. Lost in an emotional and verbally abusive marriage, she credits knitting to saving her. The click of her needles and weaving of yarn allowed her to de-stress and think clearly.
A year ago Holly found the strength and courage to leave the tumultuous relationship behind. Since then she hasn’t looked back. She has cleansed her body, mind and soul and rediscovered her passion for pretty things.
With the encouragement and support of her family and friends, Wrapped in Inspiration was born. She has taken the traditional infinity scarf and turned it into a fashion piece. These trendy accessories are the easiest way to dress up an outfit and a staple for every woman’s closest.
What’s even more moving about Holly’s journey is Wrapped in Inspiration isn’t just a business; it’s her way of giving back. A portion of the proceeds from her sales will go to domestic violence charities. Not all women have the strength and courage to leave their abusive relationships like Holly did. She wants to ensure that all women have a place to turn and make a difference in their lives.
Sometimes we all need to be wrapped in a little inspiration.
You can find Wrapped in Inspiration on the web, Twitter, Facebook and Etsy. Best part? The store is open 24 hours a day and you can shop from the comfort of your own home. I’ve already bought a few for myself and gave my mom one for her forever 29th birthday.
Disclosure: I was not compensated in any way for this post. I believe in supporting local, especially when there is such beauty in a product and person.1
