First off, I want to start by thanking everyone who’s taking the time to even click this link and read this post! It’s because of all of you that I had the courage to start this new journey!
For those that don’t know me, my name is Jayetta Donaldson. I have been a stay at home mom for almost 10 years now! I can tell you I have loved being able to be home with my kids, but as many stay at home moms might relate to, I began to lose myself in the focus on my family and role as a mother.
I’ve always loved creating things, so while home, I would make different items and take them to the local flea markets on the weekend to sell for extra money. I even had a facebook business page for awhile selling everything from hair clips to jewelry to clothing! As my children grew, the items would change. It was a hodge podge of all the random things I wanted for my kids but couldn’t afford to buy and the items would change monthly!
One day an opportunity came to my door to start a direct sales company which I became a part of for 4 years! I loved making new friendships and spending time on company retreats. It was allowing me to have some alone time to start finding myself again. But what I was finding was I was not enjoying the time I used to spend creating things in my craft room any more. I had stopped doing the things I loved most to make time to sell products someone else was designing and making and while I would do things here and there I was not being fulfilled. I wanted to be selling items that I had been a part of creating! I felt like I had more to offer and I no longer was having fun with my role in that company. They had no positions available for a role I would have preferred so I was encouraged by many of you to go back to my roots and start creating my own designs again. So the dream of Salvaged Chateau starting taking place.
As I’m getting the blog going, I am diligently working on items behind the scenes and I appreciate all of you being so patient and encouraging throughout this whole process… Some of the items I want to make require me buying some tools that will have to be purchased one at a time but I promise the wait till be worth it! This new journey will be exciting for me and a start to me being me again! In my next post you will learn more about what Salvaged Chateau will be offering so stay tuned for more info! Much Love xoxo
