Our next maker specialises in pick ‘n’ mix mini toiletry gift sets. As pleasant as the suggestion, these are not edible!
Hello! Who is the lady behind For Your Glory Gifts?
Hi. My name is Kelly Kellz and I am the founder and creator of For Your Glory Gifts,
What inspired you to become a maker?
I have always had a creative flair and started making personalised gifts after organising my friends Bridal shower which included making gifts for the guests. Since then, I have incorporated other elements items adding greater variety.
What is it like to manage your own business, or like many, juggle multiple jobs?
It can be challenging, but I am an entrepreneur at heart and always dreamed of having my own business so this is just the beginning. I really enjoy marketing, networking and being creative so that side of it I don’t consider ‘work’ because I enjoy it too much!
Can you tell us what is it like juggling your passion whilst holding down a day job?
It can be a little distracting as I would love to do this full time, however I motivate myself with my day job by using my hard earned money to continue investing in new ideas, new ways of adding to the gifts an taking that risk that it might or might not sell. I like to have options myself to keep the creating interesting for me also, so I hope that also keeps my customers interested too to see what’s next.
Can you impart a quote or words of wisdom to inspire?
I am a big believer in the power of our thoughts and words, so everything I do is done with a positive thought, outcome or word connected. I have to say it works and would encourage others to do the same!
Thank you very much, Kelly.
