I am not only a sucker for a great blog, I love a good “back story” too.
That’s why this week’s Saturday ShoutOut is kind of poignant. This week’s featured blog “Pink Slip Inspiration,” was, in fact, inspired by a young teacher’s creative journey out of a tough situation. The school system where Jillian worked had budget problems-not an unusual story-so instead of wallowing, she used her downtime to make homemade gifts and started pinning on Pinterest. Eventually, she decided to begin listing her items for sale on Craigslist, then eventually on Etsy.
Great news for Jillian, she found another teaching job, and is combining her passion for teaching with her creative spirit and drive. Her story is an inspiration, and her products are sweet and distinctive. Read, shop and enjoy!
