“Perfect equals Procrastination”. This quote hit me right between the eyes this past week as I closed out 2016 and headed into 2017.
I have wanted to do a series to give our Little Bird fans and followers greater insight into the everyday business of building this Little Bird Vintage Designs venture of mine all while raising 5 fledglings throughout these past 10 years! It just seemed like I could never quite coordinate my make-up, hair, attire, time without distraction, thoughts and so on…
And so, without further adieu, I present to you my imperfect take on a vlog that, if you can get past wardrobe, will hopefully provide you with a deeper connection into this venture and your connection to it.
Ten years ago, I began this dream with one trademarked animal. It has now grown into five inspired trademarked animals and four product lines, which each have a Give associated with them, all produced right here in South Texas.
My mission to spread warmth, love, and happiness throughout the world, one Little Bird at a time, was inspired by my personal motherhood story. I wanted to share the same warmth, love and security to children in need throughout my community and world that I am able to provide daily to my own children. I decided to do so through a for-profit give model in order to show my children through example how one person, one family, one business can make a positive impact in the world while also making a living.
Little Bird currently partners with The Children’s Shelter of San Antonio to donate blankets to children in need. We hope to eventually give to children’s shelters nationwide in order to donate blankets within each community they are sold to benefit children in need across America.
For all apparel and accessory lines we carry, a percentage of proceeds are donated to local food banks through the Feeding America program to provide meals to children in need throughout the nation. At Little Bird Vintage Designs, we call this our Buy Love, Give Love Branch!
