How we came up with our name; MAE Inspirations
For weeks my husband and I brainstormed names. Many I liked, many (MANY) I did not like. I wanted a name to love, I wanted a name that would remind me why I am here. We just could not find a name that suited those needs.
Then one day, scribbling in one of my many notepads, as I often do. I seen a few different things regarding incorporating my children's names, however having 3 children the name would be incredibly to long. I also noticed that many times over I had used the word "inspirations" in my brainstorming process.
This is when I had another of my "light bulb" moments. I knew right then and there, it was because of my children that I am here. They are my inspirations. They encourage me everyday. They inspire me everyday with many of the pieces I make. They even help me pick out many new items, and they love helping sort new orders.
So I started playing around with their initials, Ember, Aiden and Madelyn. MAE, like "May" immediately I fell in love with. May also happens to be mine and my sister, who passed many years ago, birth month. So it has many special meanings to me. It was something I loved. So you see, its not just a "business name" to me, at least. Its a reminder to be the best that I can be every day, and why I want to be the best. I want to show my children every day that hard work will make your dreams come true. I want to encourage my children to follow their dreams, no matter what they are.
