After years of freelancing from home while taking care of my younger boy, this September he'll be entering school full time and leaving me with a bit of time on my hands. What I should do with this time became increasingly clear to me over the past several months...
As a mom of two growing boys, I know there's so little time for wishing and waiting, and I felt I should start the business I'd always thought about. Also, opening up an online shop is an ideal way for me to further contribute to my family both financially and creatively. It illustrates to my boys what I've always believed (but lacked the courage to do) - and that is to have faith in yourself and pursue the thing that stirs within you, the thing you feel compelled to do. That persuaded me to create this blog in the first place… but now it's time to take the next step and to keep growing, learning and sharing with you.
At the moment, The French Kiosk sells my photographs from France and favorite florals, as well as other lovely French inspired finds, like vintage French books and postcards. It's a work in progress as I continue to add inventory and create handmade pieces to add to the mix.
It would be my great pleasure to have you stop by. And to celebrate the shop's grand opening, you get a special coupon only made for readers and followers: 50% off your order to use anytime this month using code: "LMVBLOG50." I hope you enjoy The French Kiosk. I'd love to get your comments & suggestions!
