From Laurel, With Joy
How did Laurel Denise begin? It's a story that I love to tell -- mostly because I just can't believe it (kind of like when my family and I survived a trip down the side of a Yosemite cliff when I was 13), but, cross my heart pinky promise, this is how it went down...
But, first: An introduction.
Hi, I'm Laurel. I started Laurel Denise in 2005 after I had a dream where I was creating jewelry with glass and my tiny handwriting. No, seriously, a dream. I was working for the government (because I lived in Northern Virginia at the time and that's just what you do there) and was pretty desperate for a creative outlet. God gave me a whisper of hope in my sleep and has continued to guide me along in this journey. And what a journey it's been!
