If you've read the last few posts, you now know why we started and the meaning behind Six Notes. Those are the 2 main questions that we receive from you all. Below are other questions that we get asked:
How do you come up with the verses and designs?
Most of the verses are my personal favorites. Like 1 Corinthians 16: 13-14, Ephesians 3:18, Isaiah 55:9, Ephesians 4:23 and countless others. Some are from my morning reads or sermons I've listened to that all of a sudden sound great on a tee like Philippians 4:13 or Ephesians 3:20-21. Then there are a few friends have suggested, Psalm 46:10, Proverbs 31:25, and Psalm 100:5.
As for designs, we stick to scripture and keep it simple. We also love designing with a play on words. For example, our hats have the verse "His ways our higher than my ways, His THOUGHTS higher than MY THOUGHTS." Get it... hat, head, thoughts. Or our sunglasses. Fixing your eyes on Jesus. Eyes... sunglasses. Yes pun is totally intended.
Where are you located?
Minnesota! We sell mostly through our website and are in a few boutiques. For wholesale information, email email@example.com
How come no returns?
When starting Six Notes, we asked a few people who have been in the business for a while some of our biggest obstacles we would encounter. Returns and exchanges was always mentioned for the time and expense. I can handle the expense but time I cannot. Time is precious to us right now with a young family. So we try hard to note manufacturer product dimensions under each item listed. We also have a sizing page available.
When do you work?
This usually comes after they realize I stay home with our three kids. I try to work during nap time but now that my two older don't nap, it's a little trickier. It's not as fruitful as it used to be considering one of them comes into the office every 2 minutes either telling on the other or in need of a snack. Luckily, my content development is really just my morning devotion time. I share what I learned from that day! My orders are completed at night or with the kids.
Whenever I work I try and remember though that they are my first job.
Who's your Photographer?
I get this a lot as people LOVE our photos. With each line launch Sweet Sisters Photography captures that goodness. Then another friend will capture more of our devotional photos. I just know I'm super duper lucky to have great friends who willingly help out on this mission.
How do you find your models?
They are all my friends! Or friends of friends. That's what I love most about our photos. They are just real every day people.
What's your goal?
This usually is asked when they want to know where I want to take Six Notes. Like do I have a business plan? A five year plan? The answer... no and no. I think it drives some people crazy but I feel that when I start to make too many plans, I lose out on God's leading. I have ideas that I think would be cool but no plans or goals.
I've also never been one to set goals. If I want to do something, I just do it and see where I can take it. And right now with my life with three young kids, I just take what I can do when I can do it. What I think is more than awesome about Six Notes is that it's growing and impacting people and it's with very little of my effort. It makes me realize that when you follow God's leading, God will make it happen.
