As crazy as social media can be, it can also be one of the most magical tools at our disposal.
Through the powers of social media, I have made new friendships, started relationships, and even discovered rad businesses that I otherwise might not have.
So today I want to talk to you about my latest and greatest social media find: Meg’s Modern Macrame.
I found Meg through Instagram, and you could literally feel her energy through her posts and messages.
As cliche as it sounds, I like to spend money with people that are just chasing their dreams and doing what feels good. And honestly, we became friends instantly. She is such a burst of fresh air.
Originally started as CuzMegsCreations, Megan Raleigh is a self-taught crafter who found a way to turn her passion into a business.
When asked how Meg’s Modern Macrame came to fruition, Raleigh says:
I’ve always been a crafty girl and started getting into painting in college. During the pandemic I started crafting some items for myself and my friends that were of practical use for essential oils. Everyone started wanting them and my business took off! I started as CuzMegsCreations but narrowed down my niche to macrame when I started learning and mastering the skill! I am completely self taught and have been running with it for 2 years now! Almost at 34k followers on Instagram and hoping to continue to grow everyday!Meg Raleigh, Meg’s Modern Macrame
If you are looking for a sign to chase your dreams – this is it. And if you’re just looking for something fun to get yourself, or for the friends in your life, try a handmade keychain or bookmark. Sure, you could go to a big box store and find something – but why not shop small, support a local crafter, and give a gift that’s actually unique?
And before I end this post, let me share some items I am loving from Meg’s shop.
Okay, I lied…before I go, how about an exclusive discount?!
