I'm so thankful for the opportunity to "meet" all of you through Eleventh Avenue! I just adore reading the little notes you all leave on orders and seeing the positive feedback you email over when you receive your items! But, most of you know nothing about me, so here's how Beyond Rubies began. Shortly after having my 3rd child, I found myself looking for a creative outlet. I was looking for something to fill those few extra hours a day. I absolutely adored (& still do!!) being an at-home mom. I knew that no matter what I chose to do, I still wanted to be home with my babies. So, within a few weeks, Beyond Rubies was born! What started out as a hobby has grown to more than I could ever have imagined! God took my little dream, and turned it into something that has become such a blessing for my sweet family. Everyone always asks me where I came up with the name, Beyond Rubies. To be honest, branding and choosing a name was the most difficult part for me! :) But, after a few weeks of brainstorming, at a friends suggestion, I adapted Proverbs 3:15 - ..."she is more precious than rubies, nothing you desire can compare to her" to be my business name & motto. I wanted this business name to represent two things that are close to my heart -- God's Word and YOUR value. You are worth so much more than the world tells you, and hopefully I can spread that message through this little platform and through clothing you buy. So, when you're wearing your Beyond Rubies threads - please know that your value is, BEYOND RUBIES!
