We had the good fortune of connecting with Patsy Farris and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Patsy, every day, we about how much execution matters, but we think ideas matter as well. How did you come up with the idea for your business?
Contrary with the idea for me actually starting my Business was on a I’m Unique Individual…and it started with a Bling Hairstick!😉

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I actually started my Business of being a Custom Bling Designer with a Pair of Hairsticks that I Blinged Out and folks would ask where did I purchase them from…of course my answer was I Bling them. I would sale my Hairsticks out my Hair, until I said….ummmmmm this is something that the Women like that wear Braids & Locs.

My Crochet started with my Aunt Audrey may she RIP……that was her motive from me not hanging out and being the Tomboy/Girl that I was. I seen a Beautiful Baby Blanket that she was making and it was History after that!

The items that I make are so Unique, different and Custom.

It hasn’t been easy, but anything that you want dosen’t come on a platter for you….I work long hours, and I Love what I do….and that’s the key to (Love what you do)

What I’ve learned along the way is that you can’t please everybody..(only God🙌🏽).so it’s a work together at all times with your Customers, because they keep your Business Open.

I give God all the Glory. What I want the World to know is that I take nothing for Granted. I acknowledge that my Talent/Gift is in my Hands and everything that I touch is APieceOfWonderful from touching Swarovski Crystals💎 to Yarn🧶and I stand by my Brand.

And what you thought that you have planned for your Life, God has Better, Better, Better for You!

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
We would go to Eddie V’s, in El Segundo on a Monday night have some good Seafood, catch up and have a fun Evening. Tuesday we would visit the Regency West for Taco Tuesday & some good food and music. Wednesday we would do some shopping go to the Outlets have some lunch. Thursday we would visit some old friends and catch up. Friday night we would go see who’s at the Comedy Store if their open, if not go check out a Good movie. Saturday it’s shopping, and Pamper Day. Sunday would be giving God the Glory and I would have friends & Family over for Dinner. The Menu…Turkey Wings, Greens Yams, Mac N Cheese & Cornbread. My best friend would be wore out & gained 15-20pds while here with me!😉

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Absolutely, that would be my Mom(Gigi) & my Aunt.(Audrey) and my Aunt(Gerrie) who I definitely stand on their shoulders for the Individual, the Creator and Unique Woman that I am today.
