A Christmas Elf
Welcome to Gingerbread Couture! My name is Taylor and I'm the Christmas elf behind the holiday magic.
Once upon a time in 2013, I made and sold inspired bows, ears and pocket t-shirts. It was such a creative outlet for me and filled my life with joy. At the time, I was a full time student with two other part time jobs and I didn't have the dedicated time needed to run a small business.
When the pandemic hit in March of 2020, I found myself with a LOT of extra time on my hands. I was meant to have a big Christmas Wedding in December and I thought it would be the perfect time to get stuff done. I began searching for personalized gifts and products for my wedding and discovered that Christmas themed wedding items were actually hard to find. So, I started making them for myself. Making these crafts for myself reminded me how much I love making items for other people. And Gingerbread Couture was born!
With the pandemic, my shop became heavily focused on masks. But honestly, if we are gonna have to wear masks, they might as well have some christmas spirit?! Sewing again snowballed into scrunchies, headbands and ears and here we are!
You are probably wondering, why Gingerbread Couture? Well, I am completely obsessed with Gingerbread Cookies and my last name is actually Couture! (Yeah, we had to cancel our big wedding but I still got married anyway. And I was fortunate to get a GOOD last name out of it.)
