My name is Sirpa. Naturally it's good to describe what I am like, and to get started I'll tell You, that I'm not more kind-hearted, empathic, kind, creative, handy, inventive, knowing or smarter than You are. I do many things first the wrong way and only then the right way, if I happen to remember how it shouldn't be done. There is a lot of people that I admire, from my close ones to Mother Teresa. I also admire people who speak clearly and smoothly and who look relaxed even if they have a suit on. I myself go speechless and there is only letter 'd' coming from my mouth when I'm in a suit. I think it tells pretty well what I'm like.
I have worked several years with cellular addition of plants. I studied to be a textile artesan, and then returned to my pleasant working community. In my free time I printed fabrics and dreamed of my own company. Some people spend couple of years dreaming, I managed to spend easily a whole decade. The final push to enterpreneurship then came with a harsh way.
The passing of close people in a short period of time made me stop. The fragility of life is always surprising, and I thought: "why am I wasting my time in dreaming? Why don't I do, what I want to? I only have this day, the decisions must be done today, as there is no knowlegde of the future". I also suddenly received a call in which I was asked why wouldn't I become an enterpreneur. They also offered me help getting started. I promised to think about it. Things were started to click wonderfully into place and here I am now. A completely ordinary person. I can't name anything I am very gifted in, I'm just impossibly enthusiastic about textile printing.
And I couldn't do this alone, but I have some strange way managed to surround me with awesome and helpful people. Helping hands are near, no need for me to ask. It's wonderful and I'm grateful for all of you, from the youngest to the oldest!
