Before this piece was unveiled… I promised myself I wouldn’t cry but I think I did a little lol this was the unveiling of the 1mt x 1mt taonga at the Franklin Family Support Services yesterday that we had created.
Matariki is a time of reflection and as I sat there staring at the cover… Aramoana Gifts, Lemuelu Designs, Awatea Design are here because I am grateful to my whānau, for the gifts and talents of others, because of the experiences and because in 2018, Alfred Aramoana gifted me not only “Awatea” and whānau, but also his name & .
They are the “why” - why are we in business?
To showcase my mums amazing creative talents
To be a part of people’s stories and legacies, which is an honour
To enable the whānau to be part of something that fulfils and supports whānau
To give back to the community, where we can and as often as we are able
To help support other businesses/pākihi
It’s not always an easy road that I chose and many days it’s been a complete struggle, but it’s always been the best choice. I can honestly say that I love what I do.
If you asked me how business is going?
Thank you to everyone for your support and guidance❤️🔥
