Hey new friends!! Let me introduce myself! I’m first a child of God. I give him all the glory for blessing me and gifting me. I’ve been married for over twenty three years to my best friend who supports me from behind the scenes. I am a mom of a pretty cool young man who is currently a sophomore in college. I love being a “college mom”! I’m also a dog mom to my giant schnauzer, Benson. You will see him a lot in my posts on social media. He's a big fella so it's hard to hide him. I’m a sister to a fun and crazy woman who you may meet from time to time when we have projects together. I will share some fun times with her on the blog and on my social media pages.
I recently closed the door to a twenty five year career of corporate finance. I've worked in a finance/banking/mortgage world since I was nineteen years old. In October of 2022 I made the decision to take a leap of faith and pursue my dream of owning and operating a small business. I am learning new things daily, good and bad, but I determined to not give up. I have so many plans for Embellish. I have recently expanded and created my own line of home decor called "Brandi Alexander HOME". I hope to someday have a brick and mortar with a curated and collected feeling that becomes a destination location where I can share all of my creative gifts with others. I look to scale my online presence in the home decor and gift market in the near future. I am excited about the future for Embellish and my HOME decor line of products.
My creative genes go deep. I inherited a strong entrepreneurial spirit from my parents. I am 100% a daddy's girl, the daughter of an Air Force Veteran and retired postmaster. My dad was also an entrepreneur and small Kentucky tobacco farmer. My mother passed away from a brain illness in 2006. She was an interior designer and really a “jack of all trades”. I like to say I am a "designers daughter". She continues to inspire me and although she has passed, I talk about her influence a lot. Maybe someday I will write a book about all of that!
I created this site for busy women like myself that love pretty things and need a nice gift to give from time to time. I also wanted to share with you my tips and tricks that I use around my home when decorating. Oh and just a little PSA.... Christmas is my JAM! I will be sharing lots of photos, gift ideas, DIYs and crafts during the holidays. I also LOVE participating in vendor shows during the holidays, so if you are local to Western Kentucky area, get on my email list so that you can find out where I will be with all of my pretties to shop for holiday gifts.
I have an amazing seasonal home and lifestyle box that will be delivered to your doorstep four times a year, Spring, Summer, Fall & Winter. ( UPDATE: my subscriptions are on pause for 2024.) In the meantime, be sure to check out all of the Embellished Home Decor goodies on the shopping site!
