Quitting is not an option

Posted November 2, 2018 from Nigeria

Tosin turns trash to treasure is a project idea to train abused women that nothing is trash, everything is an asset, it depends on whose perspective,  moreso, if anyone treats another person like trash, the person treated like trash can say "No! I am a teasure, if you fail to see that, its your loss"

 

It was directed towards mindset change only, until I decided that I want a business that can support my non profit. Innovative mind set in and I began to create many treasures out of trash. The hardest trash is the trash generated from trash. So getting tiny pieces of fabrics to become assets was achieved with my wall art.

 

Creating my wall art is a very hard task. As time goes on, I discovered that the more I create, the more they get more beautiful and the more I get good buyers . These days, I am in love with my art work. Its hard to make but I will not stop creating my treasures. 

 

What is it that awesome thing that is looking so hard for you to achieve ? Pray if you believe in prayer, rest if you need it, suspend it if you need more time to think but dont quit. The more you put  your heart into it, the more the universe will support your efforts. All the best to everyone struggling as a caterpillar,  it needs a little time for the butterfly to emerge and you will smile in the end.

My dear wonderful sister Tosin,

I have watched for some time now as your treasures have emerged and grown in numbers and size, in variety and design, elephants and lions and strong women cascading, parading into the world and loved by so many of us. That you are turning trash into treasure, and that you have shown so many women the way to create treasure for themselves and be able to treasure themselves and their lives, all this is what I cherish about you and describe to others when they ask what do I mean when I say WorldPulse Sister. I say, there is so much to say, but here's one way to explain. Let me tell you about Tosin.

Much love as always,
Tam

Hi Olu,

I'm surprised you have time to write, dear:-) LOL. It's lovely to see your artwork and post, though. You always have something inspiring to say. You do inspire me to not give up and to keep doing my best, with heart. It helps me stay on track, for sure. Thank you for your inspiring words and encouragement.

I would like to know why the wall art is so hard? Where do you get the trash and what do you use?

Hope you're having a great day, dear!

Oh I love to write here, but I decided to give space for others to write while I just always come to comment and encourage them.
I have back and waist pains, when I decide to stand, my feet are always swollen too.
Sisters from many countries send their scraps of fabrics from quilters to me.
I use pieces of fabrics.
Thank you very much my darling sister

That was nice:) I just know you're so busy.

What? Oh no:( Do you get massages and take soothing bathes? That's not good, dear:(

That's very cool. I keep telling people they should be following your successful model. I do hope you still are considering patenting and selling your program/selling technique so that others can use it. I think it will help so many other sisters and their orgs.

You're welcome. I hope you feel better soon, dear:)

Have a good one.

Oh yes dear sister, massages help.
I am still thinking about it. I am not really keen anymore about printing techniques because I cant explain how I create those things, more of inspiration than talent.

Oh, that's good. I hope you get plenty, then:-)

That makes sense. I meant more the "treasure system" rather than the techniques involved. You may not want to divulge your trade secrets...ha:-)

Dear sister Olutosin,
I love this thought, quitting is not an option. I have seen how intricate your art is and how much labour, thought and creativity goes behind them. Most of all to create them for business and manage your non-profit organization and family as well is an uphill task. But you have done all this because you are a powerhouse my sister and so many women around the world, endure in hope for better days like the caterpillar just looking at you. Keep marching.
Love and kisses,
Urmila Chanam,
