Rebecca on a visit to Zambia, at orphanage
Born and raised in Windhoek, Namibia (a country with the second lowest population density in the world) I have always been different, and in recent years I have finally begun to embrace that. I have a wide skill set and as in the parable of the talents it seems the more I use them the more skills I acquire. I love learning new things, and the bravery is ever increasing as I step out and try my hand at something new. The Lord has always provided for me in every situation, we are dear friends, and I am super excited to see what he has in store for me and my business! I feel that ReLoved is a small reflection of the father's heart because he takes us out of the garbage, and then works on us to create something wonderful! We are not only rescued, we are ReLoved!! Everytime I salvage something I think about how God is constantly in the business of salvaging. He is desperately in love with us and so badly wants for us to radiate sheer brilliance!
-How did you get your start on Etsy?
After a craft show last summer I was looking to find something a little less intense and slightly more consistent. Someone had suggested Etsy and one thing just led to another and I've had a great time so far! Finding a team however is what has kept me going.
-What does a typical day look like for you?
I provide day care for my niece about 40 hours a week and in my free time I cut, glue, solder, spray paint, drill, and find other ways to turn unwanted junk into wonderful treasures. Outside of that there's nothing typical about my days.
-If you could be anywhere in the world for one day, where would it be?
Fiji! I've wanted to go there since I was 13, however I really honestly want to travel everywhere!! I would love to cover the map! There's not a place in the world I wouldn't want to go if not for a moment just to see it.
-What is your favorite Bible verse?
2 He made my mouth like a sharpened sword,
in the shadow of his hand he hid me;
he made me into a polished arrow
and concealed me in his quiver.
3 He said to me, "You are my servant,
Israel, in whom I will display my splendor."
-What is your favorite Etsy item listing to feature?
I love my pistachio shell brooches, mainly because I think I've cornered the market on them. I feel it is something truly unique, I've never seen anything like them, and that makes me really happy.
