About Windsor Lane
From Darkness To A Thriving Business and Happier Life
I was left the sole provider for my three children after my late husband Dan passed in 2012. To say I felt the world on my shoulders was an understatement. More like I felt the world caving in around me. Years of trying to be everything for everyone, moving on and blending a new family, and casting my own feelings aside later caught up with me and panic attacks set in.
My now husband, Aaron (co-founder) left his job after I became crippled with anxiety. I tried everything from medication to being hospitalized until I found a new way to cope. Through a program called The Dare Response and a suggestion that art therapy may help me. I was eager to try.
I was an artistic child, always creating and drawing. I had made “pallet signs” in the past and thought since Christmas was coming and money was tight that I would spend my days painting signs for my family. As most often do, I shared what I was up to on Facebook, never knowing what was in store for myself and my family.
Comments and messages started rolling in and people actually wanted to buy what I created! Before Aaron and I knew it we had ourselves a little business. It has been three years and we have grown by leaps and bounds. Not only on a business level but on a personal level as well. I am no longer a slave to panic attacks, although I still have anxiety I am much happier and for once can see the light at the end of a very dark tunnel.
On the surface our business handcrafts quality hardwood wall signs and candles. Our quotes are meant to inspire and create laughter to encourage a healthier and more joyful lifestyle.
