Hello! Colby Crockett here and welcome to curations&co. I hope you love what we are doing as it is JUST getting started. I began this company at the beginning of 2020. As a senior in college at Kansas State University and getting a degree in business/sales and having a love for fashion I knew this is what I wanted to do.
The name curations&co. aka C&Co. has many meanings behind the magic.
Starting with the double C’s. The double C’s represent my name, Colby Crockett, and also represent one of my favorite verses. 2 Corinthians 5:7 “For we live by faith, not by sight.”
You see, starting this business, I took a leap of faith. It required an abundance of time, effort, and money. But what it required most was faith. Faith that it was going to work, that this was my plan from God himself. Throughout this process, 2 Corinthians 5:7 is what I've lived by. Through the ups, downs, and unknowns of starting my business, this verse has remained applicable through my whole experience.
Next, the word “curation.” According to Google this means: “the action or process of selecting, organizing, and looking after the items in a collection.” From the physical aspect of my business, this is exactly what I do. However, there is so more to it than that! I see this term as something much bigger than a definition. I see it more like this:
“Don’t settle for nice, for pleasant, for familiar. Keep looking until you find something that really moves you, that resonates with your core. And I mean this for people, for interests, for hobbies, for your possessions, clothes, music, books, art. Everything. CURATE every aspect of your life, as much as you can. It’s in the things that deeply inspire us that we find ourselves. Surround yourself with truth, and you’ll have built yourself a heaven.” Author unknown.
It’s your choice to curate the life you want. And that is exactly what I’m trying to do. I hope each and every one of you finds something here at c&co. that inspires you and makes you feel beautiful! And I hope each and every one of you finds that fire that burns through you that motivates you to build your own heaven. Just like I did.
