Welcome to VK Girl Creations!
In 2015, Victoria was introduced to knitting by her life skills teacher in high school, Mrs. Megan Turner. What started out as a hobby quickly turned into something more to showcase Victoria's creative talent! Our journey started with Vics Knitz, an opportunity for Vic to show her abilities and creative beanie hats. The picture above shows her very first vendor market booth at Dickinson High School at the Abilities Fair. Victoria made a name for herself within the special needs community to serve as an inspiration to others to always believe in their abilities. In order for Vics Knitz to participate year round in vendor markets, we decided to add another accessory to our inventory-handcrafted beaded bracelets.
Vics Knitz participated as a vendor in many local markets and was honored to be invited as a vendor at the CASA Galveston County Texas Conference in 2019. This was one of the Biggest opportunities for us in terms of being in contact with many people. It was a terrific learning experience for us both to learn how we can prepare for shows outside of the local vendor markets we were accustomed to. We had fun connecting with many people from all over Texas!
Victoria also had the opportunity to work an internship at 2 local small clothing boutiques to learn more about what it takes to have a small business.
May 2020 was a special month for our team as we graduated from college!
Victoria received a vocational certificate for completing courses in the STRIVE program at Alvin Community College. I (Jennifer) graduated from Houston Community College and received my Associate of Arts in Multidisciplinary Studies with High Honors! This was an unforgettable experience that was celebrated with online commencement ceremonies and a car parade down our street with family and friends!
In 2020, with the changes our world endured we decided to take a leap of faith and pursue a goal we both had. In order to continue to grow, we decided a change needed to occur.
This was the beginning of
VK Girl Creations!
We wanted to create a brand that could continue to grow beyond our knitted creations and bracelets. The logo represents us, a mother daughter team, in so many ways. We wanted to keep the VK because it was the foundation of our company (Vics Knitz). The colors represented in our logo are important to us. Red represents Victoria, a Heart Disease survivor and the color Purple is her favorite color. The butterfly in our logo represents us both with 2 Purple hearts on the logo. Victoria is such a social butterfly and a true inspiration to all. I love monarch butterflies and I have a hobby of raising monarchs in my garden to help grow the population. In everything that we do, it is always the two of us together living the best life that we can!
Today, the business is operated by us both, we collaborate with the design and creation process. All our products are handcrafted in our home workshop! The majority of the website and social media accounts are run by me, Mom. Victoria is learning more of the functions so that we can both make sure everything runs smooth.
One of our main goals is to create quality products. With each product a lot of time and love goes into the design of each VK Girl Creation!
We are truly excited for you to follow our journey!
Victoria & Jennifer
