Things were hard, but I
never gave up!
I was working an office job and felt so accomplished. It was my first office job and I had proven the world wrong– they told me I wasn’t good enough and here I was making a decent life for myself.
(Spoiler alert: I continue to prove them wrong to this day!)
But, I was also dealing with a lot of daily struggles outside of work like most of us. I needed a safe space to deal with it and so I started crafting. I started making custom t-shirts for family and friends and their priceless reactions gave me a reason to continue.
So I decided to start a business in 2017– Cassy Custom Designs– making custom t-shirts out my closet, while working my 9-5. I was making okay money but then one week in late 2019, I hit my first $1,000 week printing custom t-shirts and that was the moment I decided to quit my 9-5 to pursue my custom t-shirt business full-time! But it didn’t last very long...
Sometimes you have to pivot and learn from your failures.
I quickly realized that custom shirts were only seasonal and that people didn’t buy them 24/7. So after quitting my 9-5 and my t-shirt business slowing down, I started my second business- Blanks Galore selling wholesale sublimation blanks to the craft community in 2019. Since it was a new business then the money wasn’t coming in quite fast enough. So a few months later I got evicted from my apartment, and me and my son had to move into a hotel. But like I said, I didn’t give up. I started crafting and making custom t-shirts right out of my hotel by day and me and my son was packing sublimation blanks out of our storage unit by evening.Then one day I created a Facebook group “Blanks Galore Academy,” “called them my WOLFPACK tribe), turned on my camera and started going live from my hotel, showing them how to craft and make custom t-shirts as well. That’s when my life did a total 360.
With me staying consistent during the hard times, by 2020 Blanks Galore were bringing in 3k, 13k, then 87k months!
Since then we have been able to get 2 full warehouses located in Atlanta Ga, pushing out our own branded BG sublimation paper and sublimation ink. We also now provide the craft world with sublimation hands on classes , online classes, sublmation printers and heat presses for them to start their craft journey. And by the grace of God, since 2021, I have been able to hire my sisters, brothers, and mom full time, and we have managed to bring in multi 7 figures every 3 months. We have also grown a Facebook group community “Blanks Galore Academy,” of 80k+ crafters who want to learn how to take their hobby and turn it into profit.
We welcome crafters from all walks of their crafting journey– whether you’re a new crafter who wants to learn sublimation or an advanced crafter who wants to learn how to sell sublimation products– you’re in the right place!

I decided to join crafting mastermind in 2020. Before joining, all I was able to do was vinyl and create designs. Since joining, I learned what was sublimation, how how to sublimate, sublimate on vinyl, mugs, pillows, canvases, backpacks,etc. I love tha way Cassandra and the team talk you step by step through classes. When you get stuck, all you have to do is ask questions. I was just making creations just because. Now i have my LLC and working on more. If they don’t know how to create something, just give them a couple days and they got you . One of the best decisions that I have ever made.
