In July 2018, I closed my home daycare. I never dreamed I’d be in a position to have a nomination for an award for my new endeavour a short time after!

I believe it is the power of positive, like-minded women who have propelled me where I am now.

Since I’ve been out of the traditional business world for over a decade, it was important to me that I align myself with like-minded women. I am thankful to have found a group of Mompreneurs who are definitely my kinda ladies (moms, business owners, and all-around awesome) that meet regularly.

The one amazing thing about this group is that they welcomed me with open arms right from the beginning.

What Is Mompreneur?

Mompreneurs “support, educate, and empower moms in business. We are dedicated to bringing the businesses and talents of moms in business and female entrepreneurs into recognition for our collective community.

Our network encourages and facilitates connecting members to other women and businesses across Canada, providing affordable ways for female entrepreneurs to promote their businesses, advocating for female entrepreneurs and women in business both locally and nationally, and creating an online presence for female entrepreneurs in one centralized location.” source

Nomination

Mompreneurs has given me wonderful friends and I’ve also been blessed by having been nominated for a Mompreneur Award.

To have my handmade business recognized by my peers warms my heart and brings a bounce to my step. When you work by yourself, it’s easy to get lost in the to do’s and lose sight of your accomplishments. This nomination is an important step in my own appreciation of how far I’ve come in my business.

Will You Vote For Me?

Voting runs from December 9 until December 15, 2019. You can vote once every 24 hours. Thanks if you can – it would mean a lot!!

Thank you for your support for me and my business. I’m excited to keep creating knit and crochet character hats, patterns, and children’s books to tell each character’s story.

Until next time, may the yarn be with you.

Christmas Wedding Quilt

For my cousin Michelle’s wedding on August 11, 2012, I made this cozy queen-sized winter quilt. She loves winter and Christmas so I was inspired to use flannel and reindeer prints. This quilt I did free motion stipple quilting using a “homemade frame” and my domestic sewing machine.

Hello Kitty Graphghan

On July 30, 2014 I joined the graphghan trend and completed my very first graphghan of Hello Kitty. It was a lot easier than I thought to get started. First I searched online for a graph of Kitty. When I found the one I wanted to depict in the crochet blanket, I simply printed the chart and designed the rest of the afghan around her.   What do you think?

Ice Cream Cone Purse

We had a crochet party for my daughter a few years ago (I believe for her 7th birthday). I made these adorable purses as part of the girls loot bags (they also had a crochet hook and ball of yarn included). The girls loved them so much I made a few extra for my shop. They measures approximately 6″ wide by 7.5″ tall. My daughter is modeling different ways to wear the purses.
