The dreaded first post, so many questions, how to get started, how to get my product to millions of people, how to pronounce Padme. I’m sure thats what all of you reading this are thinking. Well lets start there, it’s pronounce (Pad-may), yes this is exactly like the star wars chick. We may or may not have named our child from a star wars reference. Does that make us super cool, or super lame? Either way.
When I became a mom my whole life changed, as I’m sure a lot of you know. I’m a full-time student and a full-time mom, but I have a baby who is just super chill and lets me get lots done during the day. This is a blessing and a curse. I sometimes find myself with way too much time on my hands. A few weeks into motherhood I broke out my trusty sewing machine that I hadn’t touched in about a year and just started sewing way too many things. Toys, quilts, clothes, there was no way my child could use all of this stuff! Also being a pretty young mom I didn’t have many friends that I could just give all the extras away to. This gave me an idea, why not try and make a little extra money to help support my amazing child. People do it everyday right?
Now just because I have “extra time” on my hands doesn’t mean I don’t work hard on my projects. I would never make anything that wasn’t good enough for my own child, and I just want to create beautiful things that people can love. That is my mission. My daughter may have been my inspiration but what keeps me going is making things that people will fall in love with and cherish for many years to come.
