When people ask me why I chose to open a business three weeks before my first son was born, I often say “cuz I’m crazy!” Which is probably partly true. But really, I wanted to help other mothers because I knew the struggle. When I was pregnant with Jaxon, I did too much the baby research - all the best products, brands, organic v. non-organic, etc. Then I thought, wouldn’t it be super cool if I started a retail shop with all the amazing things? I envisioned a one-stop-shop where I brought the best products for new mothers. With that, the vision for my business was born.
Over the last nine years my business has changed a lot! I went from being “retail” and offering other amazing brands, to handmade only, and then sprinkled in again a few retail items (handmade by other mothers), and then I went through a rebranding four years ago. Even with that all, my vision is still the same: I want to help mothers.
My jewelry line consists of natural gemstone jewelry as well as Baltic amber teething necklaces. Working with natural elements to create my jewelry gives me a sense of peace and happiness. I have made and sold over 2000 pieces of Baltic amber jewelry for children and adults. It is by far my best-selling item in the shop and my favorite to make.
In March of 2020, I launched a new postpartum wellness line. Going through the “postpartum” phase is hard; any mother can tell you that. It is a huge change in your life with sleep deprivation, breastfeeding, healing, accepting your new body, accepting you will never be alone again, and more! The goal of my new wellness products is aimed to make that part of your life a little easier. It was made specifically for that “fourth-trimester” period right after delivering your baby. My handcrafted products are perfect for a mother-to-be, multi-purpose, use only the best sourced natural ingredients, and made with love.
I hope you enjoy!
