Something Crafty

In the Spotlight this week is Susan from Something Crafty. In Susan's words:

"I make & hand paint kids table & chair sets, toy boxes, growth charts, glass block night lights, and anything else you might have in mind. I also make diaper cakes for baby showers."
Q & A
CC:What inspired you to start your business?
Susan: I can’t say that one particular thing inspired me to start my business but strong will and circumstance played a big role. My husband and I had just had our second child in August of 2009 and I was unable to get maternity leave because I had been self employed running a home daycare. I didn’t want to reopen the daycare, it just wasn’t for me but I had a strong desire to be able to stay at home with my 2 little boys and was looking for answers on how to go about doing that. In the mean time I sold things from around the house that we no longer used to help make ends meet. I had a bunch of old wooden chairs that I used for my home daycare, I didn’t have any use for them so I stripped them down and repainted them so I could sell them (If you look in my facebook album called “refurbished items” these first sets of chairs I made are all in there). When my friends and family saw how they turned out they suggested that I make more chairs and tables to match and try selling them. I already had a good working knowledge of a lot of power tools as I have delved into a lot of home renovations so that part didn’t worry me. I had a love for crafts and a head for math so I thought “why not?”. I got to work drawing up plans and crunching numbers to figure out what my costs would be and how to price things. By February of 2010 “Something Crafty” was an officially registered business and things were picking up quickly and haven’t slowed down since.
CC: What's your favourite part of your job?
Susan: My absolute favorite part is being able to be at home with my 2 boys, now ages 18 months and 3 years. I also love the creative outlet the business gives me and the challenges it brings. I love designing new products and doing the calculations for the blueprints. I’m kind of a nerd when it comes to math, I love it.
CC: The most challenging?
Susan: The most challenging part would be finding the time to work on things between diaper changes and housework. As time goes on and my youngest becomes more independent it is getting a little easier. I also have a hard time taking time off for myself; separating myself from the business. I work work work and sacrifice a lot of time to grow the business but it is necessary at this point as my business is still in it’s infancy. Another challenge is space, I am currently doing all my cutting and sanding in a spare room in our basement. Manitoba winters aren’t too nice for working outside but once spring hits I can get back outdoors to do those things and minimize the mess inside.
CC: Tell us what you envision and dream for the future of your business?
Susan: One day I dream of having a large heated shop where I can comfortably work. Beyond that I dream of having a store front where I can have a shop in the back with a window looking into the front room of the store. After I take the kids to school I will spend my days there. It’s silly but I can even picture myself wearing an artists apron chalked full of my paint brushes and splattered with all the different colors of paint. After school I can pick up the kids and bring them back to the store where they can work on homework and paint pictures until it’s supper time. I think having a separate work place would allow me to separate work from home and give me some “me” time apart from the business.
CC: Tell us about some new products you are excited about?
Susan: I want to create some new things that can be easily shipped. Toy boxes and tables and chairs aren’t exactly affordable to ship and does limit my customer base. So I am currently working on some cute book ends for kids and some name plaques for kids and inspiration plaques for grownups.
CC: Do you have a favourite inspirational quote?
Susan: My best friend gave me a plaque when I got married, it reads “Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow”. I love it. It reminds of where this all got started, to slow down and enjoy today, and to not worry about tomorrow but instead dream about the future and all the potential it holds. I also love the quote “Keep calm and carry on”, something I need to remember when orders start piling up like they did at Christmas time when I was practically painting in my sleep just to get them all done in time.

I had the opportunity to review a hand painted chalk board from something crafty. I was to choose the colors but could not decide, I let Susan know that we had 2 boys and 2 girls and gave her free rain over the finished product.
Both the kids and I were super excited when it arrived. She had painted it a very sparkly green and placed green bling around the edges. There is sparkly ribbon attached so it can be hung up. It is perfect for either a kitchen or kids bedroom or really any other room in the house.
Because of all its sparkle my kids have decided to call it their window to fairy world. They spend hours everyday drawing pictures of their fairy friends and the best part about it other then I get hours of quite time is that its great for the environment. Before getting this chalk board we went through package after package of paper, my kids love to draw and write and create and this has helped save on paper and in return save money!!!
The blackboard wipes clean with just a dry cloth and every night I give it a quick wash down with a damp rag. This product is truly money well spent!!!
Something Crafty is offereing 10 of our readers a great discount. A mini chalkboard (the same size as the one I reviewed) for $15.00 and FREE SHIPPING with in Canada (This is a great discount as shipping cost's approx $15.00) You the customer gets to pick the border color. It will be first come first serve with payments being via paypal or by personal check. Boards will be shipped when payment is complete.

More Than Baby Blankets

In the Spotlight this week is Sisters Deanna and Marian from More then Baby Blankets. In their words:

"We love babies and kids and think they need more than just handmade blankets. They need handmade STUFF! Sleep sacks, carseat canopies, smocks, doll accessories, and places to put their stuff!"


CC: What inspired you to start your business?
Deanna: I started sewing a lot after my daughter was born and became sort of addicted to sewing so much so that I was sewing more things than I needed!  The best way to cure this problem seemed to start a little Etsy shop and post all my excess sewing projects there.  I love that I can sew all I want now and not be like "Oh, now what do I do with it?"  

Marian: I was asked by Deanna and since I LOVE sewing, this gave me a really good excuse to sew.

CC: How does the balance of family and work play out for you?

Deanna:   My daughter is 9 months old and still does best on 2 naps a day giving me at least almost 4 hours of me time.  That's when I get my sewing in.  The shop hasn't been too demanding so far, so it all goes pretty smoothly.  We are attending a Spring Market here soon though, so I have to start stocking up on things!
Marian:  Sewing is more of a hobby for me, not work.  And it's something that my two girls seem interested in...when they are older, I'll be able to teach them while I sew.

CC: Tell us what you envision and dream for the future of your business?
We don't really have any big dreams for this yet.  We are not looking for full time work besides our kids, so this is just a side venture to bring us some "Play Money".  I'd love to get busy enough and big enough that we can keep ourselves sewing without the stress of multiple demands.


CC: Tell us about some new products you are excited about?
Deanna:    I am working on some super cute little animal teething toys right now.  I hope to have them in the shop soon.  Honestly, I get excited about everything I make. I keep dreaming up all these new things I could make and then when I post them all in the shop I think our shop looks so disorganized!  It's all kids stuff though, so I guess that makes it a one-stop-shop kind of place.

Marian: From our own?  I love all our products.  The doll sets are really neat and they are something you can't just buy in a store.  In fact all of our products are things you can't     just buy in any old store.  And I love the fact the all of our products are homemade and thus will last a long time.  They have the guarantee of longitivity that you don't     get with store bought products.

CC: What's your favourite part of your job?
Deanna: Fabric shopping and dreaming up how to use it all!  I love fabric and I love creating and my job lets me do both while still doing my mommy job, staying home with my daughter.

Marian: Sewing of course...and seeing the end product.  I love sewing new things and finding out that I can actually make them well.  I also get very excited when one of our  products sells.

CC:  Do you have a favourite inspirational quote?

We don't really have a favourite quote, but we are definitely encouraged by reading in God's word that we must use our talents to the best of our abilities.  We see this as part of that.  We have a talent for creating useful things with fabric and so we are exploiting that talent and letting others benefit from it too.

I had the opportunity to review a Monkey Blanket from Button Scraps. As soon as the package arrived my youngest child (1 yr old) took it as his. My three older children (8, 6 and 3 yr old) also love this blanket! It is the perfect size for infants and toddlers to snuggle with or have tagging along behind them! My youngest likes to use it to play hide & seek, peek a boo and to just cuddle with. Button Scraps has many fabric choices to choose from, we picked the John Deere Fleece. Very soft and comfy for a little one. Button Scraps places a variety of ribbons with different sizes, colors and textures which are great to help stimulate the mind. The craftsmanship of this blanket is very professional. Shipping was fast and communication with Desiree has been joyful. I highly recommend purchasing from this hard working WAHM!!!

Darling Dilemma

In the Spotlight this week is Emma from Darling Dilemma. In Emma's words

"One person's dilemma is another person's delight."

Q & A
CC: How long have you been in business?

     Emma: 1 Year!! I actually just reached my one year etsy-versary & celebrated with sales & specials.
It was great fun & I've had the best year sharing what I do with the facebook & etsy universe!

CC: Is there a special place that inspires you?

     Emma: Definatly my new home of New Brunswick & especially Irving park with it's oceanshore & amazing forest trails! If you look at my photography & even my jewelry photos I think it is obvious. When the weather is good I often take my jewelry pieces outside with me & even over to Irving park to photograph them in nature.

CC: Do you have a favourite inspirational quote?

     Emma: I've always repeated a line from the Ani Difranco song,Out of Habit "Art is why I get up in the morning, but my definition ends there" but also on a blog the other day I read 'make with the fabulous'... I love that idea!

CC: What inspired you to start your business?

     Emma: Etsy itself! From the moment a friend recommended it in passing I was hooked! I almost instantly knew I wanted an etsy shop, I just need the time & the product. Life was chaotic then & I just stuck to shopping but eventually the time came & I dedicated my creativity &
energy to making it happen. One year later, here I am!

CC: What's coming up next for you and your business?

     Emma: Well my ultimate goal, or dream is to have my own store one day... but until that can happen I will continue to make, create & share it all! I have just started to make my own beads & incorporate them into my pieces, so you can expect to see more of that & see how that
progresses. I'm also starting to include my photography for sale & down the line you will be able to buy reproductions of my art works! That should keep me busy along with my two jobs & family I think

A Lovely Start

In the Spotlight is A Lovely Start. In the shop owner Michelle's words:

"Welcome to A Lovely Start! ...because your baby deserves A Lovey Start!"

Q & A

CC: When and why did you start your business?

     Michelle: After becoming a Mom, I started looking for a creative outlet, something that I could do and take pride in that was mine. I think that is why A lovely Start came to be.
So when I bought my first cloth diaper for my son, I checked out the construction and thought, "I could make this!" And I did! I began sewing for my children, then some friends, and then trades; in November 2008 I received my first custom order through word of mouth. I guess that was the official beginning of A Lovely Start!

CC: Tell us what you envision and dream for the future of your business?
     Michelle: I really want to build and maintain a reputation while the children are still home all day. For now my quantities are not great, but I want to be sure the quality is. It is hard to keep up somedays, but I do what I can. My dream is to really expand and grow once the children are all in school and I have a little more time to sit and really create!

CC: Tell us about some new products you are excited about?
     Michelle: I am really excited about some of the things I have been doing with Upcycled Wool lately! My embellished Footies are a new product I introduced this winter and they have been a hit! I have also upped the bar a bit on my embellished longies. I am very excited about an upcoming stocking of embellished woolies!
I have also been working on a line of slippers and will be releasing those in time for the Fall!

CC: What's your favorite part of your job?
     Michelle: That is a tough one, I love it all! Maybe the best part is when my two year old daughter comes in to "inspect" my latest creations. She gushes over everything, she is my biggest fan!

CC: How does the balance of family and work play out for you?
     Michelle: I have to say, for now, Family is first. It is tough to balance and work happens when the kids are sleeping and the house is caught up... well at least the dishes are done! Good thing I am a night hawk!

CC: Do you have a favorite quote?
     Michelle: "It is better to aim for the stars and miss, than the gutter and hit." Unknown

 Deluxe Waterproof Change Pads


I am super excited to post this review for a Pail Liner from A Lovely Start. Up until a couple days ago I had 2 children in diapers full time. We have enough diapers to last us so we can wash diaper laundry every other day. For the past 4 years I have just used a 10 gallon pail to hold our diapers between wash’s, but as you can imagine that gets stinky fast and had to be washed out every time I dumped the diapers in the laundry. The pail liner has made a big difference.

The size of the pail liner is great. It fit’s the 10 gallon pail perfectly. It hold’s well over two days worth of diapers from two children. I have been using it for approx 1 month now and I have had no problems with smell. It seems to absorb all the nasty smells even with out using the awesome
bamboo tab for drops of tea tree oil or your favourite essential oil. I wash it right in with my diapers and even dry it in the dryer on high. There has been no problems with leakage and after approx 15 wash’s it still looks brand new. The elastic is still tight and the stitching is perfect.


A Lovely Start is offering 5 of our readers a really great discount on their Pail Liners. Follow this link
To get 25% off. Reg $17 but with discount $12.75 plus shipping. This deal won't last long so hurry and get yours!!
