This week we're featuring a great handmade shop that amazingly donates 50% of each sale to charity! I'm happy to introduce Baby Moon Boutique and owner/creator Nichole.
My name is Nichole and I am a wife to my wonderful husband Tim, boutique owner, organizer of a non-profit, and a stay at home mom to 4 boys- Max (14), Cooper (4), Brodie (2), and Jacksen (1). I also dream of fostering to adopt a child one day.
I began my journey with Baby Moon Boutique in November 2011 after the birth of my youngest son. I wanted to make my son some new items and re-found my passion for sewing. I started with minky blankets and rag quilts. They are so soft and I just love making them. Then I began expending to soft toys with child development in mind. Each toy is unique to Baby Moon as I create each item from pattern to finished product by hand.
I love networking and getting to know my fellow shop owners. My favorite way to network is through a Facebook group called Craft Junkies that I also admin with 3 other wonderful shop owners. I am also a new plus member of the Indie A-List and am loving the community!
I truly love to sew and creating beautiful products. Because of my dream to foster to adopt a child, 50% of each sale is donated to West Valley Child Crisis Center. Being able to donate is a blessing that motivates and pushes me to be better.
Needing sleep is quite challenging. At times, I struggle finding balance between all of my duties as a mom, business owner, wife, etc. I have a strict schedule that has helped me overcome this struggle allowing time to be the best mom my kids deserve and run my striving business.
You can find Baby Moon Boutique on Facebook, Storenvy, Etsy, Twitter, blog, Pinterest, and Instagram.
