With 2 ladies at my work expecting their own little miracles, babies are definitely on the brain!  I have always much preferred supporting a small business & getting something special for baby showers, although can’t resist popping into the chain stores for a few cute little outfits!

While exploring the world of social media, I came across this great little business that makes the most gorgeous custom baby mobiles & toys.  Her images immediately drew me in & I knew that I had to order some of these goodies for my friends.

Tell me a bit more about what you do:  I create mostly hand sewn baby décor items. I have recently dusted of my sewing machine as well to combine the two to create items.

When did you start & what made you want to start this business:  I started in January this year. I made mobiles before as gifts for my friends who encouraged me to start this. It has been so much fun and I have surpassed my expectations of what I thought would come from it.

What did you do before this:  It is a part-time hobby business. My day job is as a scientist in the food industry.

Do you do custom pieces:  YES!! I am not a fan of repeating the same item and love a new challenge! So custom orders are most welcome and encouraged.

What are some of your most popular pieces:  Woodlands and llama themed orders as well as baby gyms and dangles.

Can people still order from you for Christmas:  Currently I am a bit busy so will not be taking new orders but orders can be placed for shipping in January.

How do people place an order with you:  They can email me or send a message via IG or Facebook.

Why do you encourage people to support local:  Local small businesses form out of a passion for their trade. To support that makes for a happy a passionate individual (which is good for society) and creates the opportunity for the business to grow and thus lead to potential job creation.

Don’t you think that her creations are absolutely gorgeous?  They will fit in with any theme & truly be the finishing touch in any baby room (or even a small child’s room really).  I will show you pics of what I have ordered when they arrive & my friend who is receiving them – just have to keep it under wraps until then…  But boy oh boy am I super excited to see how these come out!

Please remember to support local.  I just love Kim & her majestic designs!  There are so many different creations & themes that I honestly can’t tell you which is my favourite – although of course the unicorn is right up there for me.
