The beginning of Creek Baby Co
My journey to opening up this small shop started from brand repping. Just like many other moms, I found myself taking pictures of my little one daily and posting them to Instagram. I had no idea about this amazing community of handmade small shops until one day a fellow shop commented on my daughters pictures. After that I was hooked to all things handmade. I loved the idea of supporting another hard working mama to fulfill their dreams of having their own business. It wasn't long after this introduction to the community that I too found myself wanting to be a "mompreneur" as well. I owe it all to my dear friend Hillary (@blushingbellesco) for pushing me to start my own shop. I had no idea what I was getting myself into, but I was excited about the possibilities.
Coming up with a name came pretty easy, I started out small making rompers for little Nyla and posting them to her Instagram account @littlecreekbaby. And just like that a light bulb went off and so Creek Baby Co began.
The first year came with its struggles. At the time, I was working a full time job in the corporate medical field over-seeing 17 primary care offices. I would spend my nights working on orders after the kids went to bed. I can still recall several endless nights filled with coffee and the sounds of my serger going off while the whole house slept. I never imagined in my wildest dreams that I would one day quit my job and venture down the road to becoming my own boss.
Flash forward to today, I now run Creek Baby Co full time. I wake up every day so thankful to have found this handmade community. The relationship with my customers and fellow shop owners is whats truly amazing about this adventure. I get to watch all of your sweet little babes grow up and seeing my clothes tagged is a feeling I don't think I'll ever truly be able to express.
So for that.....THANK YOU for supporting my dream and helping me grow. I'm so glad to have you all beside me on this journey!
I'll leave you with a picture of my sweet little sewing partner.
