Mommy Made Boutique

Welcome to my online retail corner and creative outlet! As you know, I like to manage, improve and meticulously plan details for my client’s lifestyle events and routines. I am a mom who loves to multi-task and create things. You may not know from this blog that I am also a full-time Wedding Coordinator and Life Event Planner professionally over at my own company, Green-Eyed Girl Productions.

I use my Etsy store to connect with all event planning people (brides, moms, etc) anyone throwing a party of any kind from shower, birthday to of course wedding!

But, I also use the store to fill my need for vintage and antique things {genetic from my mother I’m sure!} My favorite thing to do when I have a spare Sunday hour is go to estate sales, thrift shops and other markets to find beautiful vintage or antique items. That’s my Mommy “Me Time” anyway… you never know if I’ll find the perfect party ingredient!

I have TWO Etsy Stores actually. One for my Event Planning and another for this blog where I sell items pertaining to Mom Life as well as my Cotton N Kandi line of crochet HATS

Here is the other big piece you should probably know about me… if you haven’t gathered this already from my blog… I like to help others, especially MOMS improve their lifestyles and accomplish their goals. One of the common goals I see among many of my friends is the desire to build an online money making business…. enter:

 

I like Teams… and here’s the thing, I sort of suck at being a ‘friend’…. I know, you’re shocked! I am a MUCH better teammate! I will never come over, sit on your couch and watch The Bachelor for hours on end and listen to your problems… sorry, not your girl! BUT, if you have a dream, vision, idea and want to get going on something you’re passionate about {while being a mom} … I’m your teammate!

 

I have this addiction {I’m not working on it} for helping people {women} achieve their goals and be successful, which probably is genetic {thanks mom!} or stems from my High School Coaching Career where I got to guide hundreds of girls through a successful experience.

Any who… now that I’m a mom I’m drawn to other moms, especially ones who impress me with their awesomeness and creativity. I LOVE surrounding myself with people who do things better than me, it motivates and inspires me to work harder!

If you’re a blog follower you know me… If you’re looking into our Mommy Made Boutique for the first time let me tell you a bit about my TEAM:

I own and run my own businesses {mentioned above} so for years DIY has sort of my entire lifestyle, and very successfully so. Through my own endeavors, and all the exciting things they bring my way, I suppose you could say that my  TRUE profession is actually Full Time Crafter! When I became a Mommy in 2013 I closed up my shops and brought the businesses home with me. I then turned crafting into a much larger Mommy Money earning gig. I make the crochet hats to fund my Boys’ College Savings Accounts.

The best part of it all is that I’ve ran into some pretty awesome moms who are hand-making other awesome things as a way to support their families too! So naturally, I created a TEAM.

We’re baby Mommies making baby things! The core group of us went on to do our first joint Mommy Made craft show together this fall and it was a lot of fun and a HUGE success! {just registered for next year’s today!}


Here is how it went for 2015:
