My name is Kate and I am the WAHM behind Blue
Room Creations! I am mom to two rambunctious boys and wife to my
Sewing and textiles run in my blood. My love of fabrics and colors began at an early age growing up in my mother's fabric store. After school I would hang out in the store, wander through the stacks of fabric and work on my own little projects out of scraps. In addition to my my mother's fabric store and interior design business, my grandmother had a successful purse-making business. My sewing machine rests on a century-old sewing machine table that belonged to my great-great grandmother. I love thinking that I am sitting there sewing on the same table that generations of women in my family have sat at as welll.
All of my creations are lovingly crafted in my blue painted craft studio, hence the name Blue Room Creations. This room is my sanctuary in a house full of noisy boys and my sanity saver!
I love to create items that are not only beautiful and fun, but that also serve a purpose--functional items don't have to be boring! My product line includes hair accessories, key fobs, wallets, cozies, e-reader and tablet covers, tote bags, purses and more!
A warm welcome to The Cloth Canoe!
I'm Genevieve, owner & creator behind The Cloth Canoe. I make and sell unique designer cloth diapers & reusable cloth pads for women, using top quality fabrics such as bamboo, organic cotton & designer prints. I strive to provide parents with exceptional quality items for their babies and for themselves.
The Cloth Canoe was opened in 2004 after having observed a need for unique, well made cloth diapers that replaced disposable diapers. As a parent I am very conscious of the products we use on our babies, and I was discouraged at the amount of garbage disposables created in landfills. 1 child will use over 9000 diapers in 3 years, and cost over 3000$. The cost of cloth diapers is much less, and these can be used not only for one child, but for 2, 3 or even 4 children. Our cloth diapers are extremely well made and lasts many years. It is a wonderful investment, and a great way to save the earth from disposables in landfills.
Our cloth diapers are made with our own pattern, which have been extensively tested before being put on the market. They are very trim with a great coverage, a flat front with no extra bulk. The design allows for quick drying time, and offers the best absorbency out there.
We also offer reusable cloth pads for women in four sizes; pantiliners for light flow and everyday wear, regular flow for moderate flow, heavy for moderate to heavy flow and overnight/postpartum for, you guessed it, overnight and postpartum flow. They are backed by fleece and wings to keep them in place. We use quality materials that are extremely soft, with funky minky designs and organic bamboo. Once you try our cloth pads you will never want to use disposable pads ever again!
Take a look around, we are sure that you will love browsing our store!
Kobieta (kOb-jyet-a) is the Polish word for "Woman".
Part of my heritage is Pole and I think the word rings beautifully.
And who am I? My name is Nikki Plank. I am the WAHM behind Tadpoles & Butterflies Children's Clothing. I have ran TNB for over 8 years online, the last 5 being on Hyenacart where I have 100% feedback. I have a lifetime of experience in sewing and design and am happy to be able to share that with you.
Please feel free to check my feedback at Tadpoles & Butterflies, Universal Mama and Fresh on Hyenacart as well as over a thousand positive feedback at Ebay for my years selling my clothing there.
I was inspired to open Kobieta after my own frustration at finding stylish comfortable clothing for plus size women. If it is cute, it is usually too small. Or if I by chance find nice plus size then it may only fit my bust but look like a sack in the waist or be to short. After talking with many women of many sizes, I realized this was universal problem,,from the tiny petite to the extra extra larges.
So I decided, I wanted clothing that would fit me, curves and all, and fit me well.....and I want to share that vision with women all sizes, from the smallest frame to largest.
Woman,,Kobieta,,,,no matter what size, age or figure...because style is not a size.

My name is June Gonzalez and I am a work-at-home
mom. I live in Rhode Island with my wonderful, funny, sweet engineer of
a hubby; our twins, a boy and a girl who are 17 and constantly at each
other’s throats; and a houseful of animals.
My mom first noticed my artistic abilities when I was quite young, and encouraged and nurtured them as I grew up. I took a lot of art classes. I eventually received a BA in studio art and promptly threw it in a closet and forgot about it. I was so tired of art!
I then began working as an animal control officer in southern New Mexico. After 8 years of chasing dogs and trapping skunks, I quit to move with my husband to Michigan. I had the twins, and when they were 18 months old, my husband presented me with a used wheel and kiln! I was actually quite angry with him at the time. I felt like he thought I had nothing to do all day! But I did sneak in an hour here and there while the twins were napping.
In 1999 my mother passed away and we moved to Rhode Island. It was a very difficult transition for me, but I continued with the pottery. In 2003 I registered my business, Rising Sun Earthworks, named in tribute to my Japanese mom who never gave up on me but never got to see the results of her encouragement of my artwork.
Pottery is the perfect medium for me, because I enjoy creating items that will be used and loved every day and be part of the lives of my customers.ck here to edit text.
up in Europe, I gained insight into Waldorf education where I learned
doll making and the art of felting. Even though learned to knit,
crochet and sew while I was young, I did not fall in love with creating
felted art and dolls until I wanted to make beautiful creations for my
Sharie Williamson is the Seamstress /Cobbler
behind Pitterpat. After her daughter ripped through one beautiful soft
sole shoe after another, she set out to find a durable soft sole shoe.
After months of searching – she found there was nothing that was both
soft and durable on the market, and decided to design her own. After
hundreds of shoes and many revisions she created the only durable soft
sole shoe on the market. She is proud her shoes are free of adhesives
and unhealthy toxins that are found in so many shoes today. She creates
her shoes from a combination of new, organic and up-cycled material to
create a look that is both unique and stylish for your little one's
Sharie resides in Bozeman, Montana, with her fabulous husband and two adorable daughters. When she is not sewing you will likely see her enjoying the outdoors with her two girls and knitting needles in hand.
