Now let's discover That's A Wrap Baby
What is the first creative memory you have?
My first creative endeavor as child was writing. I loved to create crazy stories. I remember making a book of stories for my mom as a gift one time. I'm pretty sure she still has it!
What or whom began your creative journey on Etsy?
I started making and selling wraps on Ebay, before there was an Etsy. I was so excited when I discovered such a comfortable and cute way to wear my baby that I just had to share it! When I wanted to step up my business a bit, Etsy was the natural step.
How did you come up with your shop name?
My business began with just the wrap style baby carriers - That's A Wrap! was just a cutesy name I came up with on a whim. I guess it just stuck!
Describe what creations you have in your shop
My business has really grown in the past few months and morphed in to a "Natural Family" boutique of sorts. I make wrap style and mei tai baby carriers, wool and wood teething toys, amber teething necklaces and beeswax wood polish. And you can usually count on a few other items thrown in the mix! I love trying out new mediums, so you can never be too sure what you might find.
What inspires you?
Definitely my children. There are five of them! They are great and they love to see me create and help me come up with new ideas.
What do you listen to or watch while creating?
Usually kids playing. If I really need time to work, my husband will take the kids out to the park or something - then I relish the silence!
Please share a favorite recipe
My youngest daughter turned two today and we had people over for a cookout. The bean salad I made was a hit, so it's the perfect recipe to share here!
1 can black beans
1 can garbanzo beans
1 can kidney beans
3/4 C. each - apple cider vinegar, sugar, and olive oil
3/4 t dry mustard
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 t basil
Drain and rinse the beans, put in a bowl.
In a separate bowl, mix the dressing. Pour dressing over the beans and toss. Chill salad for an hour before serving.
Where else can we find you?
