Giveaway Friday: Silly Cheeks Baby Boutique

I recently came across this amazing and fabulous shop called Silly Cheeks, and I can't begin to tell you how much I wanted to have a little girl after seeing her beautiful hair accessories, blankets and burp cloths and nursing covers....I am in LOVE.....





Everything she has is so bright and fun....and fantastic....I was lucky enough to interview Ginger and get her ideas on her Craft, business and being a mom!


When did you start crafting and why?

I hosted a baby shower for my best friend at the end of June. She received several gift baskets of really adorable monogrammed items and we all went crazy over them! As we inspected the items more closely, she and I exchanged a knowing look and said, yes, this is something I should do. I am a real estate agent and new Mom and really needed something that I could balance better with staying home with my child. This is a perfect fit.


What do you love most about your craft?

That I continually surprise myself. Shock is probably a better word. I literally bought a sewing machine and supplies just two months ago and have managed to bring many of my ideas to fruition. I have always considered myself to be more of an analytical person. I am finding that I have this creative side that I never knew was there. I feel like I am finding my true self through this process.


What is your favorite item that you have available right now?

My Butterfly Garden Gift Basket. I absolutely love the fabric and each item can be personalized with a monogram. It's a great shower gift! It is important to me to create items that are not only beautiful, but functional as well. The Butterfly Garden Baby Blanket / Playmat that I am offering as a giveaway is one of the items included in this gift basket.



Do you have any exciting plans for your shop in the near future?

Yes! I can't wait to add items for baby boys! After all, that is what I have. I plan to add gift baskets in other prints and bodysuits with fun appliques!


What do you find the most exciting and rewarding part of being a mom?

Hands down, watching him hit milestone after milestone. Any Mom knows that with each of these milestones, come many sleepless nights and a ton of frustration. Then he figures out a new skill and the look of satisfaction on his face is priceless! This sweet child of mine blows me away with his beauty, his intelligence, his sense of humor, and, of course, his wicked temper! It's an amazing adventure.



What advice would you give to other moms who may be thinking of getting into crafting and perhaps wanting to sell online?

Understand that running an online business is more than creating the items and posting them online. You will need to learn how to take and edit beautiful photos and promote your business through blogs and social networking sites. I am working hard to develop these invaluable skills. The good news is, there is a plethora of information out there to help a newbie along. Just do it! You just might find your passion, and I truly believe that with passion comes success.
