Barb Woodward's Profile

About

I can't even tell you the number of times I've had people say, "you should make more of those and sell them..." So I guess this all started 10+ years ago as I began exploring my creativity when making things for myself or as gifts for other people.

I also can't even tell you the number of times my husband and I have seen empty shop windows with "for sale" signs on them and dreamt and talked about opening a boutique of some sort.

Now (thanks to Etsy!) I get to do both! And I've been having so much fun. I started selling at a few craft fairs in 2010 and am excited for this new avenue. I am a mom of three young kids and somehow I find the time to make this all work--because I love it!

My products center mostly around what interests me (did I say I was a mom of 3 kids?). I like things to be functional, but also fashionable and fun. I love searching fabric stores for fabrics and letting my imagination go wild. I tend to not use patterns and I like to use bold colors or fabrics where appropriate.

So what does Babala mean? Well, in a previous chapter of my life, I traveled quite a bit. I taught English in China where I was called Babala instead of Barbara. It isn't a true Chinese name (it's more of a transliteration), but I love it all the same. So, nice to meet you...I'm Babala...welcome to my shop!
