My life changed when my son was born four years ago. Maybe for the best, who knows. I've slowed down, stopped working, moved to a small city and started being a mum full time. Hard work! I've always like creating things, making things, reusing things but never had the time to actually sit down and get all the ideas in my head to pop out. Now that I am at home full time, I get to (and need to!) express my creativity, it has become my secret garden, my guarantee of sanity. I've always been a strong believer in the fact that something good always comes out from events in life. it took me a while to figure out what good it was going to be for me to be a stay at home mum, without an occupation or a salary, but I found it, and I'm happy with it for now.

My life changed when my son was born four years ago. Maybe for the best, who knows. I've slowed down, stopped working, moved to a small city and started being a mum full time. Hard work! I've always like creating things, making things, reusing things but never had the time to actually sit down and get all the ideas in my head to pop out. Now that I am at home full time, I get to (and need to!) express my creativity, it has become my secret garden, my guarantee of sanity. I've always been a strong believer in the fact that something good always comes out from events in life. it took me a while to figure out what good it was going to be for me to be a stay at home mum, without an occupation or a salary, but I found it, and I'm happy with it for now.
I have designed and made all the clothes for sale. The designs are inspired by fashion and my direct environment ( I have to confess, I am a bit of a bird watcher...). We practice ECing with our son (natural infant hygiene) and I designed some pants especially for that purpose (they can also used as potty training pants).
I like to limit the amount of waste produced in our household, and that goes for what is sold in this shop: I mainly use pre-loved clothes and fabric remnants, and each garment is pretty much a one of a kind.
The result is kids' clothes with an edge: definitely unique, resolutely special and definitively different!
I also love trying my hand at anything, so the range on offer in my shop is ever expanding and pretty eclectic!
