About

It started with a bunny and a pea...

2010 was a special year for me as it heralded the long awaited arrival of my daughter to the joy of my little family, and also was the beginning of Babamoon.

I had been Knitting and Crocheting for a number of years at that stage, excited by the idea of hand creating the things my children would wear and play with as they grew up.

I have always been artistic, mostly my talents have been honed in the fine arts during childhood and my college days but I enjoyed crafting and textile arts also.
In those days I imagined that I would one day become a professional artist and tried for many years to establish my art by hand creating animal portraits and landscapes whilst doing a number of day jobs for a living, but it wasn't something that worked out as planned. Being new to the world of self employment after being an employee was not something i was prepared for and didn't understand well enough to market and grow what I had back then.

After meeting my husband and moving in together, I took up an interest in amateur photography which propelled forward after having my son (taking a million pictures of him growing up as moms do!)
Once I had learned and mastered some new skills on my DSLR and Photoshop I began to integrate my fine art skills to my images and stumbled across Etsy which gave me the opportunity to learn what it meant to be my own boss and I finally learned slowly about where I had gone wrong before.

I created my first Etsy shop known as moonangelnay.etsy.com for my photography, specialising Fine Art Photographic images. I was very much in love with Etsy and loved that it had given me the freedom to explore my artistic crafts, easily learn how to run a business and sell my creations, for which the enthusiasm spilled over into my daily life. It was during this period that I had started to pick up my knit and crochet needles a lot more as I relaxed into my new life.

I used to love buying knitting books and patterns as my son grew, and had never really considered writing my own despite my abilities improving and advancing, but whilst waiting for my daughter's birth, (and whilst Etsy was just there every day giving me more reason to feel passionate about creating!) the ideas just started to come naturally to me and I then began creating my first blanket, mittens and hat designs ready for when she arrived.

When the big day came of course I fell in love all over again! She's a wonderful little girl and I found myself in awe of her, inspired more than ever to create more things. My son started to then give his own input and kept telling me with his bossy toddler-self to make more animals since he loves them! So of course I made the effort to do so and made the first of my animal hats, the Rainbow Bunny Hat!
I noticed more than any of my other creations, friends and family members really took a liking to this particular style, keeping it simple and making sure the materials were soft and of higher quality than I was used to, and so using the same materials I created my first accessory (my angel wings) and being quite anxious to try making swaddler of some kind I decided upon making a peapod cocoon. It soon occurred to me that passion and patience never waned with this and I contemplated actually doing it for a living.

I then opened up my second shop Babamoon and included my bunny hat, wings and peapod creations online amongst a few other designs. I found myself making my first sale within a month! It ended up being a faster growing business than my photography store which I learned very quickly had to take a back seat whilst more of my handmade creations manifested and more sales were made, so for the moment I am not selling my photography art but 5 years down the line Babamoon is now thriving. Being so busy everything is now on a made to order basis.

I couldn't be more pleased with the progress I've made. I owe huge credit to my supportive family for helping put up with my work loads, my overspilling yarn hoard ( I love yarn! it has it's own space at home now lol!), my husband for regularly assisting with shipping and for my children forever inspiring me. My son especially with his crazy but cool suggestions and also for my daughters modelling in the majority of listings throughout my store, fast becoming known for my original 'blue stripe bunny hat design' picture! My husbands constant support and praise gets me through all the difficult and busy times and my kids input makes me consider Babamoon a little family affair. I couldn't be more proud of the achievements that have been brought forth our way with magazine and blog appearances, Etsy Press Kits and more. We have been very humbled by the interest and experiences.

I am hoping to offer much more with Babamoon as a brand and excited about it's future!

Frequently asked questions

Are your items ready to ship? Can I change/cancel my order?

Ready to Ship? - No. All of my items are made to order unless stated otherwise and subject to the processing time stated in the shipping and policies tab and your shopping cart prior to payment.

Changes - As my items are made to order they are customisable so changes to size/colours can be made within 2 days

Cancellations - Under the current processing schedule customers MUST give 2 days notice for cancellations before supplies are ordered/prepared in advance for item completion and shipment when due.
After the 2 day cancellation window, cancel requests will NOT be accepted and will be subject to my after shipment policy. Customers are responsible for acknowledging the listing titles/descriptions and my policies before ordering.

Do you ship worldwide?

Yes I ship all over the world :)

Do you offer a rush service?

I can offer "rush processing" to make your items sooner than the original processing time stated in store.

Please note that items of a quantity greater than 2 will take longer to complete as they would do under the normal processing schedule.

During busy times please expect that orders will also take longer to complete on the rush schedule due to their being an increased number in overall orders.

Rush processing depending on the order queue length typically takes 1 business day (longer for 2+ items)

If rush processing is required you may select the option from the shipping upgrade menu during checkout in your shopping cart.

Do you offer tracked delivery?

•Standard shipping is the default shipping option for all orders
•There is NO tracking with standard delivery

If it is not purchased with an order there will be no code available to monitor items in transit.

If you require tracking, you will need to select the tracked delivery upgrade from the shipping upgrades menu in your cart before processing your payment.

If you process your order before doing this then please get in touch with me so we can arrange to get tracking for your order separately.

Busy periods (Seasonal)

During peak periods and holiday seasons (Aug-Apr) the processing schedule may be longer than estimated due to increased quantities of orders and message volume. I always work as swiftly as I can to try and get everyone's orders out asap.

Please be aware that if an order hasn't been marked as shipped and a shipment notification hasn't been received, your order is NOT ready to ship just yet. I cannot offer status updates due to an increased workload during these periods where completing orders takes a priority.

Messages are usually answered in a couple of hours, however during busy periods it may take up to 48 hours to reach and answer messages.
