About

Mom of Two Boys Turns Baking into Business!

Let me take a moment to tell you how this all came about. I would pass the time with my kids by baking on Sunday afternoons. It's one of our little rituals that I love! I was spending so much time cooking and baking in the kitchen with my son that I needed something to keep his clothes clean. His first apron was made from leftover fabric and soon I was making them as birthday gifts. When friends started asking me if I could make aprons for their other children, nieces, nephews, etc. this business idea was born!

This started a few years ago. Now my boys are both school age, in school all day five days a week. I can now spend the time on a la Apron that it deserves and help contribute to our family's bank account.

I spend about three mornings a week fulfilling orders, promoting the shop, creating new aprons and tending to all other business that a la Apron creates. The other two free days are dedicated to the house, volunteering at the kids' school and running errands. I try to squeeze in some exercise and "me" time in there, too.

Hope you have enjoyed my story. I look forward to creating happy memories in your kitchen!

    Growing up in California, I learned how to sew at an early age from a family friend. I'm still sewing on the same machine today! I love being creative and seeing something go from a bolt of fabric to finished product. It's so rewarding!
