The Birth of Sassy Smidgens
Hi I'm Vanessa. Thanks for stopping by.
Sassy Smidgens originally came about from the inspiration I received while being pregnant with my daughter Eva. I started out making the things I wanted to see while creating my baby shower registry. Having been sewing since the age of 8, this excited a passion within me that I wanted to share with others. Now Sassy Smidgens has grown into so much more.
"Be the change you wish to see"
This quote is pretty famous, although not from Gandhi as many people believe, and it has inspired me to apply this to my life and business.
I always thought being a parent was an amazing thing but I didn't fully know until I was able to become on myself. Having PCOS this was an obstacle, which is why I feel so strongly about other parents (of all kind) being able to celebrate their parenthood as much as I have.
So, here at Sassy Smidgens I create infant and toddler clothing bearing sentiments for heterosexual couples, Christian couples, LGBT couples and their family in both Spanish and English. If you are of another native tongue and would like a particular sentiment in that language please feel free to contact me.
For many people this is controversial, but my Christian background and faith in what is good compels me to love my neighbor and not judge him or her for whoever they chose to live his or her life (I am not implying being gay is a choice), but instead celebrate with them in the gift that God has given them.
