Guest Blogger --- Coffee Date --- A Convo With Sweet Harper -- plus a GIVEAWAY!



Text, Tracy Corcoran, Owner/Designer of Sweet Harper

{Non-fat vanilla latte.} Sweet Harper was developed after one long day of shopping…I spent the day strolling on Grand Avenue in St. Paul, Minnesota with a friend. My goal was to find some cute hair accessories for my Sweet Girl. She was 10 months old and her hair was just starting to grow. Despite the girlie clothing, she would inevitably get called a boy…been there? I decided to try to make some on my own, and so evolved Sweet Harper.

Currently, I am taking a break from teaching full day Kindergarten to stay at home with my kids. So, yes I do already have a full time job, and my most important clients are 1 & 3! Sweet Harper has become a great way for me to work without leaving my home. The best part is, I am having so much fun! I am still trying to find a balance though. Most days I get up with my kids, and the morning is time with them. During their nap/quiet time, I usually try to respond to e-mails and work on my blog. Bedtime is when I really get working! Starting about 9pm I will get start making new clips and I usually call it a night about 2am. I am already a night owl, so late nights don’t bother me. Early mornings…now that’s another story! I am definitely fueled by caffeine, which I hate because I never used to be that way, but such is the life of a busy mom. I am always searching for time savers, and one of the best has been Google Calendar. My family has three calendar’s between myself and my husband, and Sweet Harper. It’s nice because my husband and I always have our calendars with us (on the computer and phones) so making plans is much easier. Google calendar is one timesaver our family uses a lot!

..... the space where it all begins.....

I am so happy that staying home with my kids has led me to begin Sweet Harper. I really feel like I have it all right now, being at home with my kids and working from home with Sweet Harper. The best part about Sweet Harper is when I get to see pictures of Sweet Girls wearing Sweet Harper! I also love hearing from fans about what their fave products are, and what they would like to see more of.
