Featured Etsy Designer -- Nicole of Sweet Things!

Oh, sweet things. We love sweet things. Ok, you get the point but we just can't stop droolin' over this Etsy Shop! Can you guess the name? Sweet Things! We just can't get enough of the oh-so-sweet goodies that fill this sweet HANDmade shop. And well, the designer of Sweet Things, Nicole is just a doll! Read on to get to know her and all about this charming little shop we love.

{What's in the name? Sweet Things. What inspired it?} 

I lost my job when I was out on disability during my pregnancy with my now 2 year old little girl. I already had an 8 month old at home and with another on the way I decided to try my hand at crafting. I started with pillowcase dresses and it has taken off from there.

{Tell us a little bit about you & what inspired the biz.}

Hi my name is Nicole and I am the owner and creator of SWEET Things 
(also known as SWEET Things kids). 

I am a wife. Even with a full-time job and being a full-time student, my amazing hubby Jeff always supports my dreams. I am so thankful he is a part of my life. 
I am a mom. My two little girls are my inspiration. Little R, age 3, is my sweet tomboy. She teaches me how to make an alien or dinosaur cute and girly. Little N, age 2, loves everything pink and sparkly. I am happy to report that she walks better in heals at age 2 then I ever will.

I am a lover. I LOVE all thins Harry potter, Cold Stone, Miami Dolphins football and an EXTRA large cup of coffee once, and sometimes twice, a day.

I am a designer. It took me a long time to call myself that. I love thinking of a new creation and then bringing it to life. I take a lot of pride in making quality handcrafted designs that won’t break the bank. My favorite part of my job is getting customer comments like...

“Amazing!!! It's even prettier in person! Everything fits perfect. And it's sooo soft! My 3 year old won’t take it off! Thank you so much!”

It makes me feel great to know that I can make a child’s SWEET dreams come true.

{What is your favorite item from your shop you just LOVE creating?}

I love our NEW Cinderella costume. I made it for my little girl, who is a true princess and it turned out perfect.

{When did you begin to sew? What is the earliest memory of sewing?}

I started sewing pretty late in my life. My mom gave me one lesson at the age of 26 and I was off and running. I spent lots of time creating new things and figuring it out on my own.

{What is up next for the company?}

We have a lot of great new items coming out. Some sweet new tutus and super cute pajama pants for the entire family. My husband graduated from college in February so I will have more time to create some fun new items.

Getting ready for Halloween? Sweet Things is in full costume mode right now! Make sure you check out their shop not just for the perfect littles wardrobe but they have some of the cutest HANDmade costumes! We are just dying over this Jessie inspired combo!
