      Happy 12th Anniversary Baby Wisp®!

      Happy 12th Anniversary Baby Wisp®!

      We are so happy to celebrate our 12th year!

      Baby Wisp® has turned 12!  My little crafty booth at an Edmonton Farmer's Market on Saturdays during my first maternity leave turned into a career - there was no laying out a plan for this! I just went for it and thanks to customers who like my designs and those who continue to support small shops - BABY WISP IS STILL ALIVE!!!! THANK YOU!!!!

      Reflections I Do Once a Year

      Don't we all reflect on a "past life" when you look back 12 years?  I'm always shocked that I'm still in business when this anniversary comes along.  Did I say that outloud? LOL! Should I be saying something more inspirational and "#bossmom"-ish ?  This year in particular, when my sales in March and April were about 20% of what they were in 2019 - THANKS COVID - , I really wondered if I would make it.  And then a miracle happened in May and June - people started finding ways to support small shops and my ETSY sales soared.  They are the highest they have ever been.  I'm almost at 10,000 sales (see screenshot).

       Some Ugly...

      Who wants to hear all the good rainbow stuff all the time.  There has been some downs.  I pretty much dropped out of Amazon and gave up. I couldn't keep up with all the trademark infringement and copycats (Knock offs from overseas sellers who are not employing people in Canada and the USA) .... and unrealistic seller expectations.  That type of marketplace (in my own experience, maybe some other businesses loved it. I know my first year was good!) is too demanding. I have had the meanest customer interactions on Amazon than I have not had on any other platform. Including the rudest reviews and messages I have ever ever received.  I know I'm not supposed to take that stuff personally BUT...after 12 years, I'm actually very picky now about my shop and I can run dis without the negative energy !!!   Am I right?  If you have been running a shop 12 years and you can't make a decision to make yourself happier day to day, then what's the point and where are you going with this?  (That's what I asked myself).

      Fun Times - What's changed - HELP FROM EMILY AND THALI

      I'm having so much fun this year launching new designs and color palettes, spending my time in areas I enjoy, continuing to grow my wholesale... and most delightful - due to the two lovely ladies that are working for me, I get to hand off so much work!   Emily returned from maternity leave this summer (and is handling much of my operational activities while Thali is working 3X a week getting every single order out the door.  This has given me time to work on some other side hustle activities I have started up ;).  yay!!!!

      Anniversary - the Inspo

      My daughter was the inspiration - the life change of becoming a mom, changed my life in so many ways.  I only have the same pictures I post every year because I can't go back in time and take more!  Sorry for those that have seen this one of my daughter and I in front of the booth in 2008.  It is extra funny to me this year because she recently turned 13.  Now, this is her 'teen' facial expression all the time.  I wish she would agree to a side by side "12 years later photo" standing on a table , those re-creation photos but she said NO.  HAHAHAA!!!  I know anyone with a teen knows what I'm talking about!!  I'm still smothering her with love whether she likes it or not!!! :)

      12 years brought me more ups and downs in the business, more wrinkles, more adventure, more ideas, more designs, more technology and social media learning, and if you are reading this - MORE SUPPORT.   You are reading this because you are interested in either the products, the shop, the brand or the journey of a businesswoman in motherhood and

      You.
