Meet the Maker: Organic Baby Goods

Welcome to another...

Meet the Maker Monday!

Today we are introducing Ann Marie Johnson - owners of Organic Baby Goods! You can find her goodies here!


Chomp Supply: What's your favourite food? Why?
Ann Marie: Pasta. Because my husband isn't a big fan of pasta so it always feels like a special treat when I eat it.
CS: What's your favourite vacation spot? Why?
A: The pacific ocean because it always calms me.
CS: Tell us a bit about yourself and your family.
A: I'm married with two little boys. My husband is in the Military and we have been friends since high school. My boys are 3 and 14 months and keep me very busy!
CS: Describe your creative style.
A: I like to put things together on the fly and see how they look. I'm not great at planning out a design. Once I have it in front of me I will tweak it until it is just right.
CS: How did you get into crafting?
A: My mom is an avid quilter and crafter so I grew up crafting. Even though we may have different styles, and are better at different things, it is something we can always come together on.
CS: What was the first thing you ever made?
A: A quilt of course! It isn't my favorite thing to do but it is the first crafting project I can remember. It took me a few days but my dad still has it.
CS: What project/product are you most proud of?
A: My etsy site. I've put a lot of hard work and thought into making it something to be proud of.
CS: What does your current work space look like?
A: My husband does woodworking as a hobby and he made me a beautiful sewing/craft table. It's perfect and I love it.
CS: What does your dream work space look like?
A: My sewing/craft table overlooking the ocean.
CS: How do you balance work and home life?
A: I try and do most of my work at nap time or after the kids go to sleep.
CS: Where do you see your business going in the next five years?
A: I hope it continues to grow and I can continue to come up with new, innovative ideas.
CS: What advice would you give to someone looking to start their own small business?
A: Don't give up!
CS: What do you love most about Chomp?
A: Great color selection, with safe, natural beads.
CS: What would you like to see Chomp carry in the future?
A: Stroller clips
