TCC: Moose Jaw! We have family there but we aren't super familiar with the city, so we get to explore but still get the coziness of a home when we stay
CS: Tell us a bit about yourself and your family.
TCC: I have 3 kids! 5, 4, and 1! My husband and I got married last year, and we've been together going on 7 years! We also have a German Shepard!
CS: Describe your creative style.
TCC: Random! I usually have my best ideas in the middle of our daily chaos!
CS: How did you get into crafting?
TCC: A couple local shops were closing up, and I couldn't find any clip I was in love in with for our daughter (our older two are boys, and nothing was pink enough for me 🙈). I decided to give it a go making one myself, and I really enjoyed!
CS: What was the first thing you ever made?
TCC: Soother clips! It took me a little to figure out how to get pendants onto things!
CS: What project/product are you most proud of?
TCC: Handy Holders! I never imagined they would become as popular for me as they have! It's blown me away with the demand for them and I'm so excited to hear and see how much people love them!
CS: What does your current work space look like?
TCC: Total mess! Its chaos, but I call it organized chaos, because I know where everything is! It drives my husband crazy!
CS: What does your dream work space look like?
TCC: I'd love for a room with organizer bins along the walls with beads! Another wall filled with pendants!
CS: How do you balance work and home life?
TCC: Working from home is super hard with kids! I get most of my work done when the older two are at school, and the youngest is asleep. I'm able to work well in the evenings too after my daughter has gone down for the night!
CS: Where do you see your business going in the next five years?
TCC: I'm super hopeful in this being a full time gig for me! I hope that in 5 years, I'm selling consistently in 10 stores (I'm in 2 right now!).
CS: What advice would you give to someone looking to start their own small business?
TCC: Find your tribe!! There are so many amazing people to help and support you, let them! It's amazing to have a group to bounce ideas with, to give honest feedback!
CS: What do you love most about Chomp?
TCC: The community! It's so great to have such a large group of people that support and genuine root for one another!
CS: What would you like to see Chomp carry in the future?
TCC: Different packaging options!
