Tiny Nibblers Chewelry: I make a really good chicken parmesan that I only make about 4 times a year because it is so labor intensive but I love it because I am all about delicious comfort food.
CS: What's your favourite vacation spot? Why?
TNC: There is a small Amish town only a couple hours from our house that I love to go to. I love the hospitality and the tight knit community. Time seems to slow down a bit when we visit.
CS: Tell us a bit about yourself and your family.
TNC: I married my husband is 2015 and we had our daughter in 2018. We are a farming family that produces wheat, corn and spat beans. My husband is also a mechanic and a short run truck driver. I work part time at a friends trucking company in the office as well as run my small business.
CS: Describe your creative style.
TNC: I love softer matching colors although I like to get outside of my comfort zone at time and make something outside of the box.
CS: How did you get into crafting?
TNC: My mom has always been a crafter and I grew up helping her.
CS: What was the first thing you ever made?
TNC: To be honest, I am not sure.
CS: What project/product are you most proud of?
TNC: I recently made a cow teether that went crazy when I posted it on my Facebook page. Being part of a farming community it was a big hit!
CS: What does your current work space look like?
TNC: We live in a very old farmhouse and the is a downstairs bedroom (if you can call it that) I am converting into my office. It’s only about a 9’x9’ room so it’s not much but it works. I have my grandmas old kitchen table in there for my desk currently.
CS: What does your dream work space look like?
TNC: A real desk and computer I can work on and then a big crafting table and lot of organization!
CS: How do you balance work and home life?
TNC: It gets difficult at times but I am a night owl so I do a lot of work after my husband and daughter go to bed.
CS: Where do you see your business going in the next five years?
TNC: I would like to have a website, be in a couple local shops as well as become a wholesaler (dreaming big though!).
CS: What advice would you give to someone looking to start their own small business?
TNC: Just do it! I have only been in business about 12 weeks, but it has already become bigger than I could have imagined!
CS: What do you love most about Chomp?
TNC: The options! Chomp carries so much!
CS: What would you like to see Chomp carry in the future?
