Moms Crochet Kitchen

The Holidays are sneaking up on us! Let this months featured shop help get your little elves ready.

This month we are featuring a unique crochet Work At Home Mom. Kelsey is the woman behind Mom's Crochet Kitchen and she is extremely talented!

Kelsey crochets with her own two hands so many beautiful things for others to enjoy. Even though she is the one who makes everything she gives credit to her mom for teaching her and for her grandmother for teaching her mom. The passion from this passed down talent and dying art is what keeps her going!

She says "I love the feel of the yarn in my hands and creating something that could keep me warm and comforted...I love to share my crochet with others because I think other people get that same warm, fuzzy feeling when they reach out and touch the stitches of crochet."

While we think everything she makes is amazing the WAHM table at the store will have elf hats and stockings.

Just look how cute these are. How can you resist?

        

 

Be sure to take a look around her website in case there is something else you need. Baby Booties? Hand Warmers? Slouchy Hat? Boot Cuffs? Kelsey loves what she does and you can see that in her work!

Candace the Doula

This month we are so excited to switch things up and offer a service to our local moms.

Let me introduce you to the sweet and lovely Candace. Candace the Doula is a DONA certified Doula in Meridian, Idaho. She has been helping moms through pregnancies since 2014.

For the month of September, You can take advantage of $50 off the package deal that is offered when you book Candace as your Doula for your pregnancy.

First off, you may be asking, what is a Doula? 

The word “doula” comes from the ancient Greek meaning “a woman who serves” and is now used to refer to a trained and experienced professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to the mother before, during and just after birth; or who provides emotional and practical support during the postpartum period.

When we asked Candace why she became a Doula she had this to say:

 I am passionate about giving non-judgemental support to any mom that wants help with her pregnancy and birth. Giving birth can be extremely emotionally and physically difficult for a mom and her partner. They are more likely to have better outcomes when they have the support of a trained Doula. I truly love being that person for them."

When it comes to having a baby we know how difficult it can be to trust somebody to guide you and your family through the magical roller coaster experience that pregnancy and child birth bring.

Candace was raised in a home with her mother as a Doula. She says that she was raised to " believe that our bodies are strong and that we should be confident in our ability to give birth."

Candace is a mom of 2 and she knew she wanted to become a Doula after she had "two difficult births of my own and seeing how much my husband and I could have both benefited from having a doula, I decided that I needed to be that person for others. I want help other families have a positive and safe experience, not just physically but emotionally as well. It is so important that mothers and babies to have a peaceful and gentle birth experience because it affects all aspects of family life."

Do you have questions about what to expect? Are you curious if a Doula could help you? Do you want to know more about the type of help Candace can offer you?

Saturday, September 24th from 11am-1pm you have the opportunity to Meet Candace the Doula.  Bring your questions and come down to the store. 

 

Be sure to browse Candace's website, look her up on Social Media or send her an email if you have any questions.

Rocka-B-Baby

 

 

Rocka-B-Baby is locally owned in Boise, Idaho by a WAHM, Rhoda Twist. She is crafty, creative and sews everything from bibdana bibs to wrap scrap bunnies to nursing pads and even full length bibs.

Rhoda has developed her own patterns and created heated nursing pads that have a patented pending. She strives to use organic cotton and swaddle on her products.

When asked what inspired her with her WAHM business she responded:

"My own boys inspired me! Jordan, Jaelin, and Bentley are my everyday inspiration and drive. My husband is my biggest supporter and my rock and I want to start a line of products that we can all be proud of. The ideas started when I saw a need in my own life for nursing pads that don't leak and can offer some relief with a warm/cool option to nursing mama's when nursing can be painful. So I decided I wanted to bring quality unique products to every mama"

Rhoda will be carrying two products at Pi Baby for the month of May. She will have her organic cotton single and double layer bibdana bibs as well as her wrap scrap bunnies.

Come see the variety of prints and colors she has to offer in store or request a custom order from her!

Shorties: Baby Wearing Jewelry.
