Meet my sister

Meet my sister Judy-
I am a K-2 teacher and mom to three who recently moved to Vermont with my youngest daughter after dreaming about it my entire life. My passion is knitting and crocheting, which I have been doing since I was 8. I have been in business for about 7 years now and have owned four different Etsy shops during that time. I now have two shops, Prop Shop, where I sell hand knit and crocheted newborn photography props and prop patterns and Cuddle Me Knits, where I sell hand knits for women as well as patterns, knitting needles and yarn.

The product I am most excited about right now is my knit boot cuffs which I sell in my Etsy shop. I have sold more boot cuffs than any other product I have ever offered online. Boot cuffs are 6" inch high, chunky knit, ribbed "tubes" that are worn on the calves near the top of your boots. They are great for keeping your legs warm, filling that annoying gap between your boot and your leg, and they make a cute fashion statement. I use only chunky lambswool blend yarn and they are available in 8 different colors.

As far as trying to balance family, my full-time teaching job and running two online businesses, I find it to be quite the challenge. I decided to hire the services of two knitters this year to help keep up with the demand. It helps a lot that I LOVE what I do but someday I hope to be able to concentrate solely on making a living from knitting.

Meet my cousin Jessica:

Owner of ZOOBLE

Your Place To Buy Fun Unique Handmade Toys! Come and enjoy the color and texture of my shop and be a kid again! Zooble is a family run company in Vermont. We make one of a kind unique Toys and handmade totes.

Tell us a little about yourself:
I'm a 30 year old "stay at home" mother of two, living in the beautiful green mountains of Vermont. I am more then obsessed with crafting and enjoy learning new things. I try and live my life as colorfully as I can.

How long have you been in business? 
My etsy store has been open since 2010, but I have been crafting and selling my creations for years either in local shops or street fairs.

What's the product that you are most excited about in your shop right now? Tell us about it.
I am really in love with my Bali Baskets. They are so bright and colorful and kids love them. They are made from rope that is wrapped with batik fabric and woven into its self to create a flexible bowl or basket that can stand up to rough kid play.  Its one of my daughters favorite toys.

How does the balance of family and work play out for you?

I love having my shop, It gives me the ability to stay at home with my kids and do what I love.  I work when I have the free time and keep a balance with my family. Christmas time gets a bit crazy but I am lucky to have amazing parents who help me with my orders. I like to call them my little elves:)

We spent the day at Hathaway farm finding our way through Vermont's largest corn maze. It was much harder than I expected, it took us 3 hours to complete.
