In Case You're Wondering

Many of you, especially our closest friends and family, know that 2 Little Lovelies is a 2 person (mamas being those two people) business. And of course we work from home. I'm trying to imagine it differently, but for now this is how we work...

We try and wake up before our 17 month old (Kat's) and 21 month old (Amber's) get up so we have time in silence to organize our orders and other stuff for the day. If we're not so lucky and our babes get up way before we'd like them to, no silent organizing time for us. Move on to breakfast.

After feeding the kids and hopefully ourselves, it's back to work. Or maybe a shower. Checking emails, talking with clients, coming up with new designs. This is if we don't have play dates, lunches, or errands to run. If that's the case scratch all the above. No work will get done until Daddy comes home or baby goes to sleep.

Needless to say, we have small amounts of free time during the day and not all of it can be spent on work. I mean, I'd like to brush my teeth and shaved legs would be nice. So, when we have everyone demanding an order here and an order there (which we are extremely excited about!), please know this: We do not have hired staff to sit around and sew for us. We do not have unlimited amounts of stock lying around (due to not having hired staff). We are not a manufacturing company cranking out perfect copies of all of our products. We simply are two moms on a mission to create a business of unique and fresh clothing and accessories for little ones. Making one lovely handmade item at a time.

We love what we do and we love everyone who has been behind us from the beginning. Kathryn and I work very hard to create one of a kind, quality items for you to enjoy. And we don't even mind working late into the night (sometimes). Just keep in mind that your order is most likely to be made in a home office/studio strewn with cheerios and sippy cups and not in a Wal-Mart-esque manufacturing plant. Keep the orders coming, we love being busy!
