There is a saying “if you love what you do, you don’t work a day in your life.” Something that has always played in the back of my head as I navigated my way through the working world. I have been a Teacher, a School Counselor/case manger, and a Digital Marketing Director for a restaurant chain. Each role gave me a different purpose and meaning, and I learned a lot about myself and the world. I always had my business going on the side, and operated it in my “free time.” Flying by the seat of my pants, doing hardly any marketing and hoping that people would find my website. Miraculously people found my hangers, mostly by word of mouth, and my business grew. A lot of clients used the baby hangers as gifts, and started to ask if I had any other baby products. After having three boys of my own I knew what my missing piece of my business was… Swaddle Blankets.
Where the love comes in….
My most important job ever has been being a mom. I love being a mom, and yet it is the hardest job I have ever had! However, my boys have inspired my swaddle blanket line. Walking into any department store (exceptions do exist) the boy’s clothes section is much smaller and not as inspiring as the girls section. There is a gap in the market for fun/nostalgic/classic boy prints, and even girl prints for that matter. Swaddle blankets are something I ALWAYS carry with me. Swaddling was their purpose for such a short time (my boys weren’t big into swaddling after 2 months. They are a great stroller blanket, play mat, nursing cover, changing pad (in a bind), nap blanket, and my toddler still uses them as a blanket.
Three Little Anchors is starting with a small inventory, but we have a lot of exciting things in the works. I love the muslin fabrics, but we are exploring other knit fabrics that are also just as versatile and allows for different prints. My boys are my passion, and this passion is being invested into this business. When buying a baby gift it is nice to know the recipient will get more than a few months use out of it. That is why our baby hanger line has expanded to swaddle blankets. We appreciate you taking the time to learn about us and our vision. We have a lot of exciting projects in the works, and ensure everything is created with love! Motherhood is an amazing and tough journey, we all need to be anchored sometimes! I have three little anchors that have kept me grounded, humble, and inspired.
