Shop name: Handmade Whimzy

What do you make and sell?

I sell full and half aprons, beaded and ribbon bookmarks, aromatherapy eye pillows, scented sachets and more!

Do you have a blog, facebook page, twitter account or another shop?

Where do you shop most for "back to school" items?

I have 1 boy so I mostly just shop at Target.

What do you like the most now that your kids are back to school?

It’s easier to set my schedule because I have to work around school drop off and pick up.

What are you planning to do with your free time?


Any advice to other moms who just started sending their kids to school for the first time?

It’s ok to sit in the school parking lot for hours and cry if you need to. Don’t worry about it. I cried for 2 hours in the school parking lot when my son started preschool and he only went for 3 hours 2 times per week.

What’s your giveaway item?

A set of 3 mini ribbon bookmarks!
