Wow...where to start? I first want to say Thank you to all my loyal customers, friends and family for supporting me in this crazy adventure that I have taken on. When I first started out in 2008 on Etsy I couldn't of dreamed that Kid-N-Around Creations would turn into what it is today. I thought it was just something to keep me busy, and a place where I could earn some extra spending money for a rainy day. Well as the time has gone by I have learned so much about every aspect of the handmade business. I have gone from selling a item here and there over the course of a month to selling items daily. Kid-N-Around Creations now offers wholesale, and I have also been involved in quite a few Co-op group buys. I am happy to announce that I am now a part of The Living Arts Congo. I feel very blessed to be part of a talented group of work at home moms, such as those at The Living Arts Congo.

I'm not sure how far I can take this little business of mine, but I do know that I am having a blast watching it grow.
