WAHM Day 1 – Green Belle Shoppe

Welcome to our 10 day long spotlight on all our great WAHM’s. Here at Top to Bottom Baby Boutique we pride ourselves on working with WAHM’s and helping them to spread the love for their products. What better way to spread the love than to give something away! We’re also going to have a 5% discount on each of our WAHM products through October 10th. (no code necessary)
Meet our first WAHM run business:

The Mom behind it all: Michelle Cook
Tell us about yourself: “I've been crocheting/x-stitch since I was about 7 and fell in love with yarn ever since. My mom taught me how to hand crochet a single chain when I was 7 and I would make yards and yards of single chains.  Then my step-mom would take me and my sister and step sisters out about 2-3 times a month to each get a skein of yarn or some other craft and she really taught me the stitches then and I started making blankets, pot holders...and then I made barbie dresses!  So much fun
I got into quilting imageafter working at a craft store when I was going to college and then fell in love with fabric.  When I started having babies it was too hard to use the sewing machine and took too long to finish a quilt (I still have about 5-7 unfinished quilts in my attic/craft space) so I started making hand bags.  I made so many my wonderful husband said...hey, why don't you sell those.  So...I found Etsy through my cousin who makes the cutest handbags (29 cherryblossoms by melanie) and started there.  Well...once again I had to put my sewing machine up as my youngest baby was trying to play with it and it was clogging up our dining room table:).  So I got my crochet hooks back out and started on that.  I ran across dryer balls on Etsy and saw that there wasn't a huge market yet (January of last year) and made a couple...and they sold right away (so exciting). 
I am excited to offer people a greener option and I am glad to rid myself of dryer sheets as well!  I am currently working on more baby blankets and use cotton and wool primarily in all my products as I am trying to be as green as possible.  I have 3 baby blankets in the works for x-mas presents as a special order and I am also working on making more scarfs and cowls out of wool!  I would like to expand a bit, add a few more retailers...and continue to craft and come up with new and pretty creations.“

My mom is a great listener, If I'm having a bad day I just call her and her love always makes me feel better. Even at 37 I still need my mom.

My husband is in the Military and the thought of not living near my mom was hard to deal with at first, but in the 5 years I have been gone she has been super supportive and has always been there for me. I had to do our last two moves without my husband and my mom was the first to volunteer to come and help! We move again in December and even though my husband will be around this time she is coming out to help. I am so grateful for her help. Moving several states away with 2 cats and a two year old while 6 mos pregnant might not be the the easiest, but having my mom there is going to make it so much easier. I love my momma!

We may not live close to each other, but my mom is always only a phone call away. We talk almost everyday and she is a great sounding-board when I have a new idea or need to vent. She is also an incredible reference when I need help in the kitchen or with a craft project!

Thanks to the USAF we're station pretty far from home. My mother and I make sure that we call and talk to each other at least once a day. It helps us stay really connected and is a vital part of our relationship. We bounce ideas off of each other, suggest new products to each other, offer each other advice. I don't know what I would do without those phone calls.

we are a military family so we don't live close to my mom. she is my best friend and it always breaks my heart when a visit is coming to an end. we talk about everything and she is the perfect sounding board when i need someone to help me figure something out when my hubby is away. i love that cell phones, the internet and skype put us closer together...if only for a few moments!

My mom watches my 18-month-old daughter once a week so that I can work a little bit on the side to help support our family. I made the decision last year to be at home with my daughter but financially, my husband and I needed a little more. My mom stepped in without hesitation and has been such a wonderful support and source of love for her favorite (and only...for 4 more months!!) granddaughter and to all of us. She's the best!

My mom is always thinking of me when she is out and about shopping. She is constantly picking up little things here or there for me that she know I would like- a new tee or something for our kitchen, or a book or an outfit for my son! She is a great friend and such a thoughtful mom! <3

Things are much better and she tries very hard to be a great grandma! My girls love her to death. THis is all I ever asked for, this is what she does for me! She loves my kids and is there for us!
