Meet Amanda from Desert Baby

 

Amanda Kennedy is the mom behind the handmade goodness at Desert Baby on Etsy. She is the mom of two and sews unique, handmade creations just for you. Here is more about her from her Etsy store …

When I was around 6 years old, my love of handmade officially began. I had learned how to braid ribbons together and create headbands and was determined to sell them for profit. I would sit on the corner of my street and wait for a buyer. Oh how I wish Etsy was around back then! I continued to craft throughout my school years and studied fashion design in college.

My friends and family members eventually started families and I was determined to not bring a "duplicate" gift. I wanted to bring something that everyone would want and "Ooh and ahh" over. That is really how Desert Baby began. Something as simple as handmade burp cloths jump started my shop.

I finally had my own lil' one to sew for and I was frustrated at the choices of clothing I found for boys. What is it with girls’ clothes? So many choices and yet nothing original for my guys, so that is how t shirts with ties were born and I never looked back. They are my most popular sellers to this day. Most of what I create is out of necessity or a request from a friend. It all just blooms from there.

Today, I work full time out of the home as well as run Desert Baby at night and on weekends. I participate in local handmade markets as much as possible. I have 2 boys, Robert who is almost 6 and Connor who is 2. Connor has a condition called alopecia which prohibits him from growing hair. He is my model that is usually wearing a hat. I am a busy mom, but I love it. I have a fantastic husband who allows me to create and supports me through it all. I hope that my hard work and perseverance to do what you love teaches my kids to do the same in life.

If you put in everything you have, you are successful.
