My hubs and I purchased our first home this year and I can't wait to see the look on his face Christmas morning when he opens our latest addition to our tree. PERFECT ITEM!!!!
These turned out great! They are a beautiful addition to our playroom. Thank you so much for getting them off to us so quickly! ❤️
Perfect housewarming gift!! Excellent quality and arrived very timely. The ornament is something that our friends can keep and it will hopefully bring fond memories of the friends that gave it to them.
About the Owner
I never envisioned myself as a small business owner. I grew up thinking I would go into education, but ultimately graduated with a degree in sociology and psychology. After graduation, I kept my job as a early childhood TA waiting to see what I wanted to do when I "grew up". Then, my daughter was born...
I dove head-first into Mommyhood and found that all I really wanted to do was to soak up every moment of her youth. So, I walked into work one day and gave my notice. I came home that night and told Carl. "Trust me -- just let me try." He took a few deep breaths, and let me test my wings.
Two years later, with the love and support of amazing family & friends, t.t.g blossomed into more than we ever dreamed! I am blessed to have the opportunity to spend my days with my daughter and be a present part of her everyday.
I never had a specific goal and I still haven't "grown up" -- maybe I never will. Hopefully, I will "grow" all of my days; change with seasons, weather storms, and always reach a little higher.
