CuddleBaby Boutique-A Handmade Blanket for Every Child!

Oftentimes, when you head out to the store to look for that special blanket for your little one, you find the same designs. Everyone wants to have a unique blanket and Shannon at CuddleBaby Boutique agrees every child should have at least one blanket that is handmade! Not only does Shannon create BEAUTIFUL extra-large receiving blankets, but you can also find onesies, hair clips, beautiful quilts to bundle up baby, and alot more!

CuddleBaby Boutique-A Handmade Blanket for Every Child! 1 Shannon was awesome enough to tell us a little bit about being a Work at Home Mom and how she created CuddleBaby Boutique!

1. Tell us a little about yourself.
My name is Shannon Keyser. I’m from Utah, where I’ve lived my entire life. I’m married to the most wonderful husband in the world, Chad and I have two adorable little girls, Myra (3) and Alexys (1). I enjoy reading, playing the piano, hiking, camping and spending time with my family. Oh, and sewing, of course!

2. How did CuddleBaby Boutique begin?
When my 2nd baby, Alexys, was born, she was almost 2 months early and spent 5 weeks in the NICU at the hospital. They had the most wonderful, extra-large blankets there that they would wrap the babies in. I was frustrated that I couldn’t find large receiving blankets at the store, so I decided to start making my own. Then I thought that perhaps others would like larger blankets also, thus the idea for CuddleBaby Boutique was born.

3. What do you love most about working from home?
First and foremost, I am a mom and a wife. I love being at home with my 2 kids and I wouldn’t have it any other way. CuddleBaby Boutique allows me to make a little extra money while spending time with my family.

4. Do you have a favorite project you love working on?
I love making quilts. I don’t do them very often, but I am always so pleased with the finished project. I’ve also started making Double-sided minky blankets with applique designs on them and that’s been a lot of fun. Custom orders are also enjoyable.

5. Do you have any words of advice for Moms who would like to start their own business?
My advice would be to do something you enjoy and make sure you balance your time. The family comes first!
