My name is Wendy. I am mama to my sweet girls, Shelby (12/07) and Alexis (7/11) and wife to my hero-hubby, Jason. I love all art forms, from crafting & muraling to food design, and I dabble in a little of all of it!!
After having Shelby, who was born with more hair than any baby I'd ever seen, I started looking for great hair accessory options for little babies that could work for her up to toddlerhood and beyond. Lots of what I found didn't work for superfine baby hair (even though she had a TON) and those I did find were extremely expensive and only found in specialty boutiques. So I jumped back into my love of crafting and created my Anti-Slippie Hair Clippies! I had so many compliments and inquiries on where they could be purchased, I decided to make them for sale to my friends locally.
Then I began to cloth diaper Shelby, and I joined DiaperSwappers-a great online community of Earth-friendly mamas. We all buy, sell and trade cloth diapers and lots of information and support on parenting in every aspect. And that is where Funky Birdie began to take shape! I had online friends begin to show interest in my wares and that's where I learned the term "WAHM": Work At Home Mother. And that's who I am!! Well, long story short: my creations have grown so much in popularity, that here I am with a website of my own!!!
I've also rekindled my long-love of beading, when I discovered the amazing healing and pain relief capabilities of Baltic Amber. It reminded me how much I love jewelry making (I started making jewelry over 20 yrs. ago!!) So I decided to expand my shop to include Baltic Amber healing jewelry for babies, toddlers, children and adults. This has now become our specialty and by far the most popular request!
I am really looking forward to showcasing my family-focused artistic creations here for others to enjoy and experience. My future project plans include tie dye, tutus, stitch markers, headbands and sewing projects!
We want to THANK YOU for your business! When you shop with FuNkY Birdie Boutique, you are supporting an
American home-based business! All of our jewelry is genuine Baltic Amber, 100% designed and crafted by us-AMERICAN MADE!!
