Mom-tober Mompreneurs: Spotlight on Marie

2 Oct

I know October is a busy month. Breast cancer awareness and domestic violence awareness are two of the causes many have heard about. Then, of course, there’s Halloween!

Over here, on my tiny corner of the internet, I think there might be room for another thing so I’m declaring October as the month of the mom-preneur! That is, mommies who are entrepreneurs.

I know, I know…so clever.

Over the next few weeks, I’m going to introduce you to four amazing mom-preneurs and tell you about their fabulous products.

THEN there is going to be a giveaway!

Oh yes.

After the mamas have been introduced and you’ve all had time to ooooh and aaaah, one lucky reader will receive a gift basket of amazing products!

Details about the gift basket will follow

Let’s get right to the first feature!

Marie’s Digital Designs and Prints

I want to introduce you to my dear friend Marie: she is a young and busy mother (and I mean busy) who has recently decided to start sharing her creativity with others.

In the final throes of her maternity leave, Marie realized the fun she was having tinkering on Her laptop might actually be appealing to other people!

Even though she was about to become even busier with work, Marie decided there was nothing to lose by seeing if anybody was interested in her wares. A few months ago, she started up a little business wherein she could actually sell her designs!

The prices are fair and affordable and the designs are visually appealing.

It started off simple, with back to school signs and birth announcements:

Here is the one she made for my school-aged child:

Marie made this for her own adorable son:

Those were very popular and, encouraged, Marie began adding new and different designs at a fantastic pace. The rate with which new ideas get posted to her Facebook page, leads me to believe that her brain is always thinking and creating and looking ahead.

Just look at this stuff:

There are many more pictures to peruse on her Facebook page too! If you see something you like, Marie would be more than happy to customize it for you or your child. If you have an idea for something else, Marie would be excited to help you make that idea come to life.

Most importantly, keep watching the Facebook page because new and increasingly adorable print ideas are getting posted all the time!

    Bring those computer designs to Southern Ontario. They are creative, fun, adorable and most importantly bring a smile to my face. Kudos

    So glad to know that Marie is doing computer design like this! It’s all very cute – I am always needing more logo work done etc, so will keep her in mind!
