Featuring: LeakyMouth

Recently I bought some laundry soap off etsy and I was so happy with my purchase that I thought to share my experience with all my followers featuring this amazing seller, Stacy and her shop.



But let's hear directly from her what's behind her products.

My name is Stacy, I live in Paradise, California (Northern California). I am a wife, a mother of two and a Teacher.
My sewing experiences began in junior high, but because my mother didn't sew I wasn't able to continue the interest like I wanted to. My grandmother would sew and sometimes I was privileged enough to have some experiences with her and make something. For 3 years I asked for a sewing machine in my adult life and finally received one a little over 2 years ago. I was pregnant and was staying at home. Money was tight (still is), but choosing to stay home only forced me to be more frugal. I then purchased second hand or received free maternity clothes and began altering them to fit since that was the least expensive way for us at that time. I then had my son and found that he was the ultimate drooler. Having little money I found fabric remnants that added up no more then a few dollars and made some bibs. Around town I received so many compliments that I actually had a boutique in town call me to sell them in their shop. So I did, then I found etsy. I began sewing my waterproof bibs and selling them.




Around that same time my husband was injured and out of work for several months so times even got more tough. Somehow, we pulled through and managed to still have a lot of blessings. I began cloth diapering my son, using cloth wipes and found ways to make my own laundry soap and dishwashing detergent. Those few changes helped our family out tremendously. We save a ton of money doing those small things.


Today I am going back to school to complete my degree in Liberal Studies. I plan on receiving my Bachelors degree in a few years with an area of concentration in Montessori (the NCME degree is transferable to Chico State University) and an emphasis/minor in Special Education.
So, what are you waiting for?? Be sure to check out Stacy's shop for amazing deals, like free shipping for orders over $40 or a bogo sale on her cute bibs, and when you're at it pay a visit to her blog:)
