A little about me . . .I am a wife and a mommy to two beautiful little girls. Between the months of
August and June, I can be found in a classroom teaching. I love to read and spend time at the beach with my family. I also enjoy getting crafty!IMG_9757_Edited(1)Growing up, my mom always sewed dresses for myself and my sister (before my sister came along, the dresses were for myself and my cabbage patch doll). For as long as I can remember, my mom has hoped and prayed that either my sister or I would take up sewing too.It wasn’t until the birth of my second daughter that I really developed an interest in sewing. I also started to dabble in bow making at the same time. From day one in the hospital, my girls could be seen with a big bow or flower on their head.At the time, we had befriended a wonderful woman, who we referred to as our “bow lady”. I was encouraged by her to make my own bows and headbands. I started out with basic felt flowers on elastic headbands, and then eventually graduated to designing different bows with various ribbons.IMG_9763(1)In 2012, after receiving a pink slip from my school district, I decided to amp up my bow business. I opened up an Etsy shop, You Are My Sunshines, as well as a Facebook page for my bows. Our “bow lady” also contacted me about taking over her supplies as she was moving on to bigger things. I immediately said yes.I excitedly began to turn my fun hobby into a small business. My pink slip was rescinded, and I became a full-time working mama, with a side business!Due to my time constraints for getting creative, my business really thrives on custom orders. I love working with customers on creating something that they will love! I do my best to make bows to post on my sites to sell, or at the least to give shoppers ideas for what they might like. I am always inspired by my girls: either by a new outfit, an event they have coming up, soccer team colors, or ballet classes.IMG_9743_Edited(1)I make character or theme bows for birthday party favors (Disney princesses, Barbie, Mickey Mouse, etc.). I make bows for all of the holidays, various sports teams, and different events. I recently became inspired to make my own elastic hair bands and headbands for myself and my daughters.I hope to continue to grow my business. Who knows what I will add next!

Photographer Of The Month
: Charlie and Violet Photography



Charlie and Violet Photography speaks for itself. Nicole Klein captures the moment of a newborn in the most intimate beautiful light. She photographs all stages of life and we love her family shots. You can’t help but be captivated by her style and essence as a photographer.


A little about Nicole in her words…


After almost 20 years in the design industry and owning my own ad agency, I decided to pursue another passion of mine – photography. After studying with some of the best newborn photographers in the country, I introduced Charlie & Violet Photography to the Twin Cities. I now focus primarily on providing a stellar customer experience to all families looking for artistic newborn, maternity and family photos. When I’m not taking photos, I’m spending time with my husband and two little boys.



Charlie and Violet Photography is located in Minnesota and California! For inquiries, click here.
