BTRT Patterns (on Etsy)

Friday, 1 February 2008
Time to feature another talented mother, using her hands and passion to create! This time, I want to introduce you to a relatively new WAHM (work at home mom~ the other variant being, like me, WOHM~ work out of home mom)~ Areka. Areka is the talent behind the graceful and lovely Blue Lake Baby ~ I feel so soothed when I visit her space, very inviting!

Areka is mama to Ava, now 18 months old and the motivation for her business. After 9 months as a working mom Areka knew she needed a change. Having begun cloth diapering (ah, the slippery slope, I know it well!) she began to see a place for her sewing skills when combined with her passion for breastfeeding. Shy about nursing in public, with a distractable nurser, she, like many moms, developed a product out of necessity and in the hopes of helping other moms:
the BLB Nursing Cover.

Areka also makes fabulous looking burp cloths, change pads and other basics with a posh twist.

Blue Lake Baby Company was born in the fall of 2007. The BLB website has just launched and a browse around will give you lots of information and detailed pictures of Areka’s discreet, fashionable and functional covers. You will also find Areka on Hyena Cart and her blog.

Gorgeous fabrics, a gentle and encouraging presence and a great idea!
Please take a moment to check out Areka's work and pass her links along to a friend!
