All About Astrid

First things first.  Thank you for taking the time to check out my website!  If you purchase something, thank you again!  I have always dreamed about putting my creative talents to good use but prior to having kids, I didn't know how to go about this.  Amazing what having triplets & becoming a stay-at-home mommy can do!  If you met me in person, you would know I am probably one of the least girly-girls you will come across.  I have been a tomboy most of my life & have always prefered the outdoors to staying inside.  Imagine MY surprise when I started making girly stuff for my 2 daughters! 

After overcoming many obstacles, my husband & I found out that we were expecting triplets in September of 2007.  Never in our wildest dreams would we have imagined what unraveled in the following months & now years!  On March 31, 2008, our triplets were born at 33 weeks 6 days gestation (above average for triplets) & spent 10-14 days in the NICU.  Luckily, they were all healthy & only needed to show that they could take a bottle & put on some weight before they came home.  Since April 15th of that year, our life has been a rollercoaster ride!  Being the mother to Sofi, Ian, & Gabriella is the BEST THING IN THE WORLD!  My husband has been very supportive in my new venture.  I love him w/ all my heart!

The diaper cakes started off w/ me making them for a couple of friends.  The next thing I knew, MK was asking me to make THREE for a shower she was hosting & that is when I decided it would be a good idea to start Divine Diaper Cakes.  Something similar happened w/ the tutus.  I decided I NEEDED tutus for the girls to wear at their birthday party.  Well, another friend saw what I did & wanted one for her daughter.  I made it as a gift.  Then, the same friend that bought my first diaper cake decided she needed to purchase FIVE tutus & matching bows!  The rest, as they say, is history.
