Sweet Southern Bums - Spotlight

I have followed the wonderful Mama, Angela, at Sweet Southern Bums on Facebook for a while now :)  She was also part of Baby K's 1st Birthday Event!  I found SSB on Facebook through a group that I am in, WAHM Shop*, where WAHMs can sell and show off their products.  Angela has now come out with a new product for Mamas.  I know you want to know what it is but you will have to read the post to find out :) 

A Couple Questions for Angela and SSB!

Tell me a little about you :)

My name is Angela and I am 26 years old.  I have a wonderful husband of 6 years.  We have been blessed with a wonderful two year old girl, and will be blessed by a little boy in late September. Before becoming a mommy and a WAHM, I was a dental assistant for 5 years. I absolutely loved it! But I knew I would never get this time back with my daughter. I love cloth diapering! It has become an obsession almost!

Do or have you Cloth Diapered any children?

I started cloth diapering my now two year old when she was 4 months old. And I will have a new little one here in late September!
What made you decided to be a WAHM and how did you decided what you were going to make?

I decided to be a WAHM after I realized all of the cute Diapers I had to have, were more expensive than I could afford.  Living on a single income, and being a fluff addict is hard!! That's when I decided to learn how to sew!

Where did the name come from?

The name was originally No Name Fluff, after I failed to come up with a name. About 8 months into being a WAHM, I decided that the name didn't suit what I wanted it to.  So I asked my fans to help me come up with a funner name. And Sweet Southern Bums was created! 

What is your favorite item that you carry or to make?

My favorite item I carry and make are my nursing pads. I have just started making them as testers, and they are being sent out with some of my orders.

What is your newest item you carry and tell me a little about it

My newest item is nursing pads!  They are basically made from scraps I have left over after I make diapers. They have hidden pul and an absorbent inner to prevent leaks. They also have cute prints and soft crushed panne (velvet) just for mom! 

What are your dreams for SSB in the future?

My dreams for SSB in the future, are to expand what I make. I recently purchased an embroidery machine to embroider diapers, as well as other things like shirts. I also plan to begin making fitteds!
