Bud & Blossom
The Nooks - March 18, 2020
My name is Carmen, and I’m the maker behind Bud & Blossom designs here in Ontario, Canada.
On a typical day you will find me in yoga pants with my hair in a messy bun, drinking cold coffee and chasing after one of my 3 children (I’m sure most stay-at-home moms can relate!). My hobbies include going to the gym, drinking wine, online shopping (#supporthandmade #shopsmall) and saying things like, “don’t touch that!” and, "get that out of your mouth!"
I have always been a creative person. I love to draw, and I dabble in interior decorating, but my passion has always been all things fashion. Sewing is always a skill I wanted to learn. While on maternity leave with my second child I decided it was about time. I bought myself a sewing machine and taught myself how to sew. It was love at first stitch! Not long after that I opened Bud & Blossom, my little business where I design and create handmade children’s clothing. I love all aspects of Bud & Blossom Designs. It has allowed me to be creative and express in a way I never imagined.
With Bud & Blossom, my goal is to create beautiful, classic and timeless clothing for children.
