Meet Cassie

Hi there! I’m Cassie and I’m so excited that you’ve found my little piece of the internet! I have always had a creative mind and loved children and making special things for them.

During high school I worked as a preschool teacher and realized the importance of having resources available for teaching activities.

Straight out of high school, I began going to school to be an elementary school teacher so I could make things magical for kids like some of my teachers did for me.  I earned my associates degree, but then decided I wanted to create the resources to help teachers and parents teach their kids the skills they need and make life fun for kids.

I put my creativity to use and started this blog as well as an Etsy shop.

My Etsy shop and slowly started making sales and my blog began getting traffic.  It started to snowball and I haven’t looked back since.

I realized that starting an Etsy business and blog was amazing, but I also had to make sure this was a business that I could continue to run for years to come without relying on Etsy.  This is when I really started focusing on creating a lasting business that can support me for the rest of my life.

I share my journey with running a successful Etsy business in addition to fun crafts and free printables for kids here on this blog.

What you’ll find on this site

I have owned my own small business since I was 19 years old.  I was a self-employed nail technician for 18 years as well as owning a salon for 4 years.  During that time, I learned creative ways for marketing my business and realized my passion for marketing.

With my love of crafts, I decided to start this blog and start my own handmade business and sell my items on Etsy.  I enjoy sharing my tips on how I make money blogging, on YouTube and selling on Etsy to inspire others to create their own business and make money online from home.

I don’t only share my business successes though. I also have loads of free printables for kids on my blog that are perfect for creating special memories for kids and teaching them skills.

A Few Things You Probably Don’t Know About Me

  • I love emojis 😃❤. They’re just so cute! What’s not to love?!
  • I’ve had a lot of different hair colors…brunette, blonde, black with bright red, and black with purple. I’m currently brunette, but that probably won’t last long! By the way, blondes do have more fun!
  • Cassie Smallwood
    Me as a blonde
  • I met my boyfriend John 18 years ago on a blind date set up by my friend’s husband and we’ve been inseparable since!
  • I’m a dog mom to 2 crazy Pomeranians. My little girl is Pumpkin (the light colored one) and my little boy is Romeo (the dark one). They are totally nuts, but they bring me so much joy! My neighbors probably think I’m crazy because I talk to them like they are my children. 😜


  • I have one younger sister who is so amazing! My best friend for life. And she’s crafty too!  Did I mention we love photo booths?!
  • I love cold weather!!! This girl was not made for the heat. Don’t even ask why I spent almost 30 years in Phoenix. I’m still trying to figure that out myself! Who knows, I may end up in Alaska one day.

What Now?

Now that you know way more about me than you probably ever wanted to, where do we go from here?
