Being a mom and running a business can be a tough thing to do, but Karla makes it work! Learn more about her and her business, My Mommy Life of 3 below. We are so excited that she will be a part of the 2019 Holiday Utah Handmade Market!

Karla, tell us a bit about yourself!

Hey all, I’m Karla, the maker behind My Mommy Life of 3.

I love my family, music, sewing, chocolate, popcorn, reading, & sleeping.

I don’t like dishes, laundry, yardwork, or scary movies.

Where did your creative spark begin and can you trace your path to where you are today? What inspires your creativity?

I learned to sew the basics in Jr. High TLC class.

I learned to love sewing from my mom and sister.

I get inspired to create when I see a need to be filled.

I love to make practical items that are also pretty.

Who’s your biggest fan?

My biggest fan is my daughter. I love that I am an example to her. I hope that by doing what I love, it shows all my kids that they can also live their dreams.

What do you create, and what makes it so special?

I create reusables for every day. They are special because they are useful, eco-friendly, and well made.


What do you love most about what you create?

I love that I’m throwing away less. I love that by doing something simple, knowing I can make a tremendous difference over time.


How did you come up with your great idea?

My idea came to me as I started to notice what I was throwing out often.

I decided that there were things that I could do to change – simple things like taking my own bags, using makeup wipes and towels, and using washable items to pack lunches.

I started to get comments on a few and knew that I could help make a more significant impact by selling what I was using.


What do your customers love most about your products?

Customers always compliment my work.

I put my heart into what I make and have had years of trial and error experience to make things look good.

I have given my products a thorough quality check by letting my kids use them.

Where do you create?

I create all my items in my home at my kitchen table. I’m usually cooking something or have one of my kids near me while I sew.


What’s something you’ve learned through running a handmade business in the past 12 months?

Just start. And then keep going!


What is the best way for people to connect with you?
