What’s your favorite sweet treat?
I have been obsessing over the pastries from Beaucoup Bakery lately. The apple turn over I had the other day was heavenly!

Which do you prefer milk or dark chocolate?
Milk all the way!

What is your favorite time of day to create?
I can create at all times of the day. Inspired by scenes on my morning walk, a feather on the ground, décor in magazines. I have a pen and paper on my nightstand when ideas strike in the middle of the night!

What’s your favorite holiday?
I love Christmas and I am especially excited for it this year, as it will be our baby’s first Christmas. It really is all about the kids at Christmas time.

What color describes your personality best?
I am a very outgoing and energetic person, so something bright and colorful, like yellow would describe my personality best. But my favorite color palettes are calming, muted colors mixed with grey. Totally opposite from my personality.

If you had one what was the name of your childhood imaginary friend?
I had two younger sisters….no time for an imaginary friend! They were too busy copying everything I was doing. I had to lead the tribe!

What makes your life sweeter?
The amazing support system I have from my husband, family and friends. Life is about to get a whole lot sweeter come November when my first babe arrives!

Why do you create what you create?
I worked as a dental assistant and then a dental hygienist for years. It never satisfied that need in me to create. I knew I wanted more. Its so rewarding having my own business and getting to do what I really enjoy. I love color, design and textiles. Add in sweet little babies and kids, and it’s a dream job!

What are 3 of your favorite Etsy Shops?
Baby Jives Co. makes the most gorgeous mobiles. I already have one on order for the nursery!
Kardz Kouture is a local mom in Vancouver who makes the most fabulous prints. I own quite a few and have some already picked out to add to the nursery.
Yarning Made
A mom of three, this amazing business owner, hand knits all of her gorgeous blankets! You guessed it, I have already placed my order and can’t wait to see the custom colors we chose!

What advice would you give someone just starting out selling handmade?
Starting and running your own business is really hard. When you find your passion and all you want to do is work at it, your family, and friends seem to get the back seat. Try to find a balance that works for you. Being an entrepreneur can be very lonely at times, so make sure you take the time to be with the people that matter most. Emails can wait….the world won’t end if you don’t respond right away!  It took me a while to realize that I am only one person and I can only do so much.

Brief write up about you and what you create.
My name is Jennifer Wilson and I am the owner and designer of VONBON, an organic cotton apparel and accessory brand for the modern baby and child. I design our fabrics exclusively for our line with modern and gender neutral color palettes that work among all homes. Using only US grown certified organic cotton, our brand is proud to use sustainable and ethical practices to manufacture our products here in Vancouver. No small detail goes unlooked. Each order is sent with a hand written thank you, a hand sewn kraft bag and sealed in our 100% recyclable mailers.

I work from my home studio in beautiful Vancouver, BC. I quit my full time job as a dental hygienist this past December, to live my dream of creating full time and becoming an entrepreneur. I live with my husband Todd, of three years, and we are expecting our first baby in November. I am totally embracing pregnancy and have been feeling great!
I have a new blog series launching July 15th (http://blog.vonbon.ca) that will share my journey into motherhood. Life, style and baby is what it is all about. I’ll be sharing my favorite maternity style inspirations, must have baby products and a whole lot more. I hope you will join me!
