Have you seen our awesome new series we are starting here on the blog called Treat Yourself Handmade Hustlers!? We absolutely love the awesome creative community that we get to work with and are so excited to share more about them right here! These ladies aren’t just hard workers, they are hustlers! Many have children or second jobs and run their households while also running businesses. We want to applaud, encourage and support them!

Our box was born not only out of a desire to help others indulge for themselves every now and then, but also out of our passion to empower and help grow other small, handmade and women-owned businesses.We will be sharing more about these amazing shops and the women behind them each week.


What are your favorite ways to treat yourself? As a mom of 5 a shower by myself is amazing!  But I also really enjoy my morning coffee

What’s your favorite sweet treat? anything fruity like skittles

Which do you prefer milk or dark chocolate? milk chocolate

What is your favorite time of day to create? afternoon when kids are busy or at night after bedtime

What’s your favorite holiday? Christmas

What color describes your personality?  any shade of green.

What makes your life sweeter? nothing is sweeter and makes me happier than being with my husband and kids!

Why do you create what you create?  crafts and doing projects myself have always been something I enjoy.  I also like when things are practical and serve a purpose but are cute and fit in with decor.

What are 3 of your favorite handmade shops? Free Babes, Little Blue Olive and Briar Handmade
What advice would you give someone just starting out selling handmade?  The first hard thing to do is take the leap and put your item(s) out there.  The second is actually selling your things sending them to their new home and wondering/worrying if your customers will be happy and love what you’ve done.  But as long as it’s done with love and thought it will be appreciated within this handmade community.

         About YOU:  My name is Alaina. I’ve been married for 10 years this July to, my favorite person, my husband Luke.  We just  welcomed our 5th child into the family in June.  We now have 2 boys and 3 girls.  We are having the time of our lives raising our little crew.  Family is everything!

I love coffee and have an Italian sweet cream creamer addiction (tastes like lucky charm marshmallows!!)

What I love most about doing Lema Luel is that I get to be home with the kids and do it as I can find time without sacrificing family time.  Also that the kids get to do their own little projects right along side me.
