My name is Susan and I am the maker/creator of Litsie Creations.
My inspiration for the name of my business came from my granddaughter as Litsie is her nickname and also because I would like to encourage her and all others to be environmentally conscious individuals. My family has been, and continues to be, extremely supportive through this venture of mine. My daughter-in-law inspired me with the idea of handcrafting reusable bags and also designed my logo and product cards. One son has designed my website, edits pictures and offers never-ending technical support. Another son provided me with a cash start-up fund and another provides me unending support and has helped me complete craft fair applications.
On going for a car ride, the first thing my grandchildren ask for is their snack bag. As for my newest granddaughter, a snack bag is the perfect clean place to store a pacifier . The wetbag/diaper bag is the first place to store soiled diapers. My wet bags have been a hit with my swimming class – they make a great swimming bag and are also great for the beach.
I have had a love for fabrics and sewing since I was a young girl. I remember making clothes for my Barbie doll. My first job was in a fabric store at age 14 and I followed this by becoming a Family Studies teacher. My sewing classes were my favourite, I guess I have been a fabric junky for several years.
I have added reusable produce bags, along with microwaveable flax seed heating pads to my shop as well. My new passion is working with high quality cork from Portugal!
I hope you enjoy my handmade products as much as I enjoy making them.
