Sweet N Swag was born through an effort to help a friend. A close friend of mine suffered a tragedy and lost her little baby. In an effort to help, I started making hair bows and bow ties to sell and raise money to help my friend cover her baby Porter's medical costs. After Penny's for Porter was completed, I still had several bows left over. A friend suggested I list them on Etsy and they were a hit. Sweet N Swag was born! I thought this would be a great way to stay home with my new baby, but still earn money to pay for student loans. I hoped to sell one bow a day to counteract student loan interest. A few months later I was buried in orders and couldn't keep up. My friends came to the rescue. Soon four or five of us were crammed in our little spare bedroom making bows everyday. We had a blast. We were working together having fun, and being able to schedule it around being with our young children. What was initially meant to help Porter, was providing greater financial freedom to several young moms and allowing us to spend more time with our families.
