Thriving Homefront was created in August 2019. I was raising two toddlers while my husband was deployed. One piece of advice I always give to military spouses going through a deployment is to try something new! I decided my "something new" this deployment would be to dust off the sewing machine, that had moved to several different states and never been touched, and finally teach myself how to sew. After several hours of watching Youtube tutorials, I was finally able to sew myself a headband. I decided to sew my daughters matching headbands, as well. Within a couple weeks, I had received several requests from friends to start selling these headbands. Now, I sell mommy+me headband sets, along with several other different types of products, in my online shop to help spark joy, inspire confidence, and help others thrive in their homefront.
