Like many people with an entrepreneurial spirit, I have many mentors to thank for where I am today.

I am a big believer in mentoring and the amazing impact that can be had when one takes the time to share their craft with someone who is passionate. Though I have many family members to thank for their advice and support over the years, one of my business mentors is friend Leigh Chandler of Papillon Linens. I have Leigh to thank for her kindness, patience and every step of the way in setting me up to tangibly succeed.

But, sometimes on a rare occasion, you make an impact without even realizing you are doing so. I received the most wonderful email several months back from Krista Montalvo. Krista owns Ginger Magnolia Catering {which means she’s a fabulous cook, of course!} and emailed me to let me know of a new business she had recently launched – Marmie Bags.

Krista told me in her note that IceMilk Aprons had inspired her to create Marmie Bags. She had connected with the story of our roots, having had the same fond relationship with her Grandmother that I did. She now has children of her own, who lovingly call their Grandmother “Marmie.” I was so taken aback and inspired by her note and have enjoyed popping over and perusing her bags. I love the vintage feel she brings to the product and cheer her on as she continues to grow her business.

I am thrilled that we are hosting our first official giveaway on heirloomed with Marmie Bags, and even more thrilled with the bag she’s giving away! This fabulous bag is very reminiscent of our “Rollings of Cinnamon” apron – I just adore the big black bow and simplicity of the styling.
