Children's Creations is created by Heidi Hamilton and Lauren Rojas. These two ladies used to have their own craft business, but when they met at a craft show in Dakota City, they became fast friends and decided to join forces and start Children's Creations. Heidi has a little boy, Auston, 3. Lauren has two children, Brooke, 3, and Maddox, 3 months. Their husbands are very supportive of their work and even helps them out sometime...when it comes to hardware projects.
Heidi used to run Heidi's Hems. She created outfits for dolls and dogs. She still make these items, but concentrates on doll clothes during the winter mostly. Now, she helps with other children crafts and watching Maddox while Lauren work on her orders. Lauren said that Heidi is so much better at sewing and have taught her a lot of techniques. She is also working on her degree in Forensics and work at a local daycare. She fill orders in between.
Lauren is a care giver and fills her orders in between work and taking care of her young ones. She is very creative when it comes to putting things together and she gets her inspirations everywhere. Everything she looks at, she would think about how she can incorporate that into new items for their shop and make it more affordable for the buyers. For example, on the photo below, Lauren would use the pendants from these necklaces and place it in the middle of the rosettes for another outfit, which she got the inspiration from the outfit on the left.

Since they are busy with orders, they won't be joining anymore craft shows at the moment, except Saturday in the Park. They love going to that one and helping families out. They include containers and merchandise at their tables for various causes they feel strongly about. The rings below are their best seller during these events.
They also have booths at Hunt & Pick Treasures Boutique on Nebraska St. Lauren moves back and forth from Rancho Mirage, California to Sioux City, Iowa, so she also have a booth there. All the items on their racks now will be going with her to California when she moves. They can also ship orders to California and vice versa when needed.
