Introducing Russell Sprouts Kids: Our Story

Hello and welcome!  I am so happy to be able to say that Russell Sprouts Kids has officially launched!  This journey seems to have happened over night, but has been a dream of mine for so long.

How did I get here?  Well, I have always had a love for the little touches and details.  I have some extremely talented people in my family that I have admired since a child. They've been my inspiration. 

It wasn’t until January of this year that I felt I was able to put my desires into action.  I married Logan, the most supportive man, at the beginning of 2017.  We moved into an exterior garage (yeah, garage) on my parents property and made it our home!  Crazy?  Kind of!  But we are loving it.  This project has been so special to us, and I have gotten to come up with all sorts of ideas on how to make this tiny brick building a space for Logan and I to start our lives together.  My loving father and husband have put their hands to work, while my mother and I get to plan all the fun stuff!  I enjoy shopping for cute items to put in our home, but I really found a love for creating pieces myself (with a lot of Logan’s help)!  I would find things around our construction zone and think “how can we reuse this”.  This has been so fun for me and definitely such a special part of Russell Sprouts.

So how did ‘kids’ become a part of all this?  Glad you asked!  My degree is in Family and Child Development.  I love it!  I have had many dreams for what my career would look like, and I pursued those full heartily, but the good Lord kept changing my path.  I found this frustrating and not part of my ‘plan’.  I found myself being led to start something on my own, but how terrifying is that?  Again, I had many ideas of what this could look like, but no true direction.  With a love for decorating and excitement to start a family with my new husband, a big light bulb went off.  Why not put the two together?  Decorating a child’s space can be so fun, but also stressful.  How do you keep it functional and practical?  I am excited to walk through this with you!  While creating my own pieces, and providing decorating services for children’s spaces will be a part of Russell Sprouts Kids, I am also excited to offer special and unique lines of children’s clothing.  

I love kid’s fashion and those tiny outfits just make me giddy.  All of my clothes in the shop are Ethical and Fair Trade made.  Meaning, no child labor, ever, sweatshop free clothing, fair wages and a safe work environment.  Not to mention, they are all certified organic clothing and improving the lives of the people who make them.  Who wouldn’t want their kiddos to be sporting this!  Children’s clothing has become so special to me and I hope you and your littles will enjoy these wonderful pieces!

My hope for Russell Sprouts Kids is to grow alongside you and the little sprouts in your life.  I am so happy to share this experience with you!
