Treasury Theme Winner - Bevin Holcroft

We're excited to introduce our first treasury theme contest winner!  Bevin Holcroft, owner of  CrampCakes is the curator of the winning Mother's Day theme treasury.  Here's her Gifts She Will Never Forget treasury.  The following is Bevin's story.

-Brief intro about yourself

Hello, I am Bevin Holcroft. I am A former business executive turned stay at home mom. I have three wonderful children ranging from 3 to 11. Although 3 kids, 2 dogs, a ninja cat, and a husband keep me pretty busy, when I have a moment to spare I love designing and creating, I have been drawing constantly and coming up with ideas since I was a kid, starting with finger painting my bed at 2.

-What is the motivation behind your shop?

Since I stopped working 3 years ago, I knew I wanted to do something creative, just wasn't sure what. Once I came up with the idea for CrampCakes I knew I wanted to be able to share them with others. I get horrible sinus pain and migraines and the only thing that ever helped was the natural heating pad I had, but after years of use and abuse it was looking a bit haggered, and it wasn't so cute to begin with. So I started researching and testing different natural fillers and aromatherapy... and If I was going to make something it needed to be cute, and heck whats cuter than a cupcake.

-What is your favorite item to create and why?

The item I feel most strongly about is my CrampCakes, they are the most soothing thing ever, and I could not live with out mine. However my favorite item to create that is in my shop is my vintage button earrings, I love hunting down and searching for antique buttons, and turning them into cute dainty earrings.
