Hi There! I am Courtney, director and sole seamstress for Bumps and Beans. I am married and have two sons, Lincoln and Zeke, aged three and one.
A little bit of my background:
I suffer from a disease known as Endometriosis which I was diagnosed with in 2009. It is a horrible disease which many woman suffer from world wide. With this disease comes an array of symptoms which effect you emotionally, physically and mentally. To top it all off this disease has a large effect on fertility leaving some women infertile and others having to rely on IVF treatment to conceive.
As a result of living with this disease, I have learned various lessons about what is important in life and what it is that I want to achieve in my lifetime. Above all, being able to have a family of my own has always been of the upmost importance.
Where Bumps and Beans began:
In July 2013, I was gifted my first sewing machine. Soon after, I brainstormed many ideas of what I could do to decrease my work hours, and concentrate more on my health and wellbeing. Furthermore, this would help with my long term goal of settling down and starting a family.
As a result, Bumps and Beans was created.
Bumps and Beans today:
Sitting down at my sewing machine has now become a true passion of mine. It provides a relaxing environment to allow my creativity to run wild and simply enjoy making each of my creations.
Bumps and Beans will start popping up at markets around New Zealand in 2019. Keep an eye out for me and do make sure you come and say hello!
Thank you so much for supporting my little business
