Meet the Maker

Christina Loewen and her daughter Scarlett live in a small town in British Columbia, Canada.

She is passionate about capturing and writing about the beauty of motherhood and loves to share her work through her social media platforms.

And Meet Our Little Smartie

"Scarlett is only two years old but she is passionate about learning all about the world around her. I was inspired to create this costume for her by her latest interest in science. Scarlett loves creating her own concoctions so I thought that Marie Curie would be a fun historical "smartie" for Scarlett to dress up as this Halloween. Marie Curie was quite an amazing woman in the field of science as she discovered the elements Polonium and Radium and won two Nobel Prizes."
