About Creative Littles

Meet Amy, the Mama Behind Creative Littles

Amy, a mama of three, is the one-woman force behind Creative Littles.

Married to her high school sweetheart Corey, she and her husband live in the Twin Cities with their children Avery (their first-born, a 14-year-old dog), Luca (10), Harper (8), and Levi (4).

As a busy full-time mom, Amy's hobbies include reading, crafting, and overcommitting herself to too many causes and activities.

Avid lake lovers, Amy and her family love to vacation at the beach and spend as much time as possible at the lakes during the summer. Her children's love for the small things at the beach -- water, simple sand, and a few basic tools -- is a continual inspiration for the Creative Littles brand.

To top it off, Amy is a mom of many secret talents. If you cross paths out on the town, ask her to tell you the 3 countries she's lived in, or to recite the entire alphabet backwards in under 10 seconds.

It all started with a stocking: how Creative Littles began

It all started around December 2021. Amy had purchased craft supplies to make Christmas stocking stuffers for her artistic daughter who loves playdough, crafts, and sensory activities. Amy carefully selected objects to create a mermaid-theme sensory play kit.

The stocking-stuffer, a mermaid kit was a big hit with her daughter, but Amy didn't know what to do with leftover supplies. Amy reached out to friends and family to ask if they'd like to buy any sensory play kits, and a business was born.

A year ago, Amy launched the CreativeLittles.shop website to make it easier for her growing customer base to find and order products.
