About Sweet Sips
Sweet Sips is a small brand with sassy, classy, seasonal and often offside sweary mugs and accessories. For many years I knew that I wanted to have a business, something that would be my own. I was working full time as a graphic designer for a local agency where I had been for 9 years and I had always been a big coffee drinker for as long as I could remember.
In 2014 when I was on maternity leave with my twins I spent a lot of time thinking of what I could do as a creative outlet. I researched for many months all different times of business ideas I could do and it just came to be by pairing my three favourite things…. Design, Coffee and #momlife, so in 2015 I launched Sweet Sips as a hobby.
For as long as I could remember being a mom was always my dream. I went back to work for two years after my third daughter was born. I really struggled with not loving my job, and having to be up all hours of the night working on my side business. After having a conversation with my husband we both knew the best choice for our family was to have me home and really focus on growing my business, as it would allow the flexibility for our family.
Over the last four years since leaving the corporate world my business has grown to a place a never dreamt of. I started my online journey on Etsy where I receive orders from people from all over North America, and have since moved to Shopify. I also have wholesale customers who mean so much to me and I absolutely love working with who are the ones who help me to get my product into the hands of even more customers all over the county.
Our community has truly been the backbone of my business. Ever since the start I've had so much support which makes a huge difference when starting a business. Networking with other local makers, business owners as well as everyday people have made my business what it is today. Without the local support I wouldn't be where I am today, and truly feel so lucky to have the customers and friends that I have.
My goal over the years has always remained the same, to bring a smile to people faces when they grab their morning coffee after a tough day or night. My heart is so happy to know that my customers love their mugs and love sharing them with their family and friends!
As Sweet Sips continues to grow I can't wait to share with you all things Drinkware!
