Type 1 diabetes has taken a lot from my family. A lot. It's given some things too. There aren't many families where dad and daughter can form their own band with musical pump alarms as the only instruments.
One of the things that it has taken away from us (and lots and lots of others) is the 2-income household. We've done OK on just what I've been able to earn over the years from working 1 full-time job plus any number of part-time ones from being a college instructor to a security guard at professional wrestling events.
But that's not really the point. The point is that one person in my house is working her ass off and doesn't earn any "income." As some of you know, Amy is an absolutely brilliant designer of little girls' clothes, and has been known to make a stunning cake or three. The clothes she makes are incredible, as are the cakes.
So that brings us to today, where Amy is slowly rolling her line of insulin pump pouches out in the market. To be sure, there is no shortage of pump pouches available for sale, but I think that there is an under-served market for pump pouches that are hand-sewn, high-quality pouches made of high-quality fabrics. Typically, her pouches are beautiful, practical, and very well-made.
Swing on by her site and check them out. She's busily adding more to her site, so it re-directs to a listing on Etsy, but check back often as I expect her site to be up and running soon. And if you're so inclined, you might give one of her pouches a try. You won't be disappointed.
