Tell us a bit about yourself? Apart from being ‘creative’ what do you do?
I am stay at home mom to an year old beautiful baby girl. Bubu is her pet name. I can't survive without something to keep my hands busy, so I sew when I can, when my baby is napping and my husband is busy at work.
What inspires you to do the kind of work you do?
Since being a mom, I was never able to find anything that worked well for both me and my baby. So I began to make my own handmade products that everyone else also loved. My aim is to provide mothers alike the choice of cute and functional, one a kind accessories both for themselves and their baby.
Do you look up to anyone? Who? Why?
My mom is my biggest inspiration. I learnt all my basic skills from her. I wish to become like my mom inshallah.
What other passions do you have in your life?
I love to cook, and also photograph. I am also the author of the food blog 'zaiqa.net'
How do you promote your work?
I have a facebook page where I post about my handmade items - www.facebook.com/OmeesBoutique
In the future I’d like to be…
successful etsy shop owner inshallah. This will give the flexibility to work from my home, at my convenience, being close to my baby all the time inshallah.

Recently I made a purchase on Zibbet that was so cute that I have to share it with you. Isabelle recently closed her shop doors on Zibbet, but I managed to purchase these adorable Crochet Owly Beanie Ear Flaps, before the closure. I got one for each of my daughters, but had her change the little flower on the Owls to each girls’ favorite colors. Aren't they charming?
If you'd like to see more of Isabelle's adorable creations, please visit her Facebook page!
