Hi! And welcome to Humbled Craft Co. I'm Allison, owner and artist. Before we get into my story, I just want to say thank you for coming to my website and supporting my small business! I'm a mom of two little boys and two kitties. I was born and raised in the West End of Halifax. I now live in the Spryfield area with my husband of 7 years, Nick, and our boys.
Before I started my small business, I chose the academic route and received by Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from St. Mary's University, followed by my Bachelor of Social Work at Dalhousie University. It was in my final year of my BSW that I was pregnant with our oldest, Dimitri, giving birth one month before convocation. I worked in the field for a few years prior to my pregnancy with our second son, Jonas. I felt overwhelmed, overworked, undervalued, and had a hard time balancing work and family life. It was during my second maternity leave and the Covid19 pandemic that I realized that I wanted to re-focus my career path and choose a job that was better suited to my lifestyle. Owning a small business is busy and chaotic at times, but working from home around my own schedule gives me so much flexibility, which is so valuable to my family. Doing what I love has truly been life changing.
If you've been here before, you know that Humbled Craft Co started with a simple idea to bring practical, timeless and affordable décor and art into your homes. Whether you are here to browse, purchase, or simply in search of inspiration- I'm overjoyed that you have chosen this space and I hope you find what you're looking for. I value every customer and the relationships I have had the privilege to make through this business. Meeting new people is just one of the many perks of this space, so if you are looking for someone to talk to about home decor, styling, art, motherhood, or anything really, I am happy to chat!
Thank you for choosing to support my small business.
