About

Hi! And welcome to Humbled Craft Co. I'm Allison, owner and artist behind HCC. 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 I was born and raised in the West End of Halifax. I now live in the Spryfield area with my partner, my two sons, my two cats, and my rescue pup Millie. It's a full house around here, but there no shortage of love and cuteness.

   Before I started my small business, I received my BA from St. Mary's University, followed by my BSW at Dalhousie University. It was in my final year of my BSW that I was pregnant with my oldest, Dimitri, giving birth one month before convocation. It was a close race, but I made it! I worked in the field doing front line social work for a few years prior to my pregnancy with my second son, Jonas. I felt overwhelmed, overworked, undervalued, and had a hard time balancing work and family life. I loved social work, but there is no doubt that it is a challenging field to be working in as a mom trying to balance it all.  During my second maternity leave and the Covid19 pandemic 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, please hit those DM's or send me an email.

 

Thank you for choosing to support my small business. 

Allison
