This week’s interview is brought to you by pioupioukids. Maryanne from Bagelcreations is passionate about sewing and very creative. I bet her bestseller must be those bright colorful cup cozies, the “Chico cozies”. Put one of those around your morning coffee and the day ahead of you will look much brighter! She also makes fun pouches, bags, wristlets… anything a woman can fashion!
