Get to Know

My name is Jessica Cauthon. I started The Chickadee Tree in 2003 as a way to earn a little extra money to buy my college books and gas for my truck. When my husband and I had our daughter in early 2009, we decided that I should stay home and take care of the baby and our future children. Over the last two years, I've made a little money at local craft shows.

I published a Facebook Page in late 2009 to keep my customers up-to-date on local events I would be available at. As our family grew with the addition of our son in late 2010, I decided to take my online presence a step further and open an online store. A friend sent me to Etsy, and I opened a shop there. After several months of no sales on Etsy, I moved my shop to Artfire.

Now that our fourth child and third son has arrived, I'm doing my best to establish an online presence so I can stay at home and take care of all of our children for as long as possible.
