A bit more about Whimsy Daisy Designs
Susan Thompson is the creator and designer of Whimsy Daisy Designs and has a love of unique and thoughtfully designed décor. Susan has always had a love of all forms of art and décor and has followed her passion and turn it into her dream business. Each piece she creates is full of thought and the love.
The materials used are hand chosen as well for the uniqueness as well as their high quality, and when possible, locally sourced.
The name of Susan’s business pays tribute to her late, sweet dog Daisy. Daisy was 5 years old when she was adopted by Susan and her family. Quirky and fun loving from the minute they met her, they knew she would fit right in. It was quickly discovered that one of Daisy’s quirks was her love of fabric. Countless times when the family would come home, they would discover Daisy’s handiwork. Small, medium and large sized holes would grace blankets, throws, pillows and basically anything made of fabric. Rather than replace everything, Susan taught herself to sew. When a pillow was beyond repair, she learned how to sew a new cover. This sparked an interest and love of beautiful fabrics. Soon Susan was sewing not only throw pillows for her home, but custom made curtains, blankets and when her twin boys arrived, baby and toy organization items.
Friends and family would always encourage Susan to turn her passion into a dream and so Whimsy Daisy Designs was born. Grateful for that beautiful and gentle Daisy dog that came into her life, she could think of no better way than to thank her for the gift of her loyalty and being the reason behind her learning sewing, by naming her business after the dog that was full of Whimsy and love herself.
Susan is loving life in Squamish, BC with her husband and twin boys who keep her on her toes and let her see the world through their wondrous and curious big and beautiful blue eyes.
