As parents of twins, we all know the unique struggles they can bring. From pregnancy to parenting, dealing with two can truly mean double the trouble and even twice the heartbreak. I was reminded of this in a most unfortunate way when a fellow twin mom told me about Addi and Cassi. Addi and Cassi Hempel are 4 1/2 year old identical twin sisters. They have been diagnosed with a rare and deadly disease that is almost unheard of. It is known as Niemann Pick Type C (NPC) disease and it is often called the "Childhood Alzheimer's." You can only imagine what courage these little girls must have! They even have their own special site where you can learn more about this devestating disease and how you can help.

I was so happy to have mother of twins, Deb Damboise as our first featured mom. She has a unique business and some really cool decorating ideas. I hope you will all enjoy my interview with her...
2) HOW DID YOU DECIDE ON THIS BUSINESS?
Well, my husband is an engineer and he's always got something he's designing in his mind. He started telling me about a machine he wanted to build to cut kitchen cabinets and molding, among other things. The more he talked about it, I started thinking about the crafty things I could have him cut for me. :) As we discussed it more and researched it, we found that we had a unique product by cutting letters and shapes. Our shapes in particular are incredibly popular ranging in designs from flowers and dresses to robots and airplanes. We can also create custom designs. If someone has a theme for their child's room or nursery, we can create something truly unique.
3) WHAT DO YOU ENJOY MOST ABOUT THIS BUSINESS?
Definitely, that I get to be home with my little ones. I feel very fortunate for that. I also enjoy working with our customers. I love seeing what people create with our products. I keep a blog and many of our customers are other bloggers who post their finished projects on their blog and e-mail me the links or send me photos to check it out.
4) DO YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT ANY SPECIAL PROMOS, PRODUCTS OR DEALS?
5) TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOU, YOUR FAMILY, YOUR TWINS AND HOW YOU MANAGE IT ALL.
My name is Deb Damboise and I've been married to my best friend Steven for almost eight years. We live in a small town in New Hampshire that's quiet and private, but still only ten minutes from Target. After years of trying to get pregnant we were finally blessed with twins, Steven and Isabella who are almost 7 months. I can hardly believe they're almost 7 months. I know I'll be saying that every month until they are 1 year old (actually I'll probably say that for years after too!) They truly are my joy.
I guess I don't always feel like "I manage it all". I do my best each day. I look at it that of course, my babies are my number one priority, then comes the business and I'm afraid to say, my house comes last. But, when you have two smiling faces looking at you, a little bit of a messy house is OK with me!
6) ANY ADVICE OR INSPIRING WORDS FOR OTHER MOMS?
I'm sure many of you could give me advice seeing as I'm a new mama! Enjoy every moment. I try not to rush things along too much. Everyone says it goes by so fast. I find myself wondering what their little personalities will be like, but then I step back and remember to just enjoy the moment and not rush it.
7) HOW DO OTHERS CONTACT YOU FOR MORE INFORMATION?
Please come visit our blog to check in on what we've got going on. You'll no doubt see pictures of my little ones too. www.sayitwithletters.blogspot.com Our website: www.sayitwithletters.com You can also e-mail me directly at email@example.com Thank you so much for featuring us! We have several twin mom customers and I keep passing on the website links to them.
Thanks for reading Twin Stuff! Until next month....
All the best, Kellie Asaro (site founder)
