Meet Our Creator
Hello, my name is Carolyn Rene' Garrick. I'm a California Native and Mother of 3 - my joy and the center of my world! I love my family, friends (furry & not!), good books, learning, traveling and all things beautiful.
I believe in the potential of Humankind...that there is a love, uniqueness & beauty within each of us.
In my late teens and early 20's, I worked in the cosmetic and makeup industry while studying business in college. I lost my father to cancer at 19, got married at 23 and spent my final fall semester in night classes, working 2 part-time jobs. I took my finals and my son was born 2 weeks later...3 days after Christmas! I graduated with a BS in Business in 2001, walked the stage with a 6-month-old in tow, and turned my focus to raising my growing family. You could say pulling things off in a gracefully serendipitous yet chaotic manner is a running theme in my life...but I absolutely love being a mother!
A self-proclaimed "Jack of All Trades", over the years I've been a makeup artist, dabbled in home design, staging, weddings, event planning, and this year wrapped an international commercial as the production coordinator. I love to create and am always up for a new experience! Thus how Warmkins came into existence...
After the dissolution of my marriage, I spent 8 years as a single mother, with full physical custody. As any single mother knows, there's a lot of the craziness that comes from starting a new life and raising 3 children flying solo! My children always came first, and I hustled to support them while growing Warmkins organically and maintaining it's lifeblood in an incubated state until I felt my kids were able to handle the pressures that come along with mom in full fledged #bossmode.
I am recently married to the love of my life and my eldest child (and only son) is now a CA licensed teen driver (brace yourself LA!)....helping with daily taxing around town! Therefore, my ultimate goal and vision of building a "Warmkins World" full of Healing Hugs is Next Level On!!!
Help me share my creation with the world by following Warmkins on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, becoming a Sponsor for someone else in need, and of course by filling your own world with lovable, huggable, heatable and oh so adorable Warmkins!
