Founder

Debbie Cornelius – Wee Piggies has been life casting since 2001.   The whole thing began as an innocent attempt to preserve Debbie’s daughters’ handprints to give to her husband as a unique Father’s Day gift.

Being on maternity leave (and missing her sales and marketing career), provided Debbie the time and motivation to do all the research and development required to eventually (after much trial and error), produce an adorable, exact replica of her daughters’ tiny hands onto a piece of art she was proud to hang on her wall.

It was not long before Debbie’s friends (and then their friends) began asking if she could do their child’s handprints. Debbie knew instinctively there was a market for this product and that she could essentially turn this into the most perfect work-at-home job for herself and her family.

Soon afterwards, customers began coming to Debbie from hours away. In addition to telling her she had the most perfect ‘dream job’, they began asking Debbie to teach them how to do this so they too, could work from home.

She researched work-at-home opportunities and could find nothing even remotely similar to this. Debbie knew instantly this was what she wanted to do – to show Moms everywhere how to begin and manage a business of their own – how to find the balance in their lives which she had found in hers.

The choice to Franchise came from a belief of hers that if you are going to do something, you should do it right and give it all you’ve got!

Through much determination and assistance and support from her husband and family, she began working on what we believe is the most perfect work-at-home business a Mom could have.

Looking back, Debbie is so proud of how this business has grown, what it has developed into and mostly what it means to franchisees and their families.

Each of our more than 40 Mom-Preneurs contributes a little bit of themselves and their strengths into this business and this is what continues to make it flourish.

Thank you for your interest in our brand and we hope you help spread the word about this unique keepsake and work-at-home opportunity.

Sincerely,

Your friends at WP Creations by Wee Piggies”
