This week’s Mamapreneur is Ciara Dowling!
Ciara is a style obsessed, husband challenged, mother of 3 girls. She’s also the creator of The Night Sky.
Ciara’s husband travels a lot. When putting their children to bed a common theme always cropped up. “I miss Dada” So Ciara would open the drapes and say “He’s looking at the same stars.” Without fail it would settle them down and inspire beautiful bedtime stories.
Then it dawned on her that there is a primal and eternal power in looking at the stars. It’s with us when we are born. They are there for every moment. Ciara wanted to capture that, and The Night Sky was born.
There are some things in our lives that you can’t commemorate with just a photo. Whether it is the death of a loved one, a first kiss, the day you met your person, or the birth of your child; these are the things that deserve a tribute like no other. The Night Sky is a star mapping company that makes memories to last a lifetime.
Ciara has made the process of using The Night Sky perfectly simple. You put in a date and a location and the star map from that very day is brought up. The Night Sky uses a combination of NASA data and star libraries to make sure the layout of the stars is 100% accurate (you can then register the star through the OSR star finder online if you so chose and download their app so you can see where your star is all the time), and after that you choose whatever you want your star to be named, what you want the location to be, and background color. You can also choose whether you have a grid or constellations on the map, which can be one, the other, neither, or both. We discovered The Night Sky on Instagram and ordered a star, and wow were we just stunned with the print. The art work is perfectly detailed, clean, and the perfect way to honor any one or any life event.
The Night Sky is a beautiful addiction to any home and makes an even better gift.
