Introducing Pitter Pattersons Boutique

You know me, I love dressing my girls up for just about anything.  If funds were endless they would have dozens of outfits and room decor for every holiday, season, and occasion.  So you know that I'm excited about spring pj's for my little ones.  I've teamed up with Suzzanne of Pitter Patterson's Boutique who graciously sent us personalized spring pj's.  They are so cute and great quality.  I absolutely love anything that is personalized.  At her shop you can find several great gift ideas including stuffed animals, dolls, blankets, and personalized clothing.

Check out Pitter Patterson's Boutique on Etsy.

 Emily put on the pj's and said they were as comfy as her blankie.  So the girls were snuggling up in their pj's.

Sisterly love...

Madi is a french kisser, lol!

I let the unthinkable happen and willingly let the girls jump on the bed.  I'm not going to lie seeing their faces was priceless.

Please tell us a little bit about yourself:
I am a wife of 10 years and a mother to my beautiful and smart 3 year old daughter. I have a A.S. in interior design, a B.S. in Mathematics with a minor in education and a M.A.Ed. in curriculum and instruction with a mathematics emphasis. I have have been a full time math teacher in a local public high school for 5 years. I started my business while I was off after having my daughter in 2013.
Please tell us a little bit about your company and how you got started:My grandmother taught me to sew when I was very young. However, I struggled with it and decided it wasn't the thing for me. As an adult, I would make baby gifts for friends and they would talk about how great they were and how much they loved and appreciated handmade gifts. I started making items more frequently after the birth of my daughter. I would post items that I made for her and friends started requesting to have items made for their children. Even if they didn't want something, they would suggest that I market my creations. Their support and encouragement lead me to open my Etsy store in July 2013. It was a slow start (it seems like it took 2 or 3 months) to get my first order. Over the last two years, I have had about 450 orders which is amazing. So much about my business and what I do has transformed as I have honed my craft. 

What has been your greatest lesson in running your own business?Success takes time and continual improvement as with endeavor. 

What’s your greatest tip for entrepreneurs?As I have completed more items, I have been able to create better listings and better listings have generated more sales. Don't be afraid to spend money on marketing. Whether it be props for photo ops or advertising. Advertising that is placed in the correct arena will be recouped very quickly plus gain your business exposure and exponential growth over time. 

What does your normal day look like?I work M-F as a teacher during the school year 7:15 to 4:30. I pick up my daughter from school. While we drive home, we talk about her day. I usually work in my studio from 8-10 pm M-F. I spend most of Saturday working also and Sunday is our family day. 

Who inspires you?My daughter is my main motivation and inspiration. I also have several groups on Facebook where I go to share creations. We inspire each other and are very encouraging and supportive of each other. Many of these lovely ladies and gentlemen also have online stores. It is very refreshing to have a good group of people with whom I can share and reciprocate ideas.
