Business Owning Beauties: Sew Stinkin' Cute

I love small businesses!!!  And selling fabric, we get to meet a lot of small business owners, generally ones who sell clothing.  Today, we chatted with April Smith of Sew Stinkin' Cute.  Here's what she had to say about her life as a WAHM.

Let's start with a little introduction to who you are, your family, your boutique name, etc.
My name is April Smith and I'm the owner of Sew Stinkin' Cute. I have an amazing husband Tim and two precious boys Stephen 17 and Elijah 3.

What was the inspiration for you to start your boutique?
Elijah was born with a Lymphatic Malformation and to date has had 14 surgeries. When he was very small a friend sent me a message with Psalm 139. I printed that and it hung above Elijah's bed for a year and a half and every night when i laid him down I would recite that scripture over him. He is the inspiration behind me starting Sew Stinkin' Cute.

What has been the biggest challenge you've faced since starting a business?
Trying to balance being a wife, mom and business owner. Trying to find the key to make it all work harmoniously.

What is your favorite thing about being a business owner?
My favorite thing about being a business owner is being able to be home with my boys. I also love the friendships that have blossomed from getting to know my customers and other ladies in the boutique business.

Do you have a favorite item that you are currently selling? 
This spring the Butterfly dress by Tie Dye Diva in the fabulous Kumari Garden fabric was my hottest seller!

What is in store for the future of your boutique?  Where would you like to see yourself in 5 years?  10 years?
I absolutely love what i do and would love to see the boutique grow but not too big. LOL! I love the smallness of it and the warmth and friendships we have being a small business!

Here are a few more of the "Sew Stinkin' Cute" items that April has made.  What a talented seamstress!  We wish her many years of success in business!
