May's Featured Customer - Blossom Vinson of JustBabyz

 Please help me in welcoming
Blossom Vinson of JustBabyz.

Tell us a little bit about yourself and your business.  
I have a e-commerce store that I started named JustBabyz and an Etsy shoppe called JustBabyz

Where are you located?
I live on farm in Warner Robins, GA.
What was your background prior to starting your business?
Prior to starting this e-commerce store I did affiliate marketing and built a lot of niche websites along with Dog Beds E-commerce store then I did some online, social media and mobile marketing for local businesses. I had couple of e-commerce stores always selling other people's products. I was not passionate about dogs and could not do all the research to blog and local businesses they had hard time understanding online and social media marketing. Currently I just do just Mobile marketing and consulting. 

What got you started in your business?
I had always wanted to have my own product and would always look at someone who can create literally anything with a WOW and I had no idea I was creative until after I had my third child, Anaiah. 

I guess she triggered some part of my brain. After I had my baby I realized fabric relaxed me and every time I saw a piece of fabric I had these ideas.  I sewed my first outfit ever Thanksgiving outfit and then realized that I had found something that I love. 

What inspires you to create?
My inspiration comes from my children. 

Tell us a bit about your drive and purpose, your vision for your business.
My sweet spot is online marketing.  I just love it.  I've always wanted to have my own products, and I did not want to settle. 

What do you feel makes your work unique? 
I combine patterns together with applique.  

What’s your favorite piece from your current inventory? Any all time favorites? 
Some of my favorite inventory is my Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentines, & Easter Outfits. 

Where do you see your business in a year? Or where would you like to see it?
In a year I would want people to recognize JustBabyz as a brand.  I would like to see lot of JustBabyz clothes become part of keepsakes in many families.

What words of wisdom do you have for readers who are considering starting their own work at home business?
Find your sweet spot.  Don't give up.  Build on your failures.  Have an accountability partner or join a master mind group. Always do one thing a day that will propel your business.

As a customer of Whimsical Fabric, what is your favorite thing about our store? 
I love the Sew-Alongs at Whimsical Fabric.  I have learned a lot.  I am a silent member.  Even though I don't comment much I read every single post by everyone in the group and make notes of tips and suggestions.  

What is your favorite item purchased from us?
I think I have bought most of the patterns I see in the sew-along group.

Anything else you would like to share?
I will be starting a blog in June for moms just like me who want to see growth.  It will be about marketing, business, and balance.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity.
