You may have already come across Baby Bijou Designs on Instagram or Facebook, but I thought it was time I officially introduced you here. To do so, I thought it would be fun to answer a series of questions about my business below.
1. For starters, what exactly is Baby Bijou Designs?
Baby Bijou Designs is a company I started that is named after my daughter’s nickname, Baby Bijou (more about the fun story behind her nickname can be found by clicking here!). I create original designs for baby clothing and nursery decor, often incorporating my love of travel and my experiences from living in Japan into my work.
2. What has been your favorite part of having your own company so far?
I think I actually have a few favorite parts so far. The first would be that I can work my schedule around my daughter’s schedule, and also that I get to be creative in my business. The second would be all of the collaboration that is possible with Baby Bijou Designs. I do a lot of custom work, which has included everything from custom-designed clothing (for babies, children and adults) to custom frames, mats, prints and more. It is really fun to be able to not only personalize designs I create, but to work with others to make their original ideas into a reality as well.
3. What are some of your goals for your business?
My biggest goal for Baby Bijou Designs is just to continue having fun with it. It is super exciting to create items I love, and even more exciting when I get feedback that shows other people also enjoy my work. Getting to see babies wearing clothing I create just makes me swoon, though I must admit I’m especially biased when my daughter dons Baby Bijou Designs! Eventually I’d like to save for my own camera so that I can learn to take better pictures for both my business and for my blog, but in the meantime I just hope to keep getting the word out there that Baby Bijou Designs is here and that I’m always up for collaboration!
4. Where can we learn more about how you got started and why you chose to work from home and for yourself?
