About Mariella
I am a mom of an almost 4yr old and been married for 5 years. I have been crafty for as long as I can remember. Swarovski DIY cell phone anyone? After some life changes relocated my family back to our hometown (best day ever), I began to freelance paint to pass that in between naptime break. My husband and family pushed me to start my own business so that I could continue to stay home with my then 1 yr old and make my labor lucrative.

I worked in high end retail sales and ops all of my post-collegiate life in Palm Beach and Miami. I was always techy and had hopes of one day having my own website. I was able to apply all those learned skills and lessons to my business from the get go. A few paint mishaps here and there from a curious toddler and a converted garage into a playroom/workshop later, I am still loving it. I am thrilled to still be in business and hope to continue to be for years to come wherever life takes my family and I.

What special skill, talent or gift would you like to give back to the community?

I like to make pretty colorful things and pretty colorful things usually brighten up someones day. I love seeing my work become a part of a brides wedding week or bachelorette festivities. I know the market is saturated but I think my customer service is bar none and I always aim to please.

What is your biggest business challenge right now?

Funding & Finance

What do you want to achieve in 2018, personally and professionally?

I can get a little carried away with thinking new items will be a hit. I have learned to stick to my basics this year and will carry that lesson into 2019.

What is one thing that would be game-changing for your business right now?

The swipe up feature on instagram for those with less than 10K followers!

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

I was recommended to join from a family member who was friends that part of the community. She thought it would be great for me to network a bit and possibly meet some other boss moms that I could partner with for events and trunk shows. My business is mostly supported by gift shoppers and brides to be so at times it can be difficult to bring back repeat customers. I hope to learn from other mamas while bringing some pretty details to others lives and chic up flower girls :)
