Meet The Maker
Thank you for stopping by The Mouse Boutique, my name is Sujey (sue-HEY) and I'm the face behind TMB!
The Mouse Boutique officially opened it's online doors on Etsy, August 1st, 2016, eventually leading to our very own website in 2017. I've been blessed with an out pour of love and support from both customers and fellow shops ever since. The shops story all began when one of my best friends, Ali, was getting married and made custom princess ears for the entire bridal party. This sparked a DIY project idea for me to do ears for my sister, nieces, and nephew on our first trip as a family to Disney World in the summer of 2016. After that trip, my gears starting turning.
Truth is, I struggle with severe anxiety and a number of other mental health issues and I wanted to find something that can help take my mind off things, something to escape my thoughts, something that would fuel my passion and become an outlet or getaway from my own mind. I have my career in healthcare where I have a passion for helping others but I wanted something for myself, something that was mine. I've always loved DIY crafts and I'm pretty creative so this was a perfect project. Once I saw how much I enjoyed making ears (and that I was actually pretty good at it), it became a hobby, then a passion, and eventually a successful small business. Now, I'm a creator and make magic for a living and I wouldn't trade it for the world!
My shop resides in sunny Miami, FL, only a short 4 hours away from the happiest place on Earth! The shop has its own little mascot Louie, our little Maltese and my only fur baby who likes to make me take breaks from working on orders to give him all my attention (which I LOVE doing).
Although mouse ears are my niche, in the shop you'll also find a selection of pin boards, pins, bows, and seasonal jerseys for the Disney loving kid in all of us! I'm so grateful for each and every mousie and fellow shop who has supported my journey through the years, thank you for allowing me to do what I love!
