Every momma of boys that I know is always on the hunt for a great brand of clothes for them. If it's not a basic tee, it's hard to find shirts that "get it right". We want fresh, funny, quirky, modern, designs. It's a tall order it seems, but Catherine seems to be on point... thank GOODNESS! Not only are the designs perfect, but the tees and tanks are SO soft, so the boys not only look cute as ever in them, they FEEL good! That also makes my life so much easier ;) Catherine has worked tirelessly to build Stellar Seven and she has great motivation behind it! Her work ethic and vision is clearly shown in her product and I couldn't be happier for her success!! It's not easy being a mommy and running your own business! I'm so inspired by her and so many other wonderful women who have made it happen, and with flying colors at that! The boys have gotten so many compliments on their shirts already and I'm proud to tell people that ask, where they came from! Here's a few pics so you can see for yourself!

What's the meaning behind the name, "Stellar Seven"?
My son's name has been passed down, and he's the 7th generation with it. My sons full name is Martin Stellar Ruiz VII. Stellar Seven just sounded perfect together and it really represents my inspiration behind this business.
What made you decide to start your own business?
Fashion has always been my passion. So after having Stellar in 2012, I immediately became addicted with kids apparel- of course mainly with boys clothing- and started screen printing tees for him and it just blossomed overtime. Received many compliments on his "Hola Mama" tees, so with the support of my husband, Stellar Seven was created!
Who/what has been your biggest inspirations along the way?
No doubt, my son Stellar!! This is all for him!
What's something you've learned from your experience so far that you could share with us?
Ha, I've learned soo many things since opening back in November 2013. But the number one thing is patience. Take the time to do it right. I'm sure people have heard that before, but seriously that's the key! Running a business with young children is NOT an easy task by any means. But, at the end of the day, I usually feel accomplished in my goals for the day!
What is a big goal you have for the next year or so?
Start wholesaling and see my products out there..online boutiques and even retail stores would be amazing!
What is something super quirky about you?
Umm well I'm a huge Disney fan and I've been collecting Disney Trading Pins for about 10 years or so. I have a book at home full of pages of Disney pins. I know, I'm such a nerd! Hahaa!
What superpower would I have if I could have one.
Well I definitely would love to have super fast superpowers. Haha!! This way when I have to work in the office and screen print tees, I can do it in warp speed and be done in like 5 mins and not even be tired. Then I would have the rest of the day to spend with Stellar!
Thanks so much for sharing Catherine! It's really been such a pleasure getting to know you and featuring such a driven, genuine, hard working mompreneur! I love your advice to simply be patient when it comes to starting up a business and your super power choice would definitely be useful! I don't even know what Disney trading pins are so I feel completely out of the loop on that one, may have something to do with the fact that I live nowhere near a Disney park ;) I love what you're doing and can totally see you stocked in stores all over the place!! Keep up the great work! I'm excited to see you grow even bigger and see what you come up with next!!
