About Banana Moon Studio:
April is happily married to her best friend. They knew each other for a few years, and then dated for only 2 weeks before getting engaged. To top off their whirlwind romance they got married 6 months later in 2003. In April’s house you will find four daughters that are all pretty close in age. April finds herself very blessed to be at home with them full-time and to homeschool them.
You might wonder, how did you come up with the name Banana Moon Studio? April spent a day pondering what to call her business. What name would be interesting and true to her personality? While doing all or that soul-searching, a favorite memory came to mind. When April’s oldest daughter, was maybe 18 months old, they were driving home from her parents’ house late one evening. There was a yellow crescent moon in the sky. Her daughter pointed out the window at the moon and said, “Beena”, her word at the time for banana. It wasn’t in a really excited voice, she was just calmly pointing out that there was a banana in the sky. When April remembered that later, it hit her that “Banana Moon” was a perfect name! At first April considered “Banana Moon Stitches” or “Banana Moon Stitchery,” but after an hour or so of thinking on it, I had it, “Banana Moon Studio”…Perfect!
