After far too long of no crafting, I'm ready to "get my hands dirty" again. I miss it too much!

Life has taken over and left me with very little time to play with my stamps, papers, ribbons, etc. My goal this summer is to get back to it. All my supplies look at me so sadly and beckon me to come play. I've neglected them long enough, so I'm going to do my best to make them feel loved again!

A while back, I opened an Etsy shop and made a few sales. Then I started getting local orders and in keeping up with those, let the shop fall to the wayside. Then I no longer had time to work on anything crafty, and it all came to a screeching halt.

When I opened the Etsy shop, I had to create a name for my business. I came up with JMDesigns because JMD are my initials. What I didn't take into account was that it was a fairly common name used for others, but more as JM Designs. So, I was out of luck when it came to trying to get a user name with Etsy, an email, or a URL. Therefore, I had to add the "4U" extension for all of those. But now they are mine, and I'm ready to use them to try to get my business going again.

I was posting (not very regularly) at my craft blog. I've decided to stop posting there, and post here instead. This way, my business name is on my blog as well.

I'm hoping to get back to creating next week. Until then, I'm going to be bringing some of my posts from my old craft blog to this one. They won't be new to the few people who actually read that blog, but that's ok. I'll have new things to add shortly.

Bear with me if there are any kinks on this blog...I know that currently it is still in transition to my "dot com," and it seems to be causing a few things to not work properly. Hopefully it will all be good once the transition is complete.'s to a fresh start on the business journey. Wish me well!


  1. can't wait to see all you create. I'm sure it will be AWESOME! If you ever want to get together and craft together let me know. My stamps have waay too much dust on them.

  2. Thanks Andrea! We totally need to do that! And soon!
