New items on ETSY! Baby love

We’re so excited!! Last week we released some new items to our ETSY shop for our baby line! After having a girl, I learned about a ton of new “baby accessories” that exist and wanted to see what I could come up with on my own! I also started thinking about some fun things I could make for a first birthday party (crazy that our baby girl is closer to 1 than she is to a newborn already!). Here is a preview of some things we’ve released that we LOVE!

It’s our anniversary.

Hello friends. It’s been awhile. I feel like so much has happened in the last year or so, and I feel an update is necessary. As you know, we’ve been through a lot of change since the loveinamasonjar brand was started, nearly 3 years ago. I can’t believe it’s been 3 years.

What started as a new beginning after leaving my career, moving, and getting married, turned into something to just “maintain” because I loved it, while working part-time and then full-time. Then came our most important job of all, becoming parents, and life as we knew it is completely changed! Needless to say, throughout it all, this blog and many of the creative things I love to do have become last on my list.

BUT I’m excited to say that things are changing again, and I will soon have more time to CREATE again! After going back to work part-time for a few months with the baby, we’ve decided to take the leap of faith and move to one income so I can stay home and be a mommy to our favorite little girl. And hopefully with that have more time (if she would take a nap!) to do all the things I have been wanting to try and tell you about it on the blog.

So…to celebrate our 3 year anniversary in February, we will be launching some new items in our ETSY shop, working on our brand, and hopefully will have more tutorials and blog posts as we go along. We have LOTS of new ideas that we’ve been working on (think baby related – surprise, surprise) 🙂 and hope to be able to share them soon. Thank you for supporting us on this journey! I’m so excited to move forward and see what this will bring!

Blessings!

Fun times at the Holiday Hootenanny!

We had such a fun time with all the vendors at the Holiday Hootenanny last Saturday!  Katie and Faith of fox&bear did such a great job organizing the event, decorating and finding wonderful musicians! Thanks so much you two!!

It was our first time at loveinamasonjar to do an actual event, so we definitely learned a lot!  It’s a lot of work! Props to all of you who have a store or put up booths at different fairs!  Its hard to make sure you have enough items to sell, load everything up, set up shop, and then tear down after the whole day! I’m so thankful for my kind and patient husband who spent his whole day off helping me!  Here are some photos of the display.  I loved how it turned out!

loveinamasonjar photo shoot – the power of images

The more and more I do this ETSY / blog / pinterest / internet thing, the more I realize how important your images are. The better your photo, the more people will look at your blog or product. Unfortunately, I think sometimes people may not even read what you have to say and just look at your photo.

For my products I do what I can, but with a cannon elph or iPhone camera (and no skill), my photos are just okay… So in light of that, my dear friend and wonderful photographer Bethany Cissel (if you have not checked out her work you must – HERE) was kind enough to shoot a few of our products.

I can not describe how much I love these photos. Bethany is FANTASTIC. It is opening up a whole new world for me, feeling so much more professional and legitimate! Thanks Bethany!!
