Happy New Year 2023

Happy New Year!  I took some time from Christmas to New Years off to be with my family and spend some unplugged time! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season.

I want to start off by saying thank you to all my vendors, clients, and customers for loving and supporting me and my business for another year!

I am grateful to continue doing things I love and adding to the opportunities and experiences I have! Each year I have grown so much in my business and personally.

This year was a great opportunity to expand and shift what I was doing and I jumped on it! I will continue to do wedding invitations while expanding and welcoming my Etsy store which provides collections of stationery items, wall decor, vow books, vellum wraps, and a variety of things that just felt good!

For a long time, I was offering everything and anything that came my way. When I started doing custom invitations I was then asked if I did any day of stationery items and I would say I do now and I was doing it all to make income and to figure out how I wanted to run my business and provide services.

After almost a decade of doing custom invitations, stationery products, and everything in between, I decided to make an eCommerce portion to my business to have passive income items and offer a large range of things that I could present to my customers. ( why have all these designs and products that no one gets to see or buy) I love creating things that are not mainstream and provide a custom service and end product because they are designed by me! I have made so many fun projects over the years that I have been able to recreate for Etsy and make versions to share with everyone!

So with that being said, I decided to design and add products of things I have fun creating because that is the beautiful choice in owning your own business! Do what feels good! I have spent a lot of time doing things that I thought I had to do but then after some reflecting and mindset shifting from @carleyzuercher who is amazing by the way! I transformed this year doing things I love into more functional ways and I am ready for 2023!

I am still designing wedding invitations, invitation packages, branding packages, or corporate event stationery for clients. I am taking a limited amount of wedding invitations or event packages this year so if you would like to create with me you can contact me through my email at jess@cloveandcedardesign.com or you can fill out the contact page from my website.

I am so excited to see what this year has in store for me and to make it my best year yet! I can’t wait to chat with you and happy planning for any event you are celebrating!
