Yes, we do have a blog!

So, it seems it has been *ahem* nearly a full year since I made a blog post.  Truth be told, the only reason I finally sat down to write a post is because my ever-passionate photographer friend, Jen Carver, would not stop hounding me with texts and phone calls.  But I don't mean to sound disingenuous about it.  I love blogging.  I really miss it.  And, just for the record, maintaining a blog is a critical part of my business goals.

If you don't know, when I started Joyfolie I was simply a creative mom... no MBA, no business acumen.... and definitely not independently wealthy.  So, as Joyfolie spins off into this wild, exponential phase of growth, it's my vision to be transparent about the journey.  The more Joyfolie grows into a full, thriving business, the more empowered I feel.  And the more I feel a steadfast certainty that dreams can become reality, even with two little kiddos running around under foot.  It's my hope that if I share some of my story, maybe it will inspire someone else to take a risk, a plunge... not settle.

Well, I would like to say that Joyfolie is to the point where we are adequately staffed, but the truth is we are growing... fast.  White knuckle fast, in fact.  Now, if you are thinking, "Are my shoes going to ship on time?"  Don't worry.  We have that part covered :-)  But blogging, social media, instagram... I have been doing that personally and obviously not very well.  But we will get there!  And, today, life is good.  Sometimes I am sitting at my computer, piles of samples and sketches strewn across my desk, the kids running around chattering away, my team working full tilt beside me and I stop... and just thank God for this extraordinary life.

So, if you are missing the DIYing, photo editing tips and all that, we will work our way back.  Maybe not today, but soon!

The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested
to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.

I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!
