Bloom where your Planted

I am working on a new philosophy (at least for me), being more optimistic - AKA blooming where I am planted. Right now I am transplanting myself out of my comfy little niche of a Creative Memories consultant to my own business. You know the one, where the only person to blame for my failing is me. I am excited but scared to death at the same time. I have transplanted myself a couple of times before. From working in the corporate world to being a SAHM that was scary too, but after 12 years I have the hang of that pretty much too. I will also figure out this other too. At least all of the rules will be mine, which should help quite a bit. I know where I can advertise, and what all I can do. Only me and the IRS can interfere. Hey everybody have a great week.

EBuzz it has been a month

Sorry about that, but it has been a productive month, I am almost ready to officially open "Photography by Jaylene". My webpage is on hold while my webmaster (aka Dad) is in the hospital, but I shall have my temporary one up very soon. My logo is almost totally finished and I have 3 sittings in the next 2 weeks. I have also closed down my Creative Memories Business, I will not really miss it, but I am looking forward to being one of their best customers. for those of you still checking daily even without updates thanks, and hey leave a comment.

Capturing Tomorrows Memories Today

Funny, I have had roughly 170 visitors since I started publishing the blog. Yesterday I asked 8000 of my nearest and dearest on a scrapbooking board I frequent (heck I live there) for their opinions, told them to come check the announcement out here. this was roughly 24 hours ago (compared to the sight being open since November 15ish). In that 24 hours, I have had another 300+ hits to this site. Thank you all for your opinions (published on the board) Funny thing is the choice ended up being the one I threw out there as a joke. Ah well, such is life.

New Year = Time for Change

First of all if this is here twice, I am sorry something wierd happened a bit ago. Second of all, even though I am a little early I wanted to wish each of you a happy and blessed 2006. I wish for each of you safety, health and happiness for the next year.

Now to let you all in on a little secret, I am starting 2006 off with a major leap of faith. I am going to start my own photography business. I have thought about this off and on for 2 years and I think now is the time. We are hoping to have the legal work done by the end of the month and my website up by mid January. Wish me luck and please comment and leave my your opinion on some of the choices we have for names:

Treasured Memories Photography
Treasured Moments Photography
Cherished Moments Photography
Timeless Memories Photography
Timeless Treasures Photography
Tomorrows Memories Photography
Tomorrows Treasures Photography
Photography by Jaylene

We are in the process of checking these names out, so there is no telling if they are even available, but they are my favorites (all but the last one)

Once again have a happy and blessed new year
