This is what I've been up to and why I haven't been in blogland lately.

This photo was taken in Spearfish Canyon, South Dakota.
Taken on my birthday in September of this year.

I posted this picture with my new print mark.
It's a little big, but I'm still working on it.

I've been really busy lately because if you haven't guessed already,
I'm starting a new business. 
  I have decided to enter the competetive world of photography entrepreneurship.
I'm feeling very positive about my decision to go against naysayers who think it's impossible to make money in this economic time, and as a photographer or artist.
 I've been around the block a time or two and I've owned several businesses during my life so I know what it takes to make my business grow and be successful.. 
It's not going to be easy but anything of value is worth the hard work it takes to make it happen.

This is a non traditional image of Mt. Rushmore.
I like the pop art effect and  I'm very proud of how it turned out.

Although I'm still working on my printmark size, the look will be the same.
My logo however, is completed and I've even started advertising myself by putting it on a shirt.

I have a couple of variations with the logo, for example the one below is just slightly different.

I have obtained all of my licenses so I am legally open for business, however, I'm still working on some things such as my website, etc.

Once I get everything completed, I should be free to devote more time to blogging and reading blogs.
I have learned a lot over the past few weeks and I will be sharing many links with my readers regarding women and small business, etc.  Anything I find of interest that I think you will lke as well, will be posted here.

I want everyone to thrive no matter what area of life it pertains to, so I hope that I can achieve the goal of helping you grow just as I am helping myself to grow with all the resources that have been afforded me in the last few weeks.

Hope everyone had a happy halloween. 
I will be posting some pics soon.
Unfortunately, you will not see a pic of me even though I dresssed up.


  1. Wow, JarieLyn, that is so exciting. I wish you every success with your business. I really like the first logo! I look forward to seeing the website and hearing about your progress.

  2. Awesome JarieLyn! So happy for you. And I love the Rushmore piece.
