Some other time, I'll tell you the story about how it is that I realized making and selling handcrafted jewelry was the answer to meeting that goal. Back to my point for the post today... Along the way, as my business started growing, I realized that I needed more professional looking business cards than the ones I had thrown together. So I contacted my dear friend, Mary Jo. She is a graphic designer with gobs of talent.

So MJ (oddly, I never really call her MJ, but that's the way I always write her name) created my first professional business card and Etsy banner. They were both fine for what I wanted at the time, but I recently decided that I want a new look once again. So this fall, I contacted MJ again and asked her to redesign new cards and banners. I had a fairly certain idea of what I wanted too. Have I mentioned that patience is most certainly one of her virtues?
Didn't she do a fabulous job?!
Here are more examples of her work:
Pictured below is the cover of a book (written by Elwood Yoder) that MJ and I collaborated on together. She was the graphic designer, I was the proofreader. She and I are thinking that we should go into business together! Currently we're collaborating on yet another book by Elwood.
