On the 23rd, I made the decision to put my ceejaybags on vacation mode until January 5th, so I could devote some time to my beloved children. I truly believe it was the best idea I've had in a while. I felt as if Iwas in a whirlwind, with a new job, the holiday rush, and a busy Etsy shop all pulling me in different directions. All I really wanted was to stop, relax and spend time with my kids.
Being away from the shop (and the constant promoting, tweeting, etc. that goes along with it) doesn't mean I'm not thinking about ceejaybags! Just the opposite, in fact. I'm working on some great new bag designs, and also thinking about a look for my shop and blog. I'm looking for a graphic designer who can help me create a recognizable "brand" for my business, and I'll hopefully be able to have everything ready before I open back up in January. I have an idea of what I want, but I'm not exactly sure how to go about getting it! I've been doing some research, and reading lots of blog posts on the topic, but I'm still not sure. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated! Wish me luck!
