Kelly Jane Creative
One snowy Saturday morning a few years back, I sat down at my computer and thought I’d open up an Etsy shop. Why not? I wanted to see what would happen. So I researched and designed and skipped meals… and that night I had my shop up, 13 listings, and one sale under my belt. I can’t even describe the moment when I realized that someone had bought something I made only 3 minutes after I had listed it. I screamed! About a month later, I was laid off. Instead of going job hunting, I poured all my energy into my Etsy shop and haven’t looked back. To say that Etsy has changed our lives is an understatement.
The shop has gone through some changes over the years. The initial focus of my shop was on branding, logo design, and Etsy graphics. I still do those designs but that has moved to another shop and here, I focus on clip art.
My inspiration comes from my surroundings. In the pictures above, you’ll see our farm. It’s old, abandoned, neglected… and the most peaceful place on the planet. We’ll be moving there this summer and what a challenge that will be! I suppose I should back up a bit and tell you who we are.
I’m Kelly, but you’re a smart cookie so you probably guessed that. I live in the middle of Minnesota with my guy Marty and our girl Ayden and of course, the dog, Astro. Marty has a construction business, Ayden is 16 and busy being a teenager, and Astro is spoiled rotten. As for me, I love what I do so much that I can’t call it work. Life is good when you look forward to Monday mornings.
Right now we live in a house that Marty built about 10 years ago, so moving into a smelly old spidery house with cheap paneling and avocado green carpet will be quite the change, but very worth it. Underneath all that nasty paneling are the original white oak logs from 1892… along with a few bats, I’m sure. But hey, this is Minnesota and bats eat mosquitoes so it’s all good! All of the buildings need repair but the 10 acres is surrounded by trees, there’s a pond, and lots of wild flowers. It’s a cozy bit of wilderness that hasn’t been tamed. I think I love it so much because it reminds me of the places Calvin and Hobbes would play, minus the cliffs.
One thing about me, I love wonderful surprises and unexpected treasures… like that peony in the picture above, hiding in the tall grass. So if you’ve read this far, you deserve a reward.
