Welcome to my website and blog! It’s a work in progress. I’ve had this space since 2013 so there’s plenty of posts from a long time ago if you want to check them out. I took a long break to focus on raising our kids and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’m excited to be back to share my Etsy Business, tips and tricks, share my favorite tools, things I’m working on, and more. We’ll be Empty Nesters in a couple years so it’s the perfect time for me to create my own little Empire!
A couple of my favorite things about having a having a website and blogging is having a timeline to look back on to see how things have grown and changed over time, and to connect with people, make friends, and share ideas. I’ve missed being here!
I opened 9th&Mayne on Etsy in March 2021, read about why here. I’ve been having so much fun growing and learning how to run a creative business. It’s exciting. I’d love to create cute and fun things forever! It’s a joy to design everyday and play with all my favorite toys! I feel very blessed to have the opportunity to create and share what I learn.
New items are listed in my shop often, check it out! All my illustrations, products, and designs, are hand drawn by me. I’d love for you to share in the comments what you think of my Etsy shop!
Creating cute and fun things is the best therapy for me. I don’t know where I’d be without it! I hope I can inspire others to make something beautiful, to keep going, even in times of trials.
