Live Life as if it were Created for You - Maya Angelou
That's me. A mom of 2. A wife to a hard working husband. An animal rescuer. A mini farmer. And a determined daily Pure Barre workout fanatic.
Here is my history...
Over 15 years ago, I quit my job as a veterinary technician. After majoring in Zoology, I switched gears from the goal of going to veterinary school and decided to start my own business.
My first business was Tenderpaws, an in home cage less Doggie Daycare and Pet Sitting business. During this time, I dabbled in some photography which inspired my creative side. We were a successful 10 year business and ended up with many valued relationships even to this day. After my children were born, I decided to close the doggie daycare and concentrate on being a mom.
During my "down time", my sister and I created a business called Dog Italia. It was a resale retail business with an Italian flare and love for pets. Dog Italia lived for 3 years before we dissolved the business.
I mentioned that I was an animal rescuer, right? Well, then Jaynie's Love was born. A business "inspired by the love of a dog and the simple things in life". Jaynie's Love is a place where all animal lovers can shop and take away a special keepsake from an animal that they hold close to their heart. I sand-carve custom paw prints, tiny toes and custom designs into barware/glassware. So, if you have made it this far and I have intrigued your interest, please go read "Jaynie's Story" (grab a tissue) and learn how this once in a lifetime dog changed my life. Then have fun shopping for a friend or even yourself!
Now this...Sharlee Fleshman - Graphic Designer. I have always wanted to get my name out there and advertise my services for logo design and photography. And I am not really sure why it has taken me so long except for maybe, it was just not time for this avenue of my business adventures to take off. And maybe I wasn't ready. In June of 2018, I was offered a position to help manage a young and upcoming country artist's social media, create a website design, logo and marketing ads. I have also done various freelance work on logos and website designs for small businesses. So many have asked, why have I not made this a business. And I finally said, why not!
I offer affordable, custom creations for small businesses/artists, so they can pursue their professional journey with confidence and stand out from the rest. Logo design and website design are just the beginning stages of your promotional and branding goals. I would love to be the one that starts paving that road for you.
