A Few Announcements

Hi guys! I have a few random things to talk to you about so I thought I’d put them all into one post of “announcements.” Let’s start with the most exciting news.

In February, Urban Outfitters asked me to send them a few samples of my cards. I’ve spent a few anxious weeks going back and forth with them, and now I’m happy to announce that a little bit of JAA will be hitting 140 Urban Outfitters stores soon! I’m still finding it hard to believe. We went to the movies last week and walked by an Urban Outfitters store. Of course my friends had to make a remark or two as we passed and I couldn’t help but smile. It hasn’t completely sunk in yet but it’s definitely kind of amazing. :] I was prepping their order over the weekend.

On top of that, I’ve been at work to get some new JAA products in the shop! I’m really excited to announce that I have three new items that will be hitting the shop in the next week or so (and none of them are cards!). To celebrate the new products, the day I add them to my shop I’m also going to send out a newsletter with a one-day-only exclusive coupon code. So if you haven’t subscribed yet, you can enter your e-mail address under “Subscribe To My Mailing List” in the left column of my blog. It’s a good way to hear about the latest JAA products and get exclusive coupon codes! ;]

Next up, I’m now accepting sponsors for the month of April. (April already?!) So if you’re looking to advertise your blog or business, take a look at my advertising page to see if we’re a good fit. I have a couple Large spots still available! And don’t forget, I offer a past sponsor discount to returning sponsors. Just e-mail me!

And of course, you probably heard by now that Google Reader is coming to you end. I’m definitely bummed because it was my reader of choice. Second choice would have to be Bloglovin. They have made it extremely easy for you to import all of your Google Reader subscriptions here. If you already have a Bloglovin account you can follow me here. I have also heard that some are transitioning to Feedly. I have not tried Feedly out yet but they also offer a seamless transition for adding your Google Reader subscriptions. They also both have mobile apps. Test them out, pick what works best for you and don’t forget to follow JAA!

I am so thankful for those of you who have subscribed to JAA and I hope that you will stick around after this change! xo JA

Congratulations! I also saw that you have P.O. box keys now! How official of you. 😉 Does that mean you’re staying in Cali? I remember you mentioning awhile back that, when your lease was up, that you guys were going to travel.
