The new site is here. Also: I’ve missed you!

Hi, you guys! HI!!!! Man, it has been TOO long. And can I just say, in my best Eminem impression (which is not good at all) “It feels so good to be baaaaacckkkk!” I can’t tell you how many blog posts I started in the last six months. They have been sitting as drafts, unfinished, lonely.

But I miss blogging. I do. I have not been able to devote the time to it that I used to when I started three four (FOUR??!) years ago. But now that my new site is done (if you’re viewing this in a reader click over here and check it out!) I really want to get back into blogging occasionally. I say occasionally loosely. But I don’t think blogging more often than once every few months is an unreachable goal. We will see. :p


I am so so happy that this site is live though. It has been a work in progress for literally over a year. The weight that is off my shoulders (and my designer’s (aka: my husband’s)) is huge. Can I just give an extra shout out to Jordan for all the time he devoted to this for me? I am not, um, the easiest to work with when it comes to, well, my business, my BABY. Mad props to him.

It feels good not only to have this scratched off our to-do list, but to have my own site that best represents JAA! I’m excited to be able to combine my blog with my e-commerce site and give buyer’s the opportunity to purchase directly through me. Don’t get me wrong, I love Etsy, obviously. But the opportunity to have complete control over my shop, and my business, has been such a long time coming. Today is definitely a day worth celebrating for me!

Speaking of celebrating… (I’m so good at transitions)… while I was thinking of ways to celebrate this launch, I thought of asking my friends to help me spread the word. But the more I thought about the best way to approach that, the more I realized, I just want to spread the word of celebrating each other. I think that often times it’s hard to “toot your own horn” but sometimes…we deserve that celebration. Whether it’s celebrating a web launch, or having the self-control to say no to that fourth slice of pizza (let’s be honest). We all have something to celebrate.

I thought it would be fun to celebrate each other, together. So today I’m encouraging you to share a recent accomplishment that you are proud of on Instagram with the #celebrateeveryone. You are even welcome to regram the celebratory photo I shared today. I’m hoping that it will create a “happy hype” that will encourage inspiration, celebration and SUPPORT across Instagram.

I think it’s so important to show support throughout our community. I am forever grateful for the support you all have shown Julie Ann Art over the years. Thank you! xo JA

    So excited for you! It looks gorgeous! Etsy is fantastic but it seems like everyone who grows from it has to expand eventually. I recently got back to blogging too, for the same reason. Also, a site redesign helped me too. 🙂 I love batch ordering cards from you because they’re always the one people want to pass around the gathering!
