Meet Janee! The lady behind Yellow Bird, Yellow Beard! She writes an awesome blog – which I could spend hours scrolling through –SERIOUSLY!! There is a bit of whimsy with a pop of lovely scattered throughout it (sort of like the items in her shop!!) Speaking of her shop- Janee sells lovely handmade garland and plush alphabets that makes me swoon. The colors, the textures, and the possibilities.
Who or what encouraged you to start your Indie Biz?
I wanted a creative outlet to meet new people and to share my work.
What is the hardest challenge you have as an Indie Biz owner?
Attracting people to my blog/shop. Also, making sure my voice on the internet is my own. I always want to be as genuine as possible.
What helpful advice can you offer to other Indie Biz owners?
Make connections! Get out there and meet people. You will find some really great friends and you will spread the word about your business.
What is the ultimate goal you have for your Indie Biz?
I would love for Yellow Bird, Yellow Beard to be my life long full-time job. Maybe I'll even have my own little boutique some day!
in full bloom: helping grow your indie biz!
Time to link up YOUR Indie Biz!!
Don't forget to head over to Neathering Our Fest to see her shop feature too!
Every other week Skye and I will both be featuring a hand-picked handmade shop on our blog and hosting a linky party for you to link up your shop! We want to help spread the word about what you are doing and help grow your sparkly slice of the internet. Since we are co-hosting this shindig - if you link your shop up here it will also show up on Skye's blog post. Here are a couple of guidelines for linking up:
- Link up shops/shop platforms only. Please do not link to a specific item, a blog post about your shop, your blog (unless your shop platform is hosted on your blog) or anything other than your beautiful shop.
- After you link up, visit two or three of the other shops that have linked up and tweet, pin, or facebook about your favorite item from their shops!
- If you have a blog and want to help spread the word, feel free to add this button to your sidebar:
