Trying to set up a business online

7 Nov

It has been an exciting week setting up Just J on Facebook. I am now trying to use my blog site as a place to show items to sell and also be able to pay by credit card.  We’ll see what happens with that idea.

I have several orders already but not really from my Just J site. Mainly friends coming by and friends who know what I do. Hopefully something will begin happening through FB but I can be patient and see which direction I really need to go. I think there is different way to approach the Facebook direction.

The one great thing about having the business is it keeps me focused to get my items sewn and done. I have had to order many fabrics online which adds to my time waiting for them to arrive and also my mistakes of not paying attention to what the fabric is made of and I have received 2 orders of fleece totally not needed. I cancelled one order and they still sent it. Another company cancelled my order so it gets confusing. We’ll see if that will even out. The down side of living where the need to order online is necessary.

Heading to Houston tomorrow for the AQS Houston Quilt Show. Excited to be there and be with my friend Alicia. She is the greatest buddy because we will talk about a trip of some kind and the next thing you know we will do it. Love buddies like that. It’s a quick trip so Sunday I will be busy getting back to work.

That’s it for now.


Exciting news!!!!

Many of you know that I have wanted to go back into business with many different directions. Some involve sewing, some involve painting, some involve travel and some involve just connecting with me and also some tips on different things that happen in our lives. My tips are from personal observations only because I am not a Doctor, nurse, therapist, nail tech :), or anything else that requires a college education. My information is from personal travels, personal triumphs, personal failures, personal painful and sad situations. I love blogging and sharing and connecting. Jbird65 of 2018 has been an eyeopening year for me. I’m braver, less over reacting, have let go of past issues that have plagued me and I can talk about how I have achieved these goal. When I turned 65 and I decided I know longer wanted to let personal emotions stop me from being the person I want to be. It is possible for all of us and I am here to tell you that I have inner happiness that I don’t believe I have ever had in my life.  I’ve attended workshops, retreats and pastoral conversations. Much of my happiness are from my friendships with all of you and how much you all mean to me. My business will be located here and also on Facebook called “Just J”. I will be sending invitations asking you to join the page on FB so don’t think that it is a hack please. Look forward to this new adventure.
