Who Is Jean?

Hello! In May 2009, I left the cozy confines of a social, blogging website and set up camp at WordPress. It has been wonderful and enriching to blog outside of the box, so to speak.
 
You’ll find that although I love to shop, it is rare that I blog about it. Instead, I relay outings to Vegas, photoshop tips, obscure incidents, cocktail recipes, etc., all the while keeping it positive and light.
 
I enjoy the creative process of Podcasting, and try to upload new episodes to iTunes and YouTube frequently.
 
Iā€™m 45 years old, happily married wife and mother of 2 young daughters (ages 5 & 7). My husband and I run our own publishing business, producing 2 local magazines monthly. The hats I wear include Graphic Designer, Editor and Accountant.
 
Thank you for stopping by! Be sure to leave a comment, and I will visit your website as well.

  1. Hi Jean: My son used to work in Vegas in Graphic Design. He now lives in Nebraska and is a Graphic Designer. He still has friends in Vegas and he’s recently done a few things for his friends that started a new magazine.

    Thanks for wandering to my blog from Sweetiegirlz.

    Hi Jean, Thanks for stopping by my blog šŸ™‚ I bet you’re pretty busy running your own business – I know what that’s like…I feel like I’m going crazy trying to tie up all loose ends to launch my online store!

    Hi, the website is http://www.rissyjewels.com. It’s still under construction, but we are hoping to have everything finished very soon!

  5. Jean: Thanks for stopping by my blog – and COMMENTING! It’s always a thrill to get a comment (which I love but feels like pulling teeth to entice folks to do it!). I blame my less-than-compelling content. šŸ˜‰ Your site, by contrast, is wonderfully entertaining and useful. Great work!

  20. Holy shit. I’m 44(ish), married, have kids 5 & 7, blog, impersonate Spongebob (Squidward, actually) and do accounting.

    How cool are we?

    Alas, I don’t produce magazines. Yet.

  21. I love it! What a fun blog, and you seem like a really interesting woman. I admire anyone with graphic art talent.
    Blog on!

  22. We publish a Real Estate magazine and a Rental Guide.That is very cool that you had a full page layout in a magazine. We haven’t added cartoons, but you never know what the future holds for us in the way of publishing. We’re entering our 21st year with one magazine and our 3rd year with the other.

  23. I love your blog! I stumbled upon it and feel slightly intoxicated. It might be the liquor I’ve already consumed today, but that’s beside the point. Like I said, I love your blog!

    • Vodka and Ground Beef, thank you! I’m very flattered. Please continue to drink to enjoy this blog to its fullest. I’ll be right over to check out your site too. With a name like Vodka and Ground Beef, it HAS to be good! šŸ˜€
