Hi Just Lovely Things Readers! I'm Jessica, creator of jessicaNdesigns & I'm thrilled to be here on Heather's Blog! She is such an inspiration to me! As I am sure you are, I am loving Heather's Love Your Business Series & am happy to answer some of her questions relating to my business! 

Who are 3 blogs you are loving right now: Besides Just Lovely Things...I love sitting down with a cup (or two) of coffee and reading A Beautiful Mess, Wonder Forest, Gussy Sews....and so many more! 

When feeling discouraged about your business, what are ways you find to pick yourself up: Most of the time the best thing for me is taking a break...stepping away from the computer and doing something totally unrelated to my business. Reading, watching a movie, getting out of the house, catching up with my DVR. I find that most of my inspiration comes when I do this!  I have a hard time with balance, I could seriously sit at my computer 24/7 doing things for my business, but obviously I can't, and I don't want to!

What has been your greatest accomplishment in your business: I think for me, it is actually being successful at this, bringing in an actual income for my family while doing what I LOVE.  When I started this, it was a hobby. Sure, I had dreams of it actually becoming something, but honestly did not think it would.  Me and my husband just look at each other in wonder sometimes when we sit down and look at the orders pouring in! I feel so blessed!

 My babies: Lucy, Lofton & Brooklyn 

How do you find a balance between your blog, shop & personal life: Honestly, this is a hard one for me. I am still working at this.  I am a Mother first, and trying to work at home with 3 little ones is a challenge. There are so many things that I need to get done in a day, but I need to give them my attention too...so we are still working on this! One thing I do every night is work a bit when my husband gets home & then call it quits for the night to enjoy some family time on the couch! I also try to take most of the weekend off to spend with family! 

Who are 3 shops you are loving right now: sarahjanestudios- So many whimsical children's items I would love to get for my children's rooms & our toy room.  They seem so innocent & take me back to my childhood. //  vesselsandwares- I have been admiring all the delicate lacy pottery...it is all so dreamy!  // ktjean- There are so many romantic, flowy dresses in this shop that I am loving, especially this one.

I would love for you to come say Hi! You can find me here:

    I do consider all of the ideas you've presented for your post. They are really convincing and can definitely work. Still, the posts are too brief for newbies. Could you please lengthen them a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.
