Amy Adele Review & Giveaway!!

Are you looking for a "personalize-your-own thing" type of website? Amy Adele is the place to go!! They kindly let me select two items to customize, so I chose the Kitchen Bowls Recipe Cards and the Galloping Horse Stationery.  I love them! It was really fun to choose what picture and words I wanted on them. The format was very simple with many different font and color selections.  I was delighted to find them packaged in pretty little green satchels. They also came with envelopes which is nice, so you don't have to "hunt" around the house to find one!


All wrapped up nicely...

Pretty!

AmyAdele offers customized t-shirts, labels, stickers, and more! 
Since I was child I have been hand drawing birthday and Christmas cards. I never took my art very seriously. However, in 2004 our friends and family encouraged us to turn my doodles into a business of selling cards.

I remember lying in bed one night laughing with my husband about the idea. Would people really want to buy my artwork? I haven't studied art my whole life and I don't have an art degree. I'm just a young mom with two sweet girls and I love to draw with colored pencil.

The encouragement from our family and friends was a humbling experience. After much prayer my husband and I believed God wanted us to pursue this project. We spent the following 18 months planning and organizing this online business and on November 15, 2005 amyadele.com was launched.


In less than a month my husband and I were up late every night folding cards and packaging orders. We quickly realized we could not run this business by ourselves. We had to hire help fast! Thankfully we did get help quickly. Since then every individual we have hired has been a dedicated and tireless professional that respects and cares about our customers.


Because we have such a great staff I am able to work from home and be with my children. I am still involved on a daily basis but our amazing staff manages our printing and production from our offices nearby.

I never imagined God would lead us on this adventure. However, I am thankful my art has been a part of so many lives. We are excited about our latest offering of personalized clothing and look forward to what's in store for the coming years.


May God bless you as you follow Him and find his adventure for your life.


Love,
Amy
