Happy Birthday Jillian!

Today is Jillian Vance's 14th birthday!! If you don't know who Jillian is, you should. She is an amazing young lady. At age 10, she started selling cards in her mother's beauty salon. Then at 12, she decided to start her own stamp company. Say whaaaaaaat? Yep, she started a stamp company at 12 and it's still going strong.

I admire this young lady's entrepreneurial spirit, her determination and her creativity. When she first approached her parents about starting a stamp business they (understandably) said no. Jillian didn't let that stop her. She researched the business and brought a very compelling case forth to her parents. They were so impressed that they coudn't say no a second time. Oh, and did I mention that in addition to owning a stamp company, she is also a straight A student?

This is why I've chosen to design for A Jillian Vance Design. I've designed for other companies with bigger names. Every company I've designed for has a special place in my heart, but I am extremely honored to be able to help make this young woman's dreams come true.

Oh, yeah, and her stamps are really cute, too. You really need to check them out. Here is a card I designed for her birthday with links to the products I used.

Correction: Jillian was actually 11 when she started the company and she's been in business for 2.5 years!! I was afraid I would mess it up!!
