A Designer's Life Image

Jen Reed

Yes, I really did that!

Last week, we had our back room's windows replaced. Of course, this meant everything needed to be cleared away from the windows in order for the installers to reach them. This is easier said than done.

For the past few months (okay, the past year), our back room has been overrun with clutter. It essentially had become my collect-all room for various business items, product samples, product comps, empty albums, portfolios, papers, unread magazines, old monthly bills, reconciled bank statements, and whatever miscellaneous and stray items or pieces of paper I could pile into not-so-neat stacks. This room also houses my two lateral file cabinets, desk, and computer, not to mention every stray computer part that over the years I have not been able to part with. Who really needs 12 unused computer power cords? Serial to PS/2 connectors? Seriously?

In a nutshell – it's my office – and it's been in sad shape.

Fast forward to this past week - and the thought of getting this room prepared to have a big picture window replaced was not very appealing. As I worked my way around the room, I tried not to go through things in too much detail. I was focusing more on tossing things and finding homes for other things.

When I came upon a stack of old article clippings, I couldn't help but flip through them. At the bottom of the stack were two articles written about me starting my own business and working from home. One was published in the local paper (a photographer even came to the house), and the other was published in a national home business magazine.

In 2000, I started a web design business which grew into a nice hosting business. The next four years my life was this business - RTech. Starting your own business from scratch is incredibly hard, and the first years are always the most difficult. By 2004, the nature of the hosting industry (24/7/365) was becoming incredibly stressful for me. After working through some of the most difficult times of owning my own business (while pregnant, no less), I decided to sell RTech. I was fortunate to find a buyer who had the technical know-how and business savvy to make a smooth transition for my hosting clients.

After selling my business, I got into digital scrapbooking as a hobby. One of the first layouts I ever created was about owning my own company. I wanted something to remember that "Yes, I really did that!"

My original layout was 8x8 inches. I decided to redo it so I could print it for my 12x12-inch digital album. I stayed as true to my original layout as I could and kept my journaling and photo the same.

Favorite Product I've Designed:

All I Want for Christmas Collection Biggie
All I Want for Christmas Collection Biggie

I absolutely love the color palette of this Christmas collection! This collection was actually a design request, and my original intention was to do something simple – a mini. But as I started working with the colors, the ideas just flowed and the collection grew into a rather large biggie along with a few add-on products. I simply love all the layouts that have been created using this collection. It truly is one of my favorites.
