Going along with our Budget Series, today we have a Giveaway for you guys. We are so excited to be partnering up with Jennifer from Designs by Jennifer Lynn. If you look around her ETSY shop you will easily fall in a love with many of her products! We asked her to tell you a little bit about her business... and for those starting new businesses, her story is very unique and encouraging. Handing off to Jennifer Lynn:
I started my business, Designs by Jennifer Lynn, by making welding caps. I am a welder and Journeyman Pipefitters and couldn't find any caps that I liked so I made my own. Then I decided to make them for others. I also am trying to save up money for equipment to add metal art to my business. I started making bags out of vinyl, for laptops. Then my dog groomer gave me the idea of making an overnight bag (kind of like a diaper bag) for dogs. I love the vinyl material, it's marine vinyl so it's waterproof and very durable, also looks great!
Most of my family have taken Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University course. One day I came up with the idea of my wallets and made one for my mother. She was having a hard time with Dave Ramsey's Cash Envelope System because the paper envelopes kept falling apart. She also couldn't keep coins in them so it was difficult to keep an accurate budget. So I made her a wallet with vinyl pouches that have zippers, made cute vinyl covers. I then made one for my sister-in-law and then decided to put them on Etsy for everyone!
I'm still coming up with new designs, but I have about 10 different ones in my shop. I also make them for kids.....my sister-in-law requested them to teach her kids, while they are young, how to follow a budget and save.
I have 4 different options on the wallets. They can get it with 3 credit card holders on the inside of the front cover, or a checkbook holder, or both, or neither. The wallet comes with 7 pouches, but they can have more or less.
My etsy shop and Twitter are DesignsbyJLyn. My Facebook page is Designs by Jennifer Lynn.
Jennifer has graciously offered one of you to win a Budget Cash Envelope System! For ANYONE working on a budget, wanting to get started, or someone that has been doing this for years.... this is a great tool to have. Below you can see some of the pictures of what she has!
