Hello, friends! Welcome to the new year. I’m joining with quite a few crafty companies and bloggers for this huge giveaway blog hop. Every single stop is hosting a giveaway.
I wanted to join in on this hop to say Thank You to all my friends, customers, and crafty readers who have helped make this a great year for Bossy Joscie. I am so thankful that I get to work from home making little pieces of personalized happiness to send out into the world. I love what I do, so thank you for being a part of it. I also wanted to share a story with you about the origin of my company name, Bossy Joscie. I have met a few online friends in the past year who have commented to me, “You’re not really that bossy, Joscie.” and I had to laugh. My first name is Joscelyne but my Mom LOVES nicknames and called me Joscie when I was a little girl. That’s right, it rhymes with bossy. You know how kids LOVE to tease by rhyming names… well Bossy Joscie was usually the one I heard. I would try to turn it into Jos the boss but you know how kids are. Fast Forward to High School and getting my first job. I decided I would transition into Joscelyne. It was easier for people to pronounce. Even if no one seemed to know how to spell either name. Fast forward more years into the world of internet user names. It was a no brainer, I chose Joscie. It was usually available and easy to remember. Then I realized there were tons of people who were mispronouncing my name *in their heads* so I brought back rhymes with bossy to help them remember. When I started my company, Bossy Joscie seemed the obvious pick. SO, no, while I like to get my way, I’m not overly bossy. ;) but my name rhymes with it. xo
To celebrate my year, I’m giving away one of my favorite combinations, a blank list stamp and a pack of post-it notes.
