Meet Amy of Doodlebug Dezigns

Tell us a little about you . . .

My name is Amy Ames and I am the owner of Doodlebug Dezigns.  I’m a work-at-home mother of 2 boys Ethan (8) and Cole (4).  I grew up in Athens, Georgia and married my childhood sweetheart.  I started creating unique birth announcements after the birth of my first son.  I spent the next few years just having fun and selling a few here and there.  After my oldest started school we decided to open a website.  Within a few months, we had risen to the top of search engines and our business quickly grew.   I am thankful to have a supportive husband who has encouraged me every step of the way.  

What is your business and where can we find it?

My business is Doodlebug Dezigns and we are a photo announcement boutique. We create custom birth announcements, holiday photo cards, and photo invitations. We can be found at www.doodlebugdezigns.com<http://www.doodlebugdezigns.com/>  

Is it mom-owned, invented, created . . .?

Doodlebug Dezigns is  mom-owned, invented and created.    Our current employees are also all  Moms.  We all have the same main focus  in our life, so we make a great team.   

A little about your entrepreneur journey so far?

The journey has been fun. I feel very blessed because I love every ounce of my job.  The web makes starting and running a business relatively easy. I think the tough part was just getting started. My husband works in the IT industry so he handles most of the marketing and the technical details which leaves me free to do the creative and customer service work.  I have enjoyed getting to know people from all over the country.  It always surprises me when I see all the neat places that we get orders from.  I have even made some great friends throughout the process. 

Where else can people find you? 

We have a Face book page.  Please stop by and become a fan.
