Hello! I’m Joan, the owner and digital artist of BitsyCreations, which I began in 2006. It had humble beginnings! I was a working mom who wanted to stay home, but still needed a way to support my husband who was a full-time student and working part-time. I had loads of people tell me I should sell the greeting cards I made as a hobby, but I knew using other people’s artwork would be tricky if I wanted to sell products. So I taught myself how to illustrate and design using Adobe Illustrator! I opened a shop on Etsy (when it was brand new) and haven’t looked back.
Over the past 10+ years, BitsyCreations has evolved to what you see here. I’m often introducing new illustrations & unique products on a regular basis. I try to focus on USEFUL items that make excellent gifts.
Custom requests are always welcome and customer service is at the top of my list. Whether you’re looking for a unique baby gift or personalized item for your child, I want to make sure you are 100% satisfied with your purchase.
A little more about me… I live in Maryland with my fantastic husband and two exceptional children. I have a B.A. in Elementary Education from Brigham Young University-Idaho, but life led me to graphic design and I’ve been so happy with the results. I feel incredibly lucky to be a mom and business-owner. I truly am blessed to have the best of both worlds! I love to learn and am constantly trying new techniques and bringing you new products and designs. Many of my products include my own illustrations. When I’m not designing, I enjoy reading, being as silly as possible with my family, being a grammar and geography nerd, and watching too many BBC television shows.
