jane can…have a birthday!

anniversary photo1

We can hardly believe it, today we are celebrating our first birthday! Starting jane can… has been one of the most exciting, rewarding and challenging decisions we’ve ever made. We have learned so much in the past year and we feel so fortunate to be doing something that we love.

A huge thank you to our family and friends for their love and support! And a gigantic thank you to our followers for celebrating, cooking, decorating, dressing up, making, playing, sweating, and now shopping with us!  We are so grateful for every like, comment, pin and share!

jane can… is a place for inspiration, so we try to make our projects and photos as pretty as they can be, but that does not mean there are not plenty of bad shots and failed projects along the way. We take countless photos from different angles with different backgrounds and different lighting to get one great shot.

We wanted to share a few out takes from this year to give you a glimpse into what about 90% of our photos look like. Getting the perfect photo of one child is difficult; three at the same time is virtually impossible! Getting our kids to smile for the camera at the same time can require a lot of tricks, silly games and yes…a good bribe, but we love to see our crazy kids’ silly faces in our hundreds of less than perfect photos. There have been plenty of bloopers and mishaps along the way, but we are still smiling and that is all that matters!

  1. I love what Jane Can has accomplished in one year – only onwards and upwards from here, ladies – I am a huge fan of yours! I read every post! Can’t wait to watch you grow! xx, Katie

  2. Happy birthday Jane-Can!!! I really enjoying reading your blog and trying out all your cool crafts and suggestions. It’s tough being a full time working mom and trying to exercise, keep up with the trends and be a fun loving parent. I love that I can always count on finding easy beauty tips, healthy meals, and cool projects for my twin girls from your blog.
    Thank you!!
