Hello, I'm Jayme Ballard. I started Cupcakes & Haystacks as a way to share with you my adventures, struggles, and victories as I strive towards living the life that God intended for me!
When I first felt God telling me it was time to make some major life changes, I had absolutely no idea what this meant or where to begin but I knew I had to start SOMEWHERE. I needed a way to focus my thoughts, so I sat down and created my first printable planner and prayer journal.
I've always felt that there was something magical about committing your thoughts to pen and paper (or to Apple pencil and iPad) and the more I wrote and planned, the clearer I could see what I really wanted my future life to look like.
As I journaled, two things kept surfacing. First, I had taken a few detours and really wanted to restore and grow my relationship with Christ. Second was my desire to travel and live as a full-time RVer. It had been something I'd dreamed about doing for over ten years and decided it was time to make it a reality! Perhaps God could fit these two things together?
Knowing I'd need a way to generate income from the road, I began to fill my Etsy shop with the planners and prayer journals I had created. It wasn't long before my printable planners became digital planners and in March of 2020 (about a year and a half after opening my shop), I had earned enough passive income to purchase my first RV!
In September of 2020 I launched The Extraordinary Digital Planner Design Course and I'm loving that I get to show YOU how to build a successful business that you love just as I have!
I have reached a point in my life where I'm tired of settling- just getting by. I'm not sure what adventures God has planned for me, my fur babies, and my little RV, but I'm ready to start living the life that He inteded for me and I would love to help you do the same!
