Oh My Stars in Katy, TX is carrying my cards!

Oh My Stars is having their Grand Opening event this weekend at 1935 Avenue D, Katy, TX and they are carrying some of my hand made greeting cards!  I am so excited to have them in a storefront, I can’t even put it into words. Thank you so much to Malonya and Jodi for giving me this opportunity and exposure.

Oh My Stars is a wonderful store carrying unique home decor and gift items.  Visit them this weekend, August 7th & 8th and check out their fantastic items. All details are on their Facebook page.  I wish them success and happiness in their new venture!  I hope this leads to a long and fruitful relationship between Oh My Stars and Jnets Line.

I also hope that this will be the spark that gives me some self confidence so that I can put myself and my products out there more.  I don’t know what is wrong with me that I am so afraid to pursue my dreams and start by selling myself and my products.  I love what I do and I am very proud of what I produce.   I really love to give my things away as gifts which usually results in what we all love  — compliments!  ………….But then I see other crafters work and I lose all confidence. I don’t feel that my work holds up and I can’t imagine people willing to pay their hard earned money for my stuff.  I have always gotten the support and praise from my family (thank you all so much, I love you and so appreciate your help, praise and encouragement over the years), but let’s face it, they are family – they have to be nice right? Lol. Except for Dad, we can always trust Dad to tell you exactly what he is thinking!

Anyway, all this boils down to the fact that this is a very big step for me and I intend to keep those steps going in the right direction, so thank you again to Oh My Stars Jodi and Malonya.  Good luck ladies!

Card Making for a little girl with brain cancer

Izzy Garcia is a beautiful 4 year old girl in Houston, TX.  At the age of two she was diagnosed with Ependymoma, a form of brain cancer.  After a two year battle, her parents have received the most horrible news that she only has a few more weeks to fight.

I am hosting a card making evening on Tuesday, March 22nd at 7pm to make cheery bright cards for Izzy’s last days and some encouragement cards for her parents.  They also have a young son and a newborn baby at home so they need all of the encouragement and sunshine they can get to help brighten a dark time for a young family.

If you would like to join us, please visit my meetup page.  Please feel free to invite a friend or contact me if you have an questions.

Thank you and I hope to see everyone on Tuesday!

Please note 50% of my fees will be donated to Izzy’s gofundme account to help her family pay for the overwhelming medical expenses they have incurred over the last two years.  Please feel free to visit Izzy’s account and make your own donation.  Thank you.

2015 Ornament Exchange – Oh My!

First of all, I want to thank Erlene of My Pinterventures for ALL of her efforts and time in coordinating this wonderful (and large) ornament exchange!  Thank You Thank You Thank You Erlene!!!!!

I have to apologize for being behind so I am posting the first five days of groups together in one post.  I am already blown away by the ornaments this year!  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do and I hope you take a moment or two to visit some of the blogs and compliment the participants on their work — or on their choice if their ornament was purchased.  And please come back every day to see all of the other wonderful creations and selections to come. There are over 80 crafters/bloggers participating and that promises to provide a wide variety of ornaments with something to pique everyone’s interest!  Click here to go to Erlene’s blog for links to all of the blogs for information on each ornament.  Most are made and some are purchase but all of the information is provided so you can follow the tutorials or go on a shopping spree!.
