new packaging

This is something that I have struggled with since I opened my shop 10 years ago, my brand and marketing and in turn my packaging.

I am loving my new packaging and got to test it out last night on an order

Orders going out from now on should be packaged this way

What do you think?

Oh my goodness I totally went fan-girl crazy when this popped up on my IG

My goal with my shop packaging is

I want the recipient to feel as though they are unwrapping a gift😊 I love getting packages in the mail dont you?

I hope that my new packaging brings smiles to recipients faces and joy to their heart!!!

I appreciate all of my loyal customers and everyone who supports my small business❤

Have a blessed day!!!

I support our teachers

Last year WV schools began what some would say a national movement… teachers have never been paid what they are worth and then to add on top of that a insurance policy that was ridiculous. All 55 counties in WV walked out and went to the Capitol.

This year almost exactly 1 year to the day they are walking out once again this time it is ALL about the students. Who said kids are our future, well if we dont stand up for them who will?

No I am not a teacher, no I do not have kids but one day I may and I want them to be able to go to school and learn in the same way and opportunities I had when I went to public school.

I feel I got an awesome education in WV, I continued on and got an associate’s degree, bachelors degree, masters degree and several credentials none of which would not have been possible without my educational foundation from K-12 in public schools!

Now more than ever is the time to get on your knees and pray

🙏Pray for the teachers

Pray for the kids

Pray for the legislature

Pray for the future

Stand with the teachers

I have created a few sticker sheets to show support of teachers you can find them here

Have a blessed day

Are you rushed for time?

And craving a homemade meal???

Yea if your like me there is at least one day in the week I am rushed for dinner… it usually is Wednesday before church, but with all the remodeling happening it is today😩

Well wouldn’t you know I had all of this in my pantry except the chicken and I picked it up after work.

Who doesnt love the Pioneer woman and to see that she now has made meal prep so easy with her easy meal kits available at your local walmart😊

I love instant potatoes and no they are not a replacement for homemade potatoes but when time is not your friend instant potatoes are your best friend!!!

Stove top makes for a nice side dish that replaces rolls or bread…mmmm with gravy on top😁

And when you cant make your gravy from scratch(something only women can find at the store😉…LOL😂) this is the most amazing substitute. I keep one in my pantry for such a time as this❤

And our meal is ready in less than 30 minutes

Bon appetit

Let me know if you try Pioneer woman meal kits at walmart, what do you think of them?

Is valentines day…

Happy or sad?

For me it is a sad day, I would have to say far beyond Christmas, Thanksgiving, memorial day, 4th of July, NYE, labor day I struggle with Valentines day the most.

And let me just start by saying it has not nothing to do with being single(although probably it doesnt help any🤣)

My dad spoiled me and my mom every valentines day with flowers, chocolates, jewelry, stuffed animals, and so on valentines day I miss him that much more😭

Grief never goes away completely you just learn how to live your life while being as happy as you can… grief will pop up in the most inopportune times and for some the grief can become almost unbearable. People dont know how much it hurts and that is okay… I smile and go through my day like always but inside I am broken and on the verge of falling apart😐

The only thing that makes valentines good this year is that it is on Thursday(my fav day of the week) and knowing that pop is celebrating valentines day with his saviour in Heaven and I will see him again❤

Hug those you love a little tighter this valentines day and appreciate every moment you have💗

I work a day job as a corporate medical auditor, my dream job… no really it is my dream job, I love it!!! As you can probably tell by this site I am also a wardrobe stylist for Ruby Ribbon(This is an awesome opportunity I just could not pass up 5 years ago) I spend my evenings, weekends, and spare time creating for the shop!!! I have always loved stickers… remember when Lisa Frank was a big thing(yea I was a 90s kid 😁)

I have always since I can remember loved paper, pens, coloring, crafting and now being grown up it is no different although now it is a fun job I get to have😊

So I opened up my Creative Corner in 2008 after years of my family and friends begging me to sell my crafts.

I have always wanted a family owned business you know the kind that you build up and then pass to your children, so in comes my partner
