A Change is Gonna Come

Moving day has arrived here at the Jeune Girl Factory. All of my crafts and photographs are moving themselves over to a new and improved blog/site. This hybrid encompasses everything I need to run my "empire" (as I refer to it). Under one roof (or under one cute header) clients and fans can view my crafts and photographs. Photography clients will be able to view their session proofs and order prints. Craft clients can now order (and pay) through an online gallery as well.

I hope to see you all over there at the new site!

Deluxe Monogram Frames

I had made a few of these frames a while ago and I was reminded of them when I saw them proudly displayed at my brother's house. My sister-in-law, Cheryl, had commissioned a set of 2 frames for her daughters. Too often I make my crafts for everyone else and don't make them for my own family (like the old story of the shoemaker's family having no shoes) so I decided to remedy that situation! The other day I was over in Poughkeepsie for a photo shoot and had some time after so I ran in to Michael's to get the necessary supplies and, viola! Frames were done! Contact me for ordering info!

Wedding Day Bliss!!!!

Calling all brides.... and their gift-giving friends! If you are looking for a great one of a kind wedding gift (or bridal shower gift) then look no further than these great items. Everyone who has been following me knows that I can do name albums that say just about anything so I was pleasantly surprised when TWO returning clients approached me about wedding gifts. One asked for LOVE and the other WEDDING. Both clients also asked for the same color scheme (I hope these ladies aren't going to the SAME wedding.... can you say AWKWARD?). One client took it a step further and had me make a keepsake lunch box. These are perfect for those mementos of the big day that just won't fit in the album.

Contact me for ordering details!!!

Name Albums for Teens & Tweens

I've been getting more and more requests for name albums for teens. These are great gifts for them and, being 100% custom, can have designs that teens and tweens prefer. Teens would have the added dimension of being able to add the photos themselves and even incorporate their own journaling. They could even involve their friends in adding the custom touches. A perfect gift!

Here are some examples:

Ahh... Making Headway!

I love my client work dearly... in fact... when I'm not doing client work I go into panic mode, I think that I'll never work again. But I could relax knowing that my next set of name albums was on the way and I had some "down time" so I used it to finally put a dent in the pile of photographs I have. This is a fun page of a variety of images of my daughter, Catrina.

If anyone is interested in getting together with me sometime this summer for some scrap time, let me know... I need to be reminded to slow down and do my own work.

I Made Pages.... Just for ME!!!!!!!!

Yes, you heard me right. I had a small window of opportunity where I was able to do work just for ME!!! I have a stack of photographs of my girls that I haven't been able to touch but today I used what little time I had to create one layout of each of my girls. I used some of my favorite papers and I think they may just have to go onto my "Wall of Fame". I added some areas on the photos to show the detail of some of the areas on each page. I recently finished a FIFTY page custom order for a client so now that I'm done, I am open to taking on more orders. If you are interested in custom pages, please contact me.

Name Albums in Summer Bright Colors!!!

I've really been inspired by this HOT HOT HOT weather to use some great bold colors when making my latest name albums. My clients are always so good about telling me the colors they need and I love the combinations that they come up with!

For a Little Boy

Name albums are such a hit because they are 100% unique and make great gifts for anyone in your life. This name album is for a 2 year old boy.

Just a reminder to anyone who owns their own creative business.... you never know where you will meet your next client or make your next sale. The woman who ordered this album is someone I met at the DMV!!! I happened to be holding 2 name albums (to give to ANOTHER client I was meeting at the DMV. What? You don't meet your clients at the DMV? Well, maybe you should!) and the clerk at the DMV fell in love with them and ordered it on the spot! Definitely my most unique client!

New Layout for MYSELF

Using the Penny Lane collection from MME I was able to produce a new layout for my Creative Pandemonium design team. It's definitely a new favorite of mine and even made it onto the Wall of Fame in my office.

For all of my blog followers I must apologize for not being active lately. My photography business has become more popular than I ever would have imagined and has seriously put a dent in my scrappin' time. But I am still accepting custom orders (especially for name albums... they are as popular as ever!).

Wall Letters... A Blast from the Past

Wall letters remain one of my favorite projects but I haven't had an opportunity to work on a set for a long time. Recently, a client returned to me and asked me to RE-do wall letters I had made several years ago as GIANNA had her room remade (to welcome a little brother... his wall letters are a work in progress right now, mostly because unless his parents want to call him EVA instead of EVAN we are in a holding pattern). So Gianna is no longer a baby and now a little girl... here are her new letters:
