Gifts from the heart!

 

Hello!!!

I hope everyone enjoy their holidays!!! I thought for my first post of the year 2015, is to share the creations I did for my family and friends Christmas gifts. If you follow me on facebook and/or Instagram you notice that I been sharing my DIY gifts, unfortunately I had to stop because some of my lovely friends and family follow me either one or both of these social media.

 

Now, that my family and friends has their goodies, let’s get started:

 

I made a few frames with quotes and added embellishment to the frame. I thought it will make a lovely home décor gift.

Save the best for last, my favorite DIY candle holder gifts.  I love how it came out, it look great with the tea light candle on and off. I especially love when the candle is on, it give off a peaceful- tranquility vibe in the room.

So here you have it, 3 ideas to make any time of the year gifts like birthdays, Christmas, valentines and so fourth.  These gifts didn’t take long to make, either way I love their reactions when they open their gifts. I hope you enjoy my creations.

 

***News: My youtube channel will be up soon if you would like to see any of these DIY gifts be made, leave a comment below.***

 

***2nd News: I will add these type of creations and embellishment (just incase you want to make your own) to my etsy shop, follow my facebook page to be informed when the items will be up.***

 

Thanks and if you do decide to create any of these DIY gifts, I would love to see them, use #JomieDIY .

 

Love,

Jomarie

Changes for Lil’ Jomie Creations

lil jomie merged copyHey everyone,

 

It’s been a crazy two weeks but I can’t complain been very busy. Okay two weeks ago I had explain I was going to post some news on my Facebook page. It’s nothing horrible but there are major changes to Lil’ Jomie Creations, that I feel needed to be changed in order to become successful. If I don’t do this now, I know Lil Jomie Creations will be run down to the ground and I don’t want that and I know my fellow Lil’ Likers wouldn’t want to see that either.

 

What are the changes?

 

I’m slowing my business down and practically restarting it again. What does that mean? Well due to the circumstances  occurring in my life, I can’t focus and give full dedication to my business, which means, instead of working a full time job I will be working part time. I want to focus more on creating my escape of relaxing–unfortunately I seem to lose it and my creativity mind seem to get cloudy.

Lately I started to notice my passion to create, began to return when I started to teach and show demos. The excitements of showing someone how to create something or help with their block helps get my creative juices running again. Afterwards I come home with a bunch of ideas and start to create projects with the help of my munchkin (only certain projects); I become happy and stress free.

With this said, I always wanted to make my own Youtube videos and I’ve been researching on how to make one–I know what some of you might be saying ‘you only need a camera.’ Which is true, but I want to give you guys a high quality video, not just a halfway made video. But, soon I will be making and posting videos!

 

“What can I expect on your soon to be Youtubes Videos?”

Tutorials: a step-by-step guide on how to create something, reviews on  products, gadgets and even how to use them, learn about these certain products and what the full purpose of these products will be. ‘My Child and Me’, are great tutorials about what you can do with your kids or any child in your lives.

Now, my Youtube channel will not only be for crafts but for personal use too (now for this I’m still deciding if I should do all in one youtube channel or have 2 separate channels) anyway, if so, there will organization tips and tricks, products that I have used or made myself, play time with your children and so forth.

Now my videos won’t be up every week I’m going to take things slow and probably post once a month or twice a month or even more but mostly once a month.

“What will happen to your etsy shop?”

My etsy shop will still be up and running I still will be posting items but not as consistently, I will adding items to my shop and letting you guys know what items I will be posting up.

“Should I still follow you on instagram and twitter?”

Yes, please do! I would be posting photos and messages through my accounts,  of either stuff I’ve created for myself or creations that my munchkin and I did or another creation– from others that I just have to share because their piece was so awesome.

Now for my ‘Thank you’:

I just have to say to all of you, is thank you for the support and love that I have been receiving. This year 2013, has been a rough year for myself and my family but we have to continue on moving forward until the dark cloud move away. The last thing I want to do to is disappoint you guys, you are the ones that helped me create and grow Lil’ Jomie Creations, without you I wouldn’t have a small business. Once again Thank you with all my heart ❤

 

***Keep checking up by following me on facebook, instagram and twitter: for news, quotes, or anything else that’s going on.***

Remember together we can create something from the heart ❤ ❤ <3.

A fear that cost me to stop writing…

It’s been awhile since I written something, it’s been a crazy month and a few weeks (I will do a quick recap at the end of this blog). As I sit on my bed with the munchkin sleeping next to me, I can’t help to feel a little anxious in writing this blog. It’s not because I don’t have anything to say, I have plenty to say.What is causing this fear or anxiety is my grammar. Most of you who have been reading my other blogs know my grammar is not perfect and I know it’s a big issue not only for this blog but for work, school, interacting with others and so on. I always knew the importance of grammar and I have been practicing but for some reason it just doesn’t want to go through my head. Which is frustrating in my part because I learn everything else with ease. Don’t get me wrong I won’t give up on it and I plan to work extra hard till I’m flawless. I guess the reason I bring this up was the fear that was growing inside of me, which lead me the fear to write and look like a fool. I can’t let this fear stop me or how else will I learn and perfect it or express myself or write a novel, which is something I always wanted to do. So if you are reading this and have been following or new to my blog, all I ask is to be patient with me and this learning process.

Now that my anxiety is under control, it is time to let everyone know what to expect from me!

  • As of yesterday, I started to work out in order to lose weight and become healthier. I will be recording my process weekly, which will contain my weight at that moment, what I eat, how I felt that day emotional and physically, and the type of exercise I have done throughout the day. At this moment,  I’m still debating what day I will post my weekly progress, most likely on Mondays.
  • I will try to post something on a daily basis but to be honest the summer is here, Joey and I planned activities everyday with Emily (Joey gets out of work early during summer).
  • In the next few weeks I will be posting sneak peeks of the creations that I been making for Lil Jomie Creations.
  • I have a few more ideas on my mind on what to expect but it still debatable, let see how everything ends up.

I’m extremely excited of the new adventures that coming our (my little family) way, it won’t be easy but I can’t wait to try and see the end results.  Here a quick recap on what been going on with myself and my family…

I like to be creative, enjoy!

As we all know that my munchkin birthday party was on April 21st, which she had a blast as well as for my guest and her birthday on the 25th where I bake cupcakes and watch her blow out the candle with a few family members. I can’t believe she two already and the terrible two is something else… ;-).

After 12 years of living in Cicero Bronx, N.Y, my parent move 4 blocks away from my apartment. I have live there for 11 years, it’s Emily  first home and watch her grow for a year, it were she learn how to crawl, walk, said her first word, and many more. It was sad to say good bye.

My parent weren’t the only one who move, my sister in law Sandy bought her FIRST HOME!!!  Last weekend her family and my in laws move to their new home, which is gorgeous!!! Sandy and I are planning to do many creative piece for her new home. I’m excited and happy for them.

Finally, I been focusing on my grammar, how to use my Nikon D3100 manually, Photoshop, and of course making creations, tons of creations!

Now it’s time for me to say, until next time!

p.s  Please bare with me, I’m trying to customize my blog…so you might see different themes for the next few weeks. Thank you for your understanding!

Though desicion, but it had to be done

I decided to close my business Lil Jomie Creations! What, how can this be!!??? It’s not permanent, it’s only temporary…I feel that it is the time for an upgrade, revamp the look and feel of Lil Jomie Creations, and increase my inventory. I enjoy every minute of my business for the last year but I also notice I made mistake that cost me greatly. I rush into my business, I never sat down and taken the time to plan everything the right way. After weeks of thinking and consulting a few people, I decided to closed it down and refocus my dreams and passion for Lil Jomie Creations.

Now you may be wondering, what going to be the next step or what can we expect Lil Jomie Creations? Well I’ll give you a little peak for what to come. One of the main things I wanted to focus is to build my inventory; I want to create more unique diaper cake all shape and sizes with different materials, party favors, props for photography, and many more!!! Sorry, I wish I can say more but I can’t spoil everything ;-D but I will show sneak peeks from time to time on facebook and here Lil Jomarie!

**One last thing, I want to thank everyone who has been here supporting and following me since I started Lil Jomie Creations  http://www.facebook.com/LilJomieCreations and my little blog ❤ you’re the best!!!

Who am I?

Welcome to my blog!!!

My name is Jomarie and I’m a housewife, currently going to school to learn how to manage and grow my business. I’m currently living in The Bronx, New York with my husband of 2 years, Joey and our beautiful active almost 2 years old daughter, Emily (but we call her Emi for short). I’m pretty much an open-minded person, who like to laugh, hardworking, and enjoy being with my little family.  I currently started a business name Lil Jomie Creations, where I do unique, fun diaper cakes and party favors.

I’m really horrible at introducing myself…lol…but it something that must be done, one can say I’m practicing.  One of the things I learn, you have 30 second in the business world  to introduce yourself and who you are, especially if you own a business or want to work in a company. Those 30 second will either make you or break you!

Now that I gave you the first piece of knowledge. Why the blog?

I have to many thought running through my mind about current situation either that affect myself and my family or what happen in the world we live in. Most of you may think why the world? You can see how New York can affect me but truth may be told, what happen in any part of the world such as the United State, Europe, Asia, etc can affect us in a positive or negative way.

Once again, what the purpose of me writing a blog?  Okay, here it goes… knowledge is power! So I’m guessing you’re shaking your head at this moment and telling the computer screen, I know this already (lol).  My blogs will have everything it’s not base on one category, there to many stuff going on out there to stay in one category.  Most likely I be writing about my experience and the step I’m taking such as financial freedom, losing weight, my family, there I say it…couponing and more. My goal is to help others who either in the same situation as myself (or worse) or learn something new that they can apply. We as human have the habit and the mindset to learn things the hard way and not listen to any advice (I’m also including myself but I’m trying to breaking this habit  :-D) by doing this we waste valuable time, that can be use for something great. So it goes back to what I said knowledge is power, the more knowledge you acquire, the successful you become in life. There also another reason for the blog, I know it giving me the motivation, to continue on my goals. Hopefully it give you the motivation as well to move on forward and yes it is scary at first, we only have to take it one step at a time.

I hope you enjoy my first blog! I tried to write it if I were talking to you in person and not make it boring. Comments and advice are welcome!

Have a wonderful day!!!
