West Indian American Day Parade

So after years of not being able to attend J'ouvert, an event that is usually dominated by Grenadians and their Jab JAb jump up for various reasons, I was able to attend this year. I met up with friends late Sunday evening; I watched a video of the Trinidad Soca Monarh of 2009.

The birth of Jacfred Creation

Jacfred Creation my home-based business that I started in May 2009. I am the sole owner. At Jacfred Creation, we make beautiful unique, one-of-a-kind greeting cards and invitations for all occasion.
It all started while I was getting ready to make greeting cards for family and friends for mother's day. Although I sarted doing it as a buisness at that time, I have been creating unique hand crafted cards since I was about 8 years old. My Father who I thank for the inspiration did not accept any excuses when it was someone's bithday and I did not give them a card. His answer to my excuse which was normally, "I did not have any money" was "then make one" and that was what I did and never stopped. I would make cards everytime I wanted to give one to a family member or friend. I got many compliments and many suggested I do it as a business... At that time , I was focused on other areas.

Well this year, my husband who is convinced that my creativity is what can give me that break through in life, kept pushing me to sell my art and so I decided to go ahead and do it. It's been said that if you do something that you like, you never have to work a day in your life. Well this is what it is with me and my card business. I truly love making these cards. I love the way I would gather materials together not having anything in mind but when the card is finished, it's an awesoome creation. It's just a great feeling to see what I can transpire on the card stock. I love to see the expressions on my customers' face when they look at the cards.
