I'm a blessed mother!

When a 19 year old son gives a mum a card full of reasons why she is so special to him, plus a drawing he's done specifically because he knows she loves art, it makes her heart melt!

And when her daughters don't let her get up before serving her breakfast in bed (pancakes and coffee), knowing that she loves to be treated this way, she is awestruck at how blessed she is to have such treasures in her life. 


My 18 year old daughter asked me on Sunday, what I like most about having children and it really got me thinking. There were some cute and funny ideas I came up with straight away, like, having someone to cuddle, someone to laugh with, someone to test my patience with etc. But the more I thought about it, the more I realised that there is one thing that beats them all. It is something basic that every human being needs and thrives on: To love and be loved - unconditionally. My children are the object of my love - something (or someone) to pour out my love on, which is what I was created to do. I remember giving birth to my son, my firstborn and being overwhelmed by the love I felt when I held him in my arms  - the kind of love I had never known before. I can only explain it as a miniscule version of how God must feel about us - the object of His love.

I know they look a bit cold, but this is my brood, right after the oldest two chose to be baptised at our local beach back in January.

In case you had any doubts....

This week I thought I'd list some feedback I have had from customers. Its always good to know that what I am creating is appreciated by others. That is part of what drives me to create. The great thing about positive feedback is that it puts prospective buyers (like you!) at ease too!
If you have time, I would also appreciate comments on what you love best in my shop. This will help me focus on whats important to my customers! Thanks and enjoy!!

Beautiful!! I am overjoyed!! These were customized with my shop name on them -even color coordinated with the graphics and flower photos on each box! They are just lovely - Jocelyn is such a joy to work with - highly professional, friendly and so very gifted! My highest recommendation to this seller!! She has such a lovely selection of items in her shop - please have a look!! You will be exceedingly please with any purchase from her !! Thank you so much Jocelyn! A++++++

Positively stunning. More beautiful than your wonderful photos portrayed. I am over the moon excited. They are already framed in a triple frame and hung on the wall. Well packaged for the trip across the pond. Thank you so much.
Autumn Splendour Photo paintings

I don't even know how to adequately describe these beautiful, beautiful and extraordinarily unique cards. They are simply each a work of art. The photos themselves are collectible - they are that lovely - and the cards just add to the "collectibility" of her artwork. These are not just any cards - they are each hand crafted and signed. In addition - they are not printed - they are INDIVIDUALLY hand made - each photo is cut to a specific size, and a beautiful coordinating mat is cut, then both are artistically and beautifully placed on the white card. Just lovely - more than a card - they are small art gifts to give or keep - and are frameable as well. Uniquely lovely - they arrived with a satin ribbon neatly tied, with the lovely logo tag of her shop - these are so wonderful to give as gifts, or for yourself. My highest recommendation to NewCreatioNZ and these beautifully made 3D cards. Thank you!
