In Case You Didn't Know~



Hello Sweet Friends,

Happy Wednesday! My week is flying once again. In case any of you didn't know already. I  no longer use Blogger for my posts. Nothing against Blogger. I love it, but I now use Wix.com. It's really a great place to set up your website and it offers so much more too.

https://www.janetscreativecottage.com/blog

I would love for all of you to sign up to receive my latest blog news such as new creations, coupons, etc.

It's up to you. :)

Wishing you a very Happy Summer!

Hello Sweet Friends,

Happy Monday to you! Spring break is over. I hope you enjoyed every minute of it. We are now at the end of March and here comes Easter! Such a sweet and fun holiday, don't you think?

I wanted to let you know that I gave my website a new look. I am using Wix. ( Wix.com)

Have you heard of it? Celebrities use it and it's all over TVcommercials. But that isn't why I am using it. I joined Wix because I kept hearing how professional it is and how easy it is us manage. 

I have been searching for an easy way to manage my shop and have finally found it. I am not posting this to promote Wix, but wanted to share this info in case anyone is also looking for an easy place to set up their shop and manage it. I am so happy with my new website, look and all. I think it looks more professional and has a new more modern and trendy look to it. I hope you like it.

I will now be using Wix to share my blog with you. I love blogger and am grateful for the time I used it, but will now be sending my posts through them. 

I would like to ask you if you wouldn't mind signing up for my blog. No pressure and no obligation, but would love if you would sign up. Go to https://www.janetscreativecottage.com/ and sign up when you see the square gray box. I am still new at this site so I am learning quickly and will update you on anything new.

I will be sending out a new blog post tomorrow. I have new items to share. And soon new home decor products are coming too! So keep those pretty eyes peeled! :)

It's all New~ Take a Peek~


Image result for happy saturday images
Hello Sweet Friends,

Spring is almost here! I hope it's warming up where you are and you are starting to see those pretty flowers everywhere. If not don't worry! It will be there before you know it. And soon we will all be complaining that it's so hot out! lol

When 2017 began I promised myself that I would start a new year on a positive note. I would give my site a new look, offer new products and make my dreams come true.
Image result for positive mind, positive vibes, positive life
So far I have been very positive about everything in my life. God knows we have enough negative in the world. My site has a new look and I am pleased with it. I wanted to give it a more modern/trendy look. People don't seem to enjoy the vintage look as much. I still do, but I guess it's best to stay with the times. I love the past, but it's time to be in the present.

Image result for new website launch announcementSooooo....I would like to present my new website to you. I think it looks more professional.. I would love if you would all be  so kind as to subscribe to my site. It only takes a minute or two. :) When you go to my site you will see a box on the home page. That is where you can sign up.

I will no longer be using Blogger even though I do love Blogger. If you sign up you will receive updates about my products and you will receive my blog posts as well. Oh! and you will also know when I am offering discounts or maybe giveaways!.
Image result for BLOGGING
My blog has a new look too. I am still working on adding things here and there. As for the new products.... they are coming very soon.

So relax, get a cup of coffee or tea and take a peek...www.janetscreativecottage.com

I hope you enjoy your visit and I hope you enjoy your weekend!
