Sometimes, You Just Don't Wanna.

Sometimes, You Just Don't Wanna.

     So it’s a rainy Saturday morning here in Memphis, and gloomy weather has never been a friend to my creativity.  Which is why I decided to write about moods vs creativity vs coffee.  And more coffee.      Matt is at church working today, as he does every Saturday.  I probably should have packed up the laptop and gone to the church with him to do some social media advertising.  Its always fun working at the church with Matt and the other pastors and staff.  However, he had to be there at eight and I was not really communicating...

A New Beginning

A New Beginning

Hey, folks! Yes, I know…its been a while. There have been a lot of questions from you guys about the changes that have been happening over the past year at Jentegrity. Many of you locals know, but I haven’t spoken of it on here until now. My mother, whom y’all knew as Mimsey, passed away in July. She made many of our bracelets and eyeglass holders, and loved sorting beads for me. Since she lived with us, I was blessed with the opportunity of caring for her and spending all my extra time with her as her strength slowly began to...

Mimsey Days

Mimsey Days

  Mimsey on Christmas Day, 2017      So by now, many of you have heard that my mother (we call her Mimsey) has moved in with us.  I have always been very close to my mother, so I was excited to have her living with us so that I could see her every day.  Now, being a bit of a naive optimist at times...I thought being a full time caregiver would be a snap for me.  I thought, well I can just bring her to the store with me every day.  I mean, I'm fairly organized.  I run a business and...

Black Cat Sunday

"The Sunday Sammy Snooze" I have always felt that Sundays are for worship, fellowship with friends, and naps.  Of course, being that I am a confirmed workaholic (and married an even busier workaholic), I can't just sit here at home without working on the Jentegrity Jewelry website, Amazon, Pinterest, and Snapchat accounts over the weekend.  I do love my naps, but I love being productive even more. Sammy would disgree. Sammy is our 3 yr old black kittycat.  Almost three years ago, someone dropped this scrawny little solid black, half grown kitten off at Matthew's elementary school...on Friday the 13th, of...

Sea Glass Jewelry And Grandkids

There's just something about a Nana.  And a Mimi.  And a Memaw.  These ladies are some of my favorite customers.  I love hearing stories about my customers' lives and families, and grandmothers have some of the best stories of all.   Recently, a Nana asked me if I could engrave all of her grandchildren's names on a piece of sea glass.  Since she was currently expecting her 12th grandchild, I came up with an alternative design for her.  She had 12 grandchildren from four children, so I engraved four bunches of flowers around her name, each flower representing a grandchild,...
