THIS IS THE WAY HIS CREATIVE BRAIN WORKS. >> ONCE I GET THIS THING OUT OF MY HEAD, I WANT TO MOVE ON TO THE NEXT THING IN MY HEAD. JULIE: JENNIFER YOUNG CRAFTS MEMORIES INSIDE HER SMALL STUDIO IN THE HOT SHOPS. >> IT WAS LIKE, GOOD, IT’S FUN. JULIE: THAT’S WHAT SHE WAS CUT TO DO. IT COULD BE A GENETIC THING THAT STARTED WITH HIS LATE FATHER, WHICH WOULD HAVE WALKED DOWN THE GREETING CARD AISLE. >>HE WOULD WALK UP AND DOWN THE AISLE, COLLECTING THE CARDS AND JUST LOOKING AT THEM UNTIL HE FIND A CARD THAT SAYED WHAT IT REALLY MEANT. JULIE: AFTER A FRIEND INTRODUCED THIS EVENT PLANNER TO SCRAPBOOKING, HER GREETING CARDS QUICKLY FOUND A HOME. SHE IS IN SIX METRO SHOPS. >> I LOVE TO MAKE MY CARDS O SOME KIND BECAUSE THEY ARE JUST GIFTS AND IT’S COOL TO SAY YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE WITH THIS PARTICULAR CARD, THIS PIECE OF ART. JULIE: SHE BELIEVES THERE IS NO BETTER TIME THAN NOW TO SEND A MESSAGE TO YOUR FOLLOWERS. >> I AM A PERSON WHO, WORDS OF AFFIRMATION ARE THEIR LOVE LANGUAGE. AND I WAS LIKE, HEY, I LOVE ENCOURAGING PEOPLE SO I DO THIS ALL MYSELF. JULI HER HANDMADE CARDS ARE SIMPLE, BY DESIGN. >> IF I LEAVE IT BLANK, IT LEAVES SPACE FOR YOU TO SAY WHAT YOU WANT AND HOW YOU FEEL. JULIE: AND HER CREATIVE SPIRIT SPREADS. >> I BELIEVE WE ARE AL CREATIVE. JULIE: JENNIFER ALSO TEACHES COMPUTER COURSES. I ALWAYS TELL THE STUDENTS IN THE CLASS I TEACH, PICASSO DOES NOT COME HERE TO GRADE YOU. IT’S GOOD. JU

Handmade cards make an impression

Jennifer Young is an event planner in Omaha who started her own line of greeting cards a few years ago. And she thinks it’s now more important than ever to write letters, send cards and create memories. “Words are very important and very powerful and if you use them in a positive way you can uplift and encourage people,” Young says. She learned the importance of greeting cards from her late father who spent a lot of time looking for a card that said exactly what he meant. “So when I got a card from him, I took it to heart every time,” Young said. You can find her handcrafted paper art cards at Hollywood Candy and Made in Omaha. His Facebook page is https://www.facebook.com/jdcreatesJ. Diana Creations.
