ABOUT NETTIES EXPRESSIONS
- Handmade with love -
My name is Jennette. I'm the person behind Netties Expressions.
“Kindness is a language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.”
An accountant/tax preparer by day and a crafter/designer by night. I'm an introvert at heart. An INFJ on the Myers-Briggs charts. All I truly need to make my day is having one or two conversations with someone about the deeper things in life. I call them heart talks. I love Jesus. I KNOW from experience that life isn't always easy. I believe in miracles. I love the beauty that God has created on this earth. Writing is my therapy and I definitely have a tendency to ramble. I love designing new things on my computer or shutting myself up in my woodworking shop and creating things to my hearts content. I’m a coffee drinker over tea any day. My nieces and nephews are my world and have me wrapped around their fingers. They are the “littles” in my life. I live in my dream yellow house called, Serenity Cottage.
I'm an advocate for mental health. Never, ever be ashamed to talk or ask for help. There's such good help out there. Even when you can't see the sun, it's always shining somewhere above the clouds.
I created Netties Expressions in 1997 at the age of 13. Now looking back, it seems way to young to start a little business and actually have customers. I was making custom birth announcements and printing business cards for a few local businesses and wanted a business name to attach to my products. And then Netties Expressions was born.
I've dabbled in card making and designing since I was young. My mom used to take me to the local scrapbooking store an hour away (which has been closed for years now). I'd spend hours walking the isles in all my glory, trying to figure out what to purchase and what I actually needed. I have lots of wonderful memories from our mother/daughter trips to the craft store.
Netties Expressions has gone through many changes since then.
Netties Expressions was born from the desire to create something meaningful.
Something that I could pour a lot of love and thought into, which in turn, would touch the hearts of those around me.
My favorite thing about running Netties Expressions, are the connections I’ve gained. I’ve heard so many amazing stories and been touched over and over by the people who buy my products. I could fill pages with the stories my customers have shared with me. I feel so blessed when someone gives me a glimpse into their heart. Whether they purchased something to bring comfort to someone or are sharing in the joy of a wedding, graduation or the birth of a child...all these occasions are times that are either filled with sadness or joy. Knowing that my products can bring comfort and cheer, courage and laughter makes my heart happy.
All my products are handmade with a lot of love, thought and prayer. You can often find the maker behind this business, (yours truly) singing songs according to the project being worked on. This means that sometimes Christmas carols are sung in summer, Easter hymns are sung in winter...and sometimes my eyes are filled with tears.
I create a wide variety of handmade stationery and giftware. My line of products include: rustic wood signs, pallet signs, handmade greeting cards, bookmarks, wooden crafts and decor, crafty books, journals, art prints, frames, tote bags and more. Click HERE to start shopping.
I host sign painting workshops once a month. The workshops are small intimate groups which creates a fun, relaxing atmosphere. Having smaller groups allows me to give individual one-on-one time during the workshop. To read more about my paint workshops, click HERE.

MAY THE ROAD RISE TO MEET YOU, MAY THE WIND BE ALWAYS AT YOUR BACK, MAY THE SUN SHINE WARM UPON YOUR FACE, MAY THE RAIN FALL SOFT UPON YOUR FIELDS, UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN, MAY GOD HOLD YOU IN THE HOLLOW OF HIS HAND. - IRISH BLESSING
