Multi-genre creative in the US Virgin Islands brings a touch of the islands to you

In September 2011, I started thinking about how much I missed working on paintings and drawings like I used to do when I was very active as an artist and had my own artist's studio. I had closed it years before when my full-time job as an attorney on St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands and working on my two music recordings began taking up so much of my time. By early October 2011, I had started JDNatlady's Creations, LLC with the intention of going back to painting and doing various arts and crafts that I had done over the years and even expanding into new areas of creativity.

In 2008. I had gone back to having natural hair and started making some of my own natural hair products. I went by the name JDNatlady on my blog and in online groups. When I decided to go into business in 2011, adding body butters and then hancrafted and handmade soaps were the next planned steps in expanding my bath, body, and hair products offerings.

There are many people in the Virgin Islands who know me (Aquannette Chinnery) as an artist, a singer, a former radio and television personality, and from many other careers or things in which I have been involved. Some know me as a local attorney, formerly with my own law practice and later as a government attorney. When I started doing my bath, body, and hair products, people would sometimes ask how I knew about how to mix things together in order to come up with new products, but many had forgotten that I started out in science.

Well, things took off in the bath, body, and hair products part of my business, with customer-driven requests for more products and even entire product lines! At one point, I was selling handmade products in my tiny B&M (brick and mortar) workshop/store on Saturdays; at my own webstore; and at local fairs, a farmer's market, festivals, and other community events.

Having heard about Etsy some time ago, I thought that it might be a great place to be. It is! This is a great community of artists, craftspersons, sellers, and buyers.

Having a full-time job makes time management really important. And sleep... what's that? I love creating and appreciate being able to create across so many different areas of creativity. The funny thing is the new expanded business has left little time for painting new works, but I hope to get to them soon. My shop is located on St. Thomas, United States Virgin Islands, all items are made by me, and all shipping is done from St. Thomas, United States Virgin Islands.

Here in the Virgin Islands JDNatlady's Creations has been voted by readers of the Virgin Islands Daily News for Best of the VI for many consecutive years starting in 2013. JDNatlady's Creations was also the winner of Best Arts & Crafts 2013 in the 61st Virgin Islands Carnival Cultural Fair.

I am thankful to God for allowing me to experience this season in my life where I am able to find a way to make time for creating and sharing the things I make with others. This about page gives me a chance to share with you a little bit of the processes that I use.

I would love if you would leave feedback. When considering leaving a comment about shipping time, please keep in mind that shipping is via USPS from a U.S. territory outside the U.S. mainland and shipping may take longer than we both would wish, so that will affect how long it takes for your shipment to arrive once I put it in the mail.
Additional policies and FAQs
New products are added on a regular basis, so please keep checking back. If you have a special request, please convo me and we may be able to work something out.

Please note that, if packaging is shown in any photo of an item, there may be some variation from the item as pictured, so if this might be an issue for you, please convo me. Also, these products are handmade or handcrafted, are handpoured, and may be handcut, so there may be some variation from the item that is pictured. The beauty of handmade or handcrafted items is that they are not mass produced to look exactly alike.

For most products, I may have more than the amount listed, so convo me if you need to set up a custom order.

Soaps make great gifts, so convo me if this is a gift for someone, so I may do my best to make it extra special (gift bag, wrapping, etc).

Soaps also may great favors for a wedding, bridal shower, party, or corporate event, so convo me if you would like to set up a custom order.
