Picture me.

A baby cradled in one arm. My right hand on the mouse. The rim of the monitor frames my latest creation. And, I smile...because a picture is worth a thousand words, and the photo on my screen inspired a design that radiates warmth and happiness. The kind of feeling that you have to experience to know. I gaze down at my little one and smile once more.

Simply Stated Creative began with the birth of my nine-year-old daughter "Jemsy", designing her baby announcement and birthday invitations. With a B.A. in communications and professional experience in page and publication design + layout, print mangement and editorial writing for the non-profit and corporate sectors, I had the skill to produce high-quality pieces. But...I was inspired like never before. Upon my daughter "Jour Jour"'s 2009 birth, my creative energy was rekindled; and I had an epiphany -- why not marry my talents and my zest for life's happiest of moments?

A month later, Simply Stated Creative was officially born.

Clients: Think of me as your communication vehicle...your personal designer and copywriter. My goal is to produce high-quality introductions and keepsakes for your most cherished occasions, in addition to a myriad of other stationery and gifts.

The greatest inspirations derive from life's sweetest moments. I am so elated that I can offer my talents to share yours with the world!

♥ Jeni

Orders from the SSC Etsy shop and main website are processed in the order that the purchase and personalization details are received.
