Meet Nicky Bear I, Nicky Bear II, Nicky Bear III and Amethyst Charity Bear.
All four of these bears are by Build-a-Bear and they have each been a part of raising money for young cancer patients. Of course they only wear purple clothing and today they are wearing their fairy costumes and wings.
It's all about fabric, stamps, and photography to which I have been addicted since I was a little girl. My favorite color has always been purple, so you will see lot's of it, especially butterflies, flowers and my Nicky Bears. Oh, you might be wondering where my blog name came from. Back when I was in junior high school, I started designing clothes and quilts for friends and family. One day I decided I was going to be famous and all designers have a fancy label, so I came up with Creations by JEllen - my name is Joyce Ellen. I've been using it ever since. In 1990, I added a tiny little division called Jely Splats which creates clothes for medically fragile children. I became a Stampin' Up! demonstrator in 2003 and love flirting with colors and design, especially combining my love of photography with rubber stamps and beautiful papers. The newest and most exciting part of the journey is JEllen's house of fabric, a colorful quilt boutique located in University Heights, Ohio. It is our happy little cottage in the city.
