New Year. New Life. New Blog.

Hi Girls! And Guys! 🙂

I am Jacque and this is my new blog! If you have been following me before, you would have seen several posts from my FB page and http://eclations.blogspot.com. And if you were really following me, you would know that it has been a really really really long time since I last posted something. And if you have been one of my few followers, I would like to take this opportunity to say, “Sorry it took this long. But this year (and on the years to come), I’m gonna make up for it. God-willing!”

So yep, here I am again in my attempt at a new blog, and just to be sure I would keep it running, I finally bought a domain! Yay! Yep, http://eclations.com is mine now! Rightfully mine! 🙂

And so, as the title of this very first post suggests, to me this is a New Year. Another start at my crafter life. But before we move forward, let’s do some throwback.

First, an old tale I wrote on what Eclations is all about:

History:

When I first thought of making paper crafting a business, the first thing I wanted to have was a “brand name”. I had several themes in mind like CutePrints, Cut&Fold, Happy Thoughts, Felicithings (meaning “things of happiness”), Oh Craft!, etc. But after discussing things with my good friend TJ, the term “Eclations” was coined.

Definition:
It supposedly came from the French word “éclat” meaning “great brilliance” then we just added “-tions” from “creations”. So in essence, we wanted it to mean “brilliant creations” but normally joke about it saying… “Eclations by Jacque, in Filipino, ‘mga ka-eklatan’ ni Jacque”. Though I don’t know what “eklat” exactly means in Filipino either. ^^v

Vision:
To craft things that would trigger smiles and to glorify God in the process, for the talent He has given me.

And here are the crafty highlights of my 2015:
January: My Daughter’s Cloud Pillow whom she calls Sun
February: Peace Flower Wreath for a wedding, Owl Clipart
March: Feather Headdress, Flower Girl Tulle Dress
April: Owl Softies
May: Candy Invitation, Ribbon Awards
June: Wedding Invitation Layout
July: “Winter” Letter Standee for a first birthday party
August: Another Flower Girl Tulle Dress
September: No-bake Strawberry Cheesecake
October: Flowers! Lots of Felt Flowers! And other Wedding props,
Miss Costa Rica Costume, My Little Pony Standee
November: Coloring Book; Save-the-Date Bookmarks
December: Santa “Fairy Flower” Hat

Now I know some of the stuff posted above deserve their own dedicated posts so at least for the upcoming weeks or months, I will most likely have “Throwback” posts. So if there is anything you want to know more about, please feel free to leave a comment! 🙂

That’s all for now. Thanks for stopping by. Don’t forget to follow me here and on fb, twitter and instagram!

Cheers to a happy crafty 2016 ahead! To God be the glory!
