My name is Jackie Blewett. I have been making wreaths for over 14 years now. What was once a hobby turned into a part time business in 2012. For years I was able to keep up the pace of working a full time job, taking care of my daughter, grandfather and making wreaths part time. In the spring of 2017 I brought my grandfather home from the hospital to pass and lost him and my job within 5 days. I was left wondering what I was going to do for a job now. As I sat at my table making a wreath, a light bulb went off, I already have a job. The previous year I had made over $62,000 just making wreaths alone.The best part was I could finally be home for my daughter. In October of that same year, after my third back surgery, I opened my group Inside Jackie's Design Studio. I guess this would be the point where I tell you about all the amazing things I have taught my group, but I would rather tell you about how amazing the people are in my group. It is the things that they have asked me to teach, that has made me a better designer and person. My group has enriched and blessed my life so much, it made me work harder to give back to them everything they had given to me. Every chance that I could possibly get to meet them I took. It didn't matter if I was invited to participate in an event, bought a ticket or hosted the event, I wanted to meet every member of the group that I possibly could. Over the years I have had 4 back surgeries, a constant battle with Lupus, and most recently been diagnosed with Sjogrens Syndrome. Despite my battles with health issues, I can still make a wreath, sew, and craft. I have the most amazing support group ever. God, my husband Greg, daughter Tiffany, and friends. Because of them I have done things I have never dreamed of. While my health will prevent me from being multi-millionaire in this business, my health didn't prevent me from being rich in family and friendships.
