Meet Lola, a 6 year old Sphynx

Thursday, October 27th, 2011

There’s no denying it. We love our pets here at SJ Creations! Over the next few weeks, we’re going to devote our blog to our beloved canine companions and feline friends. We’ll share stories and photos of our four-legged sidekicks.

Feel free to leave a comment on our blog or share a photo of your pet on our Facebook page. We’d love to meet your beloved animal friends too!

To end the month on a sweet note, we figured it was fitting to feature Lola, the feline friend of Graphic & Web Designer, Megan. With a name like Lola one would have to expect a danty, sassy little thing. Well, Lola certainly doesn’t disappointment. She is a petite, white-pinkish hairless wonder. This spunky diva spends most of her days sleeping and trying to sneak eat her dog-brother’s food and spends her evenings playing, running around the house and chasing Jose in a hyper frenzy.

That isn’t to say Lola doesn’t have her sweet moments, says Megan. “Spending the first year of her life being neglicted, she was very standoffish and you could barely pick her up or hold her without her freaking out. But after rescueing her 5 years ago, we have really seen her grow and change with nurturing. With a lot snuggle time and patience, Lola has become super affectionate and loveable!”

Lola’s favorite hangout is the linen closet. “Anytime I barely leave it open, she manages to jump in there, curl up really small and fall into a deep sleep. So much so, that I have searched the neighborhood looking for her thinking she got out and all the while, she is snuggle up in the closet,” says Megan.


Do you have a dog, cat or other special animal in your life? If you don’t have a pet, what is your dream pet?

Meet Vinny, a Chihuahua/Dachshund /Pugg mix

Thursday, October 20th, 2011

There’s no denying it. We love our pets here at SJ Creations! Over the next few weeks, we’re going to devote our blog to our beloved canine companions and feline friends. We’ll share stories and photos of our four-legged sidekicks.

Feel free to leave a comment on our blog or share a photo of your pet on our Facebook page. We’d love to meet your beloved animal friends too!

Oh, Vinny! With his colorful coat and curly tail, this little guy is easily one of the cutest SJ EmPAWees in San Diego! Despite Vinny’s penchant for lying on clean clothes and begging for food, this playful pup, the proud canine companion of Graphic & Web Designer, Megan, is notorious for being a total sweetheart — just ask his brother and sister, Jose and Lola!

Vinny was adopted from a shelter at the ripe age of 6 months. Megan’s husband, Craig went to the shelter, took one look at him, asked to picked him up and Vinny did his siganture move… he plunged his head right into Craig’s chest and nuzzled away. That was all it took. Craig adopted him on the spot. Kind of a risky move, but we couldn’t imagine life with out him. “I was lucky have Vinny as part of our family because of my husband. I often joke that Vinny was the main selling point for me marrying him!”

Vinny loves drinking coffee (like his mommy), playing with his squeeky toy giraffe, sleeping, and snuggling under bed covers. If you need any more reason to seriously fall for this handsome guy, here’s an all-too adorable fact: When you say, “Oh, Vinny you’re soooo shy!” He lies down and covers his face with his paws!

Meet Jose, a 7 year old Sphynx

Thursday, October 13th, 2011

There’s no denying it. We love our pets here at SJ Creations! Over the next few weeks, we’re going to devote our blog to our beloved canine companions and feline friends. We’ll share stories and photos of our four-legged sidekicks.

Feel free to leave a comment on our blog or share a photo of your pet on our Facebook page. We’d love to meet your beloved animal friends too!

With his exotic name and alien, old man like appearance, Jose never fails to make an impression. Sometimes weary guests often become over taken with joy after spending 5 minutes with this playful Sphynx. The feline friend of Graphic & Web Designer, Megan, was rescued from a breeder in New Mexico at the tender age of 6 months.

Even though this little guy lives the high life of sleeping, eating and playing all day, he has had his share of health problems. Emergency trips and overnight stays in the hospital, IV’s, cathiders, surgery… this little guy has seen it all. But fear not, Jose is a fighter! If he could pick up a pen, I bet he could write a best seller about how to NOT take his medicine.

Despite Jose’s hairless, wrinkly looks, he actually acts a lot like a playful dog. “He come when he’s called, snuggles with this dog-brother, Vinny, and when I say “up” he jumps into my arms,” says Megan. Other lovable quirks include an affinity for paper Whole Foods bags, bogarding all high sitting and sleeping areas, and snoring loudly while sleeping on his back with his legs in the air. Oh, Jose!

If you’re lucky enough to meet Jose in person, lean in close. “If you get close enough to him, he’ll bop his nose on yours for a kitty kiss!”

Make Your Own Fancy Nancy Halloween Costume in 6 Easy Steps!

Tuesday, October 26th, 2010

Being the fanciest girl in town this Halloween is easier than you might think! Here are six simple, easy steps to put together your own Fancy Nancy Halloween costume:

1. First, start out with the frilliest, fanciest dress you can find. Tutus are always trés chic! Look for a bright dress with lace, sequins, and frills all around! Here’s a hint: pink and purple are posh colors.

If you can’t find a dress, a 1950s style poodle skirt with a pink top would be oh-so-Nancy too!

2. Second, there’s nothing fancier than a crown or tiara, and Fancy Nancy never seems to leave home without one! You can pick these up at a party or costume store. While you’re there, look for a feather boa for a little extra splash!

Fancy Nancy Posh Powder Set

3. Before you wear your crown or tiara, don’t forget your fanciful hairdo! It doesn’t matter if your hair is short or long – both are just as fancy when you poof them or add ribbons, curls, or baubles. Try our shimmery Fancy Nancy Posh Powder to give your skin a glamorous Halloween glow!

4. Nancy loves her fancy red heels paired with her frilly, pink-and-white socks. You can put your own spin on the outfit by adding stockings instead of socks – you pick the color! Custom is SO Paris!

5. Extravagant accessories like a dainty umbrella or a shiny little purse will add a little za-za-zing to your costume. Or, if you’re looking for something fancy in a pinch, ribbons and bows will always do the trick.

6. Finally, top it all off with a dash of glamour: pink or red sunglasses, a sparkly necklace, bracelet, and ring all say “Oooh la la!”

Pull them all together, and you have the makings for the fanciest, Nanciest Halloween ever!

Lemon Zest Antibacterial Hand Wash by SJ Creations
Since we added a product review star rating feature built right into our SJ Creations website, we’ve been receiving some reviews about our products that we’d like to share.
SJ Creations’ lemon zest hand wash is a new hit with me and my three adult daughters. It cleans our hands from gardening and cooking smells quickly but not harshly, with a pleasant but not overpowering lemon smell. It is an effective hand wash, yet gentle on the skin. All of us are hooked on lemon zest hand soap and we are ordering ahead to be sure we don’t run out of this fine product. Even my tough husband admits that lemon zest hand wash is easier on his hands and as effective as straight dish detergent.Review by JC in Madison, Wisconsin, July 2010.

Scrub your way to smooth summer skin with Lemon Verbena Body Polish!

Monday, July 26th, 2010

Our gorgeous Lemon Verbena Delightful Duo Gift Set includes a large jar of scrumptious Exfoliating Body Polish with an absorbent Shower Sponge to scrub and pamper every body part from neck to toes for sumptuous, smooth skin – all for just $6.00!

Although not actually derived from a citrus fruit, the powerful lemon scent from Lemon Verbena (Aloysia citrodora) comes from a flowering plant native to South America. It is often used as a lemon substitute for cooking and for personal care products. Using this botanical ingredient instead of citrus can lend to a gentler way to enjoy the fresh lemon scent.

In honor of all things Citrus by SJ Creations, and for this month’s featured Fragrance of the Month, the Lemon Verbena Delightful Duo is on sale along with ALL Citrus themed items, with a savings of 25% off for the entire month of July!
