Anyone who sells on Zibbet or Etsy knows Jennifer O’Hara, – aka Daintie Designs, aka Mrs Supply. If you don’t then you will want to.
There are so many wonderful sellers on these two venues but Jennifer is unique. She is blind. She makes gorgeous greeting cards on Daintie Designs and sells all kinds of wonderful ribbon on Mrs Supply. But the story behind both of these businesses is even more remarkable.
I have just finished reading her blog – http://www.daintiedesigns.blogspot.com/ and her story is one that will touch your heart. I have the great fortune of being one of Jennifer’s customers and I already adore her. She loves her life, her family and hubby Brendan. Each day is a struggle but she pushes on with spirit and optimism. Once again, I am inspired to love cherish and love all that I see.
Please go and read Jennifer’s blog and learn all about her disease, Intercranial Hypertension, that has robbed her of her sight, but not her undaunting spirit.

My greatest wish for Jennifer is to never give up. Some days are darker than others, but somewhere in that darkness, there is a shred of light – the light of hope, love and inspiration. May that light always be there for you Jennifer as its rays spread to everyone you touch.
It amazes me how someone, even after death, can continue to inspire you. We just said goodbye for the final time to my best friend last Wednesday. Since then, I have been creating like crazy.
I seem to have found more patterns, books, ideas, and hints for my crafts lately. It is like being with Marge and bouncing ideas off of her. I am now writing down or saving these inspirations as there are so many that I want to do. I can’t seem to convince myself to do one at a time.
I am grateful to be able to do what I do without pain or disability. I am truly blessed to be somewhat healthy and only suffer the little aches and pains of growing older. Marge taught me many things with her actions, but the one thing that stands out most is her cheerfulness during even the worst of times. Her wonderful sense of humour and love of life is what kept her going.
I have a “happy place” that Marge and I shared and I know I can go there at any time and see her. I always come away content, smiling and calm. What more could I ask for.
