About Us

Care-Full Creations, Inc. is the corporate name of a business that is owned by Paul and Janet Dixon. Paul and Jenna (Store Manager/Buyer) operate a Hallmark Gold Crown Store and Boutique in New Bern under the name of Jan’s Hallmark & Jenna's Just-In Boutique.  Both stores were named after Paul and Jenna's Significant others, Jan & Justin.

 

OUR HISTORY

Paul and Janet Dixon purchased the New Bern store in September 1998 from Hallmark and have continued to operate it since that time. 

In 2013 Paul hired Jenna Gifford to be the full time manager/buyer for Jan’s Hallmark and to help them in re-focusing the store from a traditional store to an emphasis on fashion and related products.  Jenna’s background in the Jewelry industry, management and the home décor/furniture business helped her to completely change the direction of Jan’s Hallmark, that is now also a mid to high end Boutique as well. 

Paul continues to be actively involved in the business, focusing more of his time on developing and enhancing new businesses, such as the personalization business, leasing and cash management.  He leaves the day to day operation of the business to Jenna.  Jenna has re-inspired the Hallmark Gold Crown store.

Paul and Jenna have created an atmosphere in New Bern that people love.  They have great staff in the store that are more like family than employees, that have helped create this amazing experience and shopping location for New Bern. 

Janet is not involved in the day to day operations of the store.  She assists with special projects and events.  Her full-time job is as an artist.  She has been won numerous awards for her watercolors and has been published in “International Artist” Magazine and featured in the book How Did you Paint That?  100 ways to paint People & Figures-Volume 2.   

Janet has also used her art to promote the business of Jan’s Hallmark.  In addition to selling her prints in the stores, we have used her images on a variety of products to create gifts exclusively sold at Jan’s Hallmark.
