Veronica Juarez, owner of Juarez Kreationz started her home-based business in 2016. She is a one-woman operation. This venture initially started as a hobby by making homecoming mums for her son’s dates. She would purchase sticker letters from stores and creatively put them together until her husband gifted her a cutting machine. This allowed her to start making the letters along with other types of decorations. Working full-time in Houston and having two active boys did not leave much spare time, but once Veronica’s older son graduated and her younger son began driving, she had more time on her hands. Entrepreneurship has been her goal and she was able to reach it when she turned her hobby into a small business out of her home. Using different resources, she taught herself how to make custom shirts and decals. As her business grew, she invested in other equipment that allowed her to expand her merchandise. Juarez Kreationz currently offers custom T-shirts, Tank tops, Onesies, Pillowcases, Sequin Pillows, Kitchen and Sweat Towels, Garden Flags, Coasters, Mousepads, and Gag Gift Toilet Papers. Much love goes into each item and Veronica is diligent on ensuring great quality. You may give Veronica a call at 979-484-9635 or check out her Facebook page at www.facebook.com/juarezkreationz

TEXAS SWINE SOLUTIONS, LLC
Texas Swine Solutions was created when owner Mallory Gaby and husband Matt Gaby began offering to get rid of hogs for local ranches for free. The demand became high enough that the need for additional equipment was becoming very expensive, and so began Texas Swine Solutions. They have invested in the best technology, methods, and gear to help any farm or ranch in Texas solve their hog problems once and for all. The question was asked: Why don’t they just shoot the hogs? The answer is, this leads to many issues. The hogs run away and come back a few days later. Often hunters do not act responsibly on farm land, and are not properly insured. This opens up the chances for accidents to become large problems for land owners. Texas Swine’s solutions vary depending on the scenario. They take time to evaluate and study the problem in detail, and come up with a comprehensive and often permanent solution, so you can finally say good riddance to the pesky hogs that tear up your land! Give Mallory or Matt a call at (979) 500-3064 if you are in need of their services.
