Random Facts about Jennifer >>
1. I grew up in coastal maine and am happiest near the ocean.
2. I'm extremely shy + hate public speaking.
3. If I wasn't making art, I might like to run a small restaurant.
4. I keep a small secret journal of the funny (+ serious) things my kids say. It's the thing I would run for in a fire - I treasure it so much.

I am a big fan of Jennifer's beautiful work...and I love her notebook she keeps of the sweet and funny things her kids say....I am inspired by that. Lovely and lovely to learn more about her.

I just got my copy of 3191 in the mail the other day! Definitely inspiring.

And I'm with you on No. 9. I have an unhealthy love for them and thus a compulsion to buy pretty much every one I come across!

I'm also inspired by all the handmade wonders I find in your posts :)
