Hi, I’m Jen!  I’m a happy wife, happy mother, Christmas freak, believer in Santa, book nerd, Southerner at large, hater of math, lover of family, gummy bears and smiling.

This is my husband, Sean.


He’s an alien.  I know all women think that about their men but in my case it’s true.  He has a wicked sense of humor and he’s one of the most fair people I’ve ever known.  But mostly I married him for his butt.  Just sayin’…

This is our daughter, Eva.


She’s five.  She uses words like convenient and odd and tam o’ shanter, even when she doesn’t know what they mean.  She loves sushi and Beatrix Potter stories and shares my elation at seeing Fall and/or Christmas items in stores.

Once, after a discussion with Eva about what Sean does for a living I asked her what she thought I did and she said “You’re a maker, Momma.”  She knows my heart!  Here are some of the things you might find me making at any given moment:

  • Meals
  • Quilts
  • Costumes
  • Beds
  • Lists
  • Memories
  • Cards
  • Clothes
  • Love
  • People smile/angry/happy/cry/think
  • Lists
  • Plans
  • A mess
  • Also, lists

This blog is my place to share some of the things I make.  I hope it will inspire you to make every day a special occasion!  Thanks for stopping by!
