Hi! I'm Jess! I'm less of a woodworker and more of a crafter, but since meeting my husband to be, a wonderfully skilled craftsman and woodworker, my interest in this medium has begun to build (pardon the pun). Being sensitive to loud noises, I have always shied away from the shop, but the call to make stuff is strong and I can no longer resist the pull. Also standing in my way before was the stereotype that females were aliens when it came to tool time. Well, I say, screw you and your ignorant wood too! This stereotype was often implied in the school setting, making it difficult for me to take the classes I really wanted to take: shop, welding, etc...Well thank God for college art classes that let me explore the things I always longed to do in secondary school! I've come to realize that as my confidence builds, so does my art. And thanks to my hubby, who encourages ALL of my interests and lets me use his tools!
I am a mom of three and just finishing a degree in writing and art. My goal is to be able to support my family doing the things I love: writing, crafting, and building. I am inspired by clean lines, modern furniture and pieces, people who do what they love and love what they do, and aren't afraid to blur the line between reality and creative fantasy. I am also inspired by my little guys who aren't inhibited by all the things us grown-ups are. And my girl, who is happy all the time despite all the odds stacked against her. Live, love, laugh!
-- crafty ladies love wood too!
