A while ago I did a little ‘Meet The Maker’ bit over on Instagram.
For those of you who don’t have Instagram or maybe missed it, I decided to just bundle it into one post, here 🙂
So if you want to know a little more about me and what I make, read on 😉
Meet The Maker (and my person Michiel;)
I am Jess, the person spinning the tales of our lives and adventures into readable form and creating the odd thing too 😏
After getting married, we moved to Europe for 1.5 years, I seen over 18 countries in that time and now we’ve moved back to my hometown where the hubster gave our first home, a huge makeover! We moved into it in December and are now working on the finishing touches, decorating and ‘homing it up’ bit ☺️💕
A few things that make up who I am as a human, are as follows…
The ocean is wow 🙌🏻🌊
Vibrant Colors make my insides happy 🌈
Popcorn with more salt and vinegar seasoning and butter, than actual popcorn🍿
Day dreaming > talking with people💭
Hygienic but abhor having to shower 😂😖
What I Make
I have a pretty rambunctious imagination so IDEAS are something I am rarely short on. Patience, funds, skill and ambition, are 😜
I dabble in whatever the wind carries my way but mostly I blog, I paint and make cement decor pieces, try a variety of DIY things and I enjoy bringing good food to the table. Literally 😉
( I also enjoy lame puns 😉
Where, When And Workspace
When? Late morning into the afternoon/late evening…pretty much anytime besides early morning 😜
Workspace? It used to be the kitchen island at my moms place but since the move into our own house, it is the left corner of our living room couch 😉👌🏻
Why Do I Make
I grew up with my mother mentoring creativity in my, since my very beginning.
So you see, I simply had no choice in the matter😏
I create because my brain would ache if I didn’t try to let the ideas out and I blog so the words come out better than if I spoke them and to keep family afar, up to date on our lives.
I create because for every piece I hate, once in a blue moon there comes one I love too ☺️
Although I may not love all I make, I am blessed with good health, supportive family and friends and the freedom to be able to try ☺️
Work In Progress
I am always working on the blog and new ideas are tested and imagined constantly.
I am a work in progress, what I create is a work in progress… isn’t LIFE entirely, just that?
I pray I can work towards a better me and bettering others lives in someway ☺️
Shop/ Where To Buy
Direct message me on Instagram, shoot me an email (email@example.com) or leave a comment here on the blog 🙂
My art pieces are available to be sent worldwide.
My cement pieces less so, I am sure you understand why 😉 But, they can be locally picked up/delivered.
A random thing to throw in the mix but I also sell pies locally 🙂
I did make mugs at one time but those are all sold out, would anyone be interested in more mugs/apparel/accessories? Let me know in a comment or DM 😄
PLEASE, leave a comment! I want to know what makes YOU, you, whether you consider yourself a ‘maker’ or not 😄
What inspires you? What is something that gets your eyes sparkling and sides happy dancing?
(Not like, gurgling, cause that usually means hunger or ya know…#2)
