My first clue on who to choose was when I had a small contest for the book (not to be) and asked for people to make up a design using an Ahhhh. The above photo was the first entry that I received.
As time went on, I just kind of silently watched folks. I approached Jessica about doing some small projects for me for the other books and she got right on it. Had them finished in days. At that time, I knew she was the person I'd been looking for.
Jessica has been helping me design the up coming mug rugs and I found that she is a perfect fit. We can read each others mind. I can describe to her what I am thinking (but can't draw) and she can whip up the drawing.
She is always asking me how I come up with so many designs and ideas. Well, my mind never ever shuts off. When I am cutting fabric in the evenings it goes into overtime. Now Jessica can help those ideas become a reality!!
Now I am going to hand the post over to Jessica and let her tell you a bit about herself.
I am a stay at home mom with 3 kids (8,6 and 3) and have been happily married for 9 years.
About 15 years ago I taught myself to crochet and have been crafting ever since. It keeps me sane! I now mostly do embroidery and quilting.
EPP is my favorite, especially since learning to glue baste. It's so easy to take along everywhere and the kids like playing with the paper shapes when they need a distraction.
I started my Facebook page, Pikaboo Crafts,(VISIT IT HERE!!!)
last year to share my projects and eventually sell finished goodies and designs to help support my crafty habits.
Isn't Jessica amazing? And her family...so beautiful.
Her facebook group could use some love, so if you will go like it on facebook and come back here and say so, then I'll enter you into a drawing for two mystery charm packs. These are new, hot off the press. I am not showing which ones because they are across the room (lazy) and I am not sure which ones I am going to give out..but regardless... I have two charm packs. :) I'll draw for them next Monday.
Give Jessi a warm welcome into my Hillbilly world and know that are BOTH working on getting this next book out much faster than the last attempt. :)
And when you see the free mug rug next week..then you will know she is the creative hand that drew it up for you!
