One World One Heart 2011

Hello and welcome to my blog if this is your first time.  To my friends who visit often, I love you guys! So my name is Jennifer and I do many things in my life. First I am the mother of these three gorgeous girls. They are the dotters in my blog name. My catch phrase "musings of our creative life together" truly indicates what this blog is about for me. While not every post features them, they are integral to my creative process and they are all little budding artists and creative beings in their own right.  A lot of things I create and eventually end up selling is usually because of one of these darlings below in the picture.

 This is my awesome husband, the father of the daughters and my partner in every way. He is also an amazingly creative guy. He is a set designer and technical director. He also is a puppeteer.

I work as a professional stage manager and have been for the past 20 years. I have traveled all over the world and worked on many shows. I have worked with amazing people. Now that I have the dotters, I took a full time job at a wonderful university and I  teach students what I have learned working in professional theatre. I still freelance as a professional stage manager too.  Currently, I have 3 projects in the works;  a new full length Peter Pan ballet, I am directing a production of Annie, and I am an associate producer on a new musical that is being done for the first time Christmas of 2011.  

 I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE all things vintage and interesting. I am a lifelong collector. I use a lot of my finds in crafts that I make...more on that below. I love old colorful dishes as you can see from my shelves in the kitchen. And yes, I do use a lot of these dishes. I also have a booth at an antiques mall. A good day for me is a few estate sales with a good thrift store thrown in and lunch with my antiquing buds. I am thrilled that my oldest dotter loves those things too. She has been tagging along quite a bit lately.
I live in Utah, which is a gorgeous state. I love the outdoors and I love waking up to our beautiful mountains. Right now we are freezing our butts off, but I still love it here. I found some new friends during the the last OWOH event and hope to find a few more. Okay, enough about me, So on to my giveaways......

Okay, so I love to craft and create, I also love vintage, estate sales, thrift stores, and I try to combine my two passions. I sell my wares at shows, a few boutiques in town and word of mouth. Alas, I do not have an etsy store. :) This is what I have made and sold lately. These vintage inspired yarn wreaths. They are so cute, and I incorporate all things that I love, especially birds. This wreath features lots of vintage flair with a sweet message, "our nest" It has 3 birds in honor of my 3 dotters. The wreath is white, pink and green, colors I love.

I also make crowns, which I sell quite a few of. This is an example of a birthday crown I have made. This will not be the one I send you (it is sold) but I will email you and make a custom one. Again, they are one of a kind and vintage inspired.
 I also make what I call "junk necklaces" and some lucky winner will receive their very own. This is a picture from a show I did this summer. You can also see some more examples of my crowns.

 Okay, so that is three different prizes my friends, so I will have 3 different winners. As the rules state you will have until February 16 to make a comment and I will then pick 3 winners randomly on February 17.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope to take a peek at your blogs as well.

Happy creating,

Hi Jennifer!

I LOVE your Fiestaware collection, and would also have to admit that a "perfect" day for me would include wonderful company, good food, and lengthy meanders through antique malls and collectible shops!

Your wreaths, crown and jewelry are WONDERFUL- I love your ~more is more~ creative spirit- just look at all of those fabulous details and textures!

If you haven’t already, I hope you’ll drop by both of my giveaways (at Twigs and Tulle and Kindergarten’s 3 R’s: I’m giving away a mini bunting and some pattern blocks) during this awesome blogging event! Happy OWOH!

You are definately the cat's meow. Really fabby. I love your story. Your blog. Well I've made a marionette or two in my day. I made them for small children because I saw a pic. in a National Geographic once of a child hugging the blazes out of a skinny marionette. I mean there was nothing there and the kid was hugging it like it was superman. So that did it for me. I made them 3' high and it is true...the children HUG them. Too cute. Anyway, this giveaway is a treat, and may I say that I LUST *oh dear* over your crowns!
I'd love to have a chance to win a piece of your beautiful work. Please enter my name into your draw, and thanks.! Norma (95)

Wow, Jennifer, how do you find the time to create with all the amazing things you have going on in your life!? Your family is beautiful, and your kitchen looks amazing! I love the idea of the crowns, and have a tiny collection of tiara pins. Whenever I wear one, someone asks me if I won a beauty contest. Yeah, right....crazy, eh? But, anyway, very sweet blog, and I would love to be included in your lovely giveaway. Drop on over to #412 for a chance to win a hand-knitted item. Have a magical day!! Take care, Nancy
