Heeeeeeey! Look at you being all awesome checking out my about page and stuff!
I’m Jennifer and I’m a little loopy (as you might have noticed!). *socially distant handshake* It’s fantastic to meet you!
If you have way too many creative projects going on right now and don’t know which one to work on next, we’re gonna get along juuust fine. I might even be able to help you if you’re feeling stuck.
I used to think there was something wrong with me. I’d start a project or learn a new creative skill and get super super into it. And then once I really got the hang of things I’d get bored/shiny object syndrome and move on to the next thing. Wash, rinse, repeat. Annoying!
It wasn’t until much later in life — *checks watch* about five minutes ago – I realized this is a type of creativity which has its own name: Multipassionate Creator.
It was such a relief to understand I wasn’t just a flaky failure-to-commit girl. I’m a supercreator with lots of interests. When I took a few minutes to look back over all the projects I’ve worked on in the past fifteen years, I saw it wasn’t a cycle of begin-quit-begin-quit-quit-quit. It was a spiral in which I circled back to things I’d set aside, often with renewed enthusiasm and a deeper understanding. The best part: each new creative skill I learned informed everything that came after it.
Maybe this sounds familiar to you?
The only creative pursuit that’s been a constant through my life has been this itchy need to write about anything and everything. The stack of journals I burned on my 43rd birthday was EPIC. (Still no regrets.) Beyond writing, I’ve done/do it all – knitting, crochet, papercraft, dollhouse building, baking, molded jello, cooking, canning, sewing, dollmaking, reading, gardening, drawing, painting, ceramics, mixed media art, collage, jewelry making…I’m basically Martha without a staff or estates to manage.
I live in South Jersey with my husband and youngest kiddo, and my two grown boys live nearby. If you pop by my Instagram, you might get to meet Panda, our Newfie mutt mix, or our obnoxious orange cat named Cheddar, or Meowth, who was adopted at peak Pokemon Go. Besides all the creative stuff, I’m also a paralegal for a social services organization – a job that gives me purpose and supports my creative endeavors.
I hope by hanging out here you feel empowered to embark on crafty misadventures with me!
Take on too many projects at once.
Have too many hobbies.
Get your family, friends, and co-workers involved in creating.
Learn something new.
Put the cray in crafty.
