About Me and Jessie Street Designs

Hello There!
This blog was started to compliment my etsy shop, Jessie Street Designs.....but it's going to be so much more than that!  My hope is to share design, decorating, organization and fashion tips and also throw some recipes into the mix!!  Of course, there will be giveaways and information on upcoming sales and product additions to Jessie Street Designs.

A little about me:

My name is Jenny and I am a happily married stay-at-home mom to three beautiful, busy children - my four year old son and two and a half year old twin daughters!   I love my family, decorating/updating our 1980's house, reading, doing crafts, baking and sewing!  Here are a few more things about me:
  • According to everyone I know, I laugh and walk really LOUD!
  • Before I had kids, I worked for the government
  • Since becoming a mom, I've never worked so hard - EVER!
  • I love spending time at our cottage
  • If I could live there all year, I would.
  • If I could eat cookie dough all day, I would
  • I'm a serial gym joiner that rarely goes to the gym
  • I love reading blogs, they inspire me:)

About Jessie Street Designs:

The shop name, Jessie Street Designs, was inspired by my incredibly talented grandmothers - my maternal grandmother lived on Jessie Street and my paternal grandmother's first name was Jessie! In addition to many other things, my grandmothers taught me that nothing beats a handmade item and many of the dresses and sweaters they made for our family have been cherished and handed down through generations:)

Becoming a mom to three kids under three, I learned that it wasn't always easy to get to the stores to shop, so "while my pretty ones slept" I began sewing my twin daughters pillowcase dresses. This eventually became a passion of mine and grew from outfitting my children, to giving the dresses as gifts for my friends and family, to selling them in my own etsy store.

I will occasionally post some items I make on this site, but if you would like to view a wider selection, please check out the store here: http://www.jessiestreetdesigns.etsy.com/

That's it for now folks....thanks for stopping by and please come back again!
