April 2011

The saying goes, “April showers bring May flowers.” While the jury is still out on the “flowers,” at least the “showers” part has been very true in Cincinnati! Despite the rain, I’m excited about and ready for spring, and I hope you are, too.

Upcoming Event: Craft Festival, April 30

JennJill Designs will have a booth at the Boyd E. Smith Spring Craft Festival on Saturday, April 30, in Milford, OH.

The Boyd E. Smith Craft Festival is the perfect opportunity to find unique and meaningful gifts for your upcoming Mothers’ Day celebrations. There will be a scavenger hunt and other activities to occupy the kids, and for the over-worked mom or dad, the festival is hosting a “Spa Room,” where you can receive a relaxing hot stone massage.

CLICK HERE to view all the details, and I look forward to seeing you at the festival!

Artist Interviews

I’ve met some wonderful people during the last few months of JennJill Designs, and recently, I started a bi-weekly series on my blog to share with you profiles and interviews with some of my favorite fellow crafters. On March 23, I published the first article in the series, a wonderful and inspiring interview with Jarita Thomson of Jarita’s Creations. Today, I published the next installment, a discussion of art and faith with Carrie Mayer of Blessed Be’s.

I hope you enjoy these artist interviews and the new insight into the creative process they provide. If you have a favorite Etsy artist you’d like to learn more about, let me know! I’ll be happy to contact that artist for a future interview.

Gift Ideas and Treasuries

The past month featured two birthdays in my family: my father’s on March 28 and mine on April 4. In celebration of our birthdays, I created two gift treasuries, one featuring gifts for fathers and one full of my favorite items on Etsy. I hope you enjoy browsing these hand-selected collections of unique gifts and beautiful accessories.

That’s it for this month. We’ll be back next month with more news and interesting tidbits from JennJill Designs. May God bless you and yours with a wonderfully happy and healthy spring and Easter season!
