Mini Wednesday - O Happy Day Handmade

Meet  Jessika of  O Happy Day Handmade :

I grew up underfoot in my Nana's fiber art studio-surrounded by dye, silk, wool and the joy of creating. My collision course with art began there and has been unstoppable ever since. My career path has taken me from directing a rural non-profit, peer-counseling youth street workers, and running a licensed preschool, to operating a high end jewelery design company and now to graphic design/marketing.

When I became a mother at 21 I started focusing on art as a way to stay sane. Six years and another daughter later I am finally able to pursue creating full time. Now my children will grow up underfoot in my studio-while I craft beautiful things for people like you. A perfect circle!

Modern life can be rushed and chaotic but childhood should never be! My goal is to create everything myself, locally, with the smallest environmental impact.

Jessika is also editor of  http://www.ohmyhandmade.com/
