i have a good beat that you can dance to. i bake, i stitch, i sew, i craft, i create and take pictures of every single thing that surrounds me. i am a bit of a nut that way but documenting those everyday normal pretties makes me happy and helps push to see the world through rose colored glasses when really i want to crawl back into bed with a pretty handmade quilt over my head.
kids get their crafty on at scrumdilly-do! and you check out my crafty fun at scrumdillydilly and while yer at it, the mister and i just finished up a road trip of alifetime and you can join us at goin' with the a-go-gos.
you can also follow my tumblr, facebook & twitter:

"Jessica is the one who 'taught' me to take photos. I found (and studied) her photos of a felt/craft fair last year, and have loved every photo since! I think she has the most fabulously colorful life ever, and I'm constantly entertained with Jessica's "week in review" mosaics!!"

"Yay for Jessica! She keeps her TV in an old refrigerator!
She listens to your teenage worries and makes yummy smoothies for her house guests in the morning.
I love Jessica and she is one of those special people who's helped me regain my faith in humanity.
Let's all chew ice and be happy for there is Jessica!
Hmmm.. I should be a cheer leader."

"I like you. I like it when you give me clothes. I like it when you order me Thai with a GIANT iced tea and pizza with garlic. I like it when you share a pistachio bundt cake with me. I like you when you wear Easter bonnets. I like you when you're kooky and fun. And when you're not. Sometimes I like it when you fall under the water cooler. I like you when you laugh so hard you can't breathe. I like you when Superman is falling on your head. Even if you weren't this wildly entertaining, I would still like you 'cus you're my friend. Love, BlueJay"

Her colourful world of little robots and "machintrucmuche" as we say in France, her love for happy--childy-casual-but-funny pictures... what a wonderful girl she seems to be!"
