about me

Once upon a time, I was an art historian who taught classes to college students about things like the history of photography and modern and contemporary art. I read lots of books, graded papers, prepared lectures, and I loved every moment of it. These days, I spend my time as a stay-at-home mom to 3 amazing and needy little people who brighten my life in ways I never imagined.

As someone who has always enjoyed making things, whether with yarn or fabric or paper or food, I've learned to become extremely productive when my kids are sleeping! One of the most enjoyable aspects of my crafting is designing, and my kids are my biggest inspiration. Much of what I make are things that my kids demand ask for--Transformers, Star Wars, My Little Pony, super heroes, fire helmets...

The business-side of my knitting, crocheting and sewing (jkwdesigns) came about when friends and friends of friends began asking me to make things for them. So what started as a hobby has turned into something more, and I love every bit of it. I'm blessed to be doing something that I love, surrounded by the people I love!

Happy Crafting!
