Blah, blah, blah 😉Hi there! Thanks for stopping by. My name is Jenny Stark. I live in Utah with my family.
Handcrafts have always held a special place in my heart. As a girl, I remember cherishing a sweet white and pink crochet blanket doll, a charming fabric scrap doll and a wooden cradle with pretty handmade bedding. Now that I am grown, I take great pleasure in creating beautiful things and gifting them to others. There is such a sense of satisfaction and happiness in a gift well made – a gift that is one of a kind and intended for someone you love or care about.
Over the years I have engaged in many different types of crafts, from sewing and quilting to scrapbooking and papercrafts to beading and jewelry making and let’s not forget needle arts! If I had to pick one favorite hobby, I would have to say crochet. I learned to crochet about 12 years ago and just feel a bit of serenity when hook and yarn come together. Next to that would be loom knitting. It is always so satisfying to see a hank of string turn into a beautiful thing. Beading finds it’s way into many of my days and various other projects squeeze in where they can. With a busy household to manage, I tend to gravitate toward projects that can quickly be done and with kids to please, I look for projects that are lots of fun.
When I was in High School, I thought I wanted to be a magazine editor. Or an author 🙂 Maybe write the next great novel. Now I can’t imagine my life any different than it is. Time shifts us, changes who we are and what we want. What I want most now is to raise my children to live happy lives and to be positive members of their own families and communities. Anything above that is frosting on the cake. I feel extremely blessed to be a Mom, Wife, Daughter, Sister and Friend.
Speaking of frosting 😉 I’ve been lucky enough to be involved in a few fiber related ventures in the last few years. I’ve done a few sample knits for publications, have a few patterns and articles to my credit and had the opportunity to participate in a loom knitting demo dvd too. So exciting! I don’t know what the future holds but I know needle arts will always be a part of my life.
This blog features my patterns, some tutorials, my line art and a little peek into my life. I hope I might be able to give you the joy and fulfillment that crafting brings to me and that you will always feel welcome here.
