Hello my name is Jenna and I have just entered the world of blogging. Maybe a little late to the party but I love making things and saving money and want to share my thoughts and experiments in diy with other people who are thrifty and have a need to create.
First of all let me tell you a little about myself. I live outside of Chicago with my boyfriend Ben and our two cats, Lucy and Gatsby. I’m originally from Fort Wayne, IN but moved a few years ago for my boyfriends job. I went to school for art and photography and have an etsy shop called Peppermint Emporium with my handmade jewelry and vintage finds at https://www.etsy.co/shop/PeppermintEmporium?ref=si_shop.
I love animals, especially cats, art, nature, history, antiques and vintage and making things. I draw paint, sew, embroider, make jewelry, and find joy in decorating my home. Unfortunately I live in a very expensive area and live in a small apartment but I try and make the most of the situation and have found ways to decorate for even the smallest apartments on small budgets. I love making things and try to save money whenever I can, and whenever I can do both is an added bonus!
I want to share my diy’s and beautiful finds with you and hopefully you will like my blog! I am a pinterest addict and get many diys off of pinterest so of course I will try and give credit where credit is due, and others are things that I have come up with, either out of necessity, my cheapness, or just dreamed up.
Oh and did I mention I love cats?
