“I could just make that ” see also ” I craft so I don’t stab people “

JessPop, also known as Jessica, is whiskey in a teacup. She is a lover of books, movies, the color red, chocolate, and life hacks. She’s quick to ignore housework, especially in favor of making things. Speaking of making things, she made two adorable humans, five year old Sweet G, and The Boy, who was born in July. Special thanks go out to her husband, Leo, for his help with that. She has a day job in a small non-profit, so nearly all crafting moments are stolen moments.

A newbie to the Silhouette, she calls her machine Cammy, and often gets into fights with it. She can, and will, fall down an Internet rabbit hole researching her hobbies, vacations, or any shiny “squirrel” that grabs her attention. The oldest of seven, and born to hippie type parents who left the city to raise their brood in the sticks, she’s a firm believer in self-sufficiency and loves to do homestead-y and Becky HomEc-y type things. She straight up adores Martha and credits Rachel Ray with teaching her how to cook. (Her mom taught her how to bake though)
