Jenny Eliza comes to life

Working with fabric designs on a two-dimensional level is always incredibly fun and rewarding, but there is nothing in this world like opening a box with the actual materials there for you to hold and touch and hug!

Just when we can’t imagine it getting any happier or more exciting, we begin building meaningful little dresses, pillows and trinkets out of these fabrics and that is when the true magic happens. Watching Jenny Eliza come to life is incredible — the scale and the colors are a treat to the soul, and the way they bounce and play with one another is simply the best eye candy a gal could ask for.

July is just around the corner, when these fabrics will be available in JoAnn Fabric and Crafts…. and then we get to watch all of YOU work your magic!

Mollie Makes US Edition!!

One of my favorite folks is in the very first US Edition of Mollie Makes and she utilized Beauty Queen in the sweetest of ways..Look at these Yummy sachets.  Kim Layton is just the kindest and sweetest girl on the planet. Truth be told she had 20,000 followers on twitter and she actually acknowledged me when I reached out.  Sometimes folks can get way to important about the numbers and the followers and forget they are actually real people following them.  I think its so important to acknowledge folks cause really people all want to be seen. I have never forgotten her for that.  We have become good friends and I love how she educates Etsy sellers on her blog Everything Etsy and shows ways for sellers to showcase and promote their product.  She and her husband do tutorials and sort through all the Etsy information to bring you ways to reach your Etsy audience. They are just a couple of good folks and I was so happy they were in Mollie Makes first US edition.  So get your copy and pour through the wonderful inspiring pages of Mollie Makes found here.

Jenny Eliza

Jenny Eliza was my mom’s nick name for me and it always made me feel sooooooo good. Mom’s nick names had a way of doing that.  With that in mind Jenny Eliza for JoAnn’s has the same feel good character that describes that cozy feel mom communicated every time she chirped my name.  I love Jenny Eliza, the scale, the colors, all perfect for quilting, and sewing beautiful clothing and home designs.  Madeline captured the happiness in this cool graphic below with this wonderful layered dress.  She’s so cool!!!!

I hope you’ll be standing by when this arrives at your local store!!  We hope that it tickles your soul and inspires you to do pretty!!!  Please follow Jenny Eliza on facebook for the latest updates.  …as always thanks for dropping by we are so happy to have you!!

I love Mary Fons

Ok it’s no secret.  I just love her heart and her ability to make you feel welcome and part of something great.  She is so super excited about life, about love, about quilts!!  Most of you know her through her show Quilty on PBS.  Recently I had the good fortune to meet Mary when she came to my home about two months ago and I tell you It was if I knew her my whole lifetime.  It was girl talk central and I just so enjoyed her company As well as my all around Gal Pal Susan Morgan who introduced us.  Believe me an overnight was not out of the question but they had plans the next day. …. I pictured us in (what else)  Pajamas getting CRay CRay.  What can I say?  I actually had the opportunity to fly to Iowa yup with Springs Creative for the Jenny Eliza Brand for JoAnns Fabric and Craft and tape a PBS show for Fons and Porter..yes!! in the same exact room as Marianne Fons and Liz Porter, I know I know I know…so giddy and trying to act professional when inside I was like Check Me Out!!!!! So Mary has just come out with an amazing Quilt Book called Make + Love Quilts and will be signing May 20th at City Quilter in NYC from 6-8!!  That’s a big deal and a big honor for anyone.  She is so approachable so fun and so easy to be with oh and did I say her quilts are divine??  I meant to open with that.  Please go to her facebook watch her gorilla marketing style video for Make + Love Quilts and her opening a fedex package  with her book inside and then you will see why I love her so much.  Like all of us in the SisBoomer Jenny Eliza Family we know how to have fun…Fabric and quilts just make us fun to be with!! Oh and get a daily dose of Mary at her blog PaperGirl !
