Featuring: Hopeful Creations

This is Jennifer's first year participating in our show and we are so excited to have her! You can see more of her beautiful handmade items on her facebook page!

How long have you been creating your art?
I have loved making things by hand since I was a young girl. Now I enjoy working with my young daughter on some projects as well. 
What are you favorite colors to work with?
I'm a fan of warm tones, but really just love colorful projects in general. 

How do you find inspiration?
The beauty in God's creation is my main source of inspiration. My love for family and friends and knowing their personal taste encourages me to create with them in mind. Making beautiful things that are also useful keeps me motivated.
What time of day do your creative juices get going?
 I ponder ideas throughout the day usually, but end up working at night when my four children are sleeping.
Do you listen to anything why you create, or do you prefer peace and quiet?
 I enjoy music and many times work with an eclectic mix of fun tunes varying from Christian praise music or acoustic favorites or southern rock.
Is there a special meaning behind your work?
This past year and a half, I've created items mainly with the goal of donating a portion of the profit to a precious family's foundation named in honor of their two year old who was killed in a back-over accident. Abigail's Legacy of Hope aids others in giving life to orphans who desperately need the hope of a family. Our name "Hopeful Creations" is inspired by the legacy of this child and her impact on so many of us.
