This is the weirdest part for me - writing about myself! As you know, my name is Jennifer Holmes and this is my blog called Simple Flourishes. I started blogging in July of 2008 after discovering paper crafting forums and reading all the wonderful things people were sharing on their blogs all over the world. And I thought to myself, "I can do that!" The best part of blogging is I get to combine my two favorite hobbies - web design and paper crafting. While I'm still new to web design, I love technology and anything to do with design. I've been crafting my entire life and have dabbled in a little bit of everything. I owe thanks to my aunt, Gail, who routinely gifted me with craft kits as a child. I learned the art of flower pressing, hooked rugs, cross stitch, and many other things. While some things have come and gone, stamping and paper crafting have always remained with me. And now I have been lucky enough to have some of my designs published in popular stamping magazines and have been invited to work on several design teams for stamp companies. You can read more about my design work here.
Oh, then there's the other stuff. I live in Washington State with my husband, Jeremiah, our daughter, Olivia, and our Mini Schnauzer, Maxwell. When I'm not stamping, I work in Behavioral Health as a contracting and community relations professional. It's a good life!
Thank you for visiting my blog! I look forward to hearing from you. Feel free to send me an email if you have any questions about my blog or design work.
