Interview | How About Orange

Interview

Several months ago I was interviewed by Living Creatively, an Australian online magazine dedicated to arty, crafty, handmade goodness, and the business of making things. It's very lovely. The article has just been posted in the current issue. Thank you, LC!

(Of course my mom had to write me to say how amused she was to hear me described as a "thrill-seeker." Well, just to prove her wrong, I'm going sky-diving now. With my DIY parachute. Bye.)

Charlene said...

Congratulations on being crowned the "Citrus Queen" I'm sure you aced the talent competition, but were there swimsuit and evening gown competitions too? I'm imagining you sewing your own gown out of your fabric!

I'm back. The sky-diving didn't work out, since the instructor took one look at my homemade parachute and made me go home. "Cute, but not functional," was the verdict.

Charlene, there was some stiff competition for the title, but I clinched it in the interview portion. As my platform, if crowned the Citrus Queen, I vowed to make sure that all U.S. Americans have maps. Orange ones.

Cool, and have fun sky-diving!

Great article! I love your office. My iMac needs a new desk and I just love your tables! Do you mind sharing where they are from?
Thanks!

They're mismatched. One is our old little dining room table from a furniture store I forgot the name of long ago, and the other is from Ikea. The sort where you choose the legs and then choose a top. And that one came unfinished, so I varnished it.

Stephanie said...

Awesome!

Jessica, I really love your work. You've got such a great, fearless eye! Really enjoy your blog, too.
