Biography

Jolie embraced crafting at an early age. She believes that solving a creative problem can be more fun than the craft itself and her ‘making do with what you have’ philosophy may have stemmed from necessity, but it was cemented by her love of MacGyver. Growing up in Portland, she has seen this incredible town evolve into a welcoming home for every type of artist imaginable and she has blogged under the name That Jolie Girl for over six years showcasing local artists as well as her own craft adventures. She is happily married to her teen love and her dream is to be a stay at home mom with no kids. Her endless hobbies, which include knitting, embroidering, photography, creating jewelry and painting, ensure that she will never be bored. Her love of the handmade guarantees that there is almost always a craft tool in her hand. Contact Jolie at thatjoliegirl@gmail.com
