{Welcome Guest Designer Jessica Kephart}

WOW!! Today we would like to give a Warm Welcome to our fabulous Guest Designer: Jessica Kephart from Homespun Elegance!!! She is such a sweetheart.  This month we are doing things a little bit different with our guest designers.  Jessica will be featuring a project for each day of the week this week and our other very fabulous Guest Designer CallyAnne will be featuring a project each day next week.  Please be sure to stop by each day and give some love to our very talented guest designers.
Ok so let's learn a little more about Jessica Kephart shall we???

 The Jessica Kehart I know is a very talented crafter.  She has a huge heart and loves helping promote other talented crafters.  Jessica is involved in numerous blogs, design teams and humanitarian projects.  She also has been published in several different magazines.  Jessica puts 100% in each and every project.  Jessica also has a sweet little guy named Mason whom loves to help his mom in her creative process!  We are honored to have Jessica be one of our guest designers.

Here is a little more about Jessica: I started crafting with cross stitching when I was 7 years old!  In my early 20s I was diagnosed with cancer and I had a lot of time off of work while on active duty in the military!  I began to dabble in all different types of crafts!  I made everything from candles to jewelry to bath fizzies and salts and even on stroke painting!  It was not until my son was a year old that I learned what paper crafting was all about.  I learned to love it very quickly and realize all of the products and mediums available!  The hardest (and most time consuming) part for me is to decide which papers, patterns and elements should go together for a project!  That is why I love Heartstring Designs housecalls kits!  They take all of the guess work out of it for me and with the newest trendiest products on the market! Can't go wrong!!
