Tell ALL Tuesdays :: Jennifer of Noodle and Lou Studio

Hurrah...it's TUESDAY!
I'm really very excited to introduce you to Jennifer from NOODLE and LOU STUDIO...
These Tell ALL Tuesdays are so special to me...we get a glimse of our Fabulous Readers and they have all been great with me and responded SO positively to letting go of their daily ongoings...so that all of you (and I) can enjoy their stories.(Thank you!)



So...without further adieu...let us introduce you to the the lovely Jennifer, from one of my fave blogs (I know I have many)...Noodle and Lou Studio... make sure to go over there and say hello.
 
Tell us a little about the Town you live in... & have you always lived there?
I live in the suburbs of Chicago…Naperville to be exact. It has a great little downtown with a beautiful river walk. It’s lots of fun to take the boys there in the spring and summer…just to walk and eat ice cream and enjoy the lovely outdoors! We have lived here almost 2 years. I grew up in south Florida. Yes, I am so cold.
If you could move anywhere tomorrow, where would it be?
I adore San Francisco. I get a bucket of money too, right?

 How structured is your day usually?
I have 2 boys, ages 9 and 5...so some things are sort of structured. Like getting up for school and breakfast, homework after school and dinner around the same time, bedtime at 8. Besides that…it’s slightly chaotic! I work out of my home studio, so I’m always juggling work with home stuff and kids yelling for my help. We just kind of deal with it as it comes. One day I’ll catch up with the laundry!
What did you do today?
I took photos & uploaded and resized them for my shop update tonight. Answered emails, played with Henry (my kindergartner), ate dinner with my family, had my shop update, answered more emails and watched American Pickers (love that show you guys!) with my hubby! Shop update days are pretty busy and I’m usually held up in my studio all day.

Are you a cat or dog person?
Dog. But I love cats too. We can’t have a dog right now, but we have our sweet rescue cat Mazzy. We have had her for the past 13-14 years!

 Are you a breakfast, lunch or dinner girl?
Dinner!

If you had 6 friends over for Dinner what would you make for them?
Tacos. And of course we would then need margaritas.

How old were you when you knew you were on the right path in your Life?
Probably early 30’s. My family was growing and I was starting my business.

 Who /what drove & inspired your love to create?
I can’t remember a time when I didn’t want to create…I think it’s just in my blood. My Nana and PopPop were very creative. My Nana with sewing and gardening and cooking…I wanted to be just like her. And my PopPop made fabulous things out of wood like my childhood dollhouse. I saw the value and importance of making things with your own hands.

 Tell us something not too many people know about you.
I have 2 tattoos.

 Shoe choice::flats or heels?
Flats. I’m tall and I always feel like an amazon when I wear heels!

 What was the last book you read?
The Principles of Uncertainty by Maira Kalman. I’ve read/looked at it a billion times. I adore her.

 What advice would you give others just starting out?
 Be true to yourself and your own style. Be patient. Be caring and giving. Be sweet to yourself and don’t give up! Love what you do!

Name 5 blogs you love visiting, and tell us why.

 
1. My sweet pal Catherine at Red Shoes (redshoesllc.typepad.com) because she keeps it real…she has a fab style and she is so funny and talented.

 
2. Carissa at The Brown Eyed Fox because she is such a fabulous photographer and always has something gorgeous to look at and something inspirational to read.

 
3. Poppy Talk for the awesome eye candy and to see all the cool things people are creating and designing!

 
4. Elsa Mora http://elsita.typepad.com/elsita/ …elsita is so amazing. She is incredibly prolific and an unbelievable talent. I adore her work and style.

 
5. Anna Maria Horner http://annamariahorner.blogspot.com/ because she has a darling family and an inspiring career and I SO wish I could sew like her.

THANK YOU so much Jennifer...I so enjoy reading about your everyday Life...I SO know the feeling about "One day I'll catch up with Laundry!"
