About Me


My name is Jenny

I want you to know that no matter where you live, who you love, or what your beliefs are, you are welcome here. 

Thank you for visiting Crafts & Camera . I feel that the “about me” page is so important because this is my viewers first impression of who I am and what this blog is about.

First, I want you to know that I am passionate about writing and helping both people & animals. I’ve been writing ever since I had my first Lisa Frank journal and have never stopped. This is my first professional blog and it is extremely important to me. My goal is to bring you affordable DIY’s, local & travel photography, book reviews, real life experiences, financial help, and motivation to help us all get through it.

Secondly, it is important to me that you know I have not traveled the easiest road. I got Mono my senior year but went on to obtain my GED. When I was 21, I was unexpectedly thrown out of my house with my belongings on the garage floor. I had a good friend take me in. I truly know what it is like to feel scared about where your next meal is coming from. Despite all of this, I worked full time, got back into college, and eventually graduated with my Associate Degree. I’ve had more college major changes than I have fingers. In my 20’s I also got married, moved to Virginia, and shortly after got divorced.

I have learned that life is always changing and that we must learn to adapt. And of course, the only way to do that is with coffee, beer, and/or wine! Many different topics will be discussed in my blog. Debt is a huge topic that I feel is really hurting our economy. So many young adults are naive and have a lack of guidance (like myself did) as to how to handle money. Continuing on this same line of thought, I often see a lot of  DIY’s that require a supply list a mile long. My goal is to share easy savings tips and affordable DIY’s.  Crafting, photography, and reading are very therapeutic for me. They are wonderfully affordable and healthy hobbies. (Despite popular belief, you do *not* need an expensive camera to take a good picture).

Thank you for visiting. I hope you find a picture or article on my page that warms your heart. So many people need comfort right now and it is my hope you find some on my page.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns I would love to hear from you! Please email me  here.
