Meet the Designer: Jeanine from The Crafting Fiend



H'EH! (that is my Canadian way of saying "hey"... in 'dad joke' format...ha!) Now that I have amused myself; Hi! I'm Jeanine Thomlinson! I like to make pretty things and I live on the Canadian prairies with my 2 girls, ages 6 and 8, my husband, and our mini schnauzer named Xena. When I'm not sewing I enjoy gardening and baking bread and reading long books in the sunshine.
I blog over at The Crafting Fiend  about the things I make for myself and my 2 daughters, I am more casual on the Insta with my everyday life, and I am on pinterest too.  I've been involved with the online sewing community since 2010 after I had my first daughter. I started sewing because I really needed a creative outlet to break up the monotony of dishes and laundry and the fetching of snacks for the tiny humans. 
I've always loved creating and how I feel accomplished from the process. This year both my kids are in school full time and I am really hoping to challenge my creativity, processes, and self and have set creative goals for myself to achieve this year. Joining in on the fun of Project Run and Play seemed like a great challenge to kick start myself into gear towards those goals. I really am excited to see what all the amazing competitors and all you sewing a long at home make during this season on Project Run and Play! Now it is time for me to crank up some classic rock and get some sewing started!
