I am Jennifer Casa.
I enjoy making things by hand and find inspiration in everyday life. I knit, sew, cook, craft with my twin daughters, design, write, make music with my husband, snap lots of pictures - and I write about all that good stuff.
I truly enjoy the creative process, and love working in my small studio in northern Ohio designing original sewing, knitting and craft projects. (And I love to cook, too!) You may have seen my work in print and online and I love that the art + craft of making things by hand has connected me with fellow makers across the globe.
My first two books, Teach Yourself Visually Crafting with Kids (Wiley 2011) and Rainy Day Crafts with Kids (Wiley 2011), are filled with fun art and craft projects for you to do with your kids. It is my sincere hope that these books both entertain and inspire you to make creativity part of daily life with your children.
These days my creative focus is on designing patterns for the JCasa SHOP, getting ready for the opening of my new shop Vintage Made Modern, writing music with my band MildMannered, and putting the finishing touches on my next book.
Go on now. Make something special every day.
And make every day something special.
