Meet Jen

Hello there!! I’m Jen!! I am a Deaf Crafter that uses ASL and I can be very messy in my Studio which is in the basement, hence the name! My Studio is my haven! I LOVE going down there and getting creative in there! I love to do all kinds of crafting such as paper-crafting (scrapbooking/card-making) and Chalkin’ with Chalk Couture products. OH YEAH! I can’t forget to admit that I am a planner obsessed!! Yup; I’ve lost count of how many planners that I own, LOL!!!! My favorite scrapbooking/stamping company is Close to my Heart! I am a former consultant for them, and I still hold them dear to my heart.

I have been crafting for over 18 years now. I’m married to Jeff, hearing guy for24 years and we have 3 boys (they are all hearing and their ages are 22, 19 and 16) together. We have two grandsons age 4 and 2!

I also am bi-laterally implanted with cochlear implants from Advanced Bionics and have been since 2008.

We own few pets; Boxer name Dozer (age 4), and three rabbits, Snowball, Thumper, and Trooper.

All of my Chalk Couture projects can be found at

Thanks for checking the blog out! Please be sure to check back often to see what projects I come up with.  Enjoy your stay!  ❤️

Much Love,
