I am Jessica McLaren, momma to my sweet little boy Walker, wife to my amazing husband Shea, and of course, dog mom to our lab/pointer cross, Lewis. I LOVE being creative, whether it’s with knitting, home decor, DIY projects, or working in the kitchen. I want to share it all with you!

I have always enjoyed expressing my creativity. As a child I would spend hours in my play room recreating crafts I saw on Art Attack, or mixing potpourri in my bedroom. As I got older I began to express my creative energy in other ways, like interior design. Being an aspiring designer at the age of 12, I created an entire vision board for my family’s living room, and my parents trusted me enough to use all of my ideas — accent wall and all!

I started knitting in 2010 with my mom’s support (she is an amazing knitter and quilter) and trusty YouTube. I love how knitting gives me the ability to create beautiful pieces with my own two hands.

My husband Shea is an incredibly talented Carpenter and has his own Construction company, McLaren Coastal Construction. With his expertise and my design ideas, we have created many amazing projects together, with lots more to come!
