(little girl dress created by jeanne 5 years ago)
(savannah wearing one of jeanne’s creations from 2012 )
i decided to turn this in to a little series about women who’ve inspired me. tomorrow i have a little list of a few more friends & the character qualities that i think stand out the most when i think of them.
about five years ago when i began reading blogs and then venturing in to blogging myself, jeanne was one of the first i read. the images of caroline shown above are in a dress that jeanne made. it was a heartbreaker when she outgrew that little number.
since that time i have watched jeanne develop her own unique and wonderfully creative style including mixed media, jewelry, developing ecourses & my personal favorite-designing her own line of bags and fashion pieces.
jeanne has a generous heart and loves to encourage others starting out in business. while she is wildly creative she also lives an intentional life where her faith & her family come first. she shares, in her witty & transparent spirit how she balances her art, her work, her relationships and homeschooling. i respect her as an entrepreneur and wish her continued success.
my collection of jeanne oliver bags is somewhat extensive and may require an intervention. her camera bags are often my favorite in each release. i’ve carried the worn out grey one shown below since i began my photography business . i think every session i’m on someone asks about my bag.
a few weeks ago jeanne released the Thoreau Colletion. once again i was so impressed with each piece. and yes, especially the bags. the Ellison Camera Bag is yet another gorgeous option for a stylish photographer.
(just a little tip, jeanne’s pieces often times sell out quickly so keep an eye out for her release dates.)
thank you jeanne for teaching me so many things, not the least of which is living intentionally & having a heart full of generosity. thank you for being you! i love you friend~
