little_girl_makes_250x250_retinaHi there and welcome! My name is Jennie.

I’m a blogger, author, mom to a sweet little girl, wife to an amazing husband, and a creative girl living in the Pacific Northwest. I started Little Girl Designs in 2014 as a way of funneling all of my creative energy into one place and never realized how much it would change my life (for the better!)

If you wish you had more time for your creative projects or are looking for inspiration and encouragement in your creative life, you’ve come to the right place. At Little Girl Designs, I write about nurturing your creative side whether that means sharing a simple craft tutorial or showing you how to DIY your own personal retreats (more on that in a minute.)

I’ve found so many women struggle with lack of time these days. My passion is to help you rediscover the fringe hours and reconnect with your creative side. One of the things my readers love most is we’re all learning together and that even the smallest changes make a difference. I’d love for you to join our creative community!

What You’ll Find Here on the Blog

I’m on a mission to encourage you to make creativity a priority in your life. My hope is that after you visit the Little Girl Designs blog, you’ll be inspired to dig through your craft supplies and get creating!

I offer free creative challenges (like this one), free letter-writing challenges (like this one or this one), and workbooks and classes to help get you back into your creative groove. I also regularly write about creativity as a lifestyle because I’m a firm believer that every little moment of creating adds up into something greater.

I’m Also a Big Fan of Creative Retreats

I’m a believer in taking personal retreats to work on creative projects, reassess, and recharge and created a book where you’ll learn how to DIY your own retreat. I don’t think you should have to pay a lot of money in order to work on your creative projects, and my workbook will help you craft personal retreats that meet your needs. If you’re curious about what other creative women are saying about this workbook, click here and read more.

I Also Like To Write About . . .

Here and there, I also write about the business of blogging. When I started this particular website, I had been blogging for nearly ten years, but I had no idea I could actually make money doing something I loved so much. I read an eBook on how to boost your blog income got so excited. You mean I can write, make things, help people, be super creative . . . and get paid for this gig? Talk about a dream come true! If you’re curious if you “have what it takes” to be a blogger, take this fun blogging assessment. It’s free and really interesting too!
