jillymama's | Jill Maldonado |Great Barrington, MA The first thing I remember making is…A pom pom guy (yes, I made my own pom pom out of mustard yellow acrylic yarn) with google eyes and felt feet holding a sign with a toothpick stick that said, “#1 Dad”. It was Father’s Day and I was 11.
I knew then, that…..I had the power to imagine something and set out, step-by-step, to bring my vision (more or less) to fruition.
Today’s passion is…Rescuing discarded textiles (fabric stashes, pants and t-shirts) and using them to make useful and beautiful things.
In my music player you will find….Whatever my 12 year old daughter is into at the moment…SO hard to keep up! Maybe fiddle music or any one of my old favorites like, Green Day, The Cranberries and The Beastie Boys. Sometimes nothing…ahhh blessed silence!
Chocolate Cake. Pro or Con? Boy howdy – PRO – with ganache, not frosting.
