About Jessica


Hey, guys!  I’m Jessica, and it’s all my craziness you’ll find here on Mad in Crafts.  I used to teach high school English (did you catch the Hamlet reference in my blog’s name?), but now I use my English degree to write craft tutorials and snappy Facebook statuses.  When I’m not blogging I am probably chasing my two kids around, keeping up with one of the dozens of TV shows I watch, or avoiding fish.

The Mad House About

Early in 2012, my husband and I purchased our first home. Since then I have spent the majority of my creative energy redecorating and redoing the house from top to bottom.  I finish one project and have two more I am excited to start.

I have also written for SNAP Creativity, Decor Hacks, and Crafterminds! In 2013, I released my first ebook, Mad Writing Skills: A Non-Threatening Guide to Grammar and Writing for Creative Bloggers.  In 2015, I co-authored a second ebook with Angie Holden from The Country Chic Cottage.  The book is called The Beginner’s Guide to Short Video: How to Create, Publish, and Promote Short Videos and it is available on ejunkie.

I am excited to be a brand ambassador for Plutonium Paintâ„¢ and HP’s MyPrintly.com and on the Elmer’s Craft-It Team!
