Welcome to At Home With Jemma
Hi! I am Jemma…
I am a Western gal at heart but I have called Texas home for 30 years. I grew up on a potato farm in Idaho. My parents were salt of the earth folks who worked hard and loved big. They instilled in me the value of hard work, of creating and the importance of being authentic.
A favorite quote of mine is from Hamlet when Polonius’s tells his son;
“To Thine Own Self Be True.”
With a background in Library Science and English I am an excellent communicator. I have spent my life teaching: as a Mother, Grandmother, substitute and pre-school teacher, director of VBS and also served for several years as a Girl and Boy Scout leader.
I show my love of home, family, and friends by baking, cooking and tweaking all types of recipes and I share them right here with you.
If I haven’t given the recipe a whirl, tasted it, and liked it, I am not about to share it.
You’ll get the best that me and my Kitchen and I have to offer! I Promise!
My flower and vegetable garden are a vital part of my life and produce abundant flowers and vegetables.
My goal is to share with you successful tips on how to maximize your garden space, weed control, pest control, watering issues and at the same time grow strong and healthy plants!
Amy Poehler, Nick Offerman and NBC noticed my love of making and my passion for creating from the heart. So I made my Making It debut on National Television in July 2018 On Making It.
This was an event of a lifetime for me and forever changed the way I see creating and myself too.
It is important to me to share craft projects that you can do too.
I’ll show you step by step instructions on how to create successful projects that are gift giving worthy and they won’t break your budget either! If you don’t want to make them you’ll find them in my Etsy Shop. JemmasHome.
In my world crafting is a gift from our hearts to give to ourselves and others. Nothing says I love you as much as a handmade item.
My interactive workshops are designed as a Make and Take. They are a fun and inspiring mix of creative techniques combined with a motivational presentation on unlocking the creativity within yourself. You will be encouraged to express your natural creativity through imagination and design. Everyone will take home a Maker patch. As we work together as a community of Makers we discover the empowerment of creating and unleash the creativity of our unique individuality.
