About Jemma

Welcome to At Home With Jemma

Hi, I am Jemma

A passionate home-crafter, who just loves to talk and write too! I get excited when I am able to share my artistic designs, creations and tutorials with you! I began writing At Home With Jemma in 2013 with a desire to teach and share my heartfelt creations. You see I believe that we are all born with creative talents and often times we just need a little encouragement to discover them, so think of me as your guide to harmony and creativity! When Makers congregate they empower one another and their communities too!

Westerner at heart

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."

The Communicator

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.

The Baker

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!

The Gardener

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!

The Maker

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 Workshops

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.
