I don't really have any questions now that I know that Jeanneoli is not an old family name! I cannot wait to see what questions people have and to read your answers!


can I come over?


will you please give us a really good crock pot recipe to try.


Just saw your blog in Tara Frey's book when I was at a bookstore browsing last week! So cool! What is your background? I mean, have you always been so artistic and crafty? Did you go to art school or have special training?

Becky @ Farmgirl Paints

How do you find time to homeschool, craft and keep your house clean?? You are like a superhero to me.

What was your very favorite memory from Brave Girl Camp??

Can you share a healthy recipe? I just have a feeling you are also a great cook. It's just a hunch;)

Modern Prairie Girl

Why don't you live closer?
How about that for a question?!

I do have some Paypal issues that can be done later. :)



Hmm. Love peeking at your blog :) We are contemplating homeschooling our 4yr. old {this fall} & just curious what curriculum you use? I have a little occasional shop & apparently we have a little of the same taste because the lovely Sara Duckett did some design work for me too :)
Looking forward to reading all the ques./answers!

Rachel from A Cupcake for Moose

What inspires you? What do you do when you feel a dry spell creatively? How do you incorporate your faith into your art or creative works? What do you like best about blogging?

Sorry for the slew of questions. :) Happy Tuesday!

1. If you could only eat one snack for the rest of our life, what would it be?
2. Can I steal your entire wardrobe?
3. What is your best advice for overcoming a fear of the bobbin?


I hated living in Colorado Springs. :)
What is it about your area that you love?


My question: What were 2-3 of the most important things you believe you did to get your creative business started in the beginning?

Action is my word for 2010. So asking this will help me as I feel I am to do something more with my art and creative desires. Did you start an Etsy store first etc..?

Thanks for being so open and real.

How do you like Colorado?

Why did you end up there?

Can we try harder to get together in the summer when I'm out there? Last summer I lost your phone number, I think.

When are you coming to Kansas?

How many kids do you have and how old are they?

Are they blonde?

Do you like cheesecake?

SEO Los Angeles

Hmm.. Lately, I am planning to have a business but I don't have any background of it. Could you give me some tips on how to start a good business?


What is your week like with homeschooling and running a business? Do you stick to a schedule to make sure everything gets done? Also, were you scared at all to open an etsy shop? How did you get most of your customers at first? I have so many more I would love to ask if only we could go grab a cup of coffee and chat.


when did you begin your creative journey? did you start out with altered art? i would love to try my hand at it and would love some tips and advice about where/how to start!!

The Little Red Shop

1. Other than Mrs. Ingalls, what did you want be when you grew up?

2. If you could rid the world of your greatest pet peeve, what would it be?

3. What is your favorite character name from a movie, book, or play? ("A Room With a View" is on and "Mr. Beebe" has always been a favorite of mine : )

Destiny (The Ruffled Nest)

1. Can you remind me who it was that took your recent family photographs?
2. Who is your favorite vintage Hollywood actress?
3. What's your favorite line in "It's a Wonderful Life?"
4. Would you be interested in helping me put together a local crafting group?
"Coffee and Crafts" is what I want to call it.

Don't feel the need to answer ALL of my questions...I'm just nosey! : )


fun. looking forward to monday.=)


What advice do you have for someone who would like to start a blog?

Stephanie Gimlin

Following in suite with the last question- what advice would you give to someone who has a blog but would like to gain followers, or attract more people?

Melissa Gruber

this is great, i can't wait to come back on monday for the answers.

wondering what tips you have to take my etsy shop to the next level? i have really enjoyed it, but want a little more, so i would love to hear your ideas.

thanks for sharing!


I have always wondered what your creative "space" looks like. Do you have a craft room or studio where you create? Would you be willing to share photos? :)

I would also love some words of wisdom for someone interested in starting a creative business- think- business license, copyright stuff, etc.



Hi Jeanne! Do you have any resources for a novice blogger? Fr'example, my photos are not punchy enough and I fixed them on Picasa, but can't seem to get them someplace I can retrieve them and put on my blog. Maybe you just think I should switch to Typepad? Patience, patience....

Sherry Williams

One thing I wonder about, is how creative women...who run businesses balance the financial part of it all. In order to start up something, you need supplies. Did you collect things over the years and then just start using those to get yourself out there? Do you think most women use family money/extra/fun money to start and then go from there and then try to stick with using the profits of what you sell? I don't have a lot to start up with and I find myself dipping in my family fun money more then I'd like. and then paying us back...and then borrowing again for more supplies. The goal is to exist on my own. :) I'm just curious how you started out. There is so much to be tempted by. So much that one could think they need in order to make their creative stuff even better.
Maybe I know my own answers--use what you have, do your best, get yourself out there. :) I'd just love to know how you keep it all balanced, once you start.
thanks for answering questions. what a great idea. :)

the wild raspberry
