A Giveaway from Volume 25!





Her Shop ~ Volume Twenty-Five, Her Blog ~ The Blog, Art and Inspiration

"With each piece of art I create, it is my hopes that it will give at least one person the warm fuzzies. I believe a heartfelt customer testimonial is just about the greatest payment you can receive. It is then that I truly feel like an artist.

Many people ask what the story is behind the name vol25. In January of 2008 when I opened the doors to my little shop (via etsy.com) I was 25 years old, and vol25 was like opening a new volume in my life, which in turn has created several new chapters for me.

I am a completely self taught artist, constantly inspired by every day moments. I have the most amazing thoughtful husband of 6 years, I am a mother to two sweet girls, 5 and 1 1/2 years old. They keep me on my toes, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

A little more about me:
..................................................
First off my name is Jessica. I am the voice behind vol.25.

I find expressing myself through each piece of art rewarding, and stress relieving.

I enjoy cooking. Although I admit to not being THE greatest cook.

You may find me curled up on the couch, enjoying a huge bowl of Tillamook Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream. mMmM

I worked at a Chevrolet dealership for 3 years and am proud to recognize the year and make of most vehicles.

I believe that sleeping in, should be considered somewhat of a sport. It does take training to master, especially when a baby is introduced into your "scheduled" life.

I enjoy capturing life's (the mundane, and not so mundane) moments with my 10mp sony a-300.

We own a house built in 1892. While I absolutely adore the age of our home, with all its character, I would love to one day build our own home.

Someday I would like to own a 1969 Ford Mustang Fastback, or a Mach1.

My hope is that at least one person will connect with each piece of art I create."

  20. The prints are lovely, but the philosophy behind them make them invaluable!!! I am a mosaic artist in So. Cal who just started a blog which I am trying to "balance" so the bicycle had extra meaning for me. http://joeys-peices-of-paradise.blogspot.com/
