Hello! I’m Jennifer, a Midwestern girl who moved to England in 2010. Pastry & Purls is where I will be recording my attempts at living a more creative and handmade life — mainly cooking, sewing, knitting and reading. You can also expect to read lots about my love for all things vintage. Modern life is wonderful, but also rushed and often impersonal. I hope to balance out those last two with conscious living. Follow along to see how my attempts go, and do comment with any tips or thoughts!
Feel free to drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
