I was challenged to write 20 facts about me on my Instagram account (Bigfootsgirlfriend) and here’s what I came up with. This was difficult!
1: I started sewing by hand in 7th grade. I got my first machine in 8th. I got my first serger the next summer. I started selling patchwork clothes on ebay my freshman year.
2: I made more money on Ebay my Soph & Junior years in highschool selling handmade goods than I have in the last 10 years.
3: Vended my 1st festival at Summer Camp Music Fest in 2005 where I met my boyfriend.
4: I have to thank my HS sewing teacher & the Stitchin Bitches for my sewing skills.
5: Josh & I have been dating 9+ years.
6: I was preemie & born 9 weeks early at 2lbs 2oz
7: i didn’t want kids until I’m 30, now I can’t imagine not having Jillian.
8: I have moved 9 times in 9 years. The longest rental we stayed was 2 years.
9: I have been to over 300/490 concerts/shows.
10: Most of which is Josh’s bands.
11: Grew up in the country in the middle of a farm.

15: My daughter is named after my mom, her name was Jill Ann, and my daughters is Jillian Angel.
16: We love camping, hiking, and travelling. Love our adventures.
17: Lost a year of my life the year after my mom passed. My dad bought a bar that I managed. I worked 100 hours a week that year. My dad lost control to alcohlism and closed the bar. It was open exactly 1 year and wasted all her inheritance on it. Worst year of my life.
18: I have never been on a rollercoaster, had the chance last summer but was pregnant.
19: I love everything handmade.
20: I used to hate cooking. I wish I learned more from my mom now that I am loving it and learning more things. She was a “clean eater” & I strive to be more like her.
