We have some semi-sad news to share. Our beloved Jenny is moving to St. Louis, Missouri. While it’s great that she is returning home, we will miss her dearly! Have no fear, she will still be drawing for us and will always be a part of the Eat.Sleep.Knit family! As we think back on the little sunshine we call Jenny, here are some of our favorite moments and quips that make Jenny her lovely self:
From Erin: Jenny is kind of my muse. Everybody else thinks my ideas are okay or borderline bad but when I tell Jenny, she is always super into it. Then she adds a ridiculous twist that takes my ideas to a level that is bizarrely effective. If I could give her a different job title, it would be Camp Director. She is the type of person that you always want to talk to because she is always supportive of your feelings and ideas. My favorite memory of her was the day we realized that, due to lack of reading material in the bathroom, we both resorted to reading the instructions in the tampon box…in all the languages and have read them enough times to recite. Enough said. Jenny is awesome!
From Lindsay: Jenny took the time to make me a beautiful CD case for my wedding songs. Not just an insert for a plastic case but an actual CD case out of cardstock! It really meant a lot that she would create something so special to commemorate my special day. Jenny is also the only person in the office who is constantly in a good mood. You rarely find people like that. She is one-of-a-kind and bright like a rainbow!
From Jess: Jenny is always super fun to be around! She has an infectious good mood and has brightened my day many times. My favorite thing about Jenny is her “peanut butter muffins”. When hearing “peanut butter muffins”, most people naturally think, “okay, a regular Otis Spunkmeyer muffin”. Not Jenny! She actually means an English muffin with peanut butter on top! But when Jenny mentions her “peanut butter muffins”, we all know just what she means!
From Emily L: I will miss EVERYTHING about Jenny! She is an incredibly creative, cheerful, and crazy woman with all kinds of wacky awesome ideas in her head. She is so much fun to be around because she is encouraging, not judgmental, genuinely caring, enthusiastic, cheerful, fun, and our resident goofball! My favorite thing about Jenny is that she is not afraid to be ridiculous. Embarrassing stuff happens to everyone but she sees embarrassing moments as fun stories…like in this great picture of one of Jenny’s adventures in knitting. It’s just a fact: I will miss Jenny adding to the weird charm of ESK!
From Emily K: Though I only had the pleasure of sharing an office with Jenny for a few weeks, I immediately liked her! I mean, how can you not love someone who listens to books on tape while drawing an amazing cat knitting a unicorn’s tail? Aside from being an insanely talented artist, she has this big beautiful smile that is absolutely contagious! That smile was the first thing that welcomed me on my first day at ESK. She is not afraid to be herself and, from what I’ve gathered while writing this blog post, Jenny has definitely made her mark on this office and the ESK community. I can’t wait until she flies back for Black Friday so I can get to know her better!
From Tiffany: Jenny is an upbeat and friendly spirit! One thing I truly admire about Jenny is she is alwayds there to help support everyone in the office. Whether it is a good time or bad, Jenny never fails to be there with a kind smile and listening ear. I will definitely miss how she can put a smile on anyone’s face.
Feel free to comment and share your favorite memories with Jenny at Knit Night, your favorite drawings, or bid her a loving farewell! But seriously, she’s not dying. Just moving. But we will miss her all the same!
