Nice to meet you....

well, it will be nice to meet you in September when we all gather for the event. I have to tell you that when these three amazing ladies asked me to teach this year I jumped at the chance. I had heard such wonderful things about the event from last year so I am so so excited to be traveling to Utah to join in the fun this time. But I guess I should back up just a little and introduce myself...I am Janet Hopkins, co-owner of House of 3.

Just a little about myself, I live in Texas with my husband Rick and our four children so there is never a dull moment around here. I love anything vintage and the hunt for finding the vintage treasures is really the best part. We just recently renovated our house when our last daughter was born and I was lucky enough to redo my studio as well so I thought I would give you a little peek into where I create:

I think one of my favorite things in my space is my large island that I work on. It is two ikea dressers with a granite piece on top. Lots of storage and a great work surface that I can spread out on! My other favorites are my clock and my vintage cake pan that I use to store all of my buttons and jewels in so that they will be close to me when I need to rummage through them for that perfect embellishment for my next project.

I hope you enjoyed seeing a little piece of my world....I look forward to seeing old friends and making new ones in September!
