How About Orange | Jessica Jones
- #8 Best DIY
The What’s What: There is a definite color scheme at How About Orange, and it fits. The bright, cheery DIY projects beckon readers in whether they live in sunny California or the snowy plains of Middle America. As you browse through the tutorials on the site, such as making handmade key chains from just little wooden disks and Sharpies, you may find yourself checking to make sure you aren’t flipping through the pages of Martha Stewart or Country Living. The finished products don’t look handmade at all!
The Mama: Aside from being a wife, mom, and daughter (we get a chuckle when Grandma G, presumably Jones’s mother, comments on her blog posts), our favorite girl in orange, Jessica Jones, is an extremely talented graphic and textile designer who has her own business building logos for local and national companies.
