About Me

I’m Joy and I am the Owner, Creative and Maker of Fern3.

Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York but I now reside and make home in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with my equally as creative husband, Josh and our two pets – a cat named Morty and a dog named Cornetto. Together we live in an old but very loved house in a historical part of the city. My heart’s desire is to be a mom someday to living children but I am forever grateful to be a mother with the memory of an angel-baby named, Matthias.

I wear many hats! When I am not gardening, star-gazing or cooking something new in the kitchen, I can be found in my home studio knitting, crocheting, sewing, writing my novel and being an all-around creative.

My passion for creating and making started with my excitement for Web Development in high school and has since blossomed. I am an art school graduate with a degree in Graphic & Web Design and I have a love for color and design. I’m a bit of a geek about Print Production.

I am a Believer and I try my hardest to live by the mantra “Do what you can with what you have”every day.

About Fern3

Fern3 is a blog ran by a crafter but is not a crafting blog. My life is naturally filled with all kinds of creativity so, it is going to be intertwined with vibrant colors and documented projects but I won’t be posting tutorials at this time. That may change someday but I like to share what’s going on in my life whilst I display my art. I may not post tutorials but if you are ever interested in what I am making, feel free to comment or email me asking for instructions or recipes! I would love to consider us friends 😊.
