Jordan is a work in progress. She’s still figuring things out, and on her blog, Girl, Crafted, she shares her thoughtful, bold, and adventurous explorations of what is means to really live life to the fullest. Sometimes she hits upon a smashing success; sometimes she fails; but always, she learns and shares and remains enthusiastic about going to new places and trying new things.
She’s always got a project on the go, and her blog is just as much about sharing recipes, crafts, and reviews of cool events and places around town, as it is about sharing parts of herself. You’ll find yourself quickly tapped in to a DIY world where you’ll feel inspired to create, grow, and get out and about in Ottawa – or at least, to do it vicariously through Jordan.
She’s not shy at all about sharing her rough spots, too – her ongoing struggles with anxiety, her efforts to figure out who she wants to be and how she wants to get there. She’s totally open about her geek-girl status, even starting a second blog where proud female fans of comic books, fantasy, and sci-fi can share their stories and even get together on occasion. Her personal posts are moving and insightful, and all are illustrated with her warm, funny, fantastic sketches that bring her words to life.
Jordan’s energy and spunk are definitely worth getting to know. Come and see for yourself at Blog Out Loud 2014.
