The Jane Behind Jacaranda Designs - Getting To Know Me Better...

My good friend, Lee Currie, writes daily (and sometimes more than once a day it seems!) on her BLOG Embrace Life. She has a wonderful way with words and an ability to describe things we take for granted everyday in such a enlightening, uplifting way.

Upon reading Embrace Life, you'll realize that Lee is also an extremely talented photographer and scrapbooker. I have learned more about the art of scrapbooking since meeting Lee than I have since I purchased my album 14 years ago!

Recently, Lee has started a weekly interview column. It's an interview style based on Proust Interview found in Vanity Fair magazine. It was a lot of fun answering the questions....try getting your friends to participate. You'd be surprised what interesting tidbits you may find out about them :)

Here is the link to Lee's interview with me.  If you'd like to learn a little more about me, read on.....



  1. You are so very sweet, Jane :) So good getting to know you and I'm glad to have the opportunity to share you with everyone!

  2. It is so nice to meet you Jane :-) The interview was great...very well written and answered.

  3. Great interview and nice to know a little something about you. I have always admired your jewelry creations and your wonderful use of color in them. I, too, have read The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett, and I have his latest "The Fall of Giants" an equally "large" book. It might be my next Winter's read. Sending you all my best and keep posting your wonderful creations on Facebook.

  4. Hi Rosemary, yes I also have "The Fall of Giants" ..after reading Pillars of the Earth, I've taken a break from HUGE books for a couple of months but I'm hoping to tackle the next one in the summer. There's also the mini series Pillars of the Earth which I want to get my hands on.
    Have a great weekend!

  5. I loved this Jane! Hockey mom that you are, did I ever mention my Great Garndfather won the Stanley Cup twice for the Montreal Wanderers ~ my family is full of hockey (except for my boys who can't skate!)
    Have a great weekend with your family,

  6. Nathalie,
    I'll definitely tell my son. He'll love to hear about it. He's an absolute hockey fanatic!
    Have fun this weekend,
