About Jennifer

Jennifer Perkins is a self proclaimed ADD crafter. She started her creative career as a jewelry designer. Her company Naughty Secretary Club grew into a blog, book and booming brand. Besides jewelry, Jennifer has dabbled in everything from embroidery to scrapbooking. Her creative career has taken many twists and turns through the years, but always kept her covered in glitter and glue.

Jennifer is a founding member of the pioneering Austin Craft Mafia which went on to have branches across the globe. In front of the camera, Jennifer has hosted several programs for HGTV and DIY Network including Stylelicious and Craft Lab. From 2012-2014 Jennifer was the Editor in Chief of Kids Crafts 1-2-3 Magazine. She has done creative consulting work, ad campaigns and creative designs for large corporate craft companies and small local boutiques. Her work has been featured in The New York Times, Marie Claire, Seventeen, The Wall Street Journal and many more.

Jennifer lives in Austin, TX and has been married to her best friend Chris for over 10 years. She is raising her two young children (Tallulah 6 and Baxter 4) in craftivity and for every project you see her create, you can bet there are two mini versions happening in the sidelines.

Jennifer’s weaknesses include stuffed avocados, throwing over the top Halloween parties & thrift stores.
