A known doodler, no piece of paper is ever safe when Jen Allyson has a pen in her hand. Luckily her love of doodling, crafting, and all things artistic led her down the path to becoming a designer. Jen studied art and design at Brigham Young University where she got her Bachelor's degree in design. Her second job out of college was designing for well-known scrapbooking manufacture, My Mind's Eye, where she has contributed endless streams of creativity and design over the course of her 15-year career there. She has also been designing fabric with Riley Blake for an incredible 7 years, designing a wide variety of styles, themes, and finishes. Color, pattern, and design have always been her passion, and she loves seeing how all those elements come together in crafting, quilting, home decor, event coordination and stationery among other things. Her craft room is always a mess and way too full of goodies, but she would not have it any other way. Her favorite hobby is hosting fabulous parties, and her favorite color is pink. Jen currently resides in Utah with her two adorable sons and her new fluffy puppy.
