Renay is happily married and a busy mama to 4 boys. She spends her hectic days homemaking in the midwest and loves to thrift and collect "all the things". Her passion is for that gorgeous green from decades past called Jadeite or Jadite or Jade-ite. However, you spell it, if it's Jadite, it's for Renay! Along the way, she fell in love with Johanna’s work when she stumbled across her licensed-for-retail designs in a local chain store. It was love at first sight!
On a creative quest, Renay began piecing together Johanna’s illustrations with her vintage glass finds. The results were a delight! She reached out to JPD to share her whimsical waterslide decal samples and naturally, with Johanna’s love for vintage kitchenware, it was a match! As Renay treasure-hunts, keep an eye on her Etsy shop for unique combinations that mix Johanna’s art with her unique finds. She also offers the decals separately to those that want their own DIY experience! Mix all that with her love of hand sculpting itty bitty ceramic miniatures, and upcycling various thrift finds, and the possibilities of this creative partnership are endless.
