Mars n Mom Jindrich's Profile

About

Hi there. This shop is run by Mars supported by their Mom, Jennifer, but mainly Mars.

About The Kid:
I'm Mars, a 17 year old high school senior.

I really enjoy the process of reclaiming fabrics so that you can make them into whatever you'd like. Finding fabric, surging edges, felting wool, and figuring how to get stains out is very satisfying to me. It is especially wonderful knowing that my work is keeping items out of the landfill and keeping others from buying new fabrics, which is very taxing on the environment.

I also find long perambulations enjoyable. The taking of pictures, and collecting of seeds along the way is rejuvenating so I can go back to studying when I'm done. This happens to be a very sustainable way to harvest wildflower seeds, and so you can feel good knowing that…

This happens to be a very sustainable way to harvest wildflower seeds, and so you can feel good knowing that plants can still reseed themselves, and that wild animals have food for the winter while you still get to add variety to your wildflowers.

Beyond my Etsy life I like to spend time with my dog, Morocco, and to read. I'm very interested in human rights and animal rights, but sometimes I need a break from that and just read about herbology and botany.

I'm thoroughly enjoying this opportunity to be an entrepreneur. I can't imagine life any other way, really.

About The Mom:
I'm Jennifer, the mom-person. I was once told that I'd live an electic life, and am so happy to have the opportunity to live it with my kid.

I am a teacher and a master gardener, and I think Mars sums up who I am when they say I'm a nurturer. I truly enjoy watching and participating in growth.

I think that's a great way to sum up our shop, too. We love to do what we can to nurture the best in ourselves and others.

Thanks for visiting our shop. We hope it is an inspiration, even if you don't buy a thing.

Mars and Jennifer
