Heidi Jo the Artist's Profile

About

Welcome to The Rainbow Shop! I am Heidi Jo the Artist, the owner of this shop. I am a freelance artist and enjoy doing anything creative. I love to use so many things when I create. I’ve determined I’m a collage artist. : ) I especially love handmade, natural, recycled, and vintage items. I graduated from Iowa State University with a Bachelor in Fine Arts and have learned about a variety of different arts and crafts through the years. Jack of all trades, not quite, but I do have a lot of fun interests and hobbies that keep me busy. I will always consider myself a photographer and life-long learner. I believe my love of photography and craftiness were instilled in me as a child. I watched as my dad took photos with his Pentex 35 mm camera, while my mom enjoyed quite the array of crafts. When I leave home even if I’m off to just the grocery store, the camera is an essential that goes with me. The only photos that I regret are th…

I love Jesus and am a bit of a green freak too when it comes to helping our planet become a better place to live. I believe in Reducing, Reusing, and Recycling! I’m proud that I’ve been a recycler for well over ten years. At times it wasn’t always convenient, but it has always felt good to reuse and recycle things instead of throwing them in the garbage. I also enjoy going to estate/garage sales and thrift shops. I love unique items and finding items from my childhood. My favorite toys from childhood are the Fisher Price Little People Toys. I have great memories of playing with them with my siblings when my mom got all the sets out around Christmas vacation.

I especially love to use vintage dishes in the kitchen while baking/cooking recipes from scratch. Serving scrumptious sweets on my cake stands is awesome too. ;) My new love is vintage Pyrex, especially the colorful bowls that are ever so popular these days. I also love unique and rusty items for organization-amongst my favorites are: jars, tins, wire baskets, muffin tins, picnic baskets, and luggage. Beautiful vases, pitchers, and planters: to display flowers in from our garden, for our ever-growing collection of houseplants, and art/craft supplies are always fun to find too.

I’m a wife, and mother of three children who inspire me. I feel very lucky to be doing what I love while being able to stay home with our children. We enjoy watching them learn and take great pride in being a (homeschooling) unschooling family.

Thanks for visiting, and have an awesome morning/day/night! : )
