Easter Bunny Ribbon Sculpture Instructions:

What’s your store name and how long have you been an Etsymom?

My store name is GennyAndJane and I have been an Etsymom since January 5th of this year!

Tell us something about you, your family, your craft or your store?

My name is Jessica and I am a Stay-At-Home Mom of two beautiful children: a son and daughter, ages 2 ½ and 4 ½. I’ve always been drawn to all different styles of crafting, thanks mostly to my two Grandmothers, Genevieve (Genny) and Shirley (middle name Jane). My Grandmother Genevieve sewed clothes for me from the time I was young until I was in high school. Together, we designed my red sequin prom dress, which was inspired from a photo in a magazine. My Grandmother Shirley was an amateur artist. She enjoyed sketching, painting, and in her later years card making and calligraphy. Crafting is a gene that I’m so glad I have. I find that it is a great stress relief and I’m very passionate about my work. I enjoy spending time creating new items for my daughter to wear. She is the inspiration for everything I make.

Making bows just sort of happened by accident! I got started in 2007 after attending a craft show. I purchased 2 ribbon sculptures from another bow maker. She is now a friend and one of my customers! I was so fascinated with the mouse ear clip and Christmas tree clip I bought that I came home that night and started researching how to make them myself. I’ve been making bows and writing instructions for my own designs ever since. I sell boutique style hair bows, ribbon sculptures and DIY instructions in my Etsy shop, GennyAndJane.

I enjoy making bows for the holidays and am currently working on items for St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, and July 4th. My instruction sets are available in my shop as well as on, which I am very excited about. I’ve also collaborated with another EtsyMom, Julie of ZozoBugBaby ( and I’ve been working on some new styles to match her adorable clothes. You’ll see my beautiful daughter modeling the birdie dress and sunflower hair clips below. (hint hint: there is still time to get this really cute set before St. Patrick's Day! Shamrock Ribbon Sculpture and Shamrock Printed Pinwheel bow set:

Etsy is such a wonderful community and I’m so glad to have found the EtsyMom team. Please visit my shop. I’m always adding new creations, so if you don’t see what you are looking for, please ask!

What's your favorite Easter activity?
I enjoy dying eggs with the kids and letting them go on an egg hunt in the yard.
