That’s what this blog is all about – good ol’ fashioned fun. In fact, the name Squirrel Picnic came to me as I watched our neighborhood squirrels scampering and squeaking and chasing each other in a never-ending game of tag. Every day is a picnic for them! They remind me not to take life too seriously and to make time in my own busy schedule for fun and playful things, like crafts. Fun for me is knitting a sweater, designing my own crocheted toys, and sewing for family and friends. I also have a wonderful time coming up with new adventures for Hodge and Podge and their friends the fatimals.
Although Hodge and Podge may claim to help out (don’t let them fool you – they just like to watch and eat sweets), Squirrel Picnic is the work of one crazy lady… me. I’m Jennifer Olivarez and I dream up and put together all the designs, patterns, tutorials, comics, and seriously amateur filmmaking around here.
I’m so excited to be able to share my ideas and inspirations with you and to hear what projects you’re working on. So make yourself at home. Have a seat on the bench and grab a handful of mixed nuts. We’re bound to have a good time.
Read on for all the not-so-fun-but-necessary terms and conditions if you’re interested.
