The Aleene Jackson Craft Museum
GRASONVILLE, MD – Friday night – While Heidi and Candace have been having fun dreaming up new craft and herb projects, I have been diving into my own fun project – the launch of the Aleene Jackson Craft Museum.
The Creativity Sisters have been talking about this project for years now. There are thousands of photos to scan and projects and original Aleene’s books to share but we’re up to the task. It was when I discovered this 1944 Resale License in Mom’s memorabilia that I was really hooked on this project. On July 31, 1944, Mom was granted this license for her first business – a retail florist shop. It was from this little shop that Mom started on her 55+ year career. Little did she know that when she arranged those first flowers in 1944 that she would be starting a phenomenon that would sweep the globe and change the lives of so many women. Did you know that Aleene’s Tacky Glue was first named “Glue d’Aleene” but after designers started asking for that “tacky” glue, this household staple took on its new name.
What’s making this project’s journey even sweeter for me is that as I unpack photos and documents, I am giving Mom a call and asking her about what she remembers about that time in her life. So, the Aleene Jackson Craft Museum is a blog of sorts that will take us all back in time. The Museum will give the Aleene’s fans a touch of the nostalgic past and Inspired at Home will launch you into your creative future!
I look forward to your joining me in this creative adventure! Creatively yours! Tiffany
