It’s time for another post in our 2017 Canvas Corp Crew Interviews. We are extremely privileged to be able to work with a group of over a 100 of amazing designers from around the world. They have all come together to create, share ideas, support each other, let us know what we can do better and remind us of what we are doing well. Our Crew members contribute projects to our blog, design with our products on their blogs, create models for our trade shows, packaging and other fun little projects. We love to hear what they have to say, to be inspired by their work and to learn new things everyday.

Jennifer Hottinger-Sloan is a wonderful friend and very experienced and imaginative with her crafts. I have known her now for over 20 years and her ideas continue to grow and change with the times. She was a huge inspiration and focal point for organizing my wedding back on Aug. 3, 2013. She helped me with multiple things, including: invitations, place settings and table design for reception, budget for wedding, presents for guests etc. She is an amazing person, even made me a special shadow box with memories of my dear brother, Tom who died suddenly on Dec.20,2016. I look at that shadow box every single day as a way of remembering my brother, it sits on a shelf in my reading room. Congrats Jennifer for your passion for creating beautiful things and sharing it with the world!
