Hello! I'm Jennifer Agan, a professional and degreed interior designer in the Quad-Cities area. I am known as Jen of All Trades and have a small business with the same name. While Interior Design is certainly my forte and focus, I also provide concierge and creative services such as small event planning and personal shopping. I am able to offer the best in home decor at incredibly competitive prices. I also am an instructor in the Interior Design program at Scott Community College. A bargain hunter and outside-the-box thinker, I know when, where and on what to splurge and of course, when to save. It's funny, after all these years, when someone asks me, "So what do you do for a living?", I nearly have to pinch myself when I hear the words come out of my mouth..."I'm an interior designer." Loving what you do is such a gift.
So, pinch me...well, not too hard as I bruise really easily these days (add that to the list of negatives about being closer to 40 than 30).
Of course, there are other things I love...my incredible husband and our four-legged children, anything French (yep, I'm that girl), travel in general, the idea of taking photography classes and actually understanding my darn camera, the smell of old books, which my newest love, my Kindle, lacks but makes up for in oh, so many ways, framed black and white silhouettes, thrift store finds (the poor woman's antique store, ya know), and of course anything to do with food and cooking.
I'd be honored to have you join me as we discover new ideas and find inspiration along the way, so make sure to become a "follower" of the blog! Nothing too high brow here, just brilliant and inspired ideas for those of us who dream big while still searching for that ever elusive money tree. Where IS that darn thing, anyway!
