For April, I’ve decided to highlight a few of my favorite ladies in a Woman Crush Wednesday (#WCW) series. I’m hoping to maybe introduce you to a new face or two during the month.
My first #WCW is Sasha Johns. I first met Sasha a few months ago through a See Jane Write ‘Scandal’ watch party. The moment I saw her thousand-watt smile and fabulously funky hair I knew I wanted to meet her. After that night, we continued growing our friendship online and then I visited her at home over the holidays. While spending time with her I found out this amazing lady is a mother, wife, blogger, business woman, crafty chick, cook, and a million other things….basically, she’s Super Woman. She cooked a delicious meal for lunch during my visit, showed me where she makes her beautiful jewelry and baubles, told me all about making wine jelly, and took care of her husband and kids all while being the perfect southern hostess. I had a blast playing with her children, learning about the body and chiropractic medicine from her husband, and even snagged some homemade dog treats that her son made to start his own business (apple doesn’t fall far from the tree in this house!).
Sasha has her own web site, True Vines, where she blogs and shares her wares with others. She’s also a part of the Middle Places collective, a group of woman writing about faith, family, and life in general with grace and humility.
Sasha is currently licensed to make the jelly at home and sells it in small batches at local art fairs and festivals. Her dreams are much bigger though. She recently got certified to cook commercially and launched a Kickstarter campaign this month to help make those dreams a reality. She wants to grow the wine jelly business to help provide more for her family, spend more time with them, and share this unique and divinely delicious treat with a larger audience and hopefully get it in stores soon.
This woman is an insanely talented power house and entrepreneur. I hope you enjoyed learning about Sasha and will consider supporting her Kickstarter campaign. Just think…wine jelly for days. Mmmmm….. J
