Local Makers: Jessica Collins of Sunny in Georgia

Meet Jessica from Sunny in Georgia! Holy Sunshine - she's lovely! Swing by and hang out this Saturday at Reformation! (RSVP on Facebook here.)

What do you make?

Apparel + accessories.

What does your average day look like?

Coffee, keeping up with my 3 crazy kids, more coffee, maybe an idea or two, an IPA, then bed.

What inspires you to keep making work? 

My kids inspire me to keep on going... I want them to be proud of me. When I'm in a rut, I need to leave where I am and stop thinking about it so much. Ideas are born when you least expect them (like driving over railroad tracks).

What is the hardest lesson you learned through your business/creative process?

You need to trust yourself. Become friends with your mistakes and fears. Always ask questions, always listen.

What's the best part about doing what you do?

I know a little part of my life is in everything that is produced. When people smile when seeing anything of ours, I am happy.

What sorts of new things are on the horizon?

While I do have new graphics that are coming...I am currently reprinting some of our original graphics in new colors!
