Meet The Maker
Hey y'all! My name is Jennifer Launius (lawn-yus). It's an odd name to pronounce, its Greek is all I know. Anyways I am the face behind The Western Farmgirl. I am the maker, designer, scroll saw cutter and everything else that goes into making these items and shipping them out the door to you.
I am a stay-at-home mom of two young boys and I've been married to my husband since 2014. We currently reside in middle Tennessee where we've been for three years now. I am originally from Ohio but have lived in several states including Oklahoma which is where I graduated from college in 2009, Oklahoma State University with a Bachelor of Science in Sports Management and a double major in Marketing.
Would you believe that I orginally started this business as interior design? That's right, this was once originally name Farmgirl Interiors and then it became Farmgirl Interiors and Crafts and now here we are as The Western Farmgirl.
Prior to starting this adventure, I had never done any woodworking other than helping my dad with projects around the house when I was growing up. I purchased my first nail gun and miter saw in the fall of 2019 and I've been busy ever since.
This past winter I decided to rebrand my business to what was important to me and to make what I loved not just because it was popular or the in thing, and let me tell you, it was the best decision ever!
The best advice I can give to anyone is if something is on your heart, pray about it and then go for it. God will lead you where you need to go.
