About Sartor Designs

I'm Jen, and I'm a mischief maker, a feral homemaker, and the master of reinvention.

I told my husband the other night that I'm afraid I'm the worst kind of dilettante, I dabble in things for a minute and then I'm off to the next idea.  He said, "Are you kidding me? You're a f@#king phoenix!" I decided to take that as a compliment, and not think about the whole burning my world to the ground aspect of phoenix-hood.  Ahem.

I've been a nanny, I've been a caterer.  I've worked retail and restaurant jobs.  I've built a playground and put on parades, I've painted glassware and played in a band.  I've put on a music festival, and I've created preschool classes.  I have a theatre problem.  I'm a proud member of many fandoms.  I'm a serial dieter and a cheese enthusiast and the bookkeeper of a very busy and successful law firm.  I've owned several very good dogs.  

Of late, my passion has been costume design, primarily for the theatre.  So in 2021, that means I've been without that creative outlet for a year, and in the interest of preserving my mental health I had to come up with something else on which to focus and satisfy my need to create and be creative.  That dovetailed nicely with my growing enthusiasm for greener living, and Greener by Sartor Designs  went from being a thing I *could* do to a thing I *am* doing.

I live in one of the coolest neighborhoods in Wilmington, North Carolina with my dynamic and ever-supportive husband and our tween- and teen-aged sons, who have never been to a brick-and-mortar school and are honestly quite fascinating.
