Fast Company talks to Jessica Haas about State-by-State Seasonal Food-Guide Prints

JessicaHaas_FastCompany

I got a wonderful opportunity to be quoted in an Fast Company article, 13 Ways to Make Side Money Off One Idea by Arianna O’Dell. The article talks about the many ways people are on the path to making their side jobs grow into big business or just people making a side income utilizing the many easy, digital tools available in the market today. My speciality is the 13th for my beloved Etsy, see our quote below.

13. ETSY

For getting crafty.

Once you have a design, turning it into handmade items can help you reach yet another market on Etsy. As you’re probably familiar, the e-commerce site lets you easily set up a store and market to its hundreds of thousands of users who typically like products with a crafty, homemade edge. “I sell state-by-state seasonal food-guide prints, and so far my experience with Etsy has been great,” says graphic designer Jessica Haas. “My products have done well at Etsy since the platform predominantly caters to a younger female audience who support handcrafted items.”

Find us on Etsy to for Seasonal Local Food Guides spanning 48 U.S. states! See Ohio’s food guide below.

Free March 2017 Herb Wallpapers

Jessica Haas Designs Free March Calendar and Herb Wallpapers

Traditionally March is know to be the month of green due to the celebration of St. Patrick’s Day 🍀  and also for many, we are already celebrating warmer weather. With seedlings already sprouting🌱, we know Spring is only round the corner.

It’s the Season of Herbs
Spring may have an official start date, but late freezes are still bound to happen so start planting indoors this month to yield a great harvest come summer. The best plants to thrive this season are herbs. Herbs are easy to plant and are pretty portable throughout most stages of growing (so if they’re outdoors and surprise cold weather comes along, simply bring the pots indoors).

The best herbs to start growing at this time are basil, oregano, thyme, lemon balm, rosemary, and sage.

What else is happening in the month of March? (Follow us on Facebook for reminders)

• Daylight Savings 🕒  (when clocks spring forward) – Sunday, March 12th
• St. Patrick’s Day 🍀  – Friday, March 17th
• Spring Equinox🌱 (first day of Spring) – Monday, March 20th

Top 6 Valentine’s Chocolate & Fruit Treats

valentines_chocolate_fruit

Chocolate and Valentine’s Day are a match made in heaven. Making homemade treats of chocolate dipped raspberries, cherries, and strawberries keep your loves’ healthy this February 14th.

chocolate-covered-raspberries-5.jpg

Move over, chocolate-covered cherries. There’s a new chocolate-covered candy king this year, chocolate-covered raspberries. These aren’t just raspberries dipped in chocolate, these are dipped in melted fondant, like how chocolate-covered cherries are made. This like everything that you want to last forever, takes some (waiting) time. They will last about 5 days, but will have the best texture within the first three days of making them. See SugarHero.com for the recipe.

Presentation is always a labor of love. This fun, yet glamour chocolate dish is cute way to say “i love you” and it’s also a great kid-friendly project. Dip clean, lightly greased balloons in melted chocolate, set them on parchment paper for about an hour, and repeat for a second dip to strengthen the bowl. Total time about 2 hours and 10 mins. See the Gunny Sack recipe here.

Chocolate-Covered-Cherries21.jpg

These Chocolate Covered Cherries couldn’t be easier. They take minutes to make and use only a few ingredients. The dipping options are endless, seen here are cherries covered in white Almond Bark or have a double coating of white and milk chocolate. You can also use sprinkles and crushed graham crackers. Eat as is or top any dessert you chose from ice cream to Chocolate Mousse. See Hoosier Homemade’s recipes here.

You can always do the traditional Valentine’s strawberry too.

Happy Groundhog Day

Animated GIF by Jessica Haas Designs and FreePik

This early morning celebration has become a tradition in the United States celebrated every February 2nd (and thanks to the popularity of the Bill Murray Groundhog Day film).

According to folklore:

☁️️ =  NO Shadow =🌱🌷
If it is cloudy when a groundhog emerges from its burrow on this day, then the spring season will arrive early, some time before the vernal equinox.

☀️️ =  Shadow = ⛄❄️
If it is sunny, the groundhog will supposedly see its shadow and retreat back into its den, and winter weather will persist for six more weeks.
