Hey there, folks! Ever wonder who’s behind all the masks + tails of Opposite of Far?
We are the Near’s- married 3 years with 2 pups and a kitty, living in Indiana & building this family business of ours! I am Jessica- the founder, creator, designer, sewer, blogger, instagrammer, ect. And he’s Mike- my voice of reason, partner in crime, full-time supporter and part-time helper (…hoping to become full-time one of these days!)
I am a former nanny & preschool teacher who understands the importance of play! I strive to foster imaginations whenever and wherever I can. Opposite of Far was designed to encourage play+expand imaginations and I think we’re doing just that with our handmade masks + tails (and sometimes dolls & stuffed animals)!
The handmade life can be hard- there are long, long hours & lots of sacrifices- but I wouldn’t trade it for anything. The good very much outweighs the not-so-good! I love my job, I love connecting with other handmade crafters, I love traveling to new shows and most of all- I LOVE my customers, and I LOVE bringing smiles to kids and parents faces with my products! Those smiles drive me and fuel Opposite of Far to be better every day!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
