Greetings…I am Jessica Vanderberg, pleased to meet you. My maiden name is Guerrette – meaning “little war”. The name will die with me as I’m the only child of a man who has no nephews. I make lots of things – baby quilts, felted cozies, letterpress stationery. I live in Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn just steps from Prospect Park. Here you’ll find examples of my letterpress projects, event productions and tidbits about our family and our little corner of Brooklyn.
Likes: deli/gas station coffee – anything to do with the Romanov family – glossolalia – Connecticut style lobster rolls – extinguishing matches in water – ellipses… – the pacific northwest – Sicilian superstitions – new toothpaste containers – hyperbole – binge TV watching – carousels – hotel bars – sacred harp singing – pretending not to notice celebrities on the street – early music (of the Renaissance variety) – makeovers – IMDB black holes – hand clapping in songs & three part harmony.
Dislikes: revolving doors – onstage all-star jams (however, this does not include “super-groups” like The Traveling Wilburys or Monsters of Folk) – getting out of the shower – the beach – waiting in line – line cutters – altoids – teething babies – glamping or camping or having to sleep outside my own bed for any reason whatsoever – spicy food – the Oxford comma.
Birthday: 9/7/79. born: 7 lbs. 9 oz. at 9:34 PM (3+4=7). I’m all 9’s and 7’s. And I’m a Virgo.
Favorite color: Pink. Like a blush cherry blossom pink.
Favorite drink: lemonade and Old Fashions, though not together.
Guilty Pleasure: Watching “Win A Date With Tad Hamilton” and/or “Selena”. Additionally, looking in apartment windows. And anything starring Michael Fassbender.
Death Row Food: 1st course: Poutine. 2nd course: Linguini with Clam Sauce. 3rd course: Duck confit with some kind of melty cheese gratin. Dessert: Dark chocolate covered pretzels or sour watermelons (I think I’ve covered all the food groups).
