About Miss Jess

  Jess Vallier is a Child and Youth Worker graduate and has been an Educational Assistant at various Ottawa area primary schools for the past 8 years. The idea to start Craft-a-Palooza began when she worked as a nanny in England and saw how popular kids themed birthday parties were. Since crafting is her passion and she has many years of experience working with children, the two ideas just went together! This is now her seventh year of organizing and facilitating amazing craft parties for kids.   

Miss Jess is a mom of two small children, and really enjoys sharing her love for being creative with them as they grow. She started crafting at a very young age and is an avid digital scrapbooker, paper crafter and lover of all things crafty!   Miss Jess believes in providing children with the opportunity to let their creativity flow and flourish in an encouraging and limitless environment.

The kids had a blast using their imaginations and artistic abilities to create their 'works of art'! I would highly recommend Craft-a-Palooza to my friends and family as Miss Jess was very well organized, creative and enthusiastic!" - Sara M.

"Craft-a-Palooza was the highlight of my daughter's sleepover party! Miss Jess kept my daughter, her friends (and even my son) captivated for a full 2 hours by creating fun take-home crafts and even making balloon animals. Miss Jess kept everything well-paced and saved a bundle of time and energy that I would have spent planning, shopping, setting-up and cleaning. Craft-a-Palooza was well worth it!!" - Leslie F
