It all started with the Booty Belt! Jenna Herbut started selling these belts right after her graduation from the University of Alberta, in over 102 boutiques across Canada, USA and Japan. The Thrill of growing her business allowed Jenna to experience alot of things such as becoming a pro at PR and getting her Booty Beltz into numerous magazines. Eventually Jenna transitioned from selling her belts wholesale to directly to customers at craft shows. Eager to change the stereotype of boring craft shows, Jenna made it her mission to make her own fun DIY show.
The inspiration for Make It! The Handmade Revolution is to create a show where one would want to sell at. Why not make a craft show more like a party? Adding booze, DJs and live music, creating a fresh and appealing view of craft shows. Make It! is in it's 5th year and has been growing exponentially every year!
Jenna also launched Make It University for those who want to bump up their business skills and be successful in doing what they love.
