Born into an artistic, entrepreneurial family, it is no surprise that Tiffany has found success expressing her talents in many different arenas. As the daughter of Aleene Jackson, America’s beloved “Mother of Crafting” and inventor of Aleene’s Tacky Glue, Tiffany’s first love is expressing herself creatively. As a child, Tiffany expressed her crafty talents utilizing all of the supplies available at her mother’s store. Whether it was simply gluing popsicle sticks together, bejeweling cigar boxes or designing elaborate chenille stem treasures, crafting has been an everyday part of her life.
Her first memories of the television world were accompanying her mother who made appearances on the popular 1960’s shows such as Art Linkletter, Tennessee Ernie Ford, Gypsy Rose Lee and the Dinah Shore Show. Her first on-air experience was at the age of 13 when she appeared on her mother’s Los Angeles PBS show demonstrating rugmaking. When Aleene started her own Creative Living show in 1986, Tiffany stepped into her new world of television hosting. She wondered however if hosting was the right decision when she showed up for her first day of taping to find out that the first segment was a demonstration on “scherenschnitte” which when mispronounced, with a nervous tongue, could quickly turn into a grand embarrassment. But Tiffany persevered and honed her hosting skills.
In 1993, Tiffany stepped in as producer and host of Aleene’s Creative Living and under her leadership, the show flourished and quickly rose to the top as TNN’s top-rated daytime show reflected in ratings counts of between 300,000 and 500,000 daily viewers. As producer, Tiffany oversaw the production and hosted over 2,000 1-hour episodes. Concurrently, Tiffany served as the editor for the show’s companion magazine. With her creative guidance, the publication grew from an 8-page newsletter format to a 72-page full-color monthly magazine with newsstand and subscription circulation in excess of 300,000.
In April 1998, Tiffany opened her first retail store, Tiffany’s Angels located in the charming Danish town of Solvang, California. Inspired by the angels she started painting in 1994, Tiffany’s inner-calling to love and support other individuals who are discovering their inner-self could be found at Tiffany’s Angels. Through her website, fans connected with Tiffany’s vision by reading her monthly newsletter, inspiring stories and shopped for unique gift items.
These ventures nourished Tiffany’s passion and unique ability to touch people and through her television appearances as host of Aleene’s Creative Living, viewers found a sense of self-esteem through their creative expression. Tiffany spearheaded the “Changing Lives Through Creativity” campaign after reading hundreds of fan letters. She recognized the number of viewer’s lives that were being changed through watching the show who opened their hearts and poured out their love through those letters. As host of Aleene’s Creative Living for 8 years, Tiffany found that many women seeking to express themselves through crafting were also seeking to grow spiritually. When Tiffany sent out a challenge to her viewing audience in exchange for one of her angel posters, hundreds of response letters poured in from viewers who felt alive and inspired, many for the first times in their lives. Another audience challenge was to raise $25,000 for children’s charities. In exchange for a $25 donation to their favorite children’s charity, Creative Living viewers and readers were sent an original hand-stamped block angel print created by Tiffany exclusively for this fundraising activity.
Bringing new dimension to her television experience, Tiffany wrote and hosted her first prime-time special, The Magic of Christmas which aired on TNN in late November 1998 and re-aired in early December 1998. This one-hour program featured exquisite holiday decorations, interviews with Crystal Gayle and Suzy Bogguss and cooking and last-minute crafting ideas for the holidays. Also included were over 25 interview clips with top country stars including Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Steve Wariner, Brooks & Dunn and Vince Gill who expressed what the Magic of Christmas represented for them. At that time, Tiffany also taped a pilot for a new lifestyles show which featured home decorating and repairs, cooking, gardening and self-improvement segments.
In January 2001, Tiffany created InspiredatHome.com featuring a unique collection of inspired ideas for home and heart. Teaming with her sisters, Heidi Borchers and Candace Liccione, InspiredatHome.com focused on today’s crafter who is beginning to awaken to the understanding that welcoming and expressing creativity into their lives brings about a sense of balance and well-being.
In September 2003, Tiffany joined Delta Technical Coatings as Director of Consumer Inspiration focusing her creative energies on inspiring and educating consumers to the fun of crafting and creative expression through her on-line Homespirations magazine. In 2004, Tiffany launched an on-line resource for kids painting projects and network for decorative painters to make a difference in their communities by teaching kids to paint.
Throughout 2004, Tiffany made regular appearances on QVC shopping channel demonstrating Texture Magic Dimensional Paint, Spin Color Tool and FabriCraft. Tiffany’s hard-bound book, Terrific Texture Techniques, was released worldwide by Sterling/Chapelle in summer 2005, followed by Handmade Paper Jewelry, co-authored with her sisters. Classy Canvas published by Design Originals focusing on canvas wall art was released in 2006.
In October 2005, Tiffany joined with her cousin David Ryan to produce and co-host 922YOU, a community television show serving the Coachella Valley. Produced at CBS 2, this television show highlighted community events and featured interviews with valley business owners, community movers and shakers and fun facts and information.
In 2008, Tiffany moved to the Chesapeake Bay, Maryland. Along with her sisters Candace Liccione and Heidi Borchers, these three “Creativity Sisters” re-launched InspiredatHome.com, an on-line creative community and live talk-show radio program featuring creative tips, project ideas, industry trends, product reviews and creative lifestyle interviews about home, garden, crafts and wellness, plus a lively team of regular show contributors who explored everything from the history of crafting to go-green eco-crafting ideas, and how living, eating and creating in balance nurtures the inner artist. This site also features the popular Aleene Jackson on-line Craft Museum.
In October 2009, Tiffany launched Inspired at Home LIVE a unique, fun new way for the creative community within Facebook to connect, share and chat LIVE through interactive TV from anywhere in the world! Pajama Party LIVE was broadcast LIVE weekly on this channel.
In January 2010, in response to listener feedback and editorial staff recognition, Tiffany was named as a Feature Host on BlogTalkRadio.
In January 2010, Tiffany was named as a recipient of the 2010 Plaid New Horizons Award in recognition of craft industry achievements and professional goals.

Airing LIVE on Facebook and the web every Monday at 12 noon EST/ 9 am PST, this lively format features guest designers who share live craft demonstrations.

Hi there, I spoke to Tiffany and she said unfortunately the tiles have been discontinued. She has yet to find the same kind of tiles, so you may need to look into alternatives. Thanks! - Julia from FaveCrafts
