Jamie Kutchman

Founder of Marigold & Grey

Jamie bid farewell to the corporate world to start M&G. This makes sense since gift giving has always been her love language. She lives with her golf-smitten husband, Jeff, in the DC area. After meeting in 2010 and marrying in 2012, thanks to eHarmony, Jamie affectionately refers to Jeff as the best thing she’s ever found online. Jamie is a stepmom of three and more recently, a mom to two rescue pups, Lewis & Clarkie. While she enjoys DC life, she's a true Virginia girl at heart. Aside from gift design, it's good bourbon and bbq, Redskins football, prop styling, encouraging other entrepreneurs, and long weekend getaways that make her world go round.

Workshop Photographer

Rachel first discovered her love for photography through her father's vintage film cameras and was immediately enamored. Shortly after graduating high school she decided to pursue the art more seriously. With a leap of faith, and an entrepreneurial spirit, she founded Blue Barn in 2009.
