Mary Jo Hoffman Mary Jo Hoffman posts one image, daily, of gathered natural objects found near her.

Then design*sponge came knocking. And Martha Stewart did a feature. And Minneapolis Saint Paul Magazine. Then Target. Then West Elm. And now her work is seen in textiles, wall hangings, card collections, and other product licensing.
