When I was a kid, I wanted to be an archaeologist. When I was a teenager, I wanted to be in theatre. When I was a young adult, I wanted to be a judge or run a museum. I’m now in my mid-30s and have no idea what I want to be when I grow up.
I make traditional crafts with a quirky, modern edge and a little geek culture thrown in. I have a strength in taking a pile of supplies and creating something one-of-a-kind and most of what I do is kid-friendly. I’ve been described as having “soft edges.”
I’m married to Scott and mom to the Storybook Four–Madeline (2007), Pippilotta (Pippi)(2009), Alice(2010), and Matilda(2013). They are my world.
I am a mom, reader, handmade-lover, DIYer, geek, foodie, and so much more. I write about my projects (big and small), my attempts at style, favorite recipes, and family life. I enjoy quick and easy crafts and projects that pack a lot of punch. I love to read, game, and play in the garden. My family currently calls the Chicago suburbs home.
