I am a designer by nature, always have been.

I am the mother of an amazing almost 3 year old little girl who fills my life with happiness (and frustration).

I am a wife to my soul mate, my partner on this journey we call our lives.  After 7 years of marriage, I am still fascinated everyday by my amazing husband.

I am an architect by profession – 40 hrs a week, 52 weeks a year.  But it’s not exactly what I dreamed about since I was 10.

I am a sewist.  It is my passion and my outlet for creative energy.  I never have enough time to sew everything I dream up.

I am a crafter & knitter.  For as long as I can remember I have been crafting.  Growing up, my mom would always say, “Oh, we could make that!”  Now I’m the one saying it.

I am a do-it-yourself-er.  I would much rather figure out how to do something myself than ask someone else to do it for me.  I think that’s the country girl in me.

I am a gardner.  There is nothing more rewarding that eating food that you grew from a tiny seed.

I am a cook & baker.  I love to eat.  And I prefer to make, from scratch, what I am eating.  Of course, time doesn’t always allow it.  But I try.

I am a maker, a creator, an inventor.  I just like to create things.  It is in my blood, the essence of my being.

I am a reader.  I pretty much always have a book in my bag that I am reading – a real book.  Either from our large collection or the library.

I am a traveler.  I love to go to different places and see new things.  I get anxious when I stay in one place for too long.  From college until my daughter was born, I hopped states every 2 years or less.

I am an optimist.  I choose to see the positive in everything and everyone, whenever I can.  The world is a much better place through rose-tinted glasses.

I am a dreamer.  I am amazed at how many things I never imagined were possible have already come true, so why would I stop dreaming now?

I am a believer.  My parents raised me to believe in beauty, in possibility and in myself.  I believe that life is full of opportunities, we just have to be willing to take a risk in order to grab them.
