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.
