about & contact
Hi there! First off, thanks for stopping by the place where I get to share all of my ideas and inspiration. This blog has been in the works for quite awhile, and I’m so excited to finally get the ball rolling.
A little about me:
God has blessed me beyond belief, and to Him I give all the glory.
I’m an Oregonian, born and raised.
In July of 2010 I married my best friend, and we are slowly making our house a home.
For now, it’s just the two of us (and our dog, Goose).
I graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Interior Design from Oregon State University, but I truly have a passion for design in all forms. Living in the northwest, where 90% of the days are dark and dreary, has taught me to crave color and incorporate it into nearly all of my work, from paper goods to textiles.
I am by no means a graphic designer, and all of my work is self-taught. That being said, I really enjoy creating pretty paper products that are useful for everyday life.
…and a few of my favorite things:
| linen | hydrangeas | mercury glass | mason jars | bakers twine | burlap | letterpress | barn-wood |
| hand-written notes | monograms | driftwood | baking | homemade gifts | chalkboards |
