Who are you?

Just me. Just a girl still. Just a person trying to find her way each day, hoping, dreaming, and escaping a little through art.

What do you believe with all of your heart?

That being able to make something from bits of paper, stamps, and pads of ink completes me.

When did you know that this was your path?

For the longest time I wanted my future to be in words and illustration. The dream got lost along the way and I took on a career that paid the bills. Creative time balanced out the chaos the job brought to my life. I never lost sight of the dream though that I could be an artist or author. I think that is why I turned to blogging because it filled the need to share and write about something I loved. Happily, that innocent exercise led me to a career as a full time designer, artist, and teacher. I am thankful every day for that.

Where is your favorite place on earth?

My little yellow bungalow.

Why do you love your life?

Because I am blessed. I have a good life. I have a loving husband and three beautiful children. We are healthy. We aren’t rich, but we have enough. We have a comfortable and easy life.

How do you do everything you do?

Lists. To-do list with checklists keep me sane. I thrive on routine and organization.
