Is your finger diamond-less? Is your home leased? Is your budget tiny?
That's fine. You don't have to be married or own a center hall colonial to embrace an artful life. I know. Because I used to be married and I used to own a cookie-cutter home. That is no longer my life, but I want to focus on the fact that creativity and design are accessible to all. I am a few years post divorce, and while that experience will forever be a part of me, I decided to discontinue my personal blog and focus on my lifestyle experimentation because that is where I channel my passion and energy today.
My interests are (but are not limited to) baking, cooking, interior decorating, etsy shopping, antiquing and flea-marketing, painting, crocheting, and general crafting. I don't remember life before Pinterest. Christmas has a special place in my heart, and holidays in general are great excuses to go craft nuts.
On a personal level, I am very family oriented. I have a nephew and niece I adore (you'll see pictures here) two younger sisters, two fantastic brother in laws, and a mother that is not only my best friend, but someone that I admire for her strength and perseverance. Much of my "talent" is owing to her influence. My father passed away from a particularly aggressive form of cancer, and I may speak about him from time to time. His illness was a reminder to me to find joy in life's little details and tiny moments: at the end we'll appreciate the chance we had to express ourselves and find ourselves through any and all creative outlets.
