I am a stay-at-home mom to the cutest Preschooler Riley, and wife to wonderful husband Shawn and we live in the greater Seattle area. I can’t believe my little man is starting preschool this fall!
I love all things creative – I have a background in both design and marketing, and am working on my web design and graphic design skills, as well as learning all things Adobe. I love to learn and try new things with design and it’s common to see a variety of styles from me, but hopefully with the same underlying feeling, and I strive for high quality and multi-use for items.
I am also a serious hobby photographer; I’ve taken a few classes in film photography, but now I am completely digital so it’s been a fun switch and I love learning about the differences and what I can do with my SLR.
And my new obsession: FABRIC! I am absolutely in love with so many fabric lines, and my new Brother SE400 Sewing & Embroidery machine! I have a variety of “first” projects in the works and am having fun figuring out all the bugs and making my first things – first quilts, first aprons, first pincushions – first every things! It’s a little overwhelming and intimidating trying to teach myself, but I found a quilting club and I think I can learn a lot from that, in addition to trial and error on my own, books, and those wonderful tutorials available everywhere!
