Once upon a time, I was an art historian who taught classes to college students about things like the history of photography and modern and contemporary art. I read lots of books, graded papers, prepared lectures, and I loved it. These days, I spend my time as a stay-at-home mom to three amazing, beautiful, needy little people (and one big person!) who brighten my life in ways I never imagined.
Our family just moved back to the good ‘ole US of A after living in Seoul, South Korea for the past 3 years. We just purchased a new home, and I can’t wait to share all my crafting/DIY projects that I’ll be working on. (You can read more about what my babies and I did in Korea in my Seoul Life section.)
As someone who has always enjoyed making things, whether with yarn or fabric or paper or food, I’ve learned to become extremely productive when my kids are sleeping. Most days, I wish I had more hours in the day to work on all the things… But since I have been unable (so far) to manipulate time and space (*sigh*), I just try to remind myself that I’m busy crafting humans.
One of the most enjoyable aspects of my crafting is designing, and my kids are my biggest inspiration. Much of what I make are things that my kids
demand ask for–Transformers, Star Wars, My Little Pony, super heroes, anything firefighter-related…
Hope you enjoy the blog and hope that the patterns, recipes and free printables that I’m able to share help fill your life with pretty/delicious/fun things!
