About me

I inherited my creativity from one grandma and my style from the other.

My dad's mom paints intricate roses and tiny violets on china and quilts every day. She's game for all my DIY project ideas, from Pendleton wool Christmas stockings to homemade candles from crayon shavings. (They exploded.)

My mom's mom took me along on her antiquing trips and instilled my love for all things vintage. She taught me about good taste and the importance of our daily Dr. Pepper break. I'm still learning all her decor, fashion and cooking secrets.

Currently

  • Enjoying newlywed life.

  • Wishing for sunshine in the rainy PNW.

  • So close to convincing my husband we need a corgi.

  • Adjusting to a gluten-free diet.

Mediums

I enjoy hand lettering, calligraphy, drawing, painting, mixed-media and scrapbooking.

I love Kuretake and Staedtler pens for sketching, Tombow markers for brush lettering and Sharpie markers for all the jobs. My favorite calligraphy nibs are the Zebra G and Brause Rose.

Collections

I am a collector!

Vintage ephemera and office supplies have a special place in my heart. My new favorites are award ribbons and gift wrap. And postage stamps! I swoon over any ephemera with horses. If it’s vintage, I will love it.

I also collect turquoise jewelry, red graniteware, red Fiesta and vintage juice glasses.

I am forever on the hunt for a Libby daisy juice pitcher to complete my collection and anything from Sparks Dairy Co. of Colorado. It was my great grandfather’s business, and my grandma would love to have something from that part of her childhood. If you know of any sources, please let me know!

Comment: Thank you so much for the little surprises!! I especially loved the ribbon and origami paper. I don't have any of that particular size and I'm excited to use it! I also love your penmanship. I've been working on improving mine, but I get a tad lazy lol. Anyway, thanks so much again!! ♥

Comment: I loved the note cards! Your handwriting is so beautiful on the envelope, I am inspired to take up hand lettering and see if I can improve my penmanship, or at least make it more artistic. (And, how funny that we are neighbors!!) I loved the theme of the cards and the PNW themed washi tape.
