About Me

I am a graduate of The University of North Texas, where I received a BFA in Interior Design. Unfortunately, the small town I reside in does not offer anything related to my degree, so I work happily at a Credit Union!

My dream is to own a brick and mortar creative business one day...maybe opening a stationery, floral, or craft shop!

I currently get small side gigs using my hand lettering skills to make signs for weddings, logos, and everything in between! The perk of small town living is that creatives are far and in between so I'm usually the "go-to" creative!...Which I love!

I'm a lover of doodling, music, traveling, kind hearts, beautiful paper, letters, hand lettering, illustration, watercolor, the good kind of mail, washi tape, design blogs, design, calligraphy, stamps, fine point markers to doodle with, surprises, crossword puzzles, traveling, flowers and plants, letterpress, thoughtfulness, candy, modern eclectic style, and of course crafting.

My favorite colors? Metallic gold, coral, mint, mustard yellow.

I am also recently married to a really cool guy where we live simply and happily with our pup, Theodore.

I put a lot of care into the packages I send and would really appreciate if the same was done for me. Thank you! :)

Favorite Television

Mad Men, Modern Family, Breaking Bad, House of Cards, Restaurant Impossible, Lost, Fringe, SNL, The Walking Dead, The Price is Right...(Bob Barker Days)

Favorite Music

Arcade Fire, Steely Dan, Fleet Foxes, Selena, Ryan Adams, Passion Pit, Beach House, The XX, Daughter, Haim, Future Islands, Earth, Wind, and Fire, Michael Jackson...My top genres are indie rock and soul.

Comment: Thanks so much fro the parcel. Although it was a little late, its timing as perfect as I had had a horrendous day and was feeling really rough when I got home. Your parcel made me smile and I particularly loved the notebook. Thanks again

Comment: I appreciated everything about this Happy Mail Kit - from the decorated envelope it was mailed in, to the personal note, to the stamps in a small separate envelope attached to the outside, to the magazine page packet tied with string that the items were presented in. (You have beautiful handwriting as well). Thank you for the time you took in gathering these items and mailing them to me. It was so much fun to receive. All the Best!!
