My Story

I’m a mom of three with a background in education. I have always had a heart for helping others find joy, be it in the form of a handmade gift or creating their very own masterpiece. I am an avid learner, always trying new things. Combine that with a touch of OCD and, well, you’ve got a Jane of all trades; mostly crafting trades, but I have a few fun ones up my sleeve too - such as boutique merchandise buyer, professional shopper and curriculum creator. You will always find me creating something, my hands must stay busy and my to-create-soon list is never ending. 

I was not always this way though, I actually have never taken a formal art class...not even in high school. I found the arts when in search of purpose and joy in my late twenties. I have followed the trends  such as scrapbooking and card making as well as tried less known crafts like quilling and Zentangle inspired patterning and I have yet to find a craft I didn't at least enjoy the process of, even if I didn't enjoy the product.


Creative time is a form of therapy for me and I believe it can be for you as well.

My goal is to help you create joy as you discover your inner artist. I want to help you find the fulfillment, purpose, and ultimately joy that I have found through creative processes. I hear it all the time, "I am not creative" but....

It is not who you are that holds you back, it's who you think you are not! 


Follow me on this creative journey and try something new.

Artists are within each and every one of us. Let me help you find yours!
