Time To Register For Art School {Follow Me}

(source) All throughout high school all I dreamed about was art school. I was constantly sketching and designing clothing. If I wasn’t making art I was watching design shows and scouring through fashion magazines. I grew up in a town of 3,000 and sometimes when you dream big in a small town it is hard to find your supporters. Sometimes you don’t realize at 17 that the lack of support has less to do with you…. and more to do …

I had to…I couldn’t take it any longer {you should join me}

I am the kind of girl that (unfortunately) doesn’t think about birthday presents until the day before sometimes. I refuse to put up decorations of any kind unless it is for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I wrap my Christmas presents the night before Christmas. I like to celebrate one holiday at a time. I don’t even really like to begin Christmas shopping until after Thanksgiving. I will not put the Christmas tree up earlier than the day after Thanksgiving (I will …

Teaching {pure joy}

When I was little I used to go all around the neighborhood and round up other children to play school with me. It is no surprise to me how much I have loved teaching my own children. What has been so much fun and unexpected is all the incredible opportunities I have had over the past 1 1/2 years to teach other women. I love talking and connecting with women from all over and creating together. While I was in …
