I'm a California transplant that lives in the suburbs of Portland, Oregon with my husband (Eric - my first kiss), our three teenagers (Carson, Ben & Amelia - twins), and our pets Dexter and Hazel.

My love of creating began when I was old enough to hold a pair of scissors, but I'll fast forward a little bit...

A quick run down of my resume includes, a degree in interior design, stationery designer, crafter, scrapbook manufacturer, merchandiser and independent graphic designer. Every one of these moments and my lifelong pursuit of what is true, lovely and good, has prepared me for this chapter of my life.

I struggle to find words when I describe what happens when I sit at my computer to create. It is a sacred time between me and God. Everything that flows out of my office and into your hands has been prayed over and designed with intentionality. This isn't just a business, it is my calling and my ministry.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.
— Proverbs 3:5-6
