Hello! I'm a mother, wife, artist, and born with an insatiable need to create beautiful things. Hence my blog name. I couldn't decide which facet of my creative endeavors to highlight, so why compromise? I just included them all: painting, monotypes, baking/cake decorating, sewing, scrapbooking, landscape/interior design, and (hopefully soon) textile design.
I graduated with a BFA in printmaking from BYU, and am very happy to be getting back into the artistic mode again after taking a 5-year break.
My blog is a journal of the things I love to create...plus an inevitable photo here and there of my 3 darling kiddos, of course!
I love working with my hands and making things, but I also love music, I love to read and play sports - especially basketball. when I was a kid I would read as often and as much as I could, even reading a book while standing in the lunch line. I don't have much time (correction: I don't make much time) to read at this point in my life, but I still like to sneak in a good book once in awhile. As for basketball...um, let's just say I was a lot better at it in high school. I'm totally out of practice!
