This is it!

25 Jan

Hey there!  Glad you found me!  I’m hoping to make this a place for me to chat about parenting, crafting, trying to make my own whatever, loving the Gar, money…. Ok, you get the idea.  Whatever comes to mind.

A bit about me.  I grew up in a small Dutch town on the south side of Chicago until I made the leap to college and moved myself (and stayed) to Michigan.  There I became a bachelors degree holder in graphic design, a wife to my best friend and mommy (mommers, mama, etc) to my smart as a whip, conniving, stinkin’ cute little girls which are both going to be big sisters come this July.  I worked for nine years in the large format printing world as a graphic designer/creative director but this past summer brought some change of heart to my changing heart.

We decided that I needed to resign from my job and become a stay at home mom and freelance graphic designer.  And I’ve never looked back!  Yeah, it’s hard going from two incomes to one, but at the end of every day, I love where I’m at and where our family is headed!

So with that very short bio (which I’m sure will be elaborated on over time), I’m excited to share my findings, my ideas and my stories with you!
