My love for design and crafts has existed since I was a young girl constantly rearranging my room and looking for fun things to put on the walls. When I was 8, my parents built and furnished a dollhouse for me, starting a life-long love of small things. I work as a career counselor and do writing and re-design on the side to flex my creative muscles. I have been published in a number of hobby magazines and turned this expertise into a workshop at the Loft Literary Center in Minneapolis, MN. I have also studied interior re-design which is helping people use what they have in new ways to make their homes more comfortable. Our duplex is my creative lab for trying out all of my ideas.
