Welcome to my page, my life and my story.  I am first and foremost a wife and a mom. Making our home a place of comfort and happiness has always driven me to create and design, and is what has led me to this place in time.

Makers love to make! Whether it is designing a new earring style, changing up a room or painting a door hanger, I'm all in.  Working with people, as I do in my day job, I have learned to listen to their stories, their loves, and hurts and have worked to help solve their problems.  I guess that is why I love puzzles and crafting pretty much anything.  It allows me to take different pieces and put them together in a certain way so that the desired look is achieved.

Through design courses at the New York Institute of Art and Design, I learned valuable elements of the design process from floor plans to color and furniture selection.  As a do-it-yourself-er, I am passionate about e-Design and Home Staging, being able to help others create their ideal space.  So whether you need a new pair of earrings, a picture frame or a new wall color, I'm here to help!
