Story
Tagline
Blogger at Craftwhack and Lifewhack
Introduction
I am a creative lifestyle blogger at Lifewhack, where I entertain and delight you with DIYs, stories, cool people and things and stuff. 

I have an art background and live in the Chicago area with my photo-studio-owning husband, and our mix of weirdo kids. I am a: fan of the suburbs, dog-lover, napper, iced green tea guzzler, treadmill trotter.

Come hang out with me on Pinterest, the loveliest place on Earth.

Some other things you should probably know about me are that I dye my hair, eat peanut butter from the jar, and watch The Bachelor.
