I spend my days working on a number of different creative endeavors. Sewing, graphic design, photography, interior design, crafting and more. If it's creative, I'm interested. I grew up in a very artsy household, learning to sew at the early age of 8 years old... scrunchies were my project of choice in those days! Now I love to combine all of my hobbies by designing sewing tutorials for other creative people to use and be inspired by. When I'm not working, I'm out exploring the lesser known parts of Boston or eating at hip new restaurants. Or shopping. Or hiking. Or looking for an ever-elusive Boston street parking spot (preferably on the left - I love a good challenge). For more crafty inspiration, check out my blog:
