"So, tell me about yourself."
Am I the only one who hates that question in an interview?!
I've always had a hard time answering it, but here's my best shot:
  • I'm pretty sure I'm a Type A, but have days when I seem very Type B. 
  • I am my own worst client, as evidenced by my home. 
  • I can lose hours of my day reading on my Kindle or looking at all the eye candy on Instagram.  
  • I love to laugh and I love to play.  I am not my age.  I am as young as I feel, and I don't think I have grown up yet.  (:
  • I fully acknowledge that everything I have is a blessing from God. 
  • I miss my mom more and more each day, but I am who I am because of her. 
  • My husband is not only my best friend and high school sweetheart, but also my partner in crime business.  I love how well we work off of one another!  
  • We live in the country in a small town {less than 5,000 peeps} in South Texas, and I like it, but I loved living in the city, too, and miss it.  I'd run away to Europe -- specifically France, Germany or anywhere in Scandinavia, too, if I could.
  • I love, love, love design.  All aspects of design:  interior, exterior, clothing, furniture, home d├ęcor, food, automobile, etc.  If it can be created, I'm probably into it. 
  • I love creating things.  I have been crafting for as long as I can remember, started "designing" in junior high, began dabbling in graphic designs in college, and I am still going.  My hands, and brain, can't stop.
  • I firmly believe that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and that holds true to design.  What one person sees as good design, who am I to contradict that?  It may not be my style, but that doesn't make it good or bad.
  • I've been told I'm a bit of a Renaissance woman, and I have to agree.  There are too many things I want to try and not nearly enough time to do it all!

Because of my love of design, I got my degree in Interior Design {which started as BS in Architecture} from UTSA {Go Roadrunners!}, then began chronicling all my stories here of things I love to do: designing, crafting, baking, sewing, party planning, and whatever else floats my boat.  The evolution of all my projects is the best part to me because I love seeing my ideas grow from a spark in my head to the physical, final product, whether it turns out like I imagined, or better or worse!  I am now working on my Graphic Design degree, which has become my newest passion.

So take a look at my home renovations, my graphic design endeavors, my attempt to bring junk back to life, my baking & sewing skills put to the test, and whatever else I wanna share with you guys!  I hope you enjoy my ramblings!!

ta-ta for now...
