At a time when I thought I might never live in a place of my own choosing, I started to write this blog.  It was about being creative, experiencing life and creating home in a million places, and finding the bright side when I needed to get better at that.  It has also become the place where I publicly reconcile my love of clothing, textiles, and fibers with my concern for their environmental impact.
I am thrilled to be back in Minnesota to raise my family, something I never thought would work out, but there are still more opportunities than ever before to reach for the bright side.
In addition to developing this website and writing blog posts for others, I knit a lot and sew a little.  I create illustrations and draft patterns for garments.  I gravitate towards natural fibers and clean lines, and always enjoy doing things by hand.  I prefer sturdy denim, cozy sweaters, clogs, orderly closets, wooden pencils, a consistent routine, life over lifestyle, writing alongside making, and the long way home.
Thank you for visiting my website.
