INTERESTING NOTES, PERHAPS

  • If I’m not running after my spunky two-year-old son, Ozzy, I’m either crafting or attending to my 50+ houseplants. I’m an avid Harry Potter fan (where are my Potterheads?) and an even bigger lover of animals, especially my labradoodle, Wally. 

  • Creating art is my therapy. From painting canvases to wood burning and everything in between. My husband jokes that our walls have shrunk by inches with how many times I’ve repainted our homes interior; our pink kitchen is a prime example.
