I have been papercrafting for as long as I can remember. It started with a love of coloring and drawing, but it has progressed to include obsessively fun crafts like card making and scrapbooking. I’ve started to hoard supplies because they make me happy, so I’m hoping that this new blog will help me use up my stash in a fun specific way.
I’m a Chicago gal who has spent her career in the non-profit sector. Every position I have been lucky to have has been with an agency whose mission is to do good. I wouldn’t have this any other way! Sure, I could use a higher salary (who couldn’t), but there is nothing greater than waking up and knowing that I what helps me put food on my table also helps communities. I feel good about what I do daily and that’s incredible.
My biggest struggle is my weight and lack of fitness. I’ve started on a path to find the right balance of eating better while still enjoying my foodie adventures. I’m also on a mission to be healthier every day – so I am in search of the right mix of physical activity that keeps me motivated, sees results and makes me laugh.
