While pregnant with my first daughter, Lauren I stood in her un-painted, un-decorated room and felt a rush of excitement. This was an opportunity for me to begin writing her story. I saw endless possibilities of color, texture and art. It was at that moment that a new creative life began within me. It was my chance to give back to the beautiful gift that God was giving me.

I love my home and I love learning how to make it more beautiful. I adore handcrafted projects because they are meaningful and they fuel my desire to create.  It’s an opportunity for me to craft a home filled with memories and moments that will last forever. You see, Motherhood has inspired me.  Black and white photography reminds me of my mother’s love for the art. Vintage finds remind me to celebrate the past. Counting my blessings keeps my life in perspective. Once in a while I’ll throw on an old Elvis record and have a dance party because it keeps me young.  If you’ve found your way here, I hope you sit and stay awhile. I hope you find a spark amidst your busy life. And I hope you feel inspired to give more to those you love!

Inspired By Giving The Blog was born out of my love for creating handmade gifts and has turned into an outlet for me to share what I’ve learned along the way.  My shop Inspired By Giving allows me to give others meaningful nursery art and handmade cards. I’d love for the opportunity to work with you and create a one of a kind piece that you’ll cherish for years to come.

Honest to goodness, I’m so glad you’ve stopped by! Say hello and tell me a little about yourself.
