Welcome to my blog where I enjoy keeping track of tinkering and writing endeavors, sharing favorite things and places, and using made-up words.
I am so excited to announce that my first book, Tinkered Treasures is now available! You may notice me referring to it as my Baby Girl.
When I began my blog "cottage" (fall ‘08), I sort of envisioned it to be an instant venue for my DIY adventures: funny stories about stripping wallpaper and sweating over applying crackle medium. Somehow along the way I rediscovered my love of creating and writing.
I credit much of my artistic reawakening to the sparkling inspiration, warm support and generous encouragement of my cherished friends in the blogging community.
When I'm not writing or snipping paper, I am the married, silly mom of two creative boys. I work as a communications consultant and also contribute articles to magazines such as Romantic Country and Romantic Homes, and to the online resource for parents Kidoinfo.
Thank you for visiting and happy blogging!
