About Me

AutoCAD-er by day – Maker by night

My mom has taught me many things, among them how to use a sewing machine and the notion that things should be used.  Virtually nothing in our house was for show.  The quilt on my bed was a wedding gift to my mom, the wooden spoons in the kitchen came from a trip to Africa, the necklace that I wore frequently in junior high belonged to my grandmother.  In this way, everything in our house had a story.  I love those stories, the stories of everyday things.

Now I live in Dallas with my husband in our teeny tiny apartment where everything is used because there is no room for anything that isn’t. I sit at my dining table and I make the things that I hope people will use. I write about them here to begin their story.

Lily June Strawberry Girl….what does it all mean?

Lily June Strawberry Girl is a remnant from my time in architecture school. One of my first assignments was to create a life size representation of myself out of found objects, ie: make a robot out of trash. Of course, it wasn’t actually a robot and she did end up in the trash the summer after my freshmen year, but here she lives on.

Thanks for stopping by. If you get a chance..
