Hello, hello!

My name’s Cristi and I’m a 38-year-old artist, writer, and blogger. And of course, a work-at-home, homeschooling mama too. I love it and wouldn’t trade this life for anything. It’s everything I ever wanted and so much more.

Oh, and did I mention that we’re almost always knee-deep in some sort of DIY/remodeling project? Yep! Living a creative life is all kinds of awesome!
