Raised in sunny Orlando, Florida, I still have a soft spot for all things southern, even if Florida is the only state in the South that isn’t really southern.
The Midwest has a lot to love about it too as I learned from my first stint in Michigan at Calvin College. Calvin taught me how to be an agent of renewal in a broken world and ever since I find myself continually seeking to find and share Joy with those I meet.
I spent a few years in DC with some great organizations like International Justice Mission and the Pew Charitable Trusts learning how to build and advance life-changing movements. Now I’m back in Michigan with my awesome husband, Matt, and whenever I have free time I love to make all variety of things citron & lovely.
That means you’ll probably see a lot of things with green hues surfacing here, things for making home feel a little warmer and things for celebrating the lives of friends and family. You’ll find some (hopefully) helpful categories– projects filtered by celebration type such as weddings, housewarmings, and birthdays and projects grouped by tutorial for paper crafting with the Silhouette cameo and hand-stitch embroidery.
Join me and enjoy!
