I am a purveyor of all things beautiful. I love to create and make something from nothing. I began my creative journey at a young age by receiving my first sewing machine at age 5. I am a self-professed “Domestic Diva,” love everything crafty, and a die hard Martha Stewart fan. I’ve also been dubbed “The Swiss army knife of design” for my array of talents and interests. I have always had a deep love for beauty, but planning my own nuptials in 2010 was the catalyst to making it an everyday occurrence. We moved across the country where I pursued wedding planning and event design and fell in love with the design process and graphic design. I live with the loves of my life, my husband, two puppies (Ok 75 lb dogs do not make puppies but they will always be puppies to me) and our first baby boy, Grayson River.
My hope is to inspire others to live a creative life. I love to be surrounded by beautiful things and want to inspire others with the beauty we have in this world. My background in wedding planning has given me a unique skillset that greatly benefits Farmstead clients. My goal in every aspect of Farmstead Design Studio is to create unique, personalized projects that reflect who the client is. I’m not into cookie-cutter anything! Your business, home and paper should reflect who you are and my job is to make that happen! Through pretty paper for every occasion, interior design and home decor for a beautiful space to live in and brand styling for businesses sharing their gifts, I am making this world a more beautiful place, one project at a time.
