1) Jewelry made with my girls’ artwork.

1) Pursuing a career I wasn’t interested in but did it anyways because I thought it would provide a secure future.


2) Rushing through things resulting in…lots more mistakes.


1) I like to mix up things - styles, patterns, colors, time periods - that don’t normally go together.

2) I make things for my girls and their needs that reflect their personalities

**************************************************************************************************** things about...Craft did a profile series of their staff called 5,4,3,2,1 Things and invited their readers to do the same. I learned a little bit about myself while answering these questions. I mainly reflected on the people who inspire me and how I would like to emulate them. For example, if I have the privilege of being a grandmother, I hope my grandchildren speak of me as my dad speaks of his grandmother.

You can too…just write a similar post answering the questions and post a link here in the comments section. Can’t wait to read your 54321!



  1. This is a really nice piece. I love the sticker maker too! I use mine for pretty much everything that needs glue that I can fit in it!

  2. Hi Steph!

    You know I love your necklaces - they are so cute! And I love how you inspired by your children so much because it's totally my style. :D

    I also pursued a career I wasn't interested in . . . and I don't quite fit in anywhere either. Maybe that's why I like you!

    Great 5,4,3,2,1!!!

  3. Love this, Steph! It's so true - how the people in our lives influence our creativity.

    But seriously - how do you get so much done with twins?!? I'm in awe.

  4. I hopped over here from One Pretty Thing. I love your blog! You make such nice things!
    I might steal your 1-5 idea for my blog in the future. It's fun to think about things like this.
    Love the vintage wooden spools. I saw a cute project for them: glue them onto a wooden plaque and hang necklaces or other things!
