About

In my life, creativity has always been prevalent. Doing "arts & crafts" has long been my #1 hobby, stemming from my Girl Scouting days, on through college where I studied graphic design at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor.

Creativity aside, here are a few other random tidbits about me:
♦ I've collected gems & minerals since I was five years old, and still geek out over geology, rock shops, and national parks like Yellowstone.
♦ When it comes to reading, I love YA fiction. Harry Potter (by JK Rowling), and The Selection (by Kiera Cass) are my two all-time favorite series. I'm one of those crazed readers who can open a book, and completely devour it in a matter of days or even hours. I just can't resist a great story.
♦ My favorite Bible verse, is Proverbs 3:5-6. It really sums up how I want to live every day, trusting God with everything.
