Fitness for Fiber!

"Balance is key". A phrase heard all too often in today's fast paced and health trend obsessed world. Easier said than done, right? I've struggled for as long as I can remember with balancing habits of both physical and mental health with work and recreation. I'm famous for going through short bursts of physical exercise, then retreating back into my normal routine. In graduate school, I had my running phase. I would run 4 miles x four times a week and not think twice about it. Then, as soon as school started; I'd stop cold turkey. Recently, I joined a local...

When I traveled to Italy in college I saved my money the entire trip just so that when I arrived at the Florence leather markets, I could buy a backpack.

It's very obvious that Jimmy Bean's Wool...

Hook Nook Maker Series Blog-Now Live!

  Today is a very exciting day. Months ago, I submitted a short description of my work and a handful of photos to @the.hook.nook for a chance to be featured in THNLife Blog. Weeks later in the middle of a snow storm, I received an email letting me know I was selected as a guest author. Remember the scene where Elle Woods gets into Harvard? That reaction, x 7. This blog sheds light on what making means to me and how it’s influenced my mental health over the past few years. This topic is so personal to me and has...
