I'm a just-outside-of-Pittsburgh artist and stationer that finds joy in all the little things! I'm an introverted, puppy loving, small-town girl with a heart for creating and encouraging others.
I am an artist because counseling and the freedom in God's grace has allowed me redirect my depression and anxiety into something redeeming and beautiful, and I try to offer that freedom and grace to the people in my life. Along with that grace and freedom, I also love to give physical gifts! Gifts and words of affirmation are my love languages, so if you give me a gift or tell me something nice, we'll be best friends forever! I'm an aspiring dog mom, Titanic enthusiast, and my favorite time of the year is the "-ber" months - October, November & December. If you love everything about Christmas, I'd love to discuss with you over a peppermint latte and the White Christmas soundtrack.
Most days you'll find me bundled up under a cozy blanket at my greenish-blue antique craft table, painting flowers or lettering while enjoying a candle from Target, a lukewarm cup of coffee, and watching something on Netflix that I'm probably seeing for the tenth time (I get attached easily). Although I consider myself an artist, handletterer and stationer, my favorite title is Mrs. Carpenter. I'm slightly obsessed with my husband, Ben, and I'm not ashamed!
When it comes to the things I create, my hope is that I can offer joy and whimsy, while celebrating every little thing. I love working with clients to create products that celebrate their personalities and visions. I love light and airy things (especially if there are flowers involved), and I desire to offer joy through paper goods and art. As an emotional and sensitive person with a passion for the freedom to feel things, I love to make things that make people feel things - especially things that produce tears of joy.
