Tell us about yourself...

My name is Jamie and I am wife and a mom to a beautiful little girl named Sabrina. I'm a wannabe graphic designer/artist and blog junkie

What do you create?

I'd like to think I'm an artist. I just love making things look pretty! Whether that's a craft, an organized closet, graphic design, painting, drawing, a recipe, or just taking pictures of our life I like to consider it something I "created". Sort of a jack of all trades I guess :)

Why do you create?

Everyone has something that makes them feel alive. Creating does that for me. I love starting with nothing and ending with something beautiful. I love the feeling that you get when you're all done with a project and you just want to share it with the world. My daughter is also a huge inspiration and reason behind my creations.

Do you sell your creations, if so how?

Yes! What I'm most proud of is our The Letter 4 + 1 shop. It features designs that my sister and I created and 100% of our proceeds go to charity. I'm currently working on a paper goods/organization line for my own shop!

What are your favorite materials to work with?

The good ole pencil is still my favorite. There's nothing more relaxing to me than sketching out doodles and patterns with clean white sheet of paper and a pencil.

When do you find time to create?

Nap time and bed time! Lets just say I get very little sleep ;)

Any advice to share about creating a business or getting started on creating?

I have heard it over and over again that it has to be something you are passionate about. Our charity shop I enjoy working on no matter how the sales are doing and the work doesn't really seem like "work". Creating a business is a ton of work, you'll get burned out fast if it's not something you are passionate about and believe in.
