Growing up, I did not like to be held back. I was #MissIndependent and too big for my britches some days. My parents ran a tight ship and kept me on a short leash. My typical response for requesting more length on that leash, my Junior and Senior year of high school, went something like this:

I love to decorate my house with art that has meaning to my life. For instance my living room has an entire wall filled with a collage of images and trinkets dedicated to North Carolina. All but one photo on this wall was taken by yours truly. This wall has photos from the NC State Bell Tower, to Fort Macon State Park, to Yates Mill, to lighthouses.
All photos are professionally printed on luster paper. I found an amazing print house that is professional and easy to work with. I’ve loved the color and quality of all of the products I’ve received from them. It’s a huge contrast to the one hour prints you can pick up at a local store.
I’ve tinkered with the idea of opening an Etsy shop for a couple of years, and now it is finally out there. So today, my baby is officially launched out into the world! I would love to expand and eventually include other products that I’ve designed for my own house, that others could buy. But for now, it’s just one step at a time.
